Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a variety of innovative products on the market that aim to provide hot water more efficiently. New technologies such as on-demand generation, heat pump water heaters are just a few options available. Do these options make sense for residents in ?

Before buying a technology that only has one function, consider a geothermal heat pump add-on. A geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution provides heating, cooling, and free hot water - all from a single unit.

A desuperheater captures the wasted heat normally generated by a unit's compressor and applies it to condition the water. Although additional heat is produced in both heating and cooling modes, the hot water benefit is greatest while the unit is cooling. During the summer months, geothermal units run more frequently and can provide most, if not all, of your hot water. However, during the colder fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much excess heat - you'll have to use your existing water heating process.

Waterfurnace also offers dedicated hydronic equipment that's easily installed if you would to have geothermal provide 100% of your hot water needs. Like solar solutions, they qualify for the 30% federal tax credit. But unlike solar solutions, geothermal provides hot water 24 hours a day, rain or shine.

Hot water - it's one more reason to switch to geothermal products. Set up an appointment with one of our specialists to assess your needs, and whether or not a WaterFurnace geothermal solution makes sense for you.
