Senior Care Facility Water Heaters

The safety and comfort of your facility’s residents depend on access to hot water.

When you’re serving a vulnerable population, like older adults, hot water is vital to their health and well-being. Hot water isn’t just important to keeping your seniors clean, happy, and comfortable – it’s also critical for their protection from germs and infectious diseases. Senior care isn’t an area where you can make do with cold water or an unreliable water supply. 

Protection for Every Aspect of Senior Care

There are so many aspects of senior care that require careful attention to water temperature and a steady supply to meet high demand. For example, health codes for laundry and bedding sanitization require water at a minimum of 140° F. Dishes and kitchen equipment may require water that reaches 180° F to meet disinfection protocols. On the other hand, bathing water for residents must never exceed 120° F. To meet these qualifications, your water heating system must be in tip-top shape. 

At senior care facilities, keeping elderly residents comfortable, safe, and healthy is of the utmost importance, and for that, you need constant access to a steady supply of hot water. Cleaning and sanitizing is the name of the game when it comes to mitigating germs and illness.

With a vulnerable population like seniors, there’s no margin for error in water heater service. A food-borne illness or a virus can be a critical situation. Even a brief hot water outage during cold weather can put your clients in a dangerous position. Water heater problems should never put someone at risk.
