Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a series of innovative products on the market that seek to provide hot water more efficiently. This includes newer technologies like on-demand production, heat pump water heaters, and solar solutions. For residents in Fort Wayne area, don't these options make sense?

Before investing in a technology only capable of one thing, consider a geothermal system. A Fort Wayne geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution not only offers heating and cooling from a single unit, it also gives you free hot water.

A desuperheater captures the wasted heat normally produced by a unit's compressor and uses it to modify the water. This surplus heat is created in both heating and cooling modes, but the hot water benefit is greatest while 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 colder fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much surplus heat - you'll need to utilize your existing water heating method.
