A desuperheater captures the normally wasted heat created by a unit's compressor and applies 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 provide most, if not all, of your hot water. However, during the colder fall, winter, and spring months - when the desuperheater isn't capturing as much surplus heat - you'll have to use your existing water heating system.
