Choosing a Commercial Water Heater

There are many facets to running a business and selecting an appropriate commercial water heater is one that unfortunately may fall by the wayside.  But it doesn’t mean that it’s any less important.  Picking the right commercial water heater can save a business money by reducing energy consumption. So what should you look for when choosing the right type of water heater for your business?

Choosing a Commercial Water Heater

Types of Water Heaters

There are several different options of water heaters to choose from.

  • Conventional storage water heaters run on gas (propane or natural gas), fuel oil, or electricity.  Referred to as standby heat loss, the water in the storage tanks is constantly heated which is wasteful if hot water isn’t needed in the facility. Although considered less energy-efficient, they remain a popular choice.
  • Categorized as active or passive, solar water heater systems can be used in any climate.  The only fuel that solar water heater systems require is the sun, but the initial upfront cost is high. However, in winter time it is more difficult to heat the water, thus requiring conventional backup systems.
  • Tankless water heaters or demand type water heaters provide hot water as needed without the use of a storage tank. They run on gas or electricity. One major drawback is that they have a lower flow rate.
  • Heat pump water heaters run on electricity and pull heat from the air to heat up the water. They do not produce the heat directly. They do cost much more upfront, but that is typically offset by the low operational costs.
  • Tankless coil and indirect water heaters are space heating systems that provide hot water on demand without a storage tank.  They are a good choice for colder climates as they become more efficient with colder temperatures.
