There's no company big or small that can't benefit from an electric tankless water heater, including laser tag arenas. Don't get burned on the field and at the faucet – switch to tankless water heaters.
Going green is constantly on every business' mind, and it should be no different for the laser tag industry. The game itself is environmentally friendly, it wouldn't take much to go a step further and make the business the same. Electric tankless water heaters not only cut down on the amount of resources used by heating the water on-demand, but they reduce the company's carbon footprint. According to the Department of Energy, tankless water heaters are anywhere from 8 to 34 percent more energy efficient than storage water heaters, making the switch favorable both on the wallet and for public relations.
Electric tankless water heaters are quick and easy to install and require little maintenance afterwards. The DOE pointed out that tankless water heaters last on average 5 years longer than storage water heaters, which only last for 10 or 15 years.
"Using a low-flow faucet can vastly reduce an energy bill."
Using a low-flow faucet in tandem with an electric tankless water heater can vastly reduce the price of the utility bill. Average faucets pour out water at 2.5 gallons per minute, while low-flow faucets can reduce that to only 0.5 to 1 gpm, according to Code Green Houston. This saves the business money, not just from absent minded individuals who leave the water running in the bathroom, but on the overall price of the utility bill.
Lower bills and higher life expectancy give electric tankless water heaters a favorable return on investment for consumers. While the initial cost may be higher than installing a storage water heater, in the long term more money will be saved by going tankless.
Size means a lot
Commercial rent is rising with no signs of stopping any time soon. According to a study by Cushman & Wakefield, a commercial real estate company, 46 percent of countries in the world are showing a rise in rental rates. Using space efficiently is more necessary than ever, and storage water heaters can be a big reason for wasting it. Besides their clunky structure, storage water heaters constantly fall victim to the ever-changing National Appliance Energy Conservation Act guidelines, wherein the latest updates have them expanding in size by 2 inches in diameters.
These changes mean costs for your laser tag business. If you've built a tiny shed or hide-away to keep your large storage water heater, you'll need to completely remodel that area. Switching to a tankless water heater saves you the time and money in that process. Electric tankless water heaters can be deployed as point-of-use products, meaning you can put them in every bathroom in the building. This allows you to cut back on the amount of piping running throughout the building and focus on design and an overall better quality water heater system. Electric tankless water heaters promote safety and cost effective spending.
Safety first, safety always
Avoiding litigation is of paramount concern for any company, but especially laser tag businesses. It could mean the difference between a very profitable 10-year stretch, or a business plan that goes belly up. Children always find a way to get themselves into trouble, and a business shouldn't be held responsible for it.
Out of all of the admissions to burn centers between 2003-2012, the American Burn Association found that 34 percent of them were due to scalds. Scalds can occur at just 20 degrees Fahrenheit above normal hot water temperatures – 140 degrees, according to the Burn Foundation. The Burn Foundation also observed that the two segments of society most at risk are those under 5 years old and above 64 years old.
What all these numbers do together is work in tandem – in a place where the target demographic is children birthday parties, a laser tag business will want to be prepared and cautious. Switching to an electric tankless water heater allows the manager to relax knowing his customers are in good hands. Storage water heaters can spike at times, but thermo optical sensors keep the temperature in check when it comes out at the faucet.
Longevity comes from public appearance, cost-effective spending and selling a safe product for the public – electric tankless water heaters provide all three.
