Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

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

Before investing in a technology that has a single function, consider a geothermal system. A Rochester geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution not only provides heating and cooling from a single unit, it also gives you free hot water.

A desuperheater captures the wasted heat normally created by a unit's compressor and uses it to condition the water. This excess heat is generated in both heating and cooling modes, but the hot water benefit is greatest as the unit is cooling. In the summer, geothermal units run more often and can supply most, if not all, of your hot water. However, 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 supply 100% of your hot water needs, we also offer dedicated hydronic equipment that's easily installed. 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 another reason to choose geothermal. Set up an appointment with one of our specialists to evaluate your needs, and whether or not a WaterFurnace Rochester geothermal solution makes sense for you.
