Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

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

Before investing in a technology that's capable of one thing, consider a geothermal heat pump add-on. A New Haven County 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 created 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 benefit is greatest while the unit is cooling. In the summer, geothermal units run more often and can supply most, if not all, of your hot water. During the 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 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. But unlike solar solutions, geothermal provides hot water 24 hours a day, rain or shine.
