Oil Water Heater and Propane Water Heater

Save Big with a New Water Heater

Water heating accounts for about 15% of a typical home's energy use, so you can take a big bite out of your energy budget by upgrading to a more efficient system. If you are running out of hot water too quickly or your water heater is more than 7 years old, give ckSmithSuperior a call and we'll evaluate your current system and explain your options.

If you heat your home by boiler, you have a choice in your replacement water heater: a direct, oil-fired heater with a storage tank or an indirect water heater that utilizes the boiler for water heating and stores heated water in a tank. The American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy recommends an indirect system or a combined heat/hot water system as the most efficient choice.

Homes that heat by furnace generally do not have the option of indirect water heating or a combined system and instead use a standalone, oil-fired appliance.

We offer high-efficiency water heaters fueled by your choice of oil or propane. Our propane tankless water heaters reduce energy use because they have no tank to heat.

high efficiency indirect fired water heaters


Reliable hot water can be supplied from the boiler all year round with a Weil-McLain® indirect fired water heater or a tankless heater. Indirect water heaters do not have a separate fuel supply, such as a gas pilot light, but rather use the hot water generated by a boiler to heat domestic water. Weil-McLain® uses a tank-within-a-tank design that allows hot water produced by the boiler to circulate in a steel outer tank which wraps around an inner stainless steel tank, radiating heat through the walls of the inner tank, keeping a steady supply of hot water on hand.

On-demand water heater


If you're looking to save money on hot water heating, consider a propane tankless water heater from Rinnai. These ultra-efficient systems can cut your water heating costs by 40% by eliminating standby losses that occur with a hot water storage tank. A Rinnai tankless model produces hot water only as you need it, making it a perfect solution for locations that use hot water on only a limited or occasional basis. Each Rinnai is built with a copper heat exchanger that is covered by a 12-year limited warranty. The Rinnai models are compact and generally are mounted on a wall. Some units qualify for a federal tax credit.

If there are space constraints, a tankless heater, which is simply a coil through which tap water is circulated, can be installed in your boiler. In both cases, during the summer months when the heat in your home is shut off, the boiler operates at a low fuel level, about the same as an ordinary hot water heater. A limited lifetime or 5-year warranty is available.
