Thinking about an indirect water heater for your commercial business? This combination water heater can be a great option. Let’s explore a bit about what they are and why they can be good for your particular set up.
First off – the details. Indirect heaters are a combination of a boiler and and indirect (or coil) water heater tank. This is often called a combination system. Here’s how it works: the water heater tank has a coiled pipe inside, near the bottom. The boiler hooks up to this pipe and in a closed loop pumps very hot water into the coil and then back out – so hot hot water is circulating through the coil at the bottom of the tank. This heats the rest of the water in the tank and presto! Hot water for all your business needs.
Some benefits of this system can be that you might already have a boiler in place that is already running for part of the year – it’s fairly simple to install the coil water heater. The indirect water heater also tends to last longer, because their equipment goes through less wear and tear due to less contraction and expansion during the heating process. Both of these points mean savings for you! Of course, there will be costs associated with installation – like extra piping, and you will have to run that existing boiler during the warm days of summer to get hot water.
