Geothermal Water Heating for St Louis Properties
Geothermal Water Heating is becoming more and more popular.
Hoffmann Brothers Water Heater Contractors was one of the first to
do it in the St Louis area. Geothermal water heating is similar to
geothermal heating for a home or business. It is the most efficient
way to heat hot water. The energy from the sun is absorbed by the
This energy is extracted from the ground and put into the hot
water. This heat is free, renewable, does not pollute, and there is
plenty to go around. In a geothermal water heating system you have
a compressor, ground loop, heat exchanger and a pump. If you put
one unit of energy into a compressor it will grab 3 free units of
energy from the ground then deliver 4 units of energy to the hot
water. This is 400% efficient. An electric water heater is 100%, a
gas water heater is 70% to 95% efficient. You can’t beat 400%
Facts About Geothermal Hot Water Heating Systems
- The geothermal heat pump still does its traditional job.
Supplemented by electricity, the pump removes heat from inside your
St Louis area home. The system accepts hot return air and
distributes cold supply air to the ductwork. Instead of simply
transferring heat to the earth through the closed underground water
solution loop, some of the waste heat moves to your hot water
- Like the earth in the traditional geothermal model, your hot water
heater becomes a new heat sink. When no additional energy is needed
to heat up the contents of your storage tank, your hot water is
supplied free of charge. During the summer, this harmonious system
can supply 60-80% of your hot water for free.
- If you already have a geothermal heat pump and a storage hot water
heater, you’re more than halfway there. A desuperheater needs to be
added to some retrofits. In many new installations, the
desuperheater is provided as a standard component.
- The desuperheater is a secondary heat exchanger with a small pump.
Water from your hot water storage tank is pumped through the
auxiliary heat exchanger, preheated with heat pump waste heat, and
output from the heat pump back to the tank. Less gas or electric
energy is consumed to heat the water in the tank, since the water
starts at a higher temperature.
- Your temperature settings take priority. Your g
