Hot water is something that a lot of us take for granted. Your gas hot water system could be on the blink if you have noticed water leaks near the device or if you are not getting any hot water. Calling in the professionals would be the best way to resolve the problem but first, it wouldn’t hurt to inspect the system yourself. By doing so, you can determine whether or not the issue is serious or if it can be dealt with swiftly. Not sure where to find your gas hot water system? Let this article inform you about where most hot water system types are located in the home.
Gas and Heat Pump Systems
Similar to refrigerators in the way they work due to the fact that heat is extracted and then pumped out into the atmosphere, these hot water systems will usually be found positioned near a wall. They won’t be positioned too close to the wall though because if space is limited, how is the gas or heat pump system able to effectively work? Make sure that there are no furnishings or obstructions preventing the system in your home from doing it’s job and be sure to give it a clean every so often. Components can become clogged with dust, which can affect performance and energy usage.
Mains Pressure Storage Heaters
If you have a mains pressure storage heater fitted inside the home, you will likely find it inside.However, these water heater systems can also be found outside if the floor surface is at an even level. Water can be saved with these appliances, which tend to be the most cost-effective option. One of the main downsides associated with mains pressure storage heaters is that they tend to take up a lot of space and if they are fitted inside a cupboard, you won’t have as much storage space to take advantage of. However, if space is not an issue for you, go for it!
Continuous Flow Water Heaters
Compact in size, continuous flow water heaters do not run out of water, ever. The most convenient thing about continuous flow water heaters is that they can be fitted in the bathroom, laundry room, kitchen or wherever you (and the installation experts) deem fit. If you are considering getting a system of this kind installed, be prepared to pay a little more for installation, because power points might have to be connected by the person fitting the appliance and as you can imagine, this can be quite time consuming.
