If you have a cold water pressure washer it is possible to turn it into a hot water washer with a modular heater. Modular heaters come in various size and fuel choices.
If you regularly wash with cold water but occasionally need hot water then a modular heater may be just what you need. But, there are some things you need to consider before going out to buy one.
The cost of a cold water washer and separate modular heater may be more expensive the buying an all-in-one hot water washer.
Most modular heaters require an outside power source to run the blower and igniters. All-in-one hot water washers have their own power source from a charging coil on the engine. Separate oil fired heaters will need either 12 volt or 110 volt power to operate.
The exception is a propane or natural gas fired burner. These burners are naturally aspirated, meaning there is no blower required, due to pressure forcing the fuel into the burner, much like a backyard BBQ. Ignition is created from a standing pilot, much like the way the furnace operates in your home.
