Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a lot of innovative products on the market that seek to deliver 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 Ebensburg ?

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

A desuperheater is a component that captures the normally wasted heat created by a unit's compressor and applies it to treat the water. Although surplus heat is produced in both heating and cooling modes, the hot water advantage is greatest while the unit is cooling. During the summer months, geothermal units run more often and can supply most, if not all, of your hot water. During the colder fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much excess heat - you'll have to utilize your existing water heating method.

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

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