Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a series of new products on the market that aim to deliver hot water more efficiently. This includes newer technologies like on-demand production, heat pump water heaters, and solar solutions. For residents in Lime Springs area, don't these options make sense?

Before investing in a technology that only has one function, consider a geothermal system. A Lime Springs 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 condition 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 supply 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 rely more on your existing water heating system.
