Heater summer winter hookup

I was looking at a house but I hesitate to buy it because it didn't have a water heater. It had oil heat and something called a summer winter hookup where supposedly the oil heater heated the water for the house but I don't really understand how.

I'd hate to buy it and then have to mess with putting in a water heater when it's not even set up to have one. I don't get it. ed Nov 13, Messages 4 Reaction score 0. I would also like to know - I am moving to Pennsylvania in February. ed Sep 6, Messages 26 Reaction score 0. I think I would look into a hot water tank, should be simple to install, just a few connections to replace or install.

We do have a hot water heater but it's not hooked up to electric or gas, meaning Heater summer winter hookup just there for hot water storage, and circulates through the boiler in a loop until we need it. It does seem to use a lot of oil to heat water and keep it that way, but I think mostly the furnace could use a cleaning to run better. One thing to remember though, if you do go that route and use an "unpowered" tank is to remove the anode rod and plug the hole. You could just pull the anode, cut it off and rethread the bolt end back where it came from.

If it's not going to be used sacrificially, then it's just gonna rust and make your hot water smell pretty bad. Something called sulphur hydroxide I think they said it was. ed Mar 1, Messages 2, Reaction score 7. Hello PA: A demand water heater is the most economical because it only heats the water when its in use. It doesn't keep a tank of water hot all the time which uses a lot of energy. This would work well with the oil fired boiler in that it takes no floor space, doesn't fire up unless water is flowing and doesn't store hot water while you sleep or are off at work; and you can shower as long as you want.

Not trying to stray too far from the main topic, but here is a great link, if interested, regarding demand water heating. Operating costs, initial installation costs and return on the investment should be factored in, as well as usage needs. Just my 2 cents. ed Nov 22, Messages 1 Reaction score 0.

I sleep without the heater on. I sleep on the la z boy rocking chair that folds out into a bed. It's not the leather ones but the cloth weave--it's very warm to sleep there. I cover the rocking chair with a microfleece blanket then I cover myself with a microfleece blanket and a comforter blanket. It's extremely warm.

Just something to consider if you want to save money from bills. Mick New Member. ed Dec 12, Messages 2 Reaction score 0. So is there a way to disable the water heater part of the summer winter hookup? I'm considering a tankless water heater but don;t know what my ioptions are coming from the summer winter setup.

We got a pellet stove for heat, so we're just burning oil to heat water, and I don't want to waste the oil keeping the water warm if we're heating it with the other system Thanks for any input. Hello Mick: You could take the hot water coil out of the oil burner and put it into the pellet stove. It would just borrow a little heat from the pellet stove which will be burning anyway. Of course, that leaves you still needing a tankless water heater for summer use but you can save a ton of money in the winter months. You must log in or register to reply here.
