Hot water on demand is one of the many present-day luxuries that we have become accustomed to expect. But it can also become increasingly expensive if not efficiently managed and installed. That’s why every hot water system needs a pipe thermostat. So, what exactly is a pipe thermostat? It is a sophisticated piece of technology that controls the heat supply to the hot water cylinder. This is how it operates: initially the user sets an ideal temperature and connects the device to an electrical outlet. The pipe thermostat then reads the water temperature and turns the switch on or off to maintain the preset value. The ideal temperature range is 60 to 65 degrees centigrade. This heat range will kill off any bacteria in the water and will also be comfortable on the skin. Above all, this temperature range saves energy and also prevents scalding. What is the difference between a pipe thermostat switch and a frost thermostat? Well, we’re glad you asked. These two heating systems work the same way. However, the frost thermostat protects your property from pipe bursts. It turns on the central heating system in order to avoid frosting in the water pipes running throughout the house. A pipe thermostat, on the other hand, is limited to the water heating system alone. That means your house is at risk of flooding even though you have it installed and working correctly. So it would be a good idea to have both devices installed. We currently have the cylinder thermostat Sauter and remote temperature adjuster in stock.
