It’s a common question for those considering geothermal heating: can I use a waste heat hot water system with a geothermal heating system? The answer is yes, you can. But before we get into the details of how it works, it’s helpful to understand why you might want to consider waste heat hot water systems in the first place.

The primary benefit of using waste heat hot water systems with a geothermal heating system is that they can reduce your energy bills significantly. By capturing the wasted heat generated by your geothermal system and using it to preheat your hot water, you’re effectively turning wasted energy into usable energy – and that means big savings on your electricity bill.

Let’s look at an example. Suppose you have a 2-ton geothermal system that runs at an efficiency of 3.5 COP (Coefficient of Performance). That means for every kW of electrical power input, you get 3.5 kW of thermal output – or in other words, you get 3.5 kW of usable heat for every 1 kW of electricity consumed. Now, if you were to install a waste heat hot water system, what would happen is that some of the 3.5 kW would be diverted away from the space heating and used to preheat your hot water instead – meaning less electricity would be needed for heating water, resulting in even more savings on your electricity bill!

Waste heat hot water systems are not only great for saving money – they can also help reduce carbon emissions by reducing electricity consumption and making better use of renewable sources like geothermal energy instead. Plus, they are relatively straightforward to install and maintain compared to some other systems – so it’s definitely worth considering if you’re looking for ways to reduce your environmental footprint as well as your energy bills.
