Generally, a boiler will be more than enough to supply hot water to commercial premises. But, depending on the type of establishment, with a growth in customer and consumer visits, perhaps it is best to adopt a comprehensive heating system, which has two functions: heating the water and generating heating, especially in the coldest times.
This combination is commonly called system boilers, being a little different from conventional heating systems. Likewise, the application of radiators differs in many ways. This class of devices, being of an important rarity, is capable of substituting the most conventional mechanisms. They are hybrid heating and water heating systems in one. Although it will have to be said, it’s probable difficulty to conceive an installation, without the appropriate technicians in the field of HVAC.
Hybrid water heater and heating system
Whichever option is selected, it is essential to have a deep knowledge of the key parts and components, to install a system that is suitable for commercial premises, or even larger establishments, almost of an industrial nature. A couple of transcendental components in a hybrid water heater and heating system would be the expansion vessel and the pump. In addition, it is possible that in some cases, a cistern is not even needed to store cold water, since the same mechanism can be directly connected to the heating network of the commercial building.
A notable benefit of the hybrid system is the cylindrical storage capacity, very favorable for relatively large establishments, with a high influx of customers who require hot water all the time. In this sense, it is normal to see this kind of hybrid system in restaurants or fast-food places, which also require good heating.
Cold water cisterns would not be needed, as they have parts in the same interiors; space for installation, will not result in much trouble. These systems are very flexible, in terms of their operability and functionality. It will be very rare that they require additional components; perhaps only in situations of leaks and sectors that freeze during the coldest months, although this is avoidable by applying special protections.
The user is only asked to take into account some aspects so that undesirable situations do not arise. The combination of a water heater with a heating system, depending on the pressure of the central supply, if it is low, then the flows will also be low. Therefore, it is essential to constantly review the supply conditions of the building, and react accordingly, to avoid eventual unfavorable situations, in the need for hot water for diners, clients, and workers.
It is also relevant to check those more obsolete structures where it is planned to install a modern configuration, such as the aforementioned hybrid systems, to try to fit both parts perfectly. This is done in advance in the inclusion of additional devices, or even structural changes in the buildings, for the optimal circulation of hot water.
Installation of the water heater
The water heater contains key points for its correct installation in structures for business and marketing. One of the most requested configurations is those that have multiple hot water outlets; This, to some degree, will guarantee the correct flow for commercial premises and stores, and of course, for the heating itself.
Likewise, the pieces being very well made will make the installation of the water heater too easy for all the premises, employing centralized boilers that connect to all the devices. Together, the more high-quality components, the maintenance will also be lower, both in costs and time.
If there is an old central heating network within the facilities, it will be necessary to check the form to adapt the systems to each other, calculating in the process, the tolerance to high water pressures. Hybrid hot water and heating configurations that operate with electricity and gas are the most common options, and if photovoltaic elements or solar installations can be added, it will be much better.
