When Rinnai recently worked with a state department of corrections to upgrade five of its facilities to tankless water heaters, the results were compelling: The tankless systems increased efficiency by 30 percent, saving a lot of tax dollars. So it’s no surprise the department plans to make similar upgrades in 13 more facilities next year.

In Supply House Times, Matt Miazga, vice president of sales/membership at the American Supply Association (ASA), takes an in-depth look at the factors causing restaurants, institutions, and other commercial building operators to push commercial tankless water heating growth to significant heights.

“I expect it to only to continue to grow exponentially in the future as owners, specifiers and contractors experience and witness the advantages of a high-efficiency tankless domestic hot water system,” Brett Butler, brand supervisor for Navien, tells him. “When compared to other options, the costs, ease of installation, venting, operational efficiency, ease of maintenance and service, redundancy abilities and location capabilities, it just makes the most sense.”
