Most of us don’t pay much attention to our hot water units until they stop working. To help you understand your system a little better here are some basics:
Continuous Flow Hot Water Systems
A continuous flow hot water system is sometimes known as an instantaneous hot water system. These types of hot water systems heat the water in line with the demands of the home. Unlike other hot water systems they do not hold or store hot water for later use and are often much smaller in size. Because these units heat water that matches the demand of the home and don’t hold hot water for later use you will never run out of hot water!
Mains Pressure Hot Water Systems
A mains pressure hot water system may also be referred to as a storage hot water system. These systems feature large cylindrical tanks which are used to heat and hold hot water. Mains pressure hot water systems are available in both gas and electric elements and are the most popular units found in Melbourne and the surrounding areas. Once the water is heated and stored in the tank mains pressure is used to push the hot water to the outlet or tap for use.
Gravity Fed Systems
Gravity fed hot water systems use the power of gravity to supply hot water. These systems can be found in your roof or ceiling and heat the water through an electric element. These systems are most commonly found in older style properties and are rarely used for new builds. Because the mechanics of this unit relies on gravity rather than mains pressure residents often find that the water lacks pressure.
If you are experiencing problems with your hot water system or its been 5 or more years since it was last serviced contact the team at Select Plumbing and Gas to have your system reviewed.
