Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a lot of new products on the market that look to deliver 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 Annapolis ?

Before you buy a technology that has a single function, consider a geothermal system. A Annapolis geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution not only offers heating and cooling from a single unit, it also gives you free hot water.

A desuperheater captures the wasted heat normally generated by a unit's compressor and uses it to modify the water. This surplus heat is created 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 supply most, if not all, of your hot water. However, during the fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much excess heat - you'll need to use 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, 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 choose geothermal products. Set up an appointment today with one of our specialists to assess your needs, and decide if a WaterFurnace Annapolis geothermal solution makes sense for you.
