Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a variety 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. Do these options make sense for residents in Maryville ?

Before buying a technology only capable of one thing, consider a geothermal heat pump add-on. A Maryville 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 normally wasted heat created by a unit's compressor and applies it to treat the water. This excess heat is generated in both heating and cooling modes, but the hot water advantage is greatest as the unit is cooling. In the summer, geothermal units run more often 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 surplus heat - you'll have to use your existing water heating method.
