The Water Source Heat Pump is a pump that uses water in order to heat and cool, which makes it very environmentally safe as well as very efficient. In order to solve the problem of different temperatures scattered through a building, this heating pump uses a water loop. Because of this loop, this unit can be installed anywhere within the building because it will connect to the water loop that is running throughout the whole building. A cooling tower as well as a boiler is used in order to add and reject heat to this loop through a natural resource such as a pond, lake, well, or the ground.
The different types of buildings that you will see the Water Source Heat Pump used in is schools, hotels, condominiums, apartments, health care facilities, and office buildings of all sizes. This pump uses the same basic application that the geothermal heating pump uses by accessing the earth as its natural resource for heat and air conditioning. There are many different brands of this type of pump, which include McQuay, Amcor, Friedrich, Soleus, GE, Climate Master, Quality Smith, and Trane, which is a very well known and trusted name in this industry.
The McQuay has a popular Water Source Heat Pump which is the Enfinity console in-room unit. There is also a floor mounted model of this unit as well. This model will exceed the ASHRAE standards that are set at 90.1 efficient by more than 35 percent, which helps to save on the energy bill that these companies receive. The Enfinity with a model number A/SP 31-258 features a Microtech III controller that can be stand-alone or mounted on the wall. It is the unit that controls the heating pump itself. It also has the GentleFlo fan that keeps this unit running very quietly.
