Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a variety of innovative products on the market that aim to supply hot water more efficiently. This includes newer technologies like on-demand production, heat pump water heaters, and solar solutions. Do these options make sense for residents in Port Washington ?

Before buying a technology that has a single function, consider a geothermal system. A Port Washington geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution not only offers 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 applies it to modify the water. This additional heat is produced in both heating and cooling modes, but the hot water benefit is greatest as the unit is cooling. In the summer, geothermal units run more frequently 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 process.

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. But unlike solar solutions, geothermal provides hot water 24 hours a day, rain or shine.

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