Hot Water for Home or Business.
Hot Water is Often Taken for Granted!
It’s easy to forget how dependant we are on hot water. It’s an essential part of our daily lives. When designing a hot water system a full survey is required to ensure the right amount of hot water is available, at the right time. It’s critical to understand the recovery time and capacity of your hot water system to avoid embarrassing moments especially when family or friends are staying.
It’s just as important to use well insulated hot water cylinders with well insulated pipe work to minimise the heat lost. The use of smart controls to monitor the amount of time the system spends re-heating hot water are a huge benefit and help when making adjustments to ensure the correct energy balance is achieved.
Saving energy and reducing running costs
Hot water systems are often neglected and in many instances poorly designed and installed. It's possible to reduce running costs by using solar thermal, solar PV or when combined with an efficient gas boiler or heat pump. It's also worth considering if it's possible to reduce the time a secondary return pump running.
