Hot Water Systems Canberra

    Spencer and Son’s Plumbing

    The average hot water system lasts up to around 10-20 years, so a new boiler isn’t something you should need to buy too often (thankfully).

Because we have been replacing hot water systems Canberra for years and years, we are experts in helping people choose the right hot water system for their Canberra home to keep their hot water ‘hot’ all year round.

    Why Replace your Hot Water System?

    The most common reason we see for people replacing their hot water system is that they are broken, leak or no longer heat the water efficiently. Ideally you should replace your hot water system before they get to this point because a hot water system at the end of its life isn’t energy-efficient and is prone to extensive repair work. As heating water can count for up to 40% of the average home’s energy bills, it’s important to have a hot water system which is as energy-efficient as possible. Fortunately, modern hot water system such as Rheem systems are much more efficient than ones designed even as recently as 10-15 years ago, so a new hot water system to replace an old one which has just started having trouble, can save you money as well as headaches.

    Choosing a Hot Water Service

    The type of property you have, the size of your family and the way you use hot water will all affect which type and size of the hot water system. Because there is quite a lot to take into consideration when choosing a new hot water system that will work best for your home and your family, we can ask you the right questions to lead us to make a recommendation based on our experience and knowledge.

    What Types are There?

    When your hot water system dies, you can find yourself in a scramble to replace it as quickly as possible. However, if you don’t choose the right system for your home, the replacement can end up being a waste of time, money and effort. Our highly skilled and professional engineers will guide you in making the right decision, taking special consideration of the design of your home, as well as your personal needs. Your new and improved hot water systems will fall under one of these three options:

    Continuous Flow

    A continuous flow water system is mounted onto a wall. This water system is fairly small, and heats water as it is used, as opposed to pre-heating and storing the water. Cold water is pushed through the pipes of this system, which are heated directly through the process. These systems

    Electric Storage

    As the name implies, an electric storage water system electronically heats water in a tank. It is then stored until it is siphoned off when a hot water tap is opened. The water is heated by an element, while the temperature of the water is maintained by a thermostat. Where there is no gas available, electric storage systems are used as an alternative. In the event of the water pressure getting too high, it will be pushed out through a relief valve.

    Gas Storage

    Much like an electric storage water system, a gas storage system operates using a tank that is filled with cold water which is then heated and stored. The main difference is that the water in the tank is heated with a burner (as opposed to an electric element), with gas as the energy source. In this case, the temperature is also controlled and maintained by a thermostat.
