Hot Water System Geelong – Ins and Outs

Posted by on January 14, 2018

Hot water is a necessity in every Australian household.  Most hot water is used in showering or bathing but it is also used in the kitchen and laundry.  Buying the correct hot water system Geelong for your household means that you will always have an adequate supply for your everyday usage and thus avoid the frustration that occurs when the hot water runs out.

Different Types of Hot Water Systems Geelong

The two main types of hot water system Geelong that are available are storage water heaters and continuous flow (or instantaneous) water heaters.  Both of these hot water system Geelong are suitable for the average household.

Storage Water Hot Water System Geelong

Storage water heaters heat the water, which is then stored in an insulated tank for use throughout the day.  They are most economical when run on solar energy, natural gas, or off-peak electricity.  However, you can also run them on LPG, peak electricity and solid fuels.  If you have a mains pressure system, the hot water will come through at the same pressure as the cold water does, meaning that more than one hot water tap can be turned on at the same time without any loss of pressure.  Constant pressure systems deliver the hot water at a lower pressure than mains pressure systems and are normally located in the roof space of a home.  The amount of pressure depends on the vertical height between the tank and the point of use.

Continuous Hot Water System Geelong

Continuous flow or instantaneous water heaters heat the water as it is required, removing the necessity for a storage tank. This also means that it is impossible to run out of hot water.  Because they are significantly smaller than storage water heaters, they can be installed externally hanging on a wall or some smaller units for individual taps can be internally installed. These heaters are connected to the mains water supply and deliver heated water at a slightly reduced pressure than cold water.  Adequate amounts of hot water can be delivered to one or two points within the home at one time and some units have electronic controls to deliver precise temperature control.  However, it is vital that the hot water system Geelong is correctly sized according to how they will be used.  Continuous flow heaters operate the most economically on natural gas but they can also use LPG or general tariff electricity.

It is always advisable to seek the assistance of a professional Geelong Plumber to advise on what type of unit is best for your situation. They will take into consideration how many bedrooms and people live in the home. Another important factor to consider is if one is thinking of installing a continuous hot water system Geelong then the gas supply lines in your home must be of a specific size. When installing a new hot water system Geelong make sure the plumber Geelong that you choose is experienced and knowledgeable in hot water systems Geelong.
