Your Canberra household will rely on hot water for cleaning, washing, personal hygiene and comfort so it’s important to get a hot water system that will deliver to our needs every time you turn on a tap. That’s why it’s essential to hire a plumber you trust and who knows the local ACT climate to help you select, install and maintain the right hot water heating system for your home.

Hot water heaters last for years, particularly electric hot water systems which have been known to last for decades when well maintained and looked after. At some point in your property ownership, you will need to consider a hot water heater purchase. This might be for a new home build or renovation, to get better energy efficiency and performance if your existing system isn’t meeting your needs, to change to a green energy system and take advantage of government rebates or simply because your old water heater has kicked the bucket. 

Before you make your choice of hot water heater type, size and style, have a chat with our friendly Fluid Plumbing professional team who come out to visit your Canberra home, take your property size, budget, existing hot water system performance and hot water needs into account. We can suggest a number of quality matches and discuss their pricing, ongoing costs and service schedules so you can choose the one that’s perfect for your requirements.

We work with all the big brands and are authorised to install and service Vulcan, Rheem, and Dux to name a few. The Fluid Plumbing team take pride in our quality service and workmanship and will strive to provide you with a result that surpasses your expectations.

What is an Electric Hot Water System?

Electric hot water systems are some of the cheapest hot water heater types to purchase for homes and businesses, even in the highest quality range, prices are still sometimes lower than gas or solar because the traditional technology has been around and is well tested. 

That doesn’t mean there’s no innovation or technology involved. Many top brands continue to work towards more environmentally friendly and energy-efficient electric systems, giving you a wider choice and more flexibility. Their reliability and affordability help make them one of the most popular choices for Australian homes. 

There is a large range of different types and tank sizes available on the Australian market that are well suited to the Canberra climate. Modern electric water heaters push hard to be energy-efficient and have reduced maintenance costs so you get better value for your money and keep you in hot water, especially on those chilly winter mornings.

The Fluid Plumbing Services team is here to help with installation, repairs, and maintenance for your system whether you are choosing a tank system for instant hot water or a continuous flow hot water system for compact mounting and endless hot water supply. 

How Does An Electric Hot Water System Work?

Choosing the right hot water system for your home will depend on a number of varying factors including your property type, number of bathrooms and typical hot water use.

Every family and home in Canberra has different needs and different patterns for their hot water use, be it bathing little ones, late night showers after shift work or oodles of hot water laundry. At Fluid Plumbing we know how important it is to ask the right questions rather than assume everyone has the same water needs and values when it comes to energy efficiency, safety, reliability or water-saving technology. 

Different sizes and types are specially designed to work best for small homes and apartments right, medium-sized family homes right through to busy households.

Once the right electric hot water has been selected we can install it in a matter of hours and have you ready to go. Like-for-like or like-for-similar units are simple, straightforward and cost-effective since our team can use your existing location and connections for your new water heater unit.

What Are the Benefits of an Electric Hot Water System?

As well as choosing the right electric hot water heater for your home it’s essential that you maintain your system to give it the longest life possible and keep the efficiency and operation to the highest possible standard. Electric tank hot water systems are prone to corrosion due to minerals in Canberra town water. To combat this, sacrificial elements are placed inside the tank that attract corrosive elements and break down so your tank can stay strong. We can let you know how often your serving needs to be to replace these cheap rods as well as check over your hot water system to make sure everything is ticking along nicely. 

Once your hot water system is installed you can contact us for any issues, including taking advantage of our 24/7 emergency response service if your hot water isn’t working. In many cases, a breakdown doesn’t mean a replacement. Simple repairs and parts replaced are a normal part of your long-term hot water system ownership. While tanks and heater units can have long warranties the wiring and smaller elements might only have warranties for 1 to three years so getting these checked regularly can help get them replaced before they fail.

Regular serving also means you will get a head’s up when your heater is nearing the end of its life so you can plan and budget for its replacement.
