Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a series of new products on the market that seek to supply hot water more efficiently. This includes newer technologies like on-demand generation, heat pump water heaters, and solar solutions. For residents in Northern Colorado area, don't these options make sense?

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

A desuperheater is a component that captures the wasted heat normally generated by a unit's compressor and uses it to condition the water. This excess heat is produced in both heating and cooling modes, but the hot water advantage is greatest as the unit is cooling. During the summer months, geothermal units run more often 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 have to rely more on your existing water heating system.

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.
