Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a lot of new products on the market that look to supply 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 Chillicothe ?

Before you buy a technology that only has one function, consider a geothermal heat pump add-on. A Chillicothe 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 produced by a unit's compressor and applies 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. 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 use your existing water heating system.

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

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