Why Install a Water Source Heat Pump in Boca Raton?

Water source heat pumps have gained some popularity in recent years. But some people in Boca Raton are unfamiliar with the benefits of water source heat pumps and how they can both heat and cool your home. We’ve put together a description of how water source heat pumps work and some of the benefits to installing one.

How Water Source Heat Pumps Work

Water source heat pumps are a component of a geothermal heating and air conditioning system. As their name implies, water source heat pumps use water or a water/refrigerant mix to both heat and cool your home or building. There are two types of water source heat pumps: closed loop and open loop. In a open loop, water from a source like a river or lake drawn into a pipe and circulated to the heat exchanger where heat is extracted. The water is then returned to the lake. In a closed loop system, a refrigerant is circulated through a closed loop of pipes and absorbs the heat from the ground.

Increased Efficiency

Water source heat pumps use the renewable energy found in ground. The water source heat pump doesn’t require any fuel to burn in order to create heat. This reduces typical heating costs dramatically. Additionally, with high-efficiency heat pumps, the electricity required to circulate the water can be drastically reduced.

Less Space

Without the need for a noisy compressor, the systems necessary to run a geothermal system take up less space. This makes them very good candidates for retrofit projects. For homes and businesses that have the space for the loops, a geothermal system might make a lot of sense.


Geothermal systems are known for their longevity. Because much of the system is underground, it experiences very little wear from the elements. The loops can last anywhere from 25 to 50 years. The heat pumps often have a lifespan of 20 years as well.
