Learn about Church Heaters

Church and Baptistry Heaters

Technological advancements have penetrated each and every part of life. There are a number of heating units that are specifically designed for churches and baptisteries. Due to changes in the manner in which baptisteries are designed, manufacturing companies had to dig deeper to discover new models that were compatible with the new materials. For example, modern baptisteries are made from fiberglass and so they had to come up with new heaters that would not warp or melt the material. This included incorporating adjustable temperature controls and high limit switches. Implementation of these changes has really helped to enhance safety, efficiency and durability of these heaters.

Below is an analysis of the various heaters used in churches to help you get a better perspective on their functionalism and design.

Circulation Heaters

They are the most common units in the world today due to their unique capabilities. In most cases, they are fixed permanently on the baptistery tub and connected using quality wires to the main electrical systems or connections in the premises. Unlike other models, these heaters require a high wattage that ranges between 3kw and 12kw but this is dependent on your preferred model and the manufacturer. They have an automatic filing and drainage feature which accurately controls inflow and outflow of water. Other features that make these heaters unique include remote control, variable thermostat and auto heating capabilities.

Immersion Heaters

These are some of the oldest models in the market. They are designed in either “T” or “I” shape to meet the diverse clients’ needs. Nowadays, it is possible to get a standard model with 110 volt plugs or 240 volts plug. You can also request the manufacture to either install or drop GFCI feature depending on your budget and needs. One of the highlights about these units is that their thermostats can automatically alter water temperature at specific time or period. This means that you can set it to heat the water before the session. Due to their compact design, they are an ideal choice for small tubs. Also, they are very light in weight and so you can easily relocate with it or disconnect from the tub after church session for storage purposes.

Hybrid Heaters

As the name suggests, these are the most technologically advanced heaters in the world today. They are designed, assembled and tested by professionals to ensure that clients get value for their money always. A close look at their features and functionalism shows that they are a cross between circulation and immersion system. One of the supreme differences is that it has a modern heating element that can heat up water without necessarily touching the fiberglass tub base. However, you will need to invest in a quality water pump to supply water to the heating element. Just like immersion heater, it’s very portable and a perfect choice for both large and small tubs.

Automatic Baptistery Heating Unit

This is a perfect unit for both existing and new baptisteries. It has an automatic water level control feature that estimates amount of water in the baptistery. Some of its unique features include UV sanitizer, remote control panel, in built time clock, thermostat and booster heater. For it to work optimally, the pump should be positioned at least 20 feet from the baptistery and always connected to a power socket unless when being washed or repaired. Using its time clock, you can set it to start heating water a few hours before church session.

No matter the type of heating units that you choose, ensure that they are properly installed by an expert plumber. Be sure to follow the specific instructions provided by the manufacturer to get most utility from it.
