Electric Hot Water Gold Coast

 

Electric hot water systems remain the most popular hot water system installed in Gold Coast homes and commercial buildings. Even though electric hot water systems are the least efficient of all hot water heaters they have traditionally been installed in most new homes, duplex units, apartment and townhouses.

hot water systems Gold Coast - Rheem electric hot water systemAn electric hot water system is a very simple system with an electric element, normally 3.6kw heating the water to around 70°C, that is stored in a storage tank so that hot water will be delivered when you turn the tap on. The hot water systems storage tanks come in a range of sizes and generally are 25 litres, 50 litres, 80 litre, 125 litres, 160 litres, 250 litres, 315 litres or 400 litres.

Generally, an electric hot water system is the cheapest system to buy and install but they are expensive to run especially on the normal electricity supply tariff. Off peak electricity supply tariffs are the best option for 250 litres, 315 litres and 400-litre electric hot water systems.

Here at Whywait Plumbing we supply, install, maintain, service and repair all major manufacturer’s electric hot water systems brands including:

  • Rheem electric hot water systems
  • Dux electric hot water systems
  • Rinnai electric hot water systems
  • Vulcan electric hot water systems
  • AquaMax electric hot water systems
  • Saxon electric hot water systems

Gas Hot Water Gold Coast

 

Gas hot water systems on the Gold Coast tend to be installed in newer housing estates where there is reticulated natural gas. Gas hot water systems are not as popular on the Gold Coast compared to electric hot water systems.

Hot Water Systems Gold Coast - gas hot waterYes, gas hot water systems are more expensive to install. And yes they can vary in price significantly depending on the gas type, brand, location, storage or instantaneous. However, compared to an electric system a gas hot water system is much cheaper to run.

Gold Coast gas hot water systems use either natural gas or LPG bottle gas and come as either:

  1. a storage tank hot water system
    • This is where hot water is stored in an insulated tank. This keeps the water at a constant temperature. There is a gas pilot light that burns continuously, lighting the main burner under the tank to heat the water as required. This hot water system operates in a similar way to an electric storage system but generally heats the water faster.
  2. a gas instantaneous or continuous flow system
    • These are also known as endless on demand units.  They are all the same type of units but with different descriptions used. These units only heat the water up when you turn a hot tap on so they are very efficient and best of all have an endless supply of instant gas hot water.

Here at Whywait Plumbing we supply, install, maintain, service and repair all major manufacturers gas hot water systems brands including:

  • Rheem gas hot water systems
  • Dux gas hot water systems
  • Rinnai gas hot water systems
  • Vulcan gas hot water systems
  • AquaMax gas hot water systems
  • Bosch gas hot water systems

If we cannot repair your gas hot water system our experienced plumbing technicians will help you choose a replacement gas hot water systems Gold Coast that best suits your requirements.

Whywait Plumbing will install a like for like gas hot water system same day if required.  We know when you are without hot water you want it back NOW.


Heat Pump Hot Water Gold Coast

 

We first installed heat pump systems on the Gold Coast in 1986. But heat pump hot water systems have only gained popularity in the last 10 years when hot water energy efficient sustainable solutions became mandatory.

hot water systems Gold Coast - heat pump hot waterHeat pump systems work extremely efficiently in the Gold Coast climate. They are a popular alternative to solar hot water systems as they are not dependent on sunlight to heat the water plus there no collector panels on the roof.

All heat pump hot water systems operate similarly as an energy-efficient replacement for your traditional electric hot water system. Heat pump systems save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by absorbing heat from the air and transferring it to heat the water via a simple heat exchange system.

Heat pump hot water systems still need an electrical connection but it’s only to run a compressor to pump the refrigerant gas. The refrigerant gas is converted to a high-temperature gas in a heat exchange unit which then heats the water inside the storage tank. Heat exchange hot water systems are much more efficient than an electric hot water system with electricity use reduced by up to 80%.

Here at Whywait Plumbing we are heat pump specialists being the only accredited Sanden “Eco” Heat Pump hot water system distributor for the Gold Coast. We also supply, install, maintain, service and repair all reputable major manufacturers heat pump hot water systems.  Brands we work with include:

Solar Hot Water Systems Gold Coast

 

Solar hot water systems were first installed by Whywait in 1979 and for many years we were the Gold Coast distributors for Beasley solar hot water systems. The Gold Coast climate is ideal for solar hot water systems because of its sunny hot summers; and temperate winters with clear blue skies.

hot water systems Gold Coast - solar hot water

Solar hot water systems have improved greatly in efficiency since we first installed them in 1979. These days we supply, install and maintain the most technologically advanced solar system available on the Gold Coast. This is SolarArk solar hot water systems. The technology to heat your hot water in SolarArk utilises high performance solar evacuated tubes.

As we all know, electricity and gas prices continue to increase in Queensland. This means sustainable, energy efficient hot water heating solutions have become increasingly popular. There have been generous government subsidies to install solar hot water systems in your Gold Coast home. Because of this opportunity in the industry, many unscrupulous manufacturers and installers have come and gone on the Gold Coast.  Many solar hot water systems they’ve installed are sub-standard and only operate for a few years before needing total replacement.

Here at Whywait Plumbing, we’ve been on the Gold Coast for 40 years. We are solar hot water specialists and we will only recommend the premium system, SolarArk solar hot water systems for the Gold Coast. However, we also supply, install, maintain, service and repair all reputable major manufacturers solar hot water systems brands including:

Hot Water Maintenance and Servicing Gold Coast

 

Regular scheduled maintenance and servicing of your hot water system can make a huge difference to the performance of every type of hot water system. An efficient well maintained hot water system is essential in keeping energy and maintenance costs to a minimum but also for guaranteeing a constant supply of steaming hot water.

Up to 30% of a home’s energy costs are incurred by heating hot water. So it makes sense to regularly maintain and service your hot water system.

Most hot water systems have manufacturers guarantees of between 5 – 7 years. But the reality is these guarantees reduce hugely after 1 year.  Most of the working parts on any hot water system are guaranteed for only 1 year.

We undertake repairs, maintenance and servicing on all brands and all types of hot water systems. We guarantee same day service on all hot water servicing repairs because we know you don’t want another cold shower.

Our plumbing technicians will arrive as scheduled, fully equipped to service your hot water system. Our hot water maintenance and servicing are all inclusive on any electric hot water systems, gas hot water systems, instantaneous gas hot water systems, heat pump hot water systems and solar hot water systems and include but are not limited to:

  • electric elements and thermostats
  • pressure relief valves
  • cold water expansion valves
  • tempering and thermostatic mixing valves
  • pressure limiting valves
  • isolation non-return valves
  • sacrificial anodes
  • pressure reduction valves
  • circulating pump
  • solar collectors
  • heat pump compressors
  • electrical fuses and circuit breakers
  • gas pilot lights
  • gas burners
  • gas controllers

Sometimes the service is too late. If this is the case you may need a replacement of your hot water system. If this is the case, we will advise you on which new hot water systems Gold Coast is ideal for you. Plus we will give you an upfront guaranteed price before we install your new hot water system.
