Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a lot of innovative products on the market that seek to provide 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 Danville ?

Before you buy a technology that has a single function, consider a geothermal solution. A Danville geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution not only provides 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 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. During the fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much excess heat - you'll have to rely more on your existing water heating process.
