Winnelson and Windustrial provide commercial water heaters 24 hours a day

Service for contractors in eastern Indiana and northern Kentucky to Bowling Green, Ohio

DAYTON, Ohio, June 23, 2011 – WinWholesale, one of the nation’s largest distributors, along with its Winnelson and Windustrial wholesale companies are providing commercial water heater availability 24 hours a day for contractors in eastern Indiana and from northern Kentucky to Bowling Green, Ohio.

Plumbing and mechanical contractors can call 1-877-94-HOT H2O (877-944-6842) to have an A.O. Smith commercial water heater ready for pick-up from a Winnelson or Windustrial location in less than an hour or be delivered in four hours or less, said Ron Bohannon, WinWholesale’s eastern region vice president. When delivered, the new water heater is placed, readied for connection and the old heater is taken away. The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“When a water heater goes out in a hotel, restaurant, hospital or another place that must have hot water 24 hours a day, those users can’t wait until someone else’s normal business hours for a replacement. Restaurants need hot water for dishwashing and hotel guests expect hot water for their showers,” Bohannon said. “Winnelson and Windustrial locations are on-call and ready at any time to provide a commercial water heater to plumbing and mechanical contractors for installation.”

There are 13 Winnelson and Windustrial locations from Northern Kentucky to Bowling Green, Ohio, providing the water heaters.
A.O. Smith Corporation is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of commercial and residential water heating equipment.
