Indirect Fired Water Heater Services in Westchester County, NY
Water heaters come in all shapes and sizes and in an area with as many diverse homes as Westchester County, what works for one may not be appropriate for another. You may be accustomed to the traditional tank type water heater, but depending on the kind of home you have, an alternate system may work much better. Consider an indirect fired water heater, for example, which works in conjunction with the boiler in your home to produce hot water. Obviously, it won’t work for homes that don’t use boilers for heat, but for those that do, it can have a huge benefit.
The experts at Yost & Campbell Heating, Cooling & Generators have experience with indirect fired water heaters, and have installed and repaired numerous models in the Westchester County area. We understand how this technology works in conjunction with your boiler and the way that both systems play off of each other. If this sounds like an option you’d like to consider for your home, then contact us today to get the process started!
Using the Same Heat Source
The clever aspect of an indirect fired water heater is the way it makes the most of your energy costs. An indirect fired water heater stores water just like a standard tank type, but instead of a burner and flue, it has a coil at the bottom. When the need arises for hot water, the boiler circulates water in the coil, heating the water in the tank.
This has several benefits: your high efficient boiler is producing hot water giving you a significant increase in available hot water; there is no flue in the tank allowing for cold air to pass through; where a traditional water heater fires once an hour to maintain temperature, an indirect heater only fires once a day to maintain temperature.
This helps you control your energy costs that burden Westchester County homeowners every winter. Call us today to see if this is an option for your home.
