How To Know If Your Hot Water Cylinder Is Big Enough

Book a COVID-safe appointment with us.

How To Know If Your Hot Water Cylinder Is Big Enough

Knowing whether or not your water cylinder is the right size can be tricky.

If the cylinder is the correct size for the usage of the household, it shouldn’t run out of hot water. However, there can be some cases where this can occur. In this blog we are going to discuss how to know if your cylinder is big enough. 

The Two Main Types Of Cylinders

The water within a direct cylinder uses an immersion heater within the cylinder to heat up the water. An indirect water cylinder relies on an external appliance like a boiler to generate the hot water. Sometimes indirect cylinders do have immersion heaters installed as a backup or boost function. 

The Right Size

When choosing a water cylinder, it can be difficult as you need one large enough so that your demands are being met. If you purchase one which is too large this can be a waste as the tank will heat up the water that is not being used and this will waste a lot of energy. A cylinder that is too small will not meet the demands of you home and could leave you having a few colder showers. The capacity of your cylinder will depend on how it is being heated, indirectly or directly. The cylinder capacity will always be measured in litres.

How To Work Out The Correct Size For You

From looking at the numbers of bedrooms, bathrooms and showers you have you will be able to figure out how many litres you need. For every occupant in the house you should allow between 35-50 litres.

  • Low consumption- 20-30 litres
  • Average consumption- 30-50 litres
  • High consumption- 50-70 litres

On average a household would use around 200 litres of hot water a day. A bath uses on average 100 litres of hot water. A shower will vary between 18 and 22 litres.

If you are looking for a new water cylinder, Harvey Heating are on hand to help.

Why Your Boiler Needs Servicing

Book a COVID-safe appointment with us.

Why Your Boiler Needs Servicing

Servicing your boiler on a regular basis is important for both safety and efficiency.

Homeowners, landlords and tenants all need to take care of their boiler to ensure that there are no dangers to anyone within the household. In this blog we are going to discuss the importance of keeping your boiler working safely by having it serviced regularly.

Safety

Having your boiler serviced every year will ensure that fuel is being combusted safely and efficiently, this will minimize any risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, this can become a real danger to any household with a fuel burning appliance within the home. When a gas becomes toxic, you don’t always know that you are being poisoned as it is generally odourless and tasteless.

Cost Efficient

Keeping on top of servicing will save you money in the long run. Having it done often will allow you to see if there are any problems and they can be fixed as soon as they have been detected. The cost of maintaining the boiler will be massively less than the cost of replacing appliances.

Why You Should Have Your Boiler Serviced Now

Having your boiler serviced now will allow you to be one step ahead of everyone else when the weather gets colder. If you get it done sooner rather than later, you will be less likely to experience a breakdown and you can ensure that you will have hot water and heating when you need it.

Here at Harvey Heating we are available to service your boiler when you need us to.

Why It’s So Important For You To Get Your Caravan Serviced

Why It’s So Important For You To Get Your Caravan Serviced

If you are the owner of a caravan, it is so important that you pay it the correct attention all year round.

This should include regular servicing from heating, gas and plumbing experts such as ourselves. Another important thing to remember is the Winterising and Summerising of your caravan or mobile home. Winterising especially will prevent a heavy frost that would cost you hundreds of pounds.
