Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a lot of innovative products on the market that look to deliver hot water more efficiently. This includes newer technologies like on-demand production, heat pump water heaters, and solar solutions. The question is, do these options make sense here in Topeka ?

Before you buy a technology that has a single function, consider a geothermal solution. A Topeka geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution not only offers 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 generated by a unit's compressor and applies it to treat the water. This surplus heat is produced in both heating and cooling modes, but the hot water advantage is greatest while the unit is cooling. In the summer, geothermal units run more frequently and can provide most, if not all, of your hot water. During the fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much excess heat - you'll have to rely more on your existing water heating process.

If you'd like to have geothermal provide 100% of your hot water needs, we also offer dedicated hydronic equipment that's easily installed.
