When it comes to your American Standard commercial water heater that are many common issues that can occur during the summer months. With temperatures on the rise throughout the country, water heaters are inevitably bound to experience issues. There are many common issues that you should be aware of to help prevent any major failures or catastrophic issues causing your business to be without hot water. See below for four of the most common American Standard commercial water heater failures during the summer. 1. Water gets too hot: Many people turn the temperature of their water heaters up in the winter months to help compensate for the extremely cold temperatures. However, during the summer if the water temperature is still turned up from winter it can be scalding hot in the summer. The water temperature being turned up in the summer causes the water heater to overwork causing a faster than necessary breakdown of the unit and increased water bills. It is important that you remember to turn down the temperature of your water heater in the summer. 2. Maintenance troubles: During the summer many businesses experience an increase in business from hotels to restaurants as many people are on vacation and travelling. This can cause an increase in the usage of a company’s water heater. A water heater flush is a very important maintenance item to consider as harmful sediments can build up inside your water heater reducing its efficiency. 3. Pilot light loss: This occurs when the area surrounding the heater is warmer than the heater itself. A simple fix to this problem is to improve the ventilation around your water heater. 4. Warm water shortage: With the increased use of water in the summer months from extra travelers, extra showers, laundry, and/or additional cleaning it is likely necessary to purchase a larger water heater.
