popular questions on plumbing or hot water

Your hot water system may have an external dial to set the temperature or it may be under the outer cover which will be an easy adjustment. The recommended temperature is 50 degrees Celsius. Some models display the temperature, however others just have a dial with no numbers leaving you to either guess or use you home thermometer to work it out . In some cases the best action is to install a tempering valve to ensure the hot and cold water is mixing correctly to deliver the desired water temperature.

Which ever method you need to use, enlisting the help of a licensed plumber will ensure it is done correctly.

  • Gas hot water systems are environmentally friendly. Natural gas burns much less CO2 to heat the water than electricity. Electric systems can burn as much CO2 as an average sized car.
  • Gas burns very hot and very little heat is wasted making the system very energy efficient
  • Running costs are less for gas systems than for electric.
  • Gas systems heat the water up fast. No more waiting around for the water to heat to finish the showers in the evening.

 

Electricity is up to 60% cheaper on off-peak tariff. You will also be reducing the demand on the electricity system by running your water heater during off-peak times.

Before deciding on a hot water system take in to account the following:

  • Running costs
  • Size
  • Electric, Gas or Solar
  • Initial cost
  • Energy efficiency
  • Where do I want to install the new system
