What is a Desuperheater?

There are a series of new products on the market that aim to provide hot water more efficiently. New technologies such as on-demand generation, heat pump water heaters are just a few options available. For residents in Mobile area, don't these options make sense?

Before investing in a technology that has a single function, consider a geothermal heat pump add-on. A Mobile geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution offers heating, cooling, and free hot water - all from a single unit.

A desuperheater is a component that captures the normally wasted heat generated by a unit's compressor and applies it to treat the water. Although surplus heat is created in both heating and cooling modes, the hot water benefit is greatest while the unit is cooling. In the summer, geothermal units run more often and can supply most, if not all, of your hot water. During the colder fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much surplus heat - you'll need to use your existing water heating process.

Waterfurnace also offers dedicated hydronic equipment that's easily installed if you would to have geothermal supply 100% of your hot water needs. 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.
