Hot water is relied upon for multiple purposes in the home and is a luxury that most homes can’t do without. Whether bathing, hand washing or household chores, free flowing hot water is a luxury often taken for granted.
If you are experiencing issues with your hot water system, don’t delay having it assessed by a hot water plumbing professional. There can be warning signs your hot water system may need attention including inconsistent hot water temperature, a leaking hot water system and unusually loud noises coming from your hot water system.
If the time has come you need to replace your hot water system, a common question is how do I choose the best system for my home?
- How many people live in your home or use your hot water?
- How many appliances use hot water in your home?
- Do you have a preference over a gas or electric hot water system?
How many people live in your home or use your hot water?
When choosing the best size hot water system for your home, it’s important to consider how much hot water your home uses. Are you an empty nester? Do you have a family with small children that will be living at home for the next 10 years? Do you have family or friends come to stay regularly? Keeping in mind a hot water system can last for up to 10 years it is important to consider your hot water needs now, and in the future, when choosing the best size for your home.
How many appliances use hot water in your home?
While bathrooms are often the main place hot water is used in the home, it’s important to consider other places hot water is needed. Hot water is used in kitchens by the hot water tap in the sink and the dishwasher. Laundries use hot water through your laundry sink tap and washing machine. Does your home wash regularly on the hot cycle? How often do you run your dishwasher? These factors should be considered, especially if you rely on several hot water sources operating at the one time.
Do you have a preference over a gas or electric hot water system?
It is not only the size of the hot water system you will need to choose, but also the type. Would you prefer an electric or a gas hot water system? Do you prefer a storage hot water unit or continuous flow/instantaneous hot water system? Talking to a plumbing hot water specialist can be the best way to decide which type of hot water system and size hot water system is best for your home.
