An indirect-fired water heater is one of the smartest ways to heat the water in your Hudson Valley home – but most people don’t know a whole lot about this energy efficient option.

By operating this way, you essentially get free hot water whenever your heating equipment is running – which is a pretty good deal, considering that about 20 percent of the energy you use during the fall and winter is spent heating water.
