When we use the term storage hot water system, we’re talking about one of the two ways in which hot water is delivered to us when we need it. For this particular type, the storage hot water system uses a tank to collect heated water in, so that there’s a store of hot water ready to use when needed. Available in all fuel sources, storage hot water systems can be a very good choice if you have lots of people who need to use hot water, such as in a household with many children or other residents, but they can also waste a lot of energy if you don’t have enough people or have too many people for your tank size. When you need to buy a new storage hot water system, or you need an existing repaired, contact Metropolitan Plumbing and we’ll be able to make sure you get the best results.
How does a storage hot water system actually work?
By using a tank to keep water at a constant temperature, storage hot water systems provide fast access to hot water. Tanks vary in size, anywhere from 25 litres all the way up to 400, and different tank sizes will be better for different applications. If you have only few people to service, then a medium sized tank will be best. If you have a lot, then you’ll need a larger one. If it’s only you, then a small tank will be fine. However, choosing the incorrect tank size, or even deciding to use a storage hot water system when another delivery method will be better, will result in energy being wasted heating water that will never get used. You can discuss all this with your attending Metropolitan Plumbing hot water systems expert when purchasing and installing a new storage hot water system.
Hot water will naturally rise to the top f the tank, so water is drawn from here when needed. As hot water is taken from a storage hot water system, it’s replaced with new cold water. This change in temperature is detected by a sensor, then, depending on what fuel source, model and tariff you’ve got, the burner will switch on straight away or later and bring the water back up to the set temperature. Since there’s almost no interference with storage hot water heaters, hot water will come out at the faucet at very close to mains pressure, meaning you can have multiple hot taps on and not loose water pressure or heat.
