Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a series of new products on the market that aim to provide hot water more efficiently. New technologies such as on-demand generation, heat pump water heaters are just a few options available. For residents in Atlanta area, don't these options make sense?

Before investing in a technology that has a single function, consider a geothermal heat pump add-on. A Atlanta geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution provides heating, cooling, and free hot water - all from a single unit.

A desuperheater captures the normally wasted heat created by a unit's compressor and uses it to condition the water. Although surplus heat is created 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 often and can provide 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 excess heat - you'll need to utilize your existing water heating system.

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. However, unlike solar solutions, geothermal provides hot water 24 hours a day, rain or shine.

Hot water - it's one more reason to choose geothermal products. Set up an appointment with one of our specialists to assess your needs, and whether or not a WaterFurnace Atlanta geothermal solution makes sense for you.
