Perhaps even more important than a residential water heater is the commercial water heater. Where a residential heater warms a home, the commercial water heater powers restaurants, hotels, and any other businesses you can think of. Here’s what you need to know about commercial water heaters to ensure your business never gets the cold shoulder.
No matter where you’re installing a water heater the “tank or tankless” question is bound to come up. Tank systems are very easy to install and their natural gas powered frames are more cost-efficient than their electrical counterparts.
For a commercial business, a tankless heater may be the best option, especially for buildings that require large amounts of energy. A tankless system yields 22% more energy-efficient than a traditional heater. For heating more than 86 gallons of water, 8-14% of energy efficiency is possible.
Drain Valve Type
Draining your water heater regularly is a very important part of maintaining a healthy system. This prevents the build up of harmful sediment which can and will damage your water heater. Drain valves are incredibly important parts of your system and need to be replaced quickly when broken.
For commercial water heaters, you need to have a brass drain valve. Brass can handle hot temperatures and lasts the longest out of any other type of valve.
Technology is wonderful isn’t it? Digital displays are in our homes, our cars, our phones, and basically everywhere else you can think of. Even water heaters. Modern water heaters come with optional digital readouts that allow for much more accurate customization of your system’s settings and very easy-reading. Modern devices have additional options such as the vacation mode, which automates the temperature controls so that the device remains efficient and working while you are away.
