The research assesses the performance of the water-to-water heat pump system installed in Cheongju water treatment plant for cooling and heating ventilation. In summer season monthly averaged COP is ranged from 3.85 to 4.56 according to the water source temperature, and the performance is increased as the raw water temperature is dropped. While, heating performance is increased for the high temperature water source, and the monthly averaged COP is changed from 2.92 to 3.82. The correlation of the water source temperature and the heat pump performance shows a linear tendency by the simple regression of average data. In heating, the COP of heat pump system linearly rises according to the water source temperature. In comparison, the COP in cooling linearly reduces as the raw water temperature is raised. The goodness of fit at the simple regression shows the coefficient of determination 82% in cooling, 46% in heating. The electric cost of water-to-water heat pump is reduced by 40% compared to that of air source heat pump.
