Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a series 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. For residents in Oswego area, don't these options make sense?

Before investing in a technology that only has one function, consider a geothermal heat pump add-on. A Oswego 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 normally wasted heat generated by a unit's compressor and applies it to modify the water. This additional heat is created in both heating and cooling modes, but the hot water advantage is greatest while the unit is cooling. In the summer, geothermal units run more often 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 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. Unlike solar solutions, geothermal provides hot water 24 hours a day, rain or shine.

Hot water - it's one more reason to switch to geothermal. Set up an appointment with one of our specialists to evaluate your needs, and decide if a WaterFurnace Oswego geothermal solution makes sense for you.
