Electric tankless hot water heaters can be a great way to cut back on your hot water costs brought about by large-scale laundry.
Hospitals, hotels, apartment buildings, laundromats and other buildings often have a lot of uses for hot water. One of the largest is commercial scale laundry. Depending on the size of your building and your client base, you could be washing thousands of pounds of laundry a day. This can generate high hot water heating costs, and use a lot of water in the process.
More and more companies are looking to become more sustainable and cut down on overhead costs in the process. For businesses where laundry is so common, installing a more efficient water heater can be a great way to cut back on these costs, while at the same time saving water use and heating costs.
Hot water heating is the second largest utility expense. This is due in part to the fact that conventional water heating tanks require massive amounts of power to keep water at the right temperature. Because the water in the tank needs to be kept at a certain temperature, even when the water is not being used.
By switching to a tankless water heater, you can achieve savings in a variety of facets of your business:
- Space: Tankless water heaters are 90 percent smaller than water tanks. This can free up space for more washers, or even another room in your building.
- Water: By heating water on demand, you do not need to wait for your water to get warm.
- Energy: Because tankless solution heat water on demand, stand by costs are limited, saving massive amounts of money.
- Replacement Costs: Tankless water heaters can last over 20 years, making them the longest lasting on the market.
