Every home is different. And so is every homeowner. One customer may want the latest cutting-edge water heating solution, while another might prefer a more conventional system. Scott Williams offers you options—but, no matter which type of water heater you choose, you can trust us to install it properly.
Q: What is an indirect-fired water heater?
A: In an indirect-fired water heating system, the water is heated by hot water from the boiler. A typical design is a water tank with coiled pipes inside. These coiled pipes connect to your boiler. Hot water from the boiler passes through the coil, which heats up the water surrounding it.
Q: Why do oil-fired water heaters save money and prevent running out of hot water?
A: Heating oil produces the hottest flame of any home heating fuel. This means that a water heater fueled by home heating oil heats water fast. On average, oil-fired units heat water three times faster than gas heaters and five times faster than electric units.
Q: What can I do to maintain my water heater?
A: Every year, have your water heater inspected by a service technician to keep it in peak operating condition.
Q: How do I know if my water heater is wearing out?
A: Some telltale signs include higher water heating bills, rusty water, water stains and unusual noises. You should also consider the age of the unit. The life expectancy of an average tank water heater ranges from 7 to 13 years. If your water heater is 10 years old or older, don’t wait until it breaks.
