Tips for Selecting a Commercial Water Heater

Choosing a new water heater isn’t as simple as you might think it is. There are many different things to keep in mind depending on your business needs and preferences. Plus, you’ll need to pick one that’s both right for your budget and hot water needs.

To help you decide which new commercial water heater is the best fit for your business or commercial property, here are three questions you should ask yourself while evaluating the options.

  • How big do I need the water heater to be?

This answer will vary depending on the size of your business operation, and how many people work there, shop there, visit, and so on. Purchasing a water heater that’s too big will cost you extra, and buying one that’s too small will leave your employees, customers or tenants without enough hot water. Therefore, it’s important to research exactly what size your space requires.

  • Do I care if it’s energy-efficient?

Purchasing an energy-efficient commercial water heater is a great way to help the environment and save money on your electric bills. However, the prices of these water heaters may vary, so you’ll need to check out the price tags and determine how important it is for you to snag an energy-efficient model.

  • Would I rather pay more upfront or spend money on repairs later on?

Some water heaters are more expensive to install at first, but will be more reliable through the coming years. Others are cheaper to install, but can call for regular maintenance and occasional repairs as they age. Depending on your budget, you may prefer one type of commercial water heater over the other.
