Laundromat - Replacing Two Boilers with Two Lochinvar Commercial Water Heaters (?)
We are looking at taking over a laundromat that old owner let run into ground. We didn't think things were that bad until we looked at the two boilers in the back of the building. We reached the original business owner of location before he later sold it and the person he sold business to ran the business into the ground. He said the boilers were used just to generate hot water and not for heating the space the business occupies. We emailed the state boiler inspector who left his business card on one of the boilers and sent him the photos posted here; he recommended changing out the boilers. A Lochinvar sales person happen to be passing by and we brought him to look at the boilers and he suggested the same thing. He pointed out the boiler on right was turned off and we assumed that machine was dead. He took a look at the number of washers in the business and recommended either two of the Lochinvar Shield water heater with built in water tank or two of the Lochinvar Armor X2 water heater with exterior water tank. Probably common sense, if not my gut tells us to replace the boilers. The Lochinvar sales person provided good insight and information; any different brands we should looks at or any other advice provided would be appreciated. Thank you!
