I have some questions about water heating solutions. Currently I have an indirect hot water heater that is coupled with an oil burner. The setup isn't that old and works well. The problem I have is burning oil in the summer time, just for the hot water. So what can I do to keep the efficiency of the indirect setup in the winter when the oil burner is in use to heat the house but not burn oil in the summer?
I was thinking of buying the new GE Hybrid water heater and putting it right next to the indirect water heater. In the summer I could run the electric water heater and then in the winter I could run the indirect. I'll just need to do some fancy pluming. Or should I just remove the indirect water heater and use the GE Hybrid 100% of the time? Or do nothing and just burn oil in the summer?
