Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

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

Before investing in a technology only capable of one thing, consider a geothermal system. A Lexington geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution offers 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 applies it to treat the water. Although excess 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 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 have to rely more on 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. 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 products. Set up an appointment today with one of our specialists to assess your needs, and whether or not a WaterFurnace Lexington geothermal solution makes sense for you.
