Water can be used as an alternative to the ground or air as the energy source for your heat pump. Water has very good thermal conductivity properties so if you have access to moving water (river, lake or even the sea), this can make for a very efficient heat pump.

About Water Source Heat Pump

 

There are 2 main ways that water can be used. Closed-loop:  similar to ground source, pipes or coils filled with glycol is laid on the river/lake bed to absorb energy from the water. Capital costs are reduced as no trenching is required. Secondly,  Open-source: this is where water is pumped to a heat pump and the heat pump absorbs the energy directly from the water. This method is ideal if you don’t have ownership rights to the body of water in question but it requires filtration and pumps which mean greater maintenance and service considerations

 

 

 

 

Water source heat pumps are the cheapest to run – typically offering efficiencies of 450-500 per cent – and have a lifespan of 25 to 30 years, compared to an average boiler’s lifespan of 10 to 12 years.

If you plan to install a water source system (closed-loop or open-source), water temperature data is required to prove that the min water temperature is rarely lower than 4’C. Environment Agency licences may also be required.

Service

Service goes to the heart of our offering as a business. From our initial design and consultation to our award-winning installation and aftercare, we focus on delivering a quality solution on time and budget.

Expertise

Our legacy in renewables means our projects are efficiently designed and run. We deliver expert installations based on many years of experience. This experience means we can offer clients technically superior solutions that enhance the benefits of renewables.

Harrogate Homebuilding & Renovating Show

The Pure Renewables team had a busy and productive time at the Harrogate Homebuilding & Renovating Show last weekend. It was full-on, exhausting but very rewarding with over 100 meaningful conversations over the course of the three days. Our MD, Chris Whitelock, also delivered a masterclass seminar on the Sunday morning about, of course, heat […]

UK government to commit to 2050 climate target

Greenhouse gas emissions in the UK will be cut to almost zero by 2050, under the terms of a new government plan to tackle climate change.   The Prime Minister says that Britain has a “moral duty” to cut emissions. This will need a massive investment in clean energy generation including Ground Source Heat Pumps, […]

Helping architects switch on to renewables

Many architects don’t fully understand renewable technology, which is why we’ve just produced a new brochure to highlight the products we offer and their benefits. After working in the sector for over 11 years, it’s still evident to me that many architects don’t appreciate what renewable technology can provide their clients, and a lack of […]
