Indirect Water Heater or Not
I am considering either a standard efficiency or high-efficiency Weil McLain boiler install. I want to replace my current gas water heater at the same time with an indirect water heater.
I've scoured the net for advice; however, I find the insights from some incredibly savvy individuals tantamount to much of the other stuff I read.
1. Am I making the right choice to pursue indirect?
2. Is it equally an ok decision whether I go with a high-efficiency gas boiler or a standard cast iron?
3. What type of servicing is required on an indirect? Ie. What yearly maintenance is required?
4. What tank size would be sufficient for a long shower or two long showers simultaneously?
Lastly, and perhaps the most ignorant question, what mechanism allows for just the indirect tank to be heated versus the rest of my house in July.
Any advice on switching to indirect when installing a new boiler is appreciated!
Many, many thanks
