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. This includes newer technologies like on-demand generation, heat pump water heaters, and solar solutions. For residents in Huntington area, don't these options make sense?

Before investing in a technology only capable of one thing, consider a geothermal system. A Huntington 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 normally wasted heat created by a unit's compressor and uses it to condition the water. This surplus heat is produced in both heating and cooling modes, but the hot water advantage 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. However, during the fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much excess heat - you'll need to use your existing water heating method.

If you'd like to have geothermal supply 100% of your hot water needs, we also offer dedicated hydronic equipment that's easily installed. Like solar solutions, the geothermal hydronic equipment qualifies for the 30% federal tax credit. Unlike solar solutions, geothermal provides hot water 24 hours a day, rain or shine.
