Whether you’re looking to replace an old hot water system, or you need something bigger as your family is growing, ACE+ has the expertise to help you find and install one that is perfect for your needs.

What is a hot water system?

The hot water system provides hot water through the plumbing in your household. These units, usually found outside, heat and store water for your use. Put simply, when you turn on a hot water tap in your house it is the hot water system that provides the hot water.

What should I consider when getting a new hot water system?

If you’ve decided to replace or upgrade your hot water system, there are a few things you should consider when choosing the new one.

  1. What capacity is this new system?

The capacity of a hot water system refers to the amount of water, in litres, it heats and stores for use in the house. A larger system, in litres, will provide more hot water for the house but may cost more in terms of energy used to heat the water. The capacity of the new system should, ideally, match the size of your property. If you have a one bedroom household, you probably don’t need the largest hot water system available. Our team will be able to advise you on the best capacity for your property.

  1. What type of hot water system do you want?

There are a few different options when it comes to picking a new hot water system. The most common are:

  • Electric
  • Gas
  • Solar

Each has its advantages and disadvantages and it comes down to your preference. Solar, for example, will cost the least over time but will have the highest installation and purchasing cost. The plumbers at ACE+ will be able to give you their advice on what will best suit your property.

Why do I need a plumber to install my hot water system?

The simple answer to this question is that you don’t need a plumber to install your hot water system but you run the risk of damaging or destroying the system and placing your property at risk.

Hot water systems are complex pieces of machinery because of the way that they interface with your property’s existing plumbing structure. By choosing a DIY approach, you run the risk of damaging this structure and the damage not being covered by your insurance.

By choosing a licensed company like ACE+, you get the guarantee that your hot water system will be installed by professionals. We only ever send licensed professionals who know the relevant safety standards when installing your hot water system.
