Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19842613C1] A multi purpose gas fired water heater has a cold water inlet (2) and a hot water outlet (3) for drinking water, and a circuit (4,5) for a heating system. The heater is divided into two sections and has the drinking water heated mostly in the larger section (1). The heating and drinking flow are in opposite directions through the small section heater (1') and in parallel flows through the larger section (1). This provides an optimum heating mode with no sudden changes in the temperature of the drinking water output.
