Why You Should Hire Professional Water Heater Services

How To Choose The Right Commercial Water Heater

When it comes time to replace your old or damaged commercial water heater, you will want to check the specifications label. The water heater you are replacing it with must have a matching or compatible capacity and dimensions. We at 1-800-Plumber +Air can help. Our licensed and insured technicians can answer all of your questions and make sure you are getting the correct commercial hot water heater. All commercial water heaters will clearly state gallon capacity, height, and diameter.

When you replace your electric commercial water heater, you will need to match the wattage and voltage with the new model. And when you replace your gas commercial water heater you will need to match the fuel type (gas or propane) and also the exhaust vent diameter on the new model.

Different Types of Commercial Water Heaters

Water heaters and heating take up a large amount of energy and will be some of the biggest contributors to your business electric bill. There are three basic types of water heaters, and three different types of fuel.

  • Tank storage water heater- A tank storage water heater takes the water and stores it in the tank. Once the water is in the tank then it starts heating the water. It is a reliable way to heat water, but if there is a high demand for hot water, the supply will eventually run out, and then take some time to heat the water all over again. Also, tank storage water heaters can waste a lot of energy, when the tank gets depleted, the tank will cool, so when it fills with water, now it has to heat the water and the tank again.

  • Tankless water heaters - These tankless water heaters heat water on demand and never run out of hot water. This water heater is also known as an "on-demand" water heater. These water heaters heat the water instantly whenever hot water is needed. They do not require a storage tank for the water so there isn't wasted energy when it comes to the tank. These water heaters are reliable, and users never have to worry about when they may run out of hot water.

  • A hybrid hot water heater - These do pretty much what they sound like, they have a small tank to store water, and they can also heat water on demand for continuous use. What makes these water heaters great, is they are the best of both worlds. When demand is high, they have the tank and the on-demand water heating to make sure there is always hot water for your business.

Energy is required to produce flames, or provide energy to the heating elements of the water heater.

  • Electric water heaters - Electric water heaters are the most common water heater found in homes and commercial buildings. Electricity is used to heat the heating elements to create hot water, be it an on-demand, tank water heater, or hybrid.

  • Gas water heater - Gas water heaters are the next most common water heater. The gas is used to create flames that heat the water. Natural gas is considered economical and an efficient fuel supply. A steady supply of natural gas can be found with a local utility company. Gas water heaters always have a nice supply of natural gas running to them, and even if the electricity goes out, the hot water heater will still work off the natural gas.

  • Oil-water heaters - These are not common water heaters in today's world. Oil can be used to create flames to heat the water, but once the oil runs out, you will have to fill the oil reservoir again. The other potential problem is usually oil is sold in bulk, so it may put a strain on the budget, and these water heaters are not known for being environmentally friendly.

First plumber we called wanted $3500.00 to replace everything. Emanuel came out and suggested we change one part and less than $300.00 later we was up and running again. From Mark, to Taylor, and then on to Emanuel the whole experience was professional and I will be a customer for life. Hopefully not often though. Great working with you guys!.
