Hot Water Systems
There are predominantly two types of domestic hot-water system:
- Central heating – which is the circulation of water from your boiler to your radiators
- Domestic hot-water – which is the circulation of water from your boiler to your taps
Both systems are similar in components but the water and pipework does not mix; therefore, the differences need to be understood in order for effects, issues, and maintenance to be accurately identified along with certain installation possibilities (such as the type of shower needed).
Hot-water is always stored in a cylinder or a tank and can be heated as follows:
- Immersion – An electric element which screws into the hot-water tank and is wired to the mains electrical supply.
- Direct Boiler System – The boiler will heat the water and return it to the tank above.
- Indirect Boiler System – The cylinder will contain a coil or ‘heat exchanger’ on the pipework run which is heated directly by the boiler.
