Which Hot Water Product is Right for my Project? 

Monday March 13 2023

When it comes to upgrading and replacing your hot water supply equipment, it’s important to get it right.  You need reliability, performance, and you need to think about efficiency too. 

With the new, technically advanced Econostore from Stokvis, you have a large variation of options to ensure there’s a suitable model for almost any project.

Getting the right option installed is important. And it can be a task to make sure you go ahead with the right one. There’s a number of things you need to think about when you’re deciding what to go for, and thankfully for Stokvis customers, we have a specialised team on hand to work everything out for you. 


Why isn’t it easy? 

Well, hot water storage units such as the new Econostore come in a variety of sizes and designs to suit a vast range of different performance requirements.

Most commonly, they’re designed to store domestic hot water so that it can be used on demand.

You’ll find them in commercial and industrial applications such as schools, universities, hotels, prisons, care homes and leisure centres. And the type of Econostore you need is often dependent on many varying factors.

This is where the science behind choosing the right hot water product comes in…

Size DOES matter… 

Unless you have large amounts of excess energy to use from your heat source and can supply the full demand instantaneously, storage will almost certainly be required.

The size of the storage vessel you need will also depend on the application you are using it for. For example, if you are using it to provide hot water for a hotel you will need a larger storage vessel than a version used in a school. 

Other considerations are type of heat source and availability of plant room space (which is almost always very tight).

Then there’s the technical side of things:

  • What’s the heat load duty?
  • What’s the requirement of the system
  • How will it be operated?
  • What else in the building relies on the same heat source?
  • Is one unit enough? 

These are the challenges faced with almost every commercial hot water project. And, they’re also the exact same challenges that the Stokvis team tackles daily. This means we have the experience and the expertise to ask the right questions and help guide you in making the most effective product selections for your projects.
