A desuperheater is a component that captures the wasted heat normally generated by a unit's compressor and uses it to treat the water. Although additional heat is created in both heating and cooling modes, the hot water advantage is greatest as 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 excess heat - you'll have to utilize your existing water heating process.
