What Is an Indirect-Fired Water Heater?

An indirect-fired water heater could be a smart way to heat the water in your Connecticut or northern Westchester County home – but most people don’t know a whole lot about this energy-efficient option.

Here’s how an indirect-fired water heater works: Rather than use a separate fuel burner to heat water (as a conventional water heater would), an indirect water heater uses heat transferred via coils from your boiler to generate the hot water used in your faucets and appliances.

By operating this way, you essentially get free hot water whenever your boiler is running – a good deal, considering that about 20 percent of the energy you use during the fall and winter is spent heating water.
