Investing in the right water heater for your business can help reduce operational costs and energy consumption. If you’re considering an upgrade, here is a guide to help you determine when it’s the right time to upgrade your water management system.
Water Heater Age
Older water heaters can expand the bottom line when they aren’t efficient. Not sure how old yours is? Check the manufacturer’s warranty period. The warranty period will shed light as to the life expectancy, which ranges from 6 to 12 years. More efficient models can have a life expectancy of 20 years or longer depending on the type of water heater.
Water build up around the system can be a sign that it’s time to replace the water heater. The build-up could be due to a pipe or loose connection to the system, or it could be a much larger issue.
Visible cracks on the system or sediment from water flow can also signal the need for a necessary repair or replacement.
Are you noticing sounds coming from the water heater? These noises during operation may be evidence of increased pressure in the system. If you hear clanking or banging in a commercial gas water heater, it can be a result of water hammer or sediment in the tank. If you hear system noises, you may want to contact a professional to determine if a repair or upgrade is necessary.
Inconsistent Water Temperature
Inconsistent water temperature can serve as a warning signal that it might be time to upgrade your water heater for your business.
