  • Boiler instead of water heater for restaurant?

    I have been doing a lot of work for a national seafood chain lately. The restaurants always run out of hot water because they run hot water for hours to thaw stuff out. Most of the heaters are A.O. Smith BTR 500's. I end up adding a BTR 365. The mechanical rooms are usually way too small, with two big heaters and a water softener and brine tank. They won't go tankless, can anybody suggest a boiler set up that they have done?

    Do you have any huge self service laundries in your area? They go through lots of hot water all day while open and and especially during rush times. You might try to take a look at some of their setups.

    You might try calling up places that do commercial boiler repairs as many also do commercial installations and should have ideas. Give them the size of the room and all other info you can. Tell them it's not for building heating but rather for high demand domestic hot water needs.

        Yes, indeed. A restaurant must have a boiler and storage tank setup.
