Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a series of new products on the market that look to deliver hot water more efficiently. New technologies such as on-demand generation, heat pump water heaters are just a few options available. For residents in Western North Carolina area, don't these options make sense?

Before investing in a technology that only has one function, consider a geothermal solution. A Western North Carolina geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution provides heating, cooling, and free hot water - all from a single unit.

A desuperheater captures the normally wasted heat produced by a unit's compressor and applies it to condition the water. Although surplus heat is created in both heating and cooling modes, the hot water benefit is greatest while the unit is cooling. In the summer, geothermal units run more frequently and can provide most, if not all, of your hot water. During the colder fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much surplus 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. But unlike solar solutions, geothermal provides hot water 24 hours a day, rain or shine.
