Restaurant Solar Water Heating Systems

Restaurants are energy and water-intensive businesses that rely heavily on reliable sources of electrical power and warm water. Restroom sinks and dishwashers are frequently in use and require the water to always be at specific temperatures. The demands of the sector mean that energy and utility bills make up a large part of a restaurant's expenses.

Here at SunEarth, we understand that energy-efficient equipment and water heating can result in higher profit margins. For over 40 years, we have been supplying restaurants of all shapes and sizes with high-quality solar water heating systems that ensure that there is always a supply of warm water readily available.

Common Applications 

Restaurants are often judged by their clients on the quality of their restrooms. If they are dirty and there is no warm water for handwashing, then this will cause an unfavorable reaction. Likewise, restaurants require a steady flow of hot water for the kitchens so that they meet state and federal health and safety regulations. 

SunEarth's solar water heating system for restaurants provides an eco-friendly solution for various restaurants applications:

  • restrooms
  • hot water for kitchens
  • food preparation areas
  • kitchen equipment
  • dishwashers
  • heating for the restaurant

Why Choose Solar Water Heating for Restaurants? 

According to a recent Energy Star report, restaurants use up to seven times more energy per square foot than other commercial buildings. A lot of this energy is generated in the kitchen by using energy-intensive equipment and hot water around the clock. Installing a solar water heating system provides many benefits for restaurant owners.

  • Reduce Operating Costs - Restaurants use a lot of hot water, no matter how big the site is. Solar water heating systems provide virtually all your hot water needs at a significantly lower cost than gas boilers.
  • Add Value To Your Brand - Businesses that install restaurant solar water heater systems and promote their commitment to sustainability will gain a lot of positive attention from customers. Solar water heating systems are a clean energy source that will lead to considerable decreases in your restaurant's carbon emissions.
  • Cost-Effective - As more and more states encourage commercial properties to utilize renewable energy sources, businesses can use attractive rebate programs to reduce a solar water heating system's installation costs. With the savings your business will make from your monthly energy bills, the system can pay itself off within a few years.

Other benefits include an uninterrupted source of hot water, which requires minimal maintenance and protects your business from any fluctuations in gas prices.
