Water-Source Heat Pump and Geothermal Heat Pump System Applications
Water-Source and geothermal heat pump systems are comprised of individual packaged units that transfer heat via a single- or two-pipe water loop. Each unit can be used in either heating or cooling mode year-round and loop temperature is maintained via a boiler/tower combination or earth-coupled (geothermal) loop. Each zone has complete control of its heating/cooling mode and each unit is independent from the others. This means if one unit goes down, the whole system is not affected. Controls can be as simple as one unit and one thermostat. Water-Source and geothermal heat pump systems are the most energy, cost, and space efficient of any system in the industry.
