Indirect Water Heaters & Energy Efficiency
Modern boilers with low thermal mass and good insulation can actually make very efficient water heaters, because they don't both heat and store water at the same time. When installing a replacement boiler, consider replacing your existing storage water heater with a well insulated indirect tank that connects to the boiler with an external loop. Even in the summer you are likely to save energy because heat losses through the water heater flue will be eliminated. (ACEEE)
Consider HTP's latest indirect water heater: the highly efficiency SuperStor Pro. The SuperStor Pro is a culmination of over 25 years of indirect system manufacturing experience. Built using high quality 316L stainless steel materials, the tank and heat exchanger eliminate the need for anode rods, resist corrosion, and allow for the system to be virtually maintenance free. The corrugated heat exchanger draws energy from a boiler to heat the domestic hot water with an extremely low pressure drop. The built in auxiliary port for recirculation increases overall efficiency by eliminating short cycling of the connected boiler. The SuperStor Pro indirect water heater generates over 50% more hot water than many water heaters of similar size and offers extreme savings. Download the brochure to learn more!
