8 Things to Keep in Mind When Installing a New Hot Water System

Tips to Keep in Mind While Installing Hot Water System

Considering a new Adelaide hot water system installation? Read our expert tips to make the best decision:

  1. Size: storage hot water heaters are sized according to household size and hot water usage. The more people the larger the storage tank will be needed. A storage hot water heater that is too small will continually run out of hot water. While one that is too large will be more expensive to run and not economical or energy efficient. In our experience, continuous flow or instantaneous hot water systems are sized according to the number of hot water outlets in the home, rather than the number of people. Get in touch with your local hot water plumber to get some expert advice on the unit that will be best suited to your hot water needs.
  2. Space: different hot water systems have different space requirements. Tankless hot water systems are ideal for units or households with a space crunch. If you want to install a solar hot water system, you have to take in to account your roof space. While gas storage tanks need ample space for exhaust and a place for excess water.
  3. Cost: this is one of the major factors to consider when getting a new hot water system installed in your house or office. There are various systems that would cost a lot upfront but have lower operating costs in the long run and then there are hot water systems that cost little to install but have relatively higher operating costs. Discuss this with your hot water plumber in detail.
  4.
