: : i guess when installing an indirect water heater with a coil, the old coil is removed? so i won't need it anymore.
: +++ No. Leave it in there. Trying to take the old coil out can sometimes mean a new boiler is required as the bolts fail.
: : should a new tank be wrapped in insulation to prevent losses?
i'm a litle confused. wouldn't you need to remove the coil if you were going to clean it? it seems i would risk having to get a new boiler even if i tried to clean it. is this right?
on another note...
Would you recommend adding a mixing valve and running the temp higher or is the 80 gal enough usable hot water. i'm not sure about the cost difference as to whether it is cheaper to buy extra tank capacity or add a valve to a lower capacity tank.
Since there are so many different types and brands, would you be able to recommend a brand which say uses a smooth coil inside? roughly what kind of cost should i expect?
