Electric Hot Water Systems Brisbane
Smart State Plumbing Brisbane regularly involves the repairs and or installation of electric hot water systems or electric hot water service tanks. The most common brands are Rheem hot water and Dux hot however most electric hot water systems work on a similar basis and therefore whatever your hot water requirements our Smart State Plumbing Brisbane service can help you.
As electric hot water service tanks are the least efficient of all hot water systems it is not uncommon for people to ask about upgrading their system to gas hot water or solar hot water systems. It is usually a cheaper option to replace like for like and electric water heaters are no different. To carry out a straight swap over of your hot water service, most of these types of exchanges are done within a couple of hours and with very little fuss.
Hot water systems tend to be used more in the winter months and with the difference in temperatures it is not uncommon for a hot water system to split and leak in the winter months due to greater expansion and contraction of the metal tank. There are a few simple maintenance checks that can be carried out that may avoid this type of problem occurring – *(see our hot water systems maintenance page).
As electric hot water systems are now being phased out due the carbon emissions making them less friendly to our environment *(see our hot water systems maintenance page) available rebates make it more affordable than ever to convert to gas hot water, heat pump hot water or solar hot water. These rebates are not going to be available for ever and customers that have upgraded from electric hot water have been extremely impressed with the efficiency of the more modern 5 star rated water heaters.
Our plumbing Brisbane service can repair or replace depending on the task at hand and hot water systems are no different. You can typically expect 10 years from a hot water service / system but with regular maintenance you should get 15 + years. If you have not had your hot water tank inspected within the past 12 months you can call your local Smart State Plumbing Brisbane technician to check out any hot water problems and any general plumbing problems with the safe knowledge that you will be given an honest and experienced professional plumbing opinion to solve your hot water needs.
