A desuperheater is a component that captures the wasted heat normally 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. In the summer, geothermal units run more frequently and can supply most, if not all, of your hot water. During the colder 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 method.

Waterfurnace also offers dedicated hydronic equipment that's easily installed if you would to have geothermal supply 100% of your hot water needs.
