Five Tips For Choosing The Right Commercial Water Heater

Depending on your industry, your water heater can make or break you. For example, businesses such as restaurants need the proper water heater because it’s such a critical part of their businesses. For these reasons, a business owner needs to know the unit size, heating fuel, storage options, and capacity of the water heater you need. Here are some essential tips for choosing the right unit.

Tips for choosing a commercial water heater.

The Type of Commercial Water Heater

There are many kinds on the market, such as: 

  • Gas: Heaters fueled by natural gas or propane, which in turn heats the water
  • Electric: Heats water and maintains it at a pre-set temperature
  • Oil-fired: Best suited for mid-size commercial use with their storage capacity being 32-271 gallons. 

Storage Options

Storage tanks hold up to 30-50 gallons of water heated to a previously set temperature and then stored until it needs usage. Water in the tank heats up using gas or electricity. On the other hand, tankless water heaters heat water on demand, and there isn’t a need to stow hot water in a large tank. 

Your Company’s Hot Water Needs

Considering how much hot water your commercial water heater needs is crucial based on your industry and daily work tasks. A miscalculation could cost you money and even customers. 

The Size Of The Water Heater

The unit size of your water heater depends on your heating needs and your building’s size. If you have a large business that requires a lot of hot water, you’ll need a larger capacity and a more robust heater. 

Energy Efficiency

It’s best practice to keep your eye on the bottom line as a business owner. Any expenditure you put into your company will add value and money to your business or the opposite. Ensure that you inquire about how energy efficient your’s will be.
