Is it surprising that a significant number of the juvenile patients that present to hospitals with burns/scalds are caused by contact with hot water from a tap in the home?
First and foremost, we should state that thermostatic mixing valve installation and maintenance is mandatory on all new main pressure hot water units.
What is it you ask? A thermostatic mixing valve is a valve that is installed with the aim to prevent burns from hot water. The valve controls the temperature of your water supply and can prevent it from going over a certain temperature (usually around 50 degrees).
Picture this, your child is in the bath, and they turn the hot water tap on thinking it’s the cold. It happens more often than you think and a thermostatic mixing valve could be the difference between a small burn and a trip to the emergency room.
Lexicon offers both thermostatic mixing valve installation and repairs.
