The type of water heater installation you chose will depend on your individual needs and circumstances.
Choosing the capacity of water heater
The size of the water heater best for you will depend on two things. First is the amount of hot water that you require to be on tap. Second, is the type of water heater you choose.
Would you like help in calculating which type of what heater installation will best suit your needs? If yes, we here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating would be only too pleased to offer you advice. We can help you with information about the various flow rates of different devices. This will determine how many boilers you will need to provide you with enough hot water to meet your needs.
Tankless water heaters, for example, are rated on a wide range of inlet temperatures. This varies from living space to living space. We can do the necessary calculations for you and tell which boilers would be appropriate.
With a traditional water heater installation, the calculation is much simpler. It revolves around deciding on the volume of water that has to be collected to satisfy your demands at peak times.
Choosing the type of fuel your boiler will run on
When it comes down to choosing which fuel your boiler should run on, the choice is relatively simple. It mostly depends on whether or not you have a ready supply of electricity or gas. While these two fuels tend to be the mainstays, there are other options such as LPG or solar power.
As a rule of thumb, an electric water heater installation costs less to install than gas. However, it is more expensive to run. On the other hand, If you don’t have a good reliable source of gas or electricity, you might opt for LPG of solar.
Again, we emphasise that if you would like help with making a decision, CW Services Plumbing and Heating can offer you non-obligatory, free professional advice.
