Hot Water Cylinders in Lower Hutt or Wellington | Watersmith Plumbing and Gas
Need your hot water cylinder repaired, upgraded, replaced or relocated in your Lower Hutt home?
Stainless steel electric hot water cylinders are the most common form of water heating in the Wellington area.
Electric hot water cylinders use an electric element in an insulated tank to heat the water to a temperature set by a thermostat.
The running costs of an electric hot water cylinder is quite expensive compared to other water heating options, although they have one of the cheapest upfront costs.
Hot water heating accounts for almost half of your household’s electricity bill, so the cheapest to install is generally not the most cost efficient long term.
If you do have an older cylinder (pre-2002), you should definitely get a plumber to install a special hot water cylinder wrap around it (and the first metre of piping) to prevent heat loss.
By replacing your old low pressure cylinder you will save money on your power bill with improved efficiency and less water usage.
There are many other benefits of using a stainless steel mains pressure hot water cylinder such as; enjoying a marked increase in shower pressure (particularly upstairs), less wait for your shower or bath or taps to heat up, along with a number of new options in terms of picking taps and fittings.
Gas water heating is also a popular solution, especially with instant heat that happens as soon as you turn on the tap.
Do you have a leaking hot water cylinder? Is your hot water cylinder safe? Watersmith can repair or upgrade your existing hot water system, supply and install new hot water cylinders, install gas continuous flow hot water systems, or relocate you existing hot water system.
