New Steam Boiler Install - Re: Recommendations on Hot Water Setup
I'm going to be having a new megasteam boiler installed and I'm trying to decide what to do about hot water. Do i get the boiler with the coil, use a tank with it, or just have a separate water heater.
The existing system has the coil. However, i had a water heater install about 3 years ago so i could shut the boiler off completely in the summertime. Also, thinking it might take some of the load off it and maybe squeeze a couple more years out of it.
Anyway, I'm ready to do the new install and was wondering what peoples opinion was on the best setup.
One more note: When they installed the water heater, i had them install it on the other side of the house, closer to where all the plumbing is located (kitchen/bathroom) our boiler is located just about as far away as you could get it from the plumbing, but that's where the chimney is located.
Thanks in advance, Steve
