Assessing Your Needs

We begin by analyzing your specific requirements, like water usage, space, and energy efficiency goals.

This allows us to pinpoint the right size and type of hot water tank that will serve your needs effectively.

Choosing the Right Hot Water Tank

Selecting the appropriate brand and model is next.

We consider factors such as the tank’s capacity, the energy efficiency rating, and if it should be a traditional tank with an immersion heater or a more modern type.

Our expertise ensures you get a unit best suited to your home’s demands.

Preparing for Installation

Prior to installation, our specialists prepare by laying down protection for your home, assessing the installation site, and ensuring that we have all the necessary tools and components.

Any required pipework modifications or adjustments to the existing wiring are identified in this phase.

Performing the Installation

Our plumbers and engineers handle the heavy lifting during the installation, from positioning the tank to meticulously fitting the pipework, valves, strainer, and expansion vessel.

We’ll ensure every connection is secure and sealed to prevent leaks.

Final Checks and Commissioning

After installing the hot water tank, we carry out thorough inspections and system checks.

This includes testing the pressure, troubleshooting any initial issues, and verifying that the system operates at peak efficiency.

Safety and Regulations Compliance

Our team is adept at navigating the UK’s stringent safety and building codes.

Throughout the process, we make sure that all work adheres to these standards, including the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations.

Post-Installation Cleanup

Once the installation is complete, we don’t leave you with a mess.

Our crew will clean the area, dispose of any debris, and repair any holes or damage caused during the process.

Handover to Client

To conclude, we hand over the system to you with detailed instructions on operation and maintenance.

Our handover ensures that you’re knowledgeable about the new system and confident in managing it efficiently.

At Ashford Heating and Plumbing, we understand that you might have a number of questions regarding costs, installation time, and maintenance. We’re here to provide clarity.

What is the typical cost for installing a hot water tank?

The cost of installing a hot water tank can vary considerably based on the size and type of tank you choose, as well as any additional work required for installation.

You can expect the price to generally range from £500 to £1,000, but for an accurate quotation tailored to your specifications, reach out to us directly.

How long does the installation process of a hot water tank usually take?

The installation of a standard hot water tank typically takes between one to two days.

However, this can extend if modifications to your plumbing system are needed or if you opt for a more complex system like an unvented cylinder.

What are the running costs associated with operating a hot water tank?

Running costs of a hot water tank depend on the tank’s efficiency and how it’s heated, whether by gas, electricity, or solar power.

Generally, gas is a cost-effective and widely used method, but we can provide detailed running cost comparisons during our consultation.

Who is qualified to install an electric water heater?

In the UK, only technicians who are G3 qualified should install unvented hot water cylinders.

Our team at Ashford Heating and Plumbing has in-depth experience and holds the necessary certifications to safely carry out the installation and maintenance of your electric water heater.

What should be considered when choosing a hot water tank installation service?

When selecting a service for hot water tank installation, consider the company’s reputation, technician qualifications, and the level of aftercare service offered.

We pride ourselves on providing comprehensive cover and ongoing support to ensure your hot water system runs smoothly.

How often should a hot water tank be replaced or serviced for optimal performance?

To maintain efficiency and safety, we recommend that hot water tanks be serviced annually. A well-maintained tank can last 10 to 15 years before needing replacement, depending on the make and usage. Our service plans are designed to keep your tank in peak condition.
