Same day hot water systems in Perth
We are here to ensure that you are never without hot water! A failed hot water system can be distressing. This we fully understand and it is our commitment to ensure that your hot water woes are taken care of without too much of a disruption for you.
The Hot Water Guy undertakes to repair and replace most brands of electric and gas hot water systems (storage and instantaneous) on the same day. We repair and maintain solar hot water systems too.
Our qualified tradesmen will carry out a thorough assessment of your unit and will always endeavour to repair your hot water system economically rather than simply recommending a new unit as we understand that not everyone is ready for the expense.
Where a repair is not possible and a new unit is required, the tradesman will discuss your needs and will recommend a product to specifically suit. In most cases we can have the new unit installed the same day. We supply and install leading brands, all of which carry the manufacturer’s warranty.
All hot water systems are professionally installed to legal standard and the costs include the submission of relevant documentation to the plumbing and gas authorities as required. This ensures that you will not void the Manufacturer’s warranty.
Don’t risk voiding your warranty. Regularly service your Hot Water Unit. Servicing can prolong the life of your hot water unit and keep it working efficiently. The Hot Water Guy can arrange the servicing of your unit, so get us to attend to this for you.
A Gas Storage Water Heater consists of an insulated storage tank, where hot water is kept ready to be used. The water is stored at a pre-set temperature typically 60-80°C. The water is heated in the storage tank by a gas burner. As hot water is used, the cold water entering the tank is heated to the pre-set temperature.
Instantaneous gas hot water systems, also known as continuous flow, don’t have storage tanks and water is heated as it is required. Water is heated by a gas burner as it flows through a coiled pipe called a heat exchanger. This means that instantaneous units supply hot water at various pressure/flow rates than storage systems.
An Electric Storage Water Heater (ESWH) consists of an insulated storage tank, usually cylindrical, where hot water is kept ready to be used. The water is stored at a pre-set temperature typically 60-80°C. The water is heated in the storage tank by one or more electric resistance elements.
Electric continuous flow systems are small in size and usually situated indoors. For hot water on demand choose a continuous flow hot water system. Continuous flow or instantaneous hot water systems heat only as much water as you need, when you need it.
A heat pump works on the same principle as a refrigerator but in reverse. Instead of pumping heat out of the fridge to keep it cool, it pumps heat into the water. Using electricity a refrigerant is pumped through the system. The refrigerant transfers the heat absorbed through the air to the water in the tank.
Is your hot water unit over five years old?
Every Hot Water Unit, whether gas, electric or solar have a sacrificial anode which protects the tank, by corroding itself instead of your tank.
In order to prolong the life of your unit and to protect your investment, it is in your best interest to regularly service your hot water unit and to change the anode every FIVE years.
Once the tank corrodes, there is no going back, you will need a new unit. Avoid waking up to a cold shower and the expense of a new Hot Water Unit by keeping on top of it.
