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. This includes newer technologies like on-demand generation, heat pump water heaters, and solar solutions. For residents in New Jersey area, don't these options make sense?

Before investing in a technology that has a single function, consider a geothermal system. A New Jersey 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 normally wasted heat produced by a unit's compressor and uses it to treat the water. This surplus heat is created in both heating and cooling modes, but the hot water benefit is greatest as the unit is cooling. In the summer, geothermal units run more frequently 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 use your existing water heating method.

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.
