Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a lot of innovative 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. The question is, do these options make sense here in Hart ?

Before you buy a technology that has a single function, consider a geothermal heat pump add-on. A Hart 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 normally wasted heat created by a unit's compressor and applies it to modify the water. This surplus 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 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 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, they qualify for the 30% federal tax credit. But unlike solar solutions, geothermal provides hot water 24 hours a day, rain or shine.
