Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a variety of new products on the market that aim 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 Hattiesburg ?

Before buying a technology that has a single function, consider a geothermal heat pump add-on. A Hattiesburg geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution provides 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 generated in both heating and cooling modes, the hot water advantage is greatest as the unit is cooling. During the summer months, geothermal units run more often 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 have to use 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, they qualify 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 change to geothermal. Set up an appointment with one of our specialists to assess your needs, and decide if a WaterFurnace Hattiesburg geothermal solution makes sense for you.
