Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a lot of innovative products on the market that aim to provide hot water more efficiently. This includes newer technologies like on-demand production, heat pump water heaters, and solar solutions. The question is, do these options make sense here in Beckley ?

Before you buy a technology that's capable of one thing, consider a geothermal heat pump add-on. A Beckley geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution not only provides heating and cooling from a single unit, it also gives you free hot water.

A desuperheater is a component that captures the normally wasted heat produced by a unit's compressor and uses it to modify the water. This additional heat is produced in both heating and cooling modes, but the hot water advantage is greatest as the unit is cooling. In the summer, geothermal units run more frequently and can provide most, if not all, of your hot water. However, during the fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much excess heat - you'll need to rely more on your existing water heating process.

If you'd like to have geothermal provide 100% of your hot water needs, we also offer dedicated hydronic equipment that's easily installed. 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.

"Free hot water just one more reason to switch to geothermal products. Set up an appointment with one of our specialists to assess your needs, and whether or not a WaterFurnace Beckley geothermal solution makes sense for you.
