With high energy efficiency and high thermal capacity, commercial propane water heaters can be used for building sanitation, cleaning and disinfecting equipment and many other uses where instant hot water is needed.
Propane tank water heaters are more efficient and economical to operate than their electric counterparts. They are available in a wide range of capacities to meet many hot water requirements. They are more compact and efficient than electric water heaters: a 100-gallon unit produces the same amount of hot water as a 125-gallon electric unit. Propane water heater tanks can maintain hot water temperatures up to 83°C (180°F).
Tankless water heaters produce hot water instantly as soon as a faucet is turned on and are ideal for users who want to reduce the space required for hot water production. They reduce the energy demand to maintain large quantities of hot water at the desired temperature, produce hot water on demand at the desired temperature and are not subject to service interruptions.
