GE Geospring with an indirect
Hello, everyone. New to the forum and have done some reading. Hopefully I have come to the right place!
I just purchased a GE GeoSpring HPWH and want to connect it inline with my existing system. I currently have an indirect system using a 41-gallon Amtrol Boilermate. Based on my estimated hot water usage and the timing of the usage, I think the 50-Gallon GE will not keep up without bumping up the mode (less efficient).
I am wondering if there is a preferred arrangement to place the GE and use my existing Boilermate as a storage tank? I would like to shut my boiler off for the summer months if possible. I have considered simply putting the GE in line prior to the Boilermate with the hot supply from the GE going to the cold inlet of the Boilermate. This would appear to work as long as we are using hot water on a fairly frequent basis.
Is there a better option? I'm wondering about using the thermostat on the Amtrol to control a circ pump to mix the Geospring water into the Amtrol when the temperature in the Amtrol drops. I'm not sure if it will work or exactly the pump and equipment I should use. Any help, descriptions, or experiences are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
