Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

04/23/2011

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a variety of innovative products on the market that aim to supply hot water more efficiently. This includes newer technologies like on-demand generation, heat pump water heaters, and solar solutions. Do these options make sense for residents in Northern Colorado ?

Before buying a technology that's capable of one thing, consider a geothermal system. A Northern Colorado geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution not only offers heating and cooling from a single unit, it also gives you free hot water.

A desuperheater is a component that captures the normally wasted heat created by a unit's compressor and uses it to treat the water. This additional heat is generated in both heating and cooling modes, but the hot water benefit is greatest as the unit is cooling. During the summer months, geothermal units run more frequently and can provide most, if not all, of your hot water. During the fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much excess heat - you'll need to utilize 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, they qualify 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 switch to geothermal. Set up an appointment with one of our specialists to evaluate your needs, and decide if a WaterFurnace Northern Colorado geothermal solution makes sense for you.
