5 Tips To Get The Most Out Of Your Hot Water System Installation

Professional Cropped

If you’re looking into a hot water system installation for your home or business, or a hot water heater replacement, there are a few steps to follow that will help maximise your new system’s lifespan.

  1. Decide on what type of hot water installation you’d like to vie for. The main choices are gas, electric, and solar – each with its own hot water system installation cost.
  2. Find the type of hot water system you’ve decided upon within your price range.
  3. Get a reputable hot water specialist to install or replace your hot water system (we mean us).
  4. Be diligent with the maintenance aspect of your hot water system to avoid unnecessary expenses. Look for signs denoting wear and tear (specifically rust and corrosion).

Things to know before your hot water system installation:

If you’re going for a hot water installation in Ipswich, here are some tips to keep in mind:

  1. Installation takes 1.5 – 2 hours, so set some time aside for the hot water system specialist to work their magic.
  2. According to Australian law, the minimum volume of water that hot water tanks hold is 250L.
  3. Extend your hot water system’s lifespan by draining it on an annual basis. This helps reduce the amount of sediment that’s built up at the bottom of the tank – ask our specialists how to do this.
  4. If you find rust on your hot water tank, try to remove it.
  5. Have your hot water system serviced annually. The temperature release valve, thermostat or element are parts that usually need to be replaced.

What size of hot water tank suits you and your family?

It’s usually enough to allot 50 L per person, but best practice is allotting 75 L (high consumption) to each member of your household. There may be some individuals that do well with 20 L – 30 L. Once you’ve determined how much hot water each individual will use, purchase a hot water system with a tank that suffices or is slightly greater than you and your families need. In general, if you use a lot of hot water during the day, you’ll need a larger tank. Another thing to keep in mind is that a gas water heater’s storage tank will be smaller than an electric water heater’s storage tank.
