Description for Lochinvar SIT050

**NOTE: Compatible Honeywell L4006A1967 Aquastat Controller available

The Squire uses the power and efficiency of the boiler that heats the home to generate domestic hot water for showers, dish washing, clothes washing - any hot water demand required. The efficiency of the boiler used to heat the home can be as much as 20% higher than a direct-fired tank-type water heater. So why not use that efficiency to "indirectly" provide hot water for all domestic applications?

The Squire passes the boiler water used to heat the home through a uniquely designed internal helical coil that is immersed in the water heater tank. The super heated coil then passes its energy directly to the potable water. The end result is hot water for domestic use from boiler water already being used to heat the home. By using the Squire, to indirectly heat the domestic water, you eliminate the additional gas line, electrical connections and vent ducts needed with direct-fired tank-type water heaters.

  • Fully Welded Construction
  • 100% Stainless Steel Construction

    Q:

    I plan on using this system with a Burnham 105K direct vent boiler.
    Will this raise the efficiency of the boiler to 90%+?
    What happens in the summer? How much higher would my costs be for hot water needs?

      A:

      I do not know about the efficiency of your boiler but I can tell you that I have this product and am VERY satisfied.
      Your burner efficiency will increase as it does not come on as often to produce domestic hot water. The indirect water heater keeps the water in it very hot for over 24 hours and is absolutely worth the money! The initial cost is more than a regular water heater but it costs no where near as much to use on a monthly basis.
      I have oil heat .........you need your boiler to be on in the summer to heat the hot water in the indirect tank, but it comes on MUCH less frequently than it would using the burner's coil to produce the hot water directly. We went through very little oil in the summer heating water - dishwasher, washer, shower ...baths ...you name it. We always have red hot water and 2 people can take showers at once in the house while the wash or dishwasher is going - we could never do that before.
      Hope this helps

      A:

      We put in a lochinvar boiler with an 80 gallon side kick water heater. We added 800 sq feet to house at same time and dropped our heating bill including water heater by 25%.
      I can't speak to your boiler but we can't complain.
      In the summer it is controlled by its own separate zone just like any zone and when the water needs to be heated it calls for heat and your boiler turns on.
      We bought a stainless steel tank so hopefully this is the last water heater we will buy.
      We have a 14 year old son in sports who takes endless showers. Never runs out.
      I hope this helps

    Q:

    Can I use this product for potable water with a glycol system boiler? Are the coils inside the tank or where they do not come in contact with the potable water?
