Can I Attach a Water Tank to a Geothermal System? - Ask the Expert Episode 130

Geothermal heat pumps are a great way to heat and cool your home, but they can also be used as a source of hot water for your house. People are always looking for ways to make their heating and cooling more efficient; a geothermal system is a great option.

Video Script:

Today we have a good question. "Hey Dan, we're going to build a new home and we would like a geothermal system. Is there an attachment water tank so we don't have to get propane for hot water?

Yes! What you will want to get is the Desuperheater for your geothermal heat pump. It's going to store excess heat and water so you can have hot water for showers and dishes and laundry and stuff. In the winter, however, if it's super cold and the unit is working hard, the system won't put heat into the Desuperheater it will put that into your home. So, you might need some propane in the winter, but it just depends on your unit and the situation you're in.
