Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

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

Before investing in a technology that's capable of one thing, consider a geothermal solution. A Meridian 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 treat the water. This excess 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 provide 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 process.

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

"Free hot water just another reason to switch to geothermal. Set up an appointment with one of our specialists to assess your needs, and whether or not a WaterFurnace Meridian geothermal solution makes sense for you.
