Other problems can result from sediment built up in the tank. When liquids enter the tank for heating, dissolved minerals and other bits of sand or debris can be washed in settling at the bottom of the tank. Because many heater burners are positioned at the bottom of the tank, the build-up of debris results in ineffective warming, leaving unsatisfactory lukewarm temperatures. This indicates reasons why every so often, heating systems need to be regularly maintained and flushed annually. Technical diagnosis can also determine faulty points in the mechanism such as problem with the thermal switch, thermostat or heating element.

When colder liquids are introduced into the heating tank, a dip tube is used to regulate the flow. Cooler liquid is sent to the bottom of the tank for heating and circulation. A broken dip tube will allow cooler fluids to reside at the top of tanks, displacing the hot liquid and promoting a dip in the overall temperature.

Choosing an efficient hot water cylinder in Wellington is an important decision because these units draw large amounts of electrical consumption. Considering all the home electrical appliances you are likely to use; hot water cylinders will draw some of the most power from the grid with regular home use.
