Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a variety of new products on the market that seek 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 Rochester ?

Before buying a technology only capable of one thing, 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 wasted heat normally created by a unit's compressor and uses it to condition the water. Although surplus heat is generated in both heating and cooling modes, the hot water benefit is greatest as the unit is cooling. In the summer, 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 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, the geothermal hydronic equipment qualifies for the 30% federal tax credit. However, unlike solar solutions, geothermal provides hot water 24 hours a day, rain or shine.
