Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

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

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

A desuperheater is a component that captures the wasted heat normally generated by a unit's compressor and applies it to modify the water. This additional heat is created in both heating and cooling modes, but the hot water advantage 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 fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much surplus heat - you'll have to use 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, they qualify 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 with one of our specialists to assess your needs, and whether or not a WaterFurnace Burlington geothermal solution makes sense for you.
