Has your hot water stopped working? Is your hot water system broken or leaking? Or maybe it's time for an upgrade. Whether it's a simple fix or a more complex problem, be sure to always use a licensed plumber for repairs.
Electric Hot Water Systems
Electric Storage Hot Water Units are designed to heat the water in an insulated tank using an electric element. Electric heat pumps are also available and are more environmentally friendly than storage systems because they are quite efficient. These units take heat from the ambient air to heat the water. There are also solar electric boosted systems, which use the sun's energy to heat the water. These are a cheaper system to run and are great for climates that receive a lot of sun.
Gas Hot Water Systems
Gas storage hot water systems, available in 4 and 5 star models, heat the water and store it for immediate use. Alternatively, Continuous Flow Hot Water Units heats the water as it flows through coiled pipe, which means you'll never run out of hot water. Continuous flow units are much smaller in size than storage units. Solar gas boosted systems use the sun’s energy to heat water, so they are much better for the environment and are also cheaper to run.
