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 Manhattan area, don't these options make sense?

Before investing in a technology only capable of one thing, consider a geothermal heat pump add-on. A Manhattan 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 normally wasted heat produced by a unit's compressor and applies it to treat the water. This surplus heat is produced 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. 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 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 change to geothermal products. Set up an appointment today with one of our specialists to evaluate your needs, and whether or not a WaterFurnace Manhattan geothermal solution makes sense for you.
