Indirect Water Heater Question

Am wondering why indirect water heaters cost 2 to 3 times as much as an equivalent standalone gas fired water heater?

Because they AREN'T "equivalent".

Better materials, last a L O N G time!

Gentlemen, thanks for answering. It just seems like a lot of money for a tank, a coil and thermostat

Yeah, it does, but when you figure that it will easily outlast 3, maybe 4, regular water heaters it starts to make sense.
