Choosing the Right Hot Water System for Your Needs

  • Size of the system: The size of the hot water system you need will depend on the size of your household and the amount of hot water you use.

Common Hot Water System Problems

Here are some of the most common hot water system problems that can occur:

  • Leaks: Leaks can occur anywhere in the system, from the tank to the pipes. If you notice a leak, it’s important to turn off the water supply and call an electrician immediately.
  • No hot water: This could be due to a number of problems, such as a faulty thermostat, heating element, or pump. Our electricians can diagnose the problem and make the necessary repairs to get your hot water back up and running.
  • Low water pressure: This can be caused by a number of factors, such as a build-up of sediment in the tank, a faulty valve, or a leak in the pipes. Our electricians can identify the cause of the problem and make the necessary repairs to restore your water pressure.
  • Strange noises: If your hot water system is making strange noises, such as banging, whistling, or humming, it could be a sign of a problem. Our electricians can inspect your system and identify the cause of the noise.

How to Prevent Hot Water System Problems

There are a number of things you can do to prevent hot water system problems, including:

  • Regular maintenance: Regular maintenance is the best way to keep your hot water system in good condition. Our electricians can perform a comprehensive maintenance service on your system to check for any potential problems and make the necessary repairs.
  • Regular flushing: Flushing your hot water system regularly will help to remove sediment build-up, which can cause a number of problems, such as low water pressure and strange noises.
  • Checking the temperature: It’s important to check the temperature of your hot water system regularly to make sure it’s not set too high. A high temperature can put stress on the system and lead to premature failure.

Benefits of Having a Hot Water System Serviced Regularly

There are a number of benefits to having your hot water system serviced regularly, including:

  • Extended lifespan: Regular servicing can help to extend the lifespan of your hot water system.
  • Improved efficiency: Regular servicing can also help to improve the efficiency of your hot water system.
  • Reduced risk of breakdowns: Regular servicing can help to identify and fix potential problems early on, which can reduce the risk of breakdowns.
  • Peace of mind: Knowing that your hot water system is in good condition and has been serviced by a qualified electrician can give you peace of mind.

  • What size hot water system do I need?

    The size of the hot water system you need will depend on your daily hot water consumption. The average daily hot water consumption in Australia is 76 litres per person. Multiplying this number by the number of people in your household will give you a preliminary estimate. However, this is just a starting point, as the actual hot water consumption will also depend on other factors such as the features of your home and the habits of your household members.

  • What is the optimal storage temperature for a hot water system?

    The optimal temperature for hot water storage is 60°C. According to the Plumbing Code of Australia, this is the minimum storage temperature that a system should be set to in order to prevent the growth of bacteria, such as Legionella, which can cause a pneumonia-type illness called Legionnaires’ disease and a mild flu-like illness called Pontiac fever.

  • What is the optimal delivery temperature for a hot water system?

    Do not mistake storage temperature for delivery temperature. 60°C is the optimal temperature for storage, but at this temperature, the water can be extremely dangerous and cause serious scalds. For this reason, the hot water delivery temperature should be regulated and delivered at a much lower temperature. The standard delivery temperature is 50°C, but it can vary depending on the facility and the water outlet points. For example, the maximum water delivery temperature for childcare centres and schools is 45°C. On the other hand, appliances such as washing machines and dishwashers may require water at 60°C to operate more efficiently. Therefore, it is always recommended to have your hot water system installed by a professional to ensure safe and optimal water temperatures for each area of your home.

  • What is a tempering valve and do I need one on my system?

    Tempering valves regulate the water temperature to ensure that the water is delivered at an appropriate and safe temperature. They mix the hot water coming from the storage tank (usually at 60°C) with cold water to reduce the temperature (usually to 50°C) before it reaches the outlet. In order to comply with the Australian Standard (AS3500), tempering valves are required for all new builds and the majority of renovations and hot water system replacements, with a few exceptions where they are not mandatory. However, even when they are not a requirement, it is always recommended to install a tempering valve in your hot water system for safety measures.

  • What are the signs that my hot water system needs repairing?

    Some of the signs that your hot water system may need repairing include: No hot water Low water pressure Strange noises Leaking Rusty or discoloured water High energy bills

  • What are the most common hot water system problems?

    Some of the most common hot water system problems include: Faulty thermostat Faulty heating element Faulty pump Sediment build-up Leaks Corrosion

  • How often should I have my hot water system serviced?

    It is recommended to have your hot water system serviced at least once a year. This will help to identify and fix any potential problems early on, which can extend the lifespan of your system and reduce the risk of breakdowns.
