Dickinson Lofoten hot water connections

Hello,

Anyone use the 2 loop for the hot water heater?

If so, is it capable of heating and keeping the water in the hot water heater hot without using electricity?

If so, what is the distance from the heater to your hot water heater?

Thank you!

Drew

We have an Antarctic heater, with 2-loop coil. We have a custom hot water tank (in that it has inlet for heat exchanger for heating up by engine/hydronic heater AND separate inlet for Dickinson fresh water AND electric 110V heat element) which is about 1.5m in pipelength from Dickinson heater.

Absolutely YES, Dickinson heats up the water fast and very hot.
