Water-Source Heat Pumps
Are you looking for an alternative to traditional heating and cooling methods for your Boca Raton, FL, home or business? A water-source heat pump (WSHP) could be right for you.
Water-source heat pumps (also known as geothermal) are energy efficient and reliable, which translates to savings for you in the long run! These systems are convenient and environmentally friendly too.
Ferrara’s Air installs, replaces, repairs, and maintains many water-source heat pump brands throughout Florida. Are you ready to upgrade to a geothermal heat pump? Let our experts recommend the best make and model for you.
How Does a Water-Source Heat Pump Work?
Water-source heat pumps transfer heat through a closed-looped system that's installed in a body of water-such as a lake or pond-or a cooling tower.
During our hot summer months, the heat pump extracts heat from your Boca Raton, FL, home or building and transfers it to the water source. The process works in reverse in the winter, and the heat pump captures heat from the water and transfers it to your building.
A water-source heat pump is a reliable method for heating and cooling since the water's temperature remains consistent. Unlike a traditional air-source heat pump, water-source heat pumps are unaffected by the outdoor temperature.
What Are the Benefits of Water-Source Heat Pumps?
Some of the benefits of using a water-source heat pump to provide heating and cooling to your home or business include:
- They help reduce your carbon footprint and help protect the planet.
- They conveniently offer both heating and cooling.
- They can help decrease your energy use and costs.
- They are efficient and can increase your home's value.
- There are tax credits and incentives available that can help you recoup some of the cost of the investment.
Starting in 2023, the 25D Energy Efficient Home Improvement Tax Credit will provide a 30 percent tax credit for geothermal heating.
