  • Indirect vs tank

    Asking the pros, Any opinions on indirect hot water heater versus dedicated tank?

    My brother has a large home, needs lots of hot water, and currently uses his main furnace for heating water (indirectly) even in summer. He has a hot water circ pump and this furnace runs on oil. Complains it costs $11/day in oil for his hot water in summer. He is switching from oil to nat gas in whole house, now would be a good time to replace the indirect system in favor of a gas-operated stand-alone tank if opinion is in favor. Would be replacing furnace with gas burners too, but remove the indirect system.
