Overheating Hot Water Cylinders

Hot water cylinders are usually located in an airing cupboard and are normally safe, efficient devices for providing hot water. However, on rare occasions, the thermostat can fail, meaning that the cylinder is being heated un-necessarily. This means that the water can be too hot, but it also means that you are paying un-necessarily for this. Therefore, please let Smith & Byford know, if you notice the following warning signs: 

  • The hot water coming out of the hot taps is suddenly much hotter than it normally is;
  • There is hot water coming out of the cold tap. (If you have a mixer tap, then you can’t get any cold water out of it);
  • You can hear bubbling noises or unusually loud noises coming from the hot water cylinder or airing cupboard.

Call Smith & Byford on 020 8643 1080.
