What is a Desuperheater?

A desuperheater is a component that captures the normally wasted heat created by a unit's compressor and applies it to modify the water. Although additional heat is generated 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 often 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.
