Storage hot water system uses a tank to store heated water in, so that there’s a volume of readily available hot water ready to use when needed. Storage hot water systems come in gas, electric and solar models, and represent a good choice for large hot water needs, such as in a household with many children or other residents. However they can also waste a lot of energy if you don’t have the right tank size. When you need to buy a new storage hot water system, or you need an existing one 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?
Storage hot water systems provide fast access to hot water. They us a tank to keep water at a constant temperature. Tanks vary in size, 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.
Hot water will naturally rise to the top of 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. The temperature change is detected by a sensor. Depending on the fuel source, model and tariff you’ve got, the burner will switch on straight away, or later to heat 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. This means you can have multiple hot taps on and not lose water pressure or heat.
It is important to choose the right hot water heater for your household. Choosing the incorrect tank size, or even deciding to use a storage hot water system when a more efficient hot water type, will result in wasted energy to heat the water. Every plumber from Metropolitan Plumbing is highly trained on all of the hot water units currently available on the market. They can provide accurate and up to date information to help you make the right decision.
