What Do You Think of Indirect Water Heaters?

The guys at hvac-talk agree that I should get an indirect water heater. I've read some of the problems the burners are causing on regular gas water heaters and think they might just have something there. Any thoughts on getting an indirect water heaters with my new boiler?

RE: What Do You Think of Indirect Water Heaters?

definitely the way to go if you have a boiler. its another zone to the indirect tank. there is no burner and venting issues. its simply a storage tank. i have a 50 gallon tank and it works great and always have hot water even when running 2 showers or other multiple uses.

there is a higher cost as opposed to a traditional gas/oil water heater. i paid about $1700 as an upgrade when i built my home. however its a great payback since during the non-heating season the boiler only runs to keep the tank hot was is very rarely when no hot water is used. most tanks are very well insulated.
