Defuse The Time Bomb Of A Damage Hot Water System

Depending on the type of system and the severity of the damage, a hot water fault can represent a very serious threat to you and your family. The most important thing to remember is to never attempt to repair your hot water unit yourself. They are connected to either the gas or electricity mains in addition to being massive reservoirs of scalding hot water. Our technicians have trained for years to ensure they are properly qualified to handle these dangerous repairs or even complete hot water system replacements. Take advantage of their dedication at any time, 24 hours a day; call our emergency line and we will be on our way to your Bentleigh or Moorabbin property. That’s our promise to you.

Calling On The Experts Will Save You Money

Some homeowners, faced with expensive hot water repairs, might be tempted to skimp out on our premium brand of service and hire a less credible repair company. But by doing something like this you’re actually short-changing yourself in the long run; heater units are meant to last a long time, and the life of your cut-price repair is unlikely to run the remaining life of the unit. That means that before long you’ll be paying again for another repair, or sometimes a whole new heating system. And that’s not even considering the risks of dodgy, unqualified service and the loss of efficiency that inexperienced technicians can bring.

Ezy-Plumb is qualified to install and replace both gas hot water systems and electric hot water systems. So whether your beloved hot water system has finally given up, or if you just want to install a brand-new system, we have the know-how to properly install it for you. Having professionals install your hot water system is an investment that will save you money for years to come, whether you are located in Melbourne, from Bentleigh-East to Sandringham.

How much does it cost to replace a hot water system?

How long is a piece of string? That's a similar question to 'how much is a hot water system' - simply because the market is technologically diverse and highly competitive. A simple storage tank replacement will start from $1000 installed depending on the size, but if you're replacing a gas hot water system the unit will be more expensive. A solar system is several thousand dollars but you may get rebates.

What is the most efficient hot water system?

Electric systems are getting more efficient all the time, and gas is slightly more efficient than traditionally powered units. However, the most efficient hot water systems of all are innovative fridge-in-reverse heat pumps or a solar setup that uses free energy from the sun to heat your bath or shower.

What are the different types of hot water systems?

In Australia, we could hardly be more spoiled for choice when it comes to types of hot water systems. There are ultra-efficient modern electric units. Happy with your tankless system or looking to upgrade to space and power-saving instantaneous technology? Both are available in gas, too, but consider stepping it up a notch with 'green' heat pumps and solar systems.

Get in touch for advice on the best type of hot water system for your home or business.

What is the cheapest form of hot water?

If the lowest possible ticket price is what you're looking for, electric tank-based systems still win the day. But gas options are not far behind and they're slightly cheaper to run, whilst a heat pump or solar setup will eventually work out the cheapest with those super-low running costs.

How long should a hot water tank last?

While hot water system lifespan and warranties are typically around the 6-10 year range, you'd be quite unlucky to have to replace your new system before then. Instantaneous units, however, should be expected to last up to 20 years, while gas and instantaneous systems typically have longer lives than standard electric tanks.

CUSTOMER STORY: When A Hot Water System Bursts!

It’s hard sometimes to not really feel for some plumbing clients. Just last month, our sympathies were turned up to the max when we were called out for plumbing in Caulfield, paying a visit to Tim and his wife Sarah’s place in – a beautiful home they share with their 4 kids.

Tim and his family had actually recently headed off on a 2-week holiday. When they got back, they couldn’t believe what they found – a flood that would even have made Noah go “W’oh!”

The culprit? A 20-year-old electric tank storage hot water system that hadn’t just give up the ghost … the tank had actually burst open under pressure, leaking like a fountain. In most cases, hot water systems of this grand size – suitable for 6 people! – are situated outside, so that when they burst, it’s not your carpets, rugs, furniture and absolutely everything else that is subjected to a 400-litre tsunami. In Tim and Sarah’s case, the system was located in a little room near the back sliding door, so that when the hot water tank started leaking, 400 litres flowed like a river … all over the darn place!

With these really old systems, tanks split under pressure more often than you might think. In Tim and Sarah’s case, it was a catastrophic build-up of minerals in a pressure relief valve exiting the tank, so that once it was hopelessly blocked, the pressure just started to build every time the system went into another heating cycle while the family was on holiday.

We replaced the old system with an instantaneous gas unit mounted on an outside wall. The happy couple could now have a hot shower and relax after their trip. On our way out Sarah thanked us for taking away the bulky old unit, which as a bonus freed up new storage space!

If your system is more than about 9-10 years old and you’ve noticed it’s not running quite as well as it used to, take Tim & Sarah’s advice … and get it professionally checked.
