Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a series of innovative products on the market that look to deliver hot water more efficiently. This includes newer technologies like on-demand production, heat pump water heaters, and solar solutions. For residents in Des Moines area, don't these options make sense?

Before investing in a technology only capable of one thing, consider a geothermal system. A Des Moines 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 applies it to modify the water. This surplus heat is generated in both heating and cooling modes, but the hot water benefit 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 fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much excess heat - you'll need to utilize your existing water heating method.

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 today with one of our specialists to assess your needs, and whether or not a WaterFurnace Des Moines geothermal solution makes sense for you.
