Everybody uses hot water and as a property owner, you’ll most likely want to get the most out of your hot water system for the longest time possible. No matter if you have electric, gas or solar, the below hot water tips will come in very handy.
1. LISTEN TO YOUR HOT WATER SYSTEM
Literally, if you listen to your hot water system and hear an unusual sound, contact your hot water repairs plumber immediately. Even if you’re not sure if you hear anything out of the ordinary or not, it’s also best to contact your plumber for reassurance or to fix any issues straight away.
2. TURN OFF YOUR HOT WATER HEATER WHEN ON HOLIDAYS
Hot water heaters are designed to heat your water so that’s it’s nice and warm for you at any given moment. However, when you’re on holidays, this ‘hot water on standby’ isn’t necessary. Next time you’re about to leave the house for more than a few days, why not turn off the hot water heater? It’s a great way to extend the life of your system and will even save you money while you’re at it.
3. INSPECT REGULARLY
Hot water systems generate a lot of pressure as the water heats up. While there is a relief valve to ‘relieve’ some of this pressure, it is important to inspect your hot water system regularly so that this relief valve stays in perfect working order and that your hot water system doesn’t overheat. It is also important to ensure the rest of your hot water system is in perfect working order as gas leaks and electricity can be extremely disastrous when unknowingly left damaged.
