Tank Hot Water Systems

Tank Hot Water Systems are also known as Water Heaters and Hot Water Cylinders. They are very popular in Melbourne & Geelong and budget friendly to install.

Hot Water Tank Systems are currently the most common type of Hot Water System in Australia.

It utilises a cylinder which heats and stores water at a set temperature, which is maintained day and night, ready for use.

They come in different sizes, depending on how many bathrooms are in your house and how many people live there.

If you have access to Natural Gas at your property, Gas Tank Hot Water systems are cheaper to run compared to Electric Tank Hot Water systems, unless you have solar panels installed which are able to offset your running costs.

Gas Hot Water Tank Systems are cost effective to install and replace.

The modern 5 star energy rated models are energy efficient to run, which makes them a popular water heating choice.

Electric hot water tank systems are generally more expensive to run than ones which run on Natural Gas, especially if you don’t have access to off-peak electricity tariffs.

However, they are a good option if you don’t have access to Natural Gas at your property.

Or if you have solar panels installed and generate excess energy during the day, then this could be the right solution for you.

Signs your hot water system is requiring a Plumber:

  • Water Leaking from or around the hot water system
  • No hot water
  • Bad or very little water pressure
  • Fluctuating hot & cold water

If your Hot Water System is having issues, it will need to be assessed by a qualified Plumber.

Once it has been assessed, we will be able to provide you with options.

If you need hot water repairs, we can advised on the cost to repair it. As new hot water tanks are relatively affordable, your plumber can also provide a repair vs replace quote so you can make an informed decision.

Factors to consider when decided whether to repair or replace include:

  • Your budget
  • The running costs of your current hot water system
  • How old it is
  • What it is made of -Stainless steel tanks, which more expensive to purchase but lasts longer than Enamel tanks
  • The capacity of your current system vs your household requirements
  • And of course, if it is possible to repair – some issues such as a split in the tank are not repairable
