A Thermostatic Mixing Valve (TMV) is a valve that blends hot and cold water to ensure safe shower and bath outlet temperatures. With this, you can avoid burning yourself with scalding hot water. Your TMV valves need to be repaired by a licensed professional. Selected Heating and Cooling has a team of accredited and insured plumbers who are trained to handle any job. We can provide you with repairs and servicing of your TMV valves.
Why Is TMV Important?
A standard TMV valve is set to deliver water at a temperature of 45°C. However, in some cases such as child-care facilities, the water temperature is delivered at a reduced rate of approximately 38°-40°C.
Tempering valves are usually used for hot water systems to ensure the water temperature is controlled. Moreover, a TMV valve ensures that water can be stored within the storage tanks at very high temperatures.
These valves are an important part of hot water systems for they prevent from causing you any harm as well as protect your hot water systems. Storing water at extremely high temperatures can also help in preventing diseases which arise with stored, stagnant water.
