Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

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

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

A desuperheater captures the wasted heat normally created by a unit's compressor and uses it to treat the water. This additional heat is produced in both heating and cooling modes, but the hot water benefit is greatest while the unit is cooling. During the summer months, geothermal units run more frequently and can supply most, if not all, of your hot water. During the fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much surplus 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. But unlike solar solutions, geothermal provides hot water 24 hours a day, rain or shine.
