Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

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

Before buying a technology that's capable of one thing, consider a geothermal solution. A Atlantic 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 normally wasted heat generated by a unit's compressor and applies it to treat 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. In the summer, geothermal units run more often 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 surplus heat - you'll have to use 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, they qualify for the 30% federal tax credit. But unlike solar solutions, geothermal provides hot water 24 hours a day, rain or shine.

"Free hot water just another reason to change to geothermal products. Set up an appointment with one of our specialists to assess your needs, and decide if a WaterFurnace Atlantic geothermal solution makes sense for you.
