Next time a customer asks you to find them the perfect hot water system, don’t just replace the system ‘like for like’, consider all the options.
Electric storage water heaters are an easy solution and Tradelink stock a range of sizes to suit most customers’ needs. They’re a relatively cheap system to install and run.
Does the house have a gas connection? Gas storage water heaters can be more cost effective in the long term. So, if they’ve got gas, recommend a gas storage water heater and save them some cash.
Continuous flow water heaters are another practical option for customers connected to gas. These systems are compact and wall mounted, making them great space savers, and they’re good for the environment. A plus for your eco-conscious (aka tree hugging) customers!
Tradelink even stock continuous flow water heaters that let you control the water temperature remotely with the press of a button, offering added safety and peace of mind, particularly for families with small children or elderly relatives.
Solar hot water systems are another capable and enviro-friendly option. Evacuated solar systems use tube technology to capture more energy from the sun. This energy turns cold water that enters the tubes into hot water and stores it for later. They’re lightweight, easy to install and need very little maintenance. And, the good news is you don’t have to install a complete system up front. You can simply replace an existing electric storage unit with a solar ready tank and add the evacuated tubes later!
Or, why not consider a hot water heat pump? Heat pumps take heat from the ambient air to heat water – they don’t need sunshine or large roof panels. They efficiently produce hot water day or night, rain, hail or shine.
