What Is a Commercial Water Heater?
Ever wondered about the differences between residential and commercial water heaters? There are several important differences between these units that are based on how each one is used. A commercial water heater allows for consistent demand for hot water. They heat a range of devices throughout a commercial space and can handle the wear and tear that comes with consistent use. This is different from residential water heaters that supply hot water “on a limited demand.”
Safety is another key difference between these units. Commercial water heaters get exponentially hotter than their residential equivalents. They can also handle upwards of 250 gallons of water at a time. The energy requirements are also different — commercial water heaters support 1,000,000 BTUs, compared with residential water heaters that only support around 75,000 BTUs.
Commercial Water Heater Services
Commercial water heater issues aren’t always evident until they become problematic for your business. This is why regular maintenance is so important. Professional maintenance will examine and test your heater to monitor for any signs of potential trouble. This type of periodic checkup can greatly reduce the odds of a breakdown that could halt your business operation due to a lack of hot water.
Keep your water heater in the best shape possible by looking for red flags, including water pooling in the collection pan, rumbling and banging noises coming from the unit, as well as rust in the water, or a lack of hot water. If you spot any of these warning signs, it’s time to call a commercial water heater service like Aire Serv.

Commercial Water Heater Repair and Maintenance
It’s been said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This is especially true when it comes to commercial water heaters. Generally speaking, the longer a unit goes without maintenance, the more inefficient it becomes. Given how expensive these systems can be to replace, it pays to take care of your unit. Commercial water heaters are built to last between 15 and 20 years. Yearly professional maintenance can extend the life of your investment and ensure you’re getting the maximum results for the entire lifespan of the unit.
Of course, commercial water heater maintenance may not prevent every kind of problem. If you notice issues with sediment build-up or a lack of consistent hot water, Aire Serv professionals can check your system to resolve potential issues before they develop into a bigger problem.
