Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a variety of new products on the market that seek 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 Omaha ?

Before buying a technology that only has one function, consider a geothermal solution. A Omaha geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution not only provides heating and cooling from a single unit, it also gives you free hot water.

A desuperheater captures the wasted heat normally generated by a unit's compressor and uses it to modify the water. This excess heat is generated in both heating and cooling modes, but the hot water benefit is greatest while the unit is cooling. During the summer months, geothermal units run more frequently 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 need to rely more on your existing water heating system.
