Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a lot of innovative products on the market that look to supply hot water more efficiently. New technologies such as on-demand generation, heat pump water heaters are just a few options available. The question is, do these options make sense here in Charleston ?

Before you buy a technology only capable of one thing, consider a geothermal solution. A Charleston geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution provides 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. During the summer months, geothermal units run more frequently and can supply 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 need to utilize 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 assess your needs, and whether or not a WaterFurnace Charleston geothermal solution makes sense for you.
