Mississauga Plumbers Tell You How to Get Hot Water to Your Faucet Faster
No one likes to wait for hot water to reach the pipes, especially not in the colder months. However, more often than not, you’re lingering in a cold bathroom, waiting for the water to turn hot. It’s even more bothersome if you have to wait for the water to reach the pipes just when you need to wash your dirty hands. This is often the case when your heater is on one side of your home and the bathroom or kitchen on the other side. At John The Plumber, we believe that some strategic planning will help you get the water to your faucet more quickly.
Change the Location of the Heater
It’s a good idea to install your heater in a location that’s closest to the rooms that use water regularly. For example, if your kitchen and the most used bathrooms are on the western side of your home, you should have your heater installed there. This would ensure that the hot water reaches the faucet and the shower sooner. However, this isn’t always possible. In that case, you need to use alternative means to get hot water quickly.
Instant Water Heater
While this might require some investment and a plumber, it’s a great overall solution. An instantaneous water heater is usually installed close to the faucet. In the kitchen, you might install it under the sink. You can install it next to your shower in the bathroom. This heater would give you nearly instant hot water. It offers a lot of energy savings as well. The regular storage tank water heater takes a lot of energy to keep the water hot. An instantaneous water heater would only heat on demand which means you only use it when you need to.
Inspect the Heater
If the heater is taking too long to provide the water, you might want to check if it’s functioning well. You can call in a professional to inspect the water heater, look at the pipes leading the water to your faucets and showers, and check if everything is in order. Fixing problems with the heater might get the water to your taps sooner.
