Considering a high efficiency water heater for commercial applications? The choice between standard and high efficiency is just one of the many decisions you’ll have to make when determining your water heater set-up. Let’s walk through some of the pros of the high efficiency option.
High efficiency water heaters operate at 95% efficiency, while standard water heaters operate at about 80%. Thinking in terms of money – with the more efficient version you are losing about 5 cents of every dollar and with a standard model it’s more like 20 cents. On top of the overall savings in operational costs, there is a dramatically reduced risk of carbon monoxide poisoning- always a good thing! These units are good at heating water quickly, and don’t require a fire rated room.
Another thing to consider is the ENERGY STAR rating, or lack thereof, of your unit. Appliances or products with this rating are required to operate as well or better than similar products in it’s class, and use between 20-30% less energy than required by federal standards. Obviously, this is great from an environmental perspective, and saves you money in the long-term.
