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. New technologies such as on-demand generation, heat pump water heaters are just a few options available. For residents in Green Bay area, don't these options make sense?

Before investing in a technology only capable of one thing, consider a geothermal heat pump add-on. A Green Bay geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution offers heating, cooling, and free hot water - all from a single unit.

A desuperheater captures the normally wasted heat created by a unit's compressor and applies it to modify the water. Although additional heat is created in both heating and cooling modes, the hot water advantage is greatest as the unit is cooling. In the summer, geothermal units run more often and can supply most, if not all, of your hot water. However, during the colder fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much surplus heat - you'll have to use your existing water heating process.

Waterfurnace also offers dedicated hydronic equipment that's easily installed if you would to have geothermal provide 100% of your hot water needs. Like solar solutions, the geothermal hydronic equipment qualifies for the 30% federal tax credit. Unlike solar solutions, geothermal provides hot water 24 hours a day, rain or shine.

Hot water - it's another reason to change to geothermal products. Set up an appointment with one of our specialists to evaluate your needs, and whether or not a WaterFurnace Green Bay geothermal solution makes sense for you.
