New Installation

When it comes to choosing the best hot water system for your home, try not to be too hasty.

Instead, weigh up the pros and cons of each system, along with your specific requirements, e.g. tank capacity, energy star rating, installation, and running cost.

We have a variety of hot water systems below that we install, what one best suits you?

Electric

An electric hot water system is usually relatively cheap to buy and install. However, it can be expensive to run on a continuous basis.

If your meter is configured to include off-peak rates, it should work out cheaper. The water will be heated overnight, but you will probably need a bigger tank to make your hot water last all day.

Gas

It is generally accepted that gas is an efficient energy source. So, if you have a natural gas connection, that may be a good option. Unlike LP gas, natural gas should never run out while you’re in the shower, and it’s also cheaper than LPG. 2.

You can choose between a gas pilot light and electric ignition option on your hot water system. The pilot light only uses a negligible amount of gas, while the electric ignition is more economical. However, you can lose your hot water supply during a blackout with the electric ignition option.

The size of your holding tank will depend on the size of your household. However, instantaneous systems provide almost instant hot water while saving space - there is not tank, which is great for small apartments.

Gas hot water systems have energy efficiency star ratings, so choose the one with the highest rating that you can afford.

Solar

For a solar hot water system to be efficient, it needs to be installed in the sunniest spot. You may want to consider buying a larger tank for less sunny days or increased hot water use.

Most solar systems are equipped with a gas or electric booster element to maintain heat on less sunny days.

Over time, the low running costs of a well-chosen hot water system should make up for the time-consuming and comparatively expensive installation costs.

A solar hot water system may provide as much as 90% of your hot water needs for free without any greenhouse gas emissions.

Heat Pump

A typical heat pump hot water system is three times more efficient than a conventional electric hot water system that uses electrical resistance heating. This is because rather than using electricity to create heat, they use electricity to move heat around.

Heat pump hot water work in the same way as a fridge does, aside from the fact that they work in completely opposite ways. Fridges pump heat out to keep what’s inside cold, while heat pump hot water pumps haet in to keep what’s inside hot. While these are very efficient, they are quite expensive to buy, install, and repair.

Moral Plumbing advice: if you’re not looking to spend a lot but want a reliable hot water service, go with the (most common) electric system.

Tips Regarding Hot Water Repairs in the Gold Coast

Look for these signs that your hot water system may need repairing.

  • Water leaking from your tank:After years of continuous use, hot water tanks can show signs of deterioration and cause issues that need immediate repair from a professional. These indications include water leaking from the tank, popping noises such as the sound of boiling water or a strange odour around the cylinder.
  • Water discolouration:If you notice a rusty tinge to your water or dark particles flowing from the tap, your water tank may have sedimentation or corrosion. A professional plumber can determine the extent of your issue and provide a solution.
  • Fluctuating water temperatures:Fluctuating water temperatures indicate that you need a repair or, for old systems, you may need to consider a replacement. Mineral deposits are one reason that your water heater can lose heat over time as they build up and cover the heating elements, which prevents them from working efficiently. If this is the case, you can repair or replace the faulty parts without needing a whole new system.

What You Should Know About Low Hot Water Pressure in Shower

Our knowledgeable technicians can remedy your low water pressure to ensure that your shower is enjoyable and satisfying.

  • You may have a blocked showerhead:Hard water can cause a build-up of mineral deposits in your showerhead and disrupt the flow. You can easily unscrew your showerhead and leave it to soak in vinegar before scrubbing away any remaining deposits. This action can improve the water flow through your showerhead. If that doesn’t work, a professional plumber can find the cause of the low pressure.
  • There is an issue with the mains pressure:Issues with your water pressure may be a result of the city doing work on the system or the valve on your water meter on the edge of your property could be partially closed. An experienced plumber can check your main water supply and determine the cause of low water pressure.
  • You have an issue with your pipes:Water pipes can become blocked over time or corrode, which then restricts the water volume flowing to outlets in your home. Damage to pipes that cause leaks will also diminish the flow and result in low shower pressure.

Identifying the cause of your plumbing issue and having it fixed is essential to prevent more extensive damage to your water system.

Benefits of Gas Installation

There are numerous advantages to switching your hot water over to a gas system, and our knowledgeable and trained technicians make the change easy.

  • Fast heating:Gas heaters work faster than electric heaters, and they replenish your hot water supply more quickly. This benefit is ideal for large households who have a high demand for hot water.
  • Lower energy costs:Gas plumbing that uses natural gas or propane is generally more affordable than electricity which can help to reduce your energy bills. While you may have to pay more upon installation, over the long run the operation of gas heating works our more affordable than electric.
  • Easy installation:Installing gas hot water systems are easy, especially if your home already has a gas line, and our highly experienced technicians provide quality service.
