The plain fact is, that a significant amount of our time is dealing with electric and gas water heaters. The minute that a water heater goes out and the family has to tolerate cold showers, the faster you should contact us to get your plumbing service company to your house.
When you call plumbing companies to your home to look at your hot water service, often people have a choice. They can have a hot water service plumber repair their old electric or gas water heater, or they can get a newer, more efficient model of water heater.
Our water heater replacements are part of our residential plumbing services, you can see more information here about water tanks and heaters.
In most cases, depending upon parts needed as well, hot water repairs to a water heater will such as Rinnai hot water repairs Sydney, run between $150 and $200 depending on the model.
However, our plumber Penrith & hot water technicians find that at repair time, that is often a good time for homeowners to consider upgrading to a newer water heater, whether, gas, electric, or even solar.
In many cases, residential plumbing repair for an older water heater may not be the best option, particularly when the Australian government offers generous tax rebates of $600 to $1200 to buy energy-efficient water heaters.
Assuming a homeowner does not retrofit their system, (ie, move from electric to natural gas) a new water heater will typically run around $1,000 to $1200, while a gas-operated water heater maybe a few hundred dollars more to install.
However, a typical Australian home may use up to $900 worth of electricity per year to heat their water, while a gas water heater may cost under $500 a year to heat.
Whilst your plumber hot water system should last 15 years, many people realise that their hot water system is now inadequate.
Chances are the water heater came with the house, and may have been adequate for two people, but now that two children have been added to the family, the water needs may indeed be inadequate.
Our Penrith plumbing & hot water specialists will be more than happy to discuss the pros and cons of fixing your old water heater versus the economics of buying a new one.
A new hot water system is a big investment, and there are a lot of important facets to consider.
One of the biggest considerations is whether to switch from an electrical system to a natural gas system.
To do so you’ll need a gas plumber Penrith to do the work and converting to gas is not a do it yourself job.
Switching to local gas Penrith requires the skill of an absolute professional. After all, if you don’t hire a local gas Penrith professional, you run the very real risk of having a house gas explosion.
But regardless of whether you do have a gas system or an electrical system, water heaters can be dangerous and you certainly want them installed by a pro.
And never block the Temperature Control Regulator on a water heater.
