Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

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

Before you buy a technology that only has one function, consider a geothermal system. A Pensacola 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 wasted heat normally created by a unit's compressor and uses it to modify the water. This additional heat is generated in both heating and cooling modes, but the hot water advantage is greatest as the unit is cooling. During the summer months, geothermal units run more frequently and can provide most, if not all, of your hot water. During the fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much excess heat - you'll have to utilize your existing water heating process.

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. Unlike solar solutions, geothermal provides hot water 24 hours a day, rain or shine.

Hot water - it's one more reason to choose geothermal. Set up an appointment with one of our specialists to assess your needs, and whether or not a WaterFurnace Pensacola geothermal solution makes sense for you.
