Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a variety 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. Do these options make sense for residents in West Chester ?

Before buying a technology that has a single function, consider a geothermal heat pump add-on. A West Chester geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution offers heating, cooling, and free hot water - all from a single unit.

A desuperheater captures the normally wasted heat produced by a unit's compressor and uses it to modify the water. Although additional heat is generated in both heating and cooling modes, the hot water benefit 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 colder fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much surplus heat - you'll have to rely more on 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. But unlike solar solutions, geothermal provides hot water 24 hours a day, rain or shine.

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