Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a variety of innovative products on the market that seek to provide hot water more efficiently. New technologies such as on-demand production, heat pump water heaters are just a few options available. Do these options make sense for residents in Medina ?

Before buying a technology that's capable of one thing, consider a geothermal system. A Medina 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 normally wasted heat created by a unit's compressor and applies it to modify the water. Although surplus heat is generated in both heating and cooling modes, the hot water advantage is greatest as the unit is cooling. In the summer, 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 excess heat - you'll need to utilize your existing water heating method.

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.

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