Ducted Open-Loop, Water Source Heat Pump – New Construction

A ducted open loop water source heat pump is an efficient electric home heating and cooling system.

How Does it Work?

A ducted open loop water source heat pump uses traditional air ducts and vents throughout a home to distribute warm or cool air. To heat a home, it absorbs heat from a drilled outdoor water well then moves the heat to the air handler to circulate warm air throughout the home. During the summer it absorbs heat from the home then moves the heat to the outdoor water well to dissipate it.
