Thinking About Replacing Your Adelaide Hot Water System?

A hot water system is an essential household appliance that is easily forgotten when it’s working. This is the biggest reason why many homeowners fail to see obvious signs that their hot water heater is on the brink of a breakdown. Modern hot water systems are durable appliances that usually last for years. However, even with the best maintenance and care, these necessary appliances do not last forever and there will come a time when you need to replace the system with a new one. We do not want you to wake up to a cold shower and experience a sudden breakdown leaving you frantically searching for an emergency hot water plumber. So, we are covering some of the tell-tale signs you can look out for to determine when a hot water replacement is your best option.

  1. You’re Using an Old Unit: if your hot water system has served you longer than its estimated lifespan then it’s time for you to consider replacing it with a new one. An old hot water unit loses its efficiency and may begin to falter anytime. Most hot water systems last 10-12 years and if your appliance is older than the service life (as marked on the tank) then it’s overdue to be replaced.
  2. Brown, Rusty Water Means Corrosion: if the hot water running out of your taps is brown in colour it usually means the hot water tank has deteriorated beyond repair. Discoloured water is a sign that corrosion has entered the water tank and is rusting the components. If you see corrosion on the tank or brown water, call an Adelaide hot water plumber to inspect the system thoroughly and advise on the next steps.
  3. The Hot Water System Can No Longer Meet Your Demands: families grow and the humble hot water system you installed initially may not be able to meet your growing hot water needs. Or the unit you have currently may be losing its regular supply of hot water and not providing you enough hot water to the level you expect. If this is the case, then you must consider bringing in a hot water specialist to replace the unit for you.
  4. You Wish To Take Advantage of Modern Energy Efficient Hot Water Systems or Tankless Technology: hot water systems account for more than 25% of the energy usage in a household. If your hot water system costs more to run or if you find that your household uses enough hot water that your system cannot supply easily, then you should investigate the possibility of installing a new, more efficient hot water system. Gas, solar or heat pump hot water systems are the energy-efficient options available in the market. Tankless hot water systems do not run out of hot water because they heat up water on-demand as you need it. Have a chat with your hot water expert as these units cost less to operate and will save you money in the long run.
