Anyone try this?

I'm currently on a direct coil. Looking at an indirect coil.
In any case does anyone know of an indirect tank that has a heatpump? (basic idea is to use the oil for when there is a large draw/heat loss in the tank. and the heat pump when there's not much of a loss? )

Second q, has anyone heard/seen something where the indirect tank has multiple coils in it. ie (one for the boiler, and then one or two other coils, )

The other coils would be so when there was a call for hot water for the HVAC system it would pull from the boiler, go through the extra coil in the indirect tank, then up to the HVAC, and then back to the boiler?
This could also be done for the baseboard heater, and I'm not an heating guy. Granted this would make things a little more complex. Anyone thing this would make it more efficient?
