Hot water has become a modern day household necessity in recent times. We can find most of the houses reaping the benefits of hot water facilities. Heating of water is a process in which there is a transfer of heat to the water above its initial temperature done by an external energy source. We can often find extreme temperature conditions in several places and never in your wildest dream can you think about using cold water in such conditions. But to get rid of such conditions, having hot water installation at home is considered a good idea.

Essential Things to Consider while Opting for Hot Water Installation:

There are some aspects that are best to keep in mind before the hot water installation in your house. These tips will help you in saving money as well as energy. Conservation of energy should always be kept in mind in order to cut additional costs. Some tips for hot water installation   are listed below:

  • Consider the requirement: For hot water installation, the system that needs to be chosen should meet up with the needs and the situation of the family. Also, it is important to select the system keeping in mind about the weather conditions of the locality you are residing in, size of the family and the roof in the house.  It is good to consult with a hot water specialist to understand the need for the hot water service before the hot water installation. In order to reduce the use of gas consumption, instead of choosing continuous pilot light it is better to choose electronic ignition.
  • A distance of the outlet system: At the time of hot water installation, we should always ensure that the system is situated near the outlet system of water like that of kitchen, bathroom or laundry. This will ensure that the lengths of the pipes that are connected are short and the possibility of heat loss is also minimal. Insulating the pipes with closed cell rubber will help in the reduction of heat loss.  You should always opt for the best hot water installation expert to ensure that installation is done without any interruption. If you are unsure about the plumbers installing the hot water system, you can clear your doubts by asking them for the certificate of compliance.
  • Opt for a registered electrical contractor: It is also important to ensure that all the electrical works for the hot water installation are done by an electrical contractor who is registered for their job. You should never do electrical stuff on your own as there is a lot of risks involved in this task. Moreover, there is always a threat of the hot water system exploding. At the time of the installation of hot water, the person installing should check that everything is done properly so that the system prevails without any problems.
  • Frost protection: Nowadays, for the installation of hot water, there is the availability of a solar hot water system. This will help one in using solar energy which is very important and help you in saving gas consumption. While installation of hot water, if one is opting for the solar hot water system then it is required to ensure that the system includes frost protection. To understand if the system has frost protection it is important to go through the warranty details carefully. Make sure to go through the instructions carefully.
  • Consider the angle of the solar hot water system: The solar hot water system also needs to have an angle between 15° to 50° tilt and it should be oriented as close to the north as possible. It should be kept in mind that the solar panels are not situated under trees or shady areas so that the panels do not get damaged from the branches of the trees. In order to reduce the length of the connecting pipes the storage tank and the collector should we keep at a minimum possible distance?

Therefore, let us just accept that the installation of hot water is a very important work and should be done very carefully under the supervision of a certified plumber. Certain measures should be taken at the time of the hot water installation. Also, it is important for the person to know how the system works and the measures that need to be taken for the system to prevail longer.
