Geothermal Systems Provide "Free" Hot Water

What is a Desuperheater?

There are a series of new products on the market that aim to provide hot water more efficiently. New technologies such as on-demand generation, heat pump water heaters are just a few options available. For residents in Boise area, don't these options make sense?

Before investing in a technology that has a single function, consider a geothermal system. A Boise geothermal heat pump WaterFurnace solution provides heating, cooling, and free hot water - all from a single unit.

A desuperheater captures the normally wasted heat produced by a unit's compressor and applies it to modify the water. Although additional heat is produced in both heating and cooling modes, the hot water advantage is greatest while the unit is cooling. During the summer months, geothermal units run more frequently and can provide most, if not all, of your hot water. During the colder fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much excess heat - you'll have to use your existing water heating method.

Waterfurnace also offers dedicated hydronic equipment that's easily installed if you would to have geothermal provide 100% of your hot water needs. Like solar solutions, they qualify for the 30% federal tax credit. Unlike solar solutions, geothermal provides hot water 24 hours a day, rain or shine.
