Our high temperature heat pump is a water-to-water heat pump with a twist. Instead of using a typical water well or ground loop, its heat source is clean incoming liquid that has been pre-heated to between 45°F (7°C) and 90°F (32°C). Usually this heat source comes from a buffer tank on the indoor side of a geothermal heat pump, or a cooling loop from an industrial process. Using this pre-heated incoming liquid, our high temperature heat pump will heat domestic hot water to as high as 160°F (71°C).
This type of heat would typically be used for heating domestic hot water to 140°F (60°C) or any hydronic heating system that was designed for high temperature water from a boiler. This heat pump could also be used to provide heat for hot water baseboards.
