Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a series of new products on the market that aim to supply hot water more efficiently. This includes newer technologies like on-demand production, heat pump water heaters, and solar solutions. For residents in Central area, don't these options make sense?

Before investing in a technology only capable of one thing, consider a geothermal solution. A Central geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution not only offers heating and cooling from a single unit, it also gives you free hot water.

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

If you'd like to have geothermal provide 100% of your hot water needs, we also offer dedicated hydronic equipment that's easily installed. 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.

"Free hot water just another reason to switch to geothermal. Set up an appointment today with one of our specialists to evaluate your needs, and whether or not a WaterFurnace Central geothermal solution makes sense for you.
