About Indirect Water Heaters

If you’re considering replacing your current water heating system with a different model, you need the help of a professional plumbing company. There’s plenty to think about when looking at alternative water heaters, such as the water usage and needs of your household. Kingston Plumbing & Heating, Inc. can perform an on-site evaluation of your home or business, gauging your current water usage and your needs. Your representative will then work one on one with you to come up with an optimal heating solution.

Alternative water heaters may cost more than the conventional option, but the returns reward your initial investment. Indirect water heaters use your home’s heating system. When you integrate your space and water heating systems, maintenance is easier. Instead of having a separate water heater and boiler, you’ll only have one source of heat. There aren’t as many moving components to maintain. Many combination systems are also more efficient, saving money on your monthly utility bills.

Unlike a tankless water heater, an indirect water heater does require a storage tank. However, it relies on a heat exchanger heated by your main boiler or furnace instead of a separate form of power. Thus, it saves your home energy costs – especially during the winter when your boiler or furnace is running regularly anyway. An indirect water heater can reach 96% efficiency through your boiler. Gas water heaters are only 60–70% efficient on average. Find out about the rebates you can receive for purchasing energy-efficient products.

Benefits of Indirect Water Heaters

For people who want the most low-cost and energy-efficient water heater, indirect water heaters are what the professionals at Kingston Plumbing & Heating, Inc. recommend. Indirect water heaters offer many advantages over conventional and tankless heaters, from boosted energy efficiency to cost savings. Benefits of indirect water heaters besides energy efficiency include:

  • Reduced heat loss. Indirect water heaters are highly insulated, with little heat lost during periods of disuse. You can leave your home for an extended period of time and have hot water when you return.
  • Improved performance. If your boiler or furnace works at optimal performance, so will your indirect water heater. Depending on the size of your residential or commercial boiler, your indirect heater can produce two to three times the amount of hot water as a conventional heater.
  • Longer unit life. Many indirect water tanks are made from stainless steel and are less susceptible to leaks and corrosion. Longer product life means saving a bundle on multiple replacements over time.

An indirect water heater only fires your boiler up when you need hot water. That means your boiler doesn’t have to run permanently for your hot water heater to work. With your water heater’s storage capacity, you don’t need your boiler to stay hot at all times to have hot water on demand. This concept is similar to tankless water heaters, but with an indirect water heater, you have a storage tank to handle a high flow rate without a temperature reduction.
