Boost Your Power: Upgrade Your Hot Water!

Come on, admit it, who wants to take a cold shower in the morning when they wake up with a shiver that makes them rush to the shower and turn the water on to find that they get lukewarm water? I must admit, I recently encountered the inconvenience of having to suffer cold showers and that made me search for a new hot water system. In exploring the available types of hot water systems, I found myself delving into the process of choosing the best hot water systems. I was able to enjoy my hot water system and step outside of the idea of a tank-style heater. Here's what I learned:

Understanding My Needs

First, I considered my hot water usage. Do I take long showers, or is it a quick rinse? Does the whole family shower back-to-back, or are we spread out? Knowing my habits helped me narrow down the options.

Exploring the Options

  • Tank vs. Tankless: Conventional water heaters are the space where hot water is stored while tankless heaters produce the heated water immediately. 

  • Fuel Efficiency: There are two different types of energy; Natural and human energy and the sub-types include the following; Electric cars are commonly more expensive to service and repair, but are more eco-friendly when considering the make and model, as well as the selected electricity tariff.

Making the Choice

After considering my needs and budget, I opted for a gas tankless water heater. It fits my space limitations and hot water usage patterns. The installation process was smooth, and now I enjoy endless hot showers – a true power upgrade for my mornings!

The Takeaway

Aging hot water systems come with a lot of complications; leaks, inefficiency, and lukewarm showers are just the beginning. Upgrading can be a point of realisation, but early action saves plumbing costs. By the time my old system started acting up, I was facing potential repairs on top of the upgrade itself. So if you understand your needs and trim down the available choices, you can find the kind of system that can aid you in supplementing your hot water power and of course, having a comfortable home.
