A desuperheater captures the normally wasted heat generated by a unit's compressor and applies it to treat the water. Although excess heat is produced in both heating and cooling modes, the hot water benefit is greatest as the unit is cooling. During the summer months, geothermal units run more often and can supply 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 utilize your existing water heating system.
