5 Reasons to Upgrade to a Water Source Heat Pump

Can you feel that nip in the air? It’s getting chilly outside! If it’s time to replace the heat pump inside your Carencro, LA, home, consider upgrading to a water source heat pump. These systems offer many benefits to homeowners as well as the environment. Our heating and air conditioning service technicians at Lee’s Air Conditioning Co explain how does a water source heat pump work and five reasons why you should upgrade to this type of a home comfort system.


How Does a Water Source Heat Pump Work?

Heat pumps use a power source and a chemical coolant to transfer heat from one environment to another. In the summertime, the heat pump works like an air conditioner. It transfers heat from within your home and sinks it into the outdoor environment. In the case of a water source heat pump, the heat sink is the groundwater. In the wintertime, heat from the outdoor environment is transferred to the inside of your home and pushed through the air handler into the air vents to warm your home. Water source heat pumps use the heat contained within water to warm the home during the winter.
Water Source Heat Pump Pros

In contrast to an air source heat pump, a water source heat pump requires access to water. The pros of this type of a system are many, especially in moderate climates like Carencro, LA.
1. Energy Efficiency

Water source heat pumps offer exemplary energy efficiency for residential heating and cooling. If the heat contained within the water is not sufficient for heating the home in the winter, the system has a built in fuel supply to use natural gas or electricity to heat the water and warm the home.
2. Environmentally Friendly

Water source heat pumps take advantage of renewable energy within the earth. The system also uses an environmentally friendly chemical coolant to transfer heat from one environment to another.
3. Low Cost

Water source heat pumps offer low monthly heating and cooling costs. Many homeowners find that their monthly utility bill decreases by 15 percent or more after installing one of these efficient systems.
4. It Heats and Cools

With a water source heat pump, you don’t need a separate central air conditioning system. This single system will both heat and cool your home effectively.
5. Capacity

Water is more efficient at heat transfer than air. As a result, a water source heat pump has a great enough capacity that it can be used to heat or cool a large home or even a multi-unit building.
Water source heat pumps are a cost effective and eco-conscious alternative to the traditional heat pump. Give us a call today to learn more or schedule an installation of your new heating system.
