If your hot water is playing up, or your family’s lifestyle has outgrown your older solution that keeps leaving you with cold showers, race into the new hyper-efficient era in hot water with instantaneous gas hot water.
Here at Ezy-Plumb, we can have you up and running with a sleek, slick, highly efficient and affordable instant hot water system in a matter of hours.
Did you know that hot water accounts for some 30% of your home electricity bill? That’s a lot of money, and a great reason to consider asking the friendly Melbourne hot water plumbers at Ezy-Plumb about a brand new, energy-efficient hot water system that suits your budget, lifestyle and home.
In any technological realm, progress has been racing ahead in the past several years. But that leap has been astronomical with hot water compared to legacy systems. There are fewer moving parts, better and easier operation, incredibly compact packaging, greater durability, and energy efficiency – and the list goes on.
Are you ready to take a second look at instantaneous gas hot water systems? The way they work may be the clincher because it couldn’t be simpler. Rather than a conventional electric storage hot water system, where the entire capacity is heated and then stored and kept hot, your instantaneous gas hot water heater only springs into life when you turn on the tap. The gas burner then fires up the heat exchanger, and the cold water is turned into safe, clean, healthy, fresh, and steaming hot water for your family.
The computer component keeps tabs on the flow of energy and water and the various features, including error monitoring, temperature control, and advanced safety features like gas cut-off and flame regulation. With the electric version, it’s the electric element doing the heating as opposed to a gas burner.
While traditional storage or ‘tank’ systems used to dominate the market, the space-saving, never-run-out-of-water abilities of gas instantaneous hot water are fast becoming the hot pick all across Melbourne and beyond. Massively popular in its natural gas and LPG versions, but also available to those only with electric power available, the list of benefits of instant hot water systems is long and impressive:

Do you have a question about your hot water system? We might have answered it already:
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 $1,000 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.
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.
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.

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.
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.

Have used them twice now. Would again. Excellent friendly service. Took my call on first try, booked appointment, arrived on time with clear communication. Upfront quote upon inspection of works needed and completed the work quickly and no fuss. Thanks!
Left a message on a Sunday, was contacted back the same day and an appointment made for next day. They arrived exactly on time prepared a quote on the spot and although much more expensive than I anticipated, I approved the works.
Petris was great. Quote was below others, he adjusted timing based on our needs, we got an sms heads up when he was coming, he put on some doctors like slippers to avoid dirtying our floors and then did the job quickly. Highly recommended.
Made an emergency call for badly leaking under basin hose. Petros sounded friendly and efficient even on the phone. He was at our house in no time at all, identified what he needed to do, drew up a quote for us to sign and then got on with the job.
