Oil-fired water heaters can give you low-cost access to virtually unlimited amounts of hot water.
Homeowners with oil-fired water heaters have discovered they have low-cost access to virtually unlimited amounts of hot water. Oilheat’s ability to produce a reliable, inexpensive supply of domestic hot water is one of its strongest features. Although an oil-fired water heater may cost a little more to install up front, its efficiency in heating water means extremely low operating costs over the life of the unit.
Oil-fired water heaters have high recovery rates, which means they can heat large amounts of water quickly. A water heater’s recovery rate is the amount of water whose temperature the unit can raise by 100° in one hour. For example, if it can increase the temperature of 40 gallons of water by 100° in an hour, the unit has a 40-gallon recovery rate. Oil-fired water heaters have recovery rates as high as 120 gallons per hour.
Please contact us to find out which water heating option is best for your home and family. The Water Heater Geeks can work with you to make sure the water heater you choose has a sufficient recovery rate for your needs. Two adults, for instance, may never need more than 30 gallons of hot water an hour, but a family of six may need 70 gallons. An oil dealer can help you with another choice too, because oil-fired water heating systems come in two categories: direct and indirect.
