Choose an efficient water heater

Sometimes the simplest tips are the most effective. Choosing a water heater with a high gross efficiency can lead to boosted energy-efficiency resulting in lower running costs and a reduced carbon footprint. For instance, Andrews’ ECOflo has up to 96 per cent energy efficiency, meaning that commercial premises can provide a continuous supply of hot water without running up substantial financial and environmental costs.

Go low NOx

Commercial properties could be keeping their efficiency standards low by continuing to use their existing non- ErP compliant water heaters. Investing in a newer model that complies with the latest NOx regulations could lead to a more efficient use of fuel while

lowering the harmful emissions emitted from the water heater.

Sizeit right

The biggest mistake commercial premises can make is installing a water heater that is either too large or too small for the needs of users. Should the chosen water heater be too large, a business could find that they are spending money on fuel to heat excess water that goes unused.

While a water heater that is too small will be unable to cope with the demands of the business, leaving showers running cold and customers and employees unhappy. It’s easy to prevent this, make use of manufacturer sizing advice and tools such as Andrews’ Size-it (, to help choose the right water heater for the task in hand.

Spend time wisely

Investing in an easy to maintain water heater with a single bottom drain and large inspection hatch could help speed up the time it takes to inspect and clean the appliance - providing in- house engineers with the time they need to focus on other necessary tasks. Boosting efficiency doesn’t have to be a challenge, savings on carbon
