Gas Emergency Hot Water Repair
Instantaneous gas hot water heaters can have an issue with the pilot light going out, ignition spark no longer working or the sensor in the thermocouple is dead. As you must be aware, all instantaneous gas hot water heaters need to be regularly serviced to operate at the highest safety level at all times. Your gas heating systems must be serviced at least once every two years by licensed and qualified technicians.
A maintenance check before the winter months where we all use a little more gas for hot water heating will ensure your family receives the constant hot water supply they seek.
Solar Emergency Hot Water Repair
There are two kinds of solar water heating systems. One is a closed-loop system used for heating spaces and the more common is a split system to heat water for domestic use in the bathroom for showering and the kitchen for washing dishes and cooking. Both systems use pumps to circulate the heated water. The most common solar water heater is an integrated tank model. This consists of both solar panels and a booster either electric or gas heat pump. If the pump breaks then the entire solar heating system doesn’t work anymore and the hot water stops moving. Hot water heat pumps can wear out, the temperature sensor wire can malfunction or expansion tank can start to corrode over time and will need replacing because the hotter the water they pump, the more frequent and the faster the usage will be and it may wear out. Some pumps contain removable cartridges while others need to be completely replaced when they malfunction.
Heat Pump Emergency Hot Water Repair
Heat Pumps are the energy saving alternative to solar hot water. By combining an air filter with a device that transfers heat from a colder area to a hotter area by using mechanical energy, as in a refrigerator saves on energy consumption. All heat pumps have a hot water storage tank which can also be boosted by an electric connection. As a new alternative to energy savings, heat pumps are quiet and long lasting.
Heat pump failures are often caused by faulty thermostat malfunctions. For emergency hot water repairs be sure to check the thermostat has the correct temperature set. Also be careful of loose wires and check the heat pump is receiving power.
