Hot Water System Servicing and Installations
Did you know that regular maintenance of your hot water system can extend its lifespan? Always check your manufacturer’s guide for their recommendation with regards to servicing and maintenance of your hot water unit.
Now remember, hot water repairs should always be done by a fully qualified plumber.
Different Types of Hot Water Systems
There are 2 basic types of hot water systems: storage systems and continuous flow (or instantaneous) systems. Both can use one or more energy sources to heat water, including gas (LPG and natural gas), electricity, and solar power.
Storage Water Heater
Storage systems heat the water in a tank, which is then available for use throughout the day. Storage tanks are used on most electric, gas, solar and heat pump hot water systems. The tanks are insulated to reduce the heat loss over time and to reduce the consumption of energy needed to continually reheat the water.
Continuous Flow Hot Water System
Continuous hot water systems - otherwise known as tankless, instantaneous or continuous flow hot water systems - are the alternative to traditional storage-based hot water systems. Continuous hot water system only heats your water as and when you need it, you won’t waste money reheating a large storage tank again and again when you don’t need it. That means your energy bill is going to look a little lighter, and you’ll also be being a bit kinder to the environment.
