    How Much Should It Cost To Have A Hot Water Heater Installed?

    The average cost of installing a new hot water system in Australia is between $200 and $600. However, this is only the case if you’re replacing an existing hot water system with one of the exact same type, and this does not factor the cost of the water heater unit itself into account.

    First, you will need to consider the size of the water heater you need in your home. Water heaters with a higher tank capacity or heating capacity will always be more expensive than smaller units. This is true whether you choose an electric system like a heat pump water heater, a solar water heater, or a water heater powered by natural gas.

    So we highly recommend consulting with an experienced plumber and discussing how much hot water your home needs. Tanks can vary in size from 25L all the way up to 400L, and tankless, on-demand heaters vary greatly in capacity, too. Choosing the right size will help you save money when installing and operating your water heater.

    Hot Water Repairs for Mosman Residents

    Every household should have a hot water system that is running efficiently and effectively. If you notice any of the below signs, you know you have a bigger problems

    • Leaks in the tank - If from the bottom, this can happen from years of sediment build-up and rust Another cause could be from incorrect initial installation or old age. If the problem is located at the top, then it could be a loose valve or pipefitting.

    • The temperature has changed to cold - The reason could be dependent on what energy source you are running off. If you have gas, there could be no gas supply, or your pilot light has turned off. For electrical tanks, the thermostat could be busted, or the heating element could be faulty.

    • Hot water running out regularly - The size of your container may not be big enough to handle your usage. Your boiler could be struggling to provide sufficient heating, particularly if you have an instantaneous system and a large household.

    • Large water bills - Your bill may be skyrocketing if a leak is located somewhere in the unit • Noisy Tank - A build-up of sediment is the most common cause of a noisy tank. Naturally, H20 has material deposits inside of it, and it will settle down the bottom. The sediment pieces end up swirling around the inside, hitting the cylinder,

    If you are experiencing issues such as a leaking system, low pressure, or no warm water, it is safe to say you require a replacement unit or at the very least, the right repairs made.

    How Long Should A Hot Water Tank Last?

    A properly installed and high-quality hot water tank will last between 8 to 12 years. Like everything else, time and consistent use will wear down the tank. If your hot water system has reached 15-20 years old and has started being noisy and failing to give you the hot water you need consistently, it’s probably at the end of its life.

    If you’re in an older property without any information about when the hot water system was installed, it’s a good idea to get a professional plumber to come and take a look to determine whether it can be repaired.

    Please note that getting these levels of life expectancy from the hot water systems is only feasible with attention to hot water system maintenance. For instance, you may need to replace parts like anodes every five years to keep the system in the best shape.

    If you’re searching for Mosman hot water service or installation, look no further. Your local Mosman hot water plumber can handle this for you and we can provide the best hot water solution to suite your home and your requirements.

    It’s up to 40% cheaper than electricity to use and up to 50% cheaper to maintain and service with fewer parts.

      Tempering Valves & How They Work

      A tempering valve is one of the best ways to ensure people are not harmed or scalded by hot water when it comes out of a faucet. It works as a mixing tool, as it combines both cold and hot water to correctly produce the required water temperature to be released from a particular outlet.

      Tempering valves work by allowing the 60 c water inside the unit to be mixed with cold water and then safely flow out of the faucet with a temperature of 45 c to 50 c. For some institutions such as young, aged, sick and disabled facilities eg, nursing homes, the maximum delivery temperature should not exceed 45 c.

      According to Australian Standard AS3500.4.2 Clause 1.6 water temperature that comes out of the taps must not exceed 50 c but to prevent legionella bacteria from developing inside the tank the temperature must always be at 60 c.

      Tempering valves work by allowing the 60 c water inside the unit to be mixed with cold water and then safely flow out of the faucet with a temperature of 45 c to 50 c. For some institutions such as young, aged, sick, and disabled facilities e.g., nursing homes, the maximum delivery temperature should not exceed 45 c.
