Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

04/23/2011

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a lot of innovative products on the market that aim to provide hot water more efficiently. New technologies such as on-demand production, heat pump water heaters are just a few options available. The question is, do these options make sense here in Rochester ?

Before you buy a technology that only has one function, consider a geothermal solution. A Rochester geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution offers heating, cooling, and free hot water - all from a single unit.

A desuperheater captures the normally wasted heat generated by a unit's compressor and uses it to condition the water. Although excess heat is generated 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 often 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 surplus heat - you'll need to rely more on your existing water heating method.

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. Unlike solar solutions, geothermal provides hot water 24 hours a day, rain or shine.

Hot water - it's another reason to switch to geothermal products. Set up an appointment with one of our specialists to assess your needs, and decide if a WaterFurnace Rochester geothermal solution makes sense for you.
