Different Types of Commercial Water Heaters

JA_6646If you value hot water, then having quality commercial water heaters in your building is important. There are several different types of water heaters to choose from. If you’re having difficulty deciding which one is right for you, Environment Masters can help you weigh the pros and cons of each type.

Point of Use

A point of use water heater is placed nearby where it will be used. For example, a point of use water heater for the bathroom will be placed very close to the bathroom pipes. This means the water has less distance to travel, saving on heating cost. It also means you don’t have to wait as long for the hot water to come out of the faucet.

Whole Building

In most cases, there are several commercial water heaters that serve a single commercial building. Whole building heaters will heat up the water wherever it is going. It can be efficient, but it also means the water may take longer to get hot for areas that are farther away from the heater.

Tanks vs. Tankless

There are both water heaters with tanks and a tankless variety. Tanks house water and help to keep it warm with the idea that less energy is spent on heating up water whenever a faucet is turned on. On the other hand, tankless heaters never run out of hot water and tend to be more energy efficient overall.

Gas vs. Electric

You will also want to consider how your water is heated. Some heaters are electric while others use gas. The type you choose to get will affect either your electric or gas bill in some way.
