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. New technologies such as on-demand production, heat pump water heaters are just a few options available. 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 offers heating, cooling, and free hot water - all from a single unit.

A desuperheater captures the wasted heat normally created by a unit's compressor and uses it to modify the water. Although surplus heat is created in both heating and cooling modes, the hot water benefit 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 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 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 switch to geothermal. Set up an appointment with one of our specialists to evaluate your needs, and decide if a WaterFurnace Fort Wayne geothermal solution makes sense for you.
