  • Hot Water Unit Replacement and Specs to Suppliers


Hot water is essential for any business or home. Nothing is more frustrating than waking up to a broken or leaking hot water system, and choosing the right system can be confusing and stressful. There is a huge range of different hot water systems on the market. Durability, features, and options vary widely. This affects the price of any given system. With so many options, making the right choice can feel impossible.

Firstly, you need to consider if your current water heater is big enough and energy efficient. Otherwise, you could be paying too much for your household water heating. All families have different lifestyles and schedules, and these should be considered when selecting the type or size of water heater that best suits the needs of the household.

It is not uncommon in a busy household that the family just puts up with the output of a previously installed product, just because it was the unit that was there when they moved into the house.

Replacement Hot Water Systems

If you are replacing an existing hot water system with the same type in the same position, installation costs are relatively low. If you need to reposition your hot water system to a different site on the property or are looking at upgrading to a larger service or electrical system where you previously had a gas unit installed this could significantly increase the cost of the install.

Another factor to consider is that a new law implemented in 2012 means that tempering valves must be fitted on every hot water system. These anti-scald devices regulate water temperature to 50 degrees. In most cases, the manufacturer warranty is void if these valves are not fitted.
