Q: What is an indirect-fired water heater?

A: In an indirect-fired water heating system, the domestic 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 domestic 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 a water heater fueled by home heating oil heats water fast. How 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: You'll get longer life from your water heater and prevent breakdowns if you follow these simple guidelines:

  • Every three months, drain a gallon of water from the tank. Do it every month if you have hard water. This reduces the amount of sediment collecting in the bottom of the tank, which can make the burner or heating coils work harder.
  • Every year have your water heater inspected by a service technician to keep it in peak operating condition.
