Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

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

Before investing in a technology that only has one function, consider a geothermal solution. A Panama City geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution not only offers heating and cooling from a single unit, it also gives you free hot water.

A desuperheater captures the wasted heat normally created by a unit's compressor and applies it to modify the water. This surplus heat is created in both heating and cooling modes, but the hot water advantage is greatest as the unit is cooling. During the summer months, 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 use your existing water heating method.

If you'd like to have geothermal provide 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. But unlike solar solutions, geothermal provides hot water 24 hours a day, rain or shine.

"Free hot water just another reason to switch to geothermal. Set up an appointment today with one of our specialists to assess your needs, and whether or not a WaterFurnace Panama City geothermal solution makes sense for you.
