Answer: An open loop system uses groundwater from a conventional well or water bodies like ponds, rivers, lakes etc. The water is pumped to the heat pump through a loop. The heat in the water is extracted in winter for heating the house. In summers the heat of the house is rejected into this water. The uncontaminated water is disposed of in an appropriate manner.
