Locating your hot water system in the right place

In many businesses, the hot water system is located too far away from where the water gets used. This has two disadvantages:

  • you waste water waiting for the hot water to arrive
  • excessive pipe length can lead to loss of water heat in the pipe system

 

Choosing the right location 

Origin Energy advises that hot water systems should be installed close to kitchen and bathroom facilities or utilities that require regular hot water. This ensures that taps do not have to run too much cold water before the hot water comes through.

 

For this reason, pipe runs should be kept as short as possible in order to minimise hot water heat loss.[1]
