Today most people want to get hot water on demand in their homes. Continuous flow hot water systems provide water as you use it through a small wall-mounted device. The advantage of this system over the tank- stored hot water system is that the volume of water in use heats up and the unit switches off as soon as the tap is turned off. There is no waiting time to get hot water, and it is a more energy-efficient system.
Benefits of Hot Water System
We at Mr Splash Plumbing install all types of hot water systems, including continuous flow units. We will provide all the information you need about the different types of systems and what their pros and cons are. If you are looking for an affordable, energy-efficient solution, continuous flow hot water systems are the right choice. There are numerous benefits to these systems, but here we mention the major ones:
1. Hot Water Exactly When You Need It
Hot water when you want is a significant point in favour of continuous flow hot water system. You also get the volume of hot water you want, without worrying whether there is enough hot water or not. You do not have to worry about storing additional hot water or use it sparingly to make hot water available to your family members. A sudden cold shower does not hit you while bathing as in the case of a storage hot water systems.
2. Space-Saving Solution
Hot water storage tanks are bulky and occupy more space. In contrast, continuous hot flow hot water systems are space-saving. They are compact, and neat looking and can fit into small bathroom spaces as well.
3. Low Operational Costs
A lot of energy is wasted when you store water in a tank at a specific temperature for later use. But when hot water is available any time, you eliminate energy waste because you switch the system on when needed and switch it off when not in use.
4. Zoning Options For Temperature Control
You can select the temperatures you like to use for various activities. For example, you can set a higher temperature for the kitchen and laundry areas, and the bathroom temperature can be set lower, based on your needs.
5. Keeps Bacterial Growth At Bay
People are unaware that stored water in a tank breeds bacteria and a disease called Legionnaire. To avoid this, you need to maintain the water temperature at 60 degrees C wasting energy and increasing your energy bills. Tank-less continuous water flow heaters are free of any such problems.
6. Green Certification
Why do most continuous hot water systems have 5 Energy Star ratings and average efficiency of 95%? The simple answer is that these heaters add 75% less to greenhouse emission than a tank hot water system.
