Types of electric hot water heaters
As water heaters are typically out of sight they are usually out of mind, and without ongoing maintenance they can corrode and become unusable. However, this article will take you through the steps of an electric hot water heater installation, so you know what will happen if you need a new electric hot water heater. Depending on the type of water heater, specialist installation may be required, but we here at EasyFlow will install a new electric hot water heater promptly while ensuring that all regulations are adhered to. You can even change from a gravitational system, where cold water is delivered from a tank, usually in the attic, to a system that just uses the mains water supply. Using the mains water supply means a more pressure and a more powerful flow of water. Choose either a vented system where they do not need an annual service and building control does not need to be notified, or an unvented system where the tank is sealed and is less likely to corrode.
Precautions we take
When EasyFlow is called out for an electric hot water heater installation, we will make sure there is enough room for a bigger or smaller water heater, depending on what is required. Connecting pipework will be measured and valves will be placed correctly. Depending on the water heater, our fully qualified and trusted engineers will use a dolly or sack truck to move water heaters in and out of the property. If changing from a gravitational system to a mains pressure system, components like shower cartridges will need replacing to handle the extra pressure.
Removing the old or broken water heater
The EasyFlow engineer will ensure the mains water supply is turned off along with the electrical supply to the water heater to minimise the risk of damage. Following this the engineer will drain the hot water tank by connecting a hose to the drain valve and directing the water into a bath or sink. To make sure sediment in the cylinder does not block the hose the drain valve will be opened slowly. Once fully drained the hot water, cold water and electrical supply to the water heater will be disconnected. The connecting pipework will be disconnected at the shut off valve and the water heater union with the appropriate tools. Now the water heater can be removed, and its storage space cleaned.
Installing the new water heater
Our engineers will line up the water heater up with previous connections and adjust the water heater until it is standing upright and level. Specific types of joint compounds will be used dependent on the type of fitting used to seal connections and prevent corrosion, specifically galvanic corrosion which is the corrosion of a metal because of electrical contact with another metal, like copper pipework or a steel cylinder. Furthermore, essential valves like the temperature and pressure relief valve, and other components like a single check valve, will be fitted according to the manufacturer’s specifications.
After we’re finished
After the system is sealed, drain valves closed and checked that it is not leaking, the electrical and water supply will be connected to the new system. The water heater will be filled with cold water, the desired temperature will be set, following these steps, the water heater can be turned on. Shortly after your home will be supplied with a hot, powerful and constant stream of water. The temperature of the water heater system may need to be adjusted due to new electric hot water heater installation. If possible the engineer will branch the cold and hot water off at the same time to ensure a balanced amount of pressure from both temperatures. Our qualified engineers will leave you with relevant paperwork and manufacturer’s details and any additional information to keep your hot water flowing.
