Our high-temperature heat pump (WH Series) is a liquid-to-water heat pump with a twist. The WH Series heat pump can use as its source either a typical open loop (provided the entering water temperature does not fall below 45°F (7°C) or, in commercial applications, any clean incoming liquid that has been pre-heated to between 45°F (7°C) and 122°F (50°C). Some heat sources for commercial applications include 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 (70°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.
