Selecting the Best Water Heating System for Your Needs
Whilst there are many water heater options, selecting the most economical technology and capacity for your needs can be a confusing task as it depends on your property’s roof space, off-peak electricity tariffs, and access to natural gas. Often a Heat Pump can be a great alternative if you choose not to have solar panels on the roof but still want to achieve the same efficiency as a Solar Hot Water System. We can also install thermostatic mixing valves that will ensure the safe delivery of hot water.
Mains Pressure Hot Water
Mains pressure systems heat then store hot water so that it’s ready as soon as you need it at full mains pressure to baths, basins, and showers, plus washing machines and dishwashers all at the same time.
Continuous Flow Hot Water
Continuous Flow (coil or instantaneous) water heaters cannot deliver mains pressure because their hot water flow is restricted to allow for increasing the water’s temperature as it passes through the system. If you have no natural gas then Heat Pumps are often the most efficient replacement for an obsolete old electric water heater

Hot Water Plumbing Sydney - FAQs
There are two main types of water heaters: standard tank water heaters and tankless systems. A tankless water heater, also known as an on-demand water heater heats up water as you need it, and it brings hot water to your appliances quickly—and never runs out. They are much smaller and less obtrusive than conventional water heaters but they also offer a limited flow of hot water per minute. Standard water heaters use a heating element to reheat your water in a large tank every time you turn the tap on.
On average, hot water heaters can last from 10 to 15 years. If your water heater is more than 10 years old, leaks around the base of the tank or if it works erratically, it's probably time for a replacement.
Signs that it may be time to install a new water heater include strange noises or smells coming from your system or appearing in your water, uneven water temperature or flow, and increasing energy bills.
Regular maintenance is the key to a water heater's lifespan but there are other things you can consider to keep your water heater functioning longer. You can add an expansion tank, check the anode rode, test the temperature relief valve, inspect gas lines, and perform routine maintenance.
Installing a water heater is not an easy task, It can be tricky and potentially harmful if they’re not executed properly. so it’s better to leave it to licensed & professional plumbers. Our Sydney plumber will come and show you your hot water heater repair, replacement, or installation options.
