Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a series of new products on the market that aim to supply hot water more efficiently. New technologies such as on-demand generation, heat pump water heaters are just a few options available. For residents in Lane County area, don't these options make sense?

Before investing in a technology that has a single function, consider a geothermal solution. A Lane County geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution offers heating, cooling, and free hot water - all from a single unit.

A desuperheater captures the wasted heat normally generated by a unit's compressor and applies it to condition the water. Although excess heat is produced in both heating and cooling modes, 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. However, during the colder fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much excess heat - you'll need to rely more on 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. 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 products. Set up an appointment today with one of our specialists to evaluate your needs, and whether or not a WaterFurnace Lane County geothermal solution makes sense for you.
