Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

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

Before you buy a technology that's capable of one thing, consider a geothermal solution. A Southwest Michigan geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution offers heating, cooling, and free hot water - all from a single unit.

A desuperheater is a component that captures the wasted heat normally generated by a unit's compressor and uses it to modify the water. Although additional heat is produced in both heating and cooling modes, the hot water benefit is greatest while the unit is cooling. In the summer, geothermal units run more frequently and can supply most, if not all, of your hot water. However, during the colder fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much surplus heat - you'll need to use your existing water heating system.

Waterfurnace also offers dedicated hydronic equipment that's easily installed if you would to have geothermal supply 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.
