The size of your hot water system is dependent on how much water you and your family use. You will also need to identify how ‘on demand’ your system needs to be.  

System Size  

Once you have worked out your usage you also need to identify what size system you would like. The dimensions of the area that you are hoping to install your system into is important to have for your plumber.  


The placement of your hot water system is also important to consider. The further away your hot water system is from your shower and taps, the harder it is to transport the water. A location further away may require you to install new taps and may increase energy usage. Therefore, this will impact the cost of installation.  

Insulated Pipes  

Ensure that your pipes are well insulated using high-quality materials. If you don’t use high-quality materials, you run the risk of wasting energy and money trying to heat your water. Insulation is key!
