Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a lot 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. The question is, do these options make sense here in Green Bay ?

Before you buy a technology that has a single function, consider a geothermal solution. A Green Bay 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 normally wasted heat generated by a unit's compressor and applies it to condition the water. This surplus heat is produced 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 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 need to rely more on your existing water heating method.

If you'd like to have geothermal provide 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. However, 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 today with one of our specialists to assess your needs, and decide if a WaterFurnace Green Bay geothermal solution makes sense for you.
