How To Maintain Your Hot Water System

Why are hot water systems so difficult to maintain these days? In truth, older machines are harder to maintain because they are getting older. However, the systems that we sell at Galaxy Hot Water are increasingly easier to maintain because they have fantastic build-quality.

  • Turn off Your Tank When You Go Away

If you are going away for a few days, maybe on vacation or to visit friends, you should turn of your hate water system. It gives your heating system a chance to return back to normal and reset. For some reason, giving your heating system a break in this way helps to extend its life. Maybe it is a pressure thing, or maybe it is simply because it is not in use, so it is not deteriorating or depreciating. 

  • Inspect it For Wearing or Cracks

Preventative measures include checking your hot water system for cracks and wear. In most cases, when you find damage, you can address the problem and fix it before it gets worse. There are a minority of times when you will find damage and it means your hot water system is nearing the end of its life, but this is not usually the case.

  • Get Professionals to Check it Yearly 

You are probably already aware that your heating system should be checked every year by a professional. This is especially true if you have a gas heating system. If it is powered by gas, then a heating and gas engineer needs to check the system to see if it is safe, and to see if it is creating carbon monoxide. 

  • Do Not Always Have it on Full Blast

You do not always have to have the system on full. There are plenty of occasions where a moderate heat is fine. The more you put it on full, the more pressure you put on your system and the harder you make it work. Just like with a car, the more pressure you put on it, and the more work you make it do, then the more it deteriorates, which means its life gets shorter. 

  • Be careful with gardening work around your system

If your hot water systems demand a rigorous maintenance routine, then either you are a factory owner, or your system is out of date and/or too large for your house.
