FAQ: Indirect Water Heaters for Your Long Island Home

Indirect Water Heaters Save Energy and Reduce Costs

Indirect water heaters have a reputation for being most efficient during the colder winter months. This is the time of year when we receive a lot of questions surrounding the benefits of indirect water heaters, how they work, costs associated therein, and more.

We thought it would be useful to help our new and returning customers with this simplified indirect water heater question and answer piece.

Q: What are indirect water heaters?

A: Indirect water heaters, along with tankless coils, function to heat water. They do this through your existing home heating system.

Q: How do indirect water heaters work?

A: Indirect water heaters heat water on demand. At the turn of a faucet, water travels through the heating coil where it is warmed on its way. Indirect water heaters do require storage tanks, but these tanks can store cold, rather than hot water, due to the on-demand tankless coil that heats water on its way to the desired faucet.

Q: What are the benefits of installing an indirect water heater?

A: Top benefits of installing an indirect water heater include:

  1. Hot water on demand; no waiting
  2. Saves energy
  3. Reduces costs
  4. Can be least expensive hot water option if paired with high-efficiency boiler and well-insulated tank
