Water heater technology has continued to evolve over the years, moving away from the traditional storage tank models to newer innovations such as the tankless water heater, which delivers hot water on demand and will never run out of its supply. There are also options for high-efficiency condensing water heaters.
One excellent choice that we offer at Basnett Plumbing & Heating is the indirect fired water heater, which has superior energy efficiency compared to storage tank water heaters. To find out more about indirect fired water heaters in Boston, MA, call up our water heater specialists on staff and they will be happy to share with you what one of these home appliances can do for you.
How does an indirect fired water heater work?
What makes an indirect fired water heater stand out as a water heating option is that it is integrated into an already existing heating system instead of standing on its own. An indirect fired water heater is connected to the boiler that provides heat for a home. The water heater does not have its own energy supply; instead, it uses the heat supply from the boiler and applies it to the water that goes to your taps. Because this type of water heater consumes far less energy—you only use a single energy source where normally you would use two—it costs far less to run.
An indirect fired water heater is also more durable than a storage water heater and you can anticipate it to last as long as the boiler (and boilers are the most long-lived of all standard heating systems). You can expect excellent performance from the system for many years without it requiring major repairs.
You can choose to have an indirect fired water heater installed as either tank model, which applies the energy from the boiler directly to a tank of water, or as tankless model that heats the water you want as you want it. When you call for installation of a water heater, ask your technician about the options so you can find the unit that will provide you with the best combination of efficiency and effectiveness.
