Hot Water System Installation
Getting the Hot Water You Need
If you find yourself constantly running out of hot water or spot water at the bottom of a storage water tank, it may be time to ask about a new hot water system installation. A hot water heater is one of the most important plumbing appliances in a busy household, and it’s important to keep it running properly.
Common Reasons to Call for Repairs
A leaking hot water heater is a common problem with aging hot water heaters. Leaks can come from a crack in the bottom of the tank or a leaking hose valve. When a tank leaks at the bottom, the hottest water drains out and is replaced by cool water; the result is higher energy bills. Our fully licenced hot water installation plumbers can check your tank and locate a leak in the system.
Sediment build-up can also occur in older hot water heaters. Over time, limescale and other minerals can accumulate on the walls and settle on the burner within your tank. This affects the performance of your heater, and your water won’t heat up as it should. To ensure this doesn’t happen, contact one of our reliable plumbers for sediment inspection.
Another reason to call for hot water maintenance is the flame on your heater’s burner. The flame should be blue with yellow tips. If you spot a yellow-orange flame, you should call for service immediately. This could be a sign of incomplete burning, which can lead to the production of carbon monoxide.
Replacing Your Water Heater
The life of a hot water heater is 8 to 12 years. Most people wait until the heater completely fails before calling for service. Not only could this be a big drain on your budget but also it could cause catastrophic flooding.
Your hot water heater already accounts for as much as 25 per cent of the electrical costs in your home. As the system becomes older, it won’t work as efficiently, and it will be more expensive to operate.
