Most commercial businesses have a hot water supply in this day and age. Being able to wash your hands after using the toilet at work is more than just a luxury. It is a necessity from a hygiene point of view. Health and safety is an important issue for all businesses. Having access to hot water at work helps employers to enact their duty of care towards their employee’s well-being.

Where to start

When you are considering obtaining a quote for a commercial water heater installation in South London or anywhere else for that matter you need to know where to start. The first thing to take on board is that there is a difference between a water heater and a boiler.

A boiler is a part of what is referred to as a closed loop system. The loop facilitates hot water and steam circulating through a series of pipes. These pipes can feed radiators or other heating systems such as wet underfloor heating. The water goes around the system warming the various elements, then it returns to the boiler for reheating and recycling.

A hot water boiler heats the water to higher temperatures than water heaters. This is because it turns the water to steam. It is this steam that is circulated as it is easier to move around and it doesn’t lose as much heat as water does.

The other thing about water heaters is that some models don’t have tanks built into them. Whereas a boiler stores hot water in its shell, water heaters only heat on demand. Typically, these are ideal for occasional hand washing in staff toilets.

About storage water heaters

Storage water heaters are good for storing large quantities of hot water. If your commercial water heater installation in London needs to cater for lots of people using hot water at the same time, this may be your best option. Just bear in mind that stored water will gradually lose its warmth. This means more expense in reheating the water for continual use.

When a balanced flue commercial water heater installation in South London is best

If your business premises has a problem with contaminated air (i.e. in a dry cleaner’s premises, or a factory processing chemicals), a balanced flue system might be the best solution. This type of installation draws clean air in from outside the building. Hot water is delivered straight away to the point of use.

Advantages of fan assisted flue systems

Another type of commercial water heater installation in South London you might be interested in is a fan assisted flue system. This type of heater is an excellent choice when an extended flue run-in required. The inclusion of the fan enables hot water to be supplied immediately. If positioning is a problem due to building constraints, fan assist is ideal.

Which type of fuel?

Having decided what type of commercial water heater installation in South London it is you need, you should next consider what fuel you prefer to use. There are several options:

  • Electric
  • Mains gas
  • LPG or Propane
  • Oil
  • Solar

Given the vagaries of the British climate, solar may not be your best route. If you choose a gas installation, make sure you employ a Gas Safe registered plumber. CW Services Plumbing and Heating are fully, and currently Gas Safe approved.
