Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a variety of new products on the market that seek to deliver 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 Williamsport ?

Before buying a technology that's capable of one thing, consider a geothermal solution. A Williamsport 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 normally wasted heat generated by a unit's compressor and uses it to condition the water. This surplus heat is produced in both heating and cooling modes, but the hot water benefit 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. 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.
