Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

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

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

A desuperheater captures the wasted heat normally generated by a unit's compressor and applies it to modify the water. Although excess heat is generated in both heating and cooling modes, the hot water advantage 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 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 system.

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. 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. Set up an appointment with one of our specialists to evaluate your needs, and whether or not a WaterFurnace Columbus geothermal solution makes sense for you.
