Ground Source Heat Pump Domestic Hot Water efficiency
I understand that a desuperheater captures the heat that is naturally lost by running the heat pump. Is it capable of supplying all the domestic hot water in a typical home? Does this mean that it is essentially using 'free' energy and the Energy Factor of this DHW system is infinity (ignoring pump consumption)?
