Nothing beats hot water in storage. It guarantees hot water to be there when needed and, if installed properly, should always provide sufficient volume throughout your home or building. T-Flow Inc. feels that the best system today, provided you have a hot water boiler, is an indirect hot water system. Water is heated indirectly through a coil which sits inside a tank that holds a mass of water. These tanks come in 20 to 125 gallon capacities. Basically the coil inside the tank is heated like a zone of heat only you aren’t heating space with radiation but are heating water through a coil. Tanks that we would recommend are very efficient and come with a lifetime warranty. They are constructed of stainless steel and copper and only give up 1 degree of water per hour in standby thanks to the foam insulation that surrounds the tank. They also recover 75% faster than a standard hot water heater.
If your hot water tank is gone, you are upgrading or building new you may want to consider an indirect system. Feel free to call us with any questions or to have one of our people to come out and take a look. (617) 818-1229
