Hot Water Systems

Shaw's Plumbing and Gas

Brisbane's hot water specialists

There are few things that could irritate a person more than being half way through a hot shower when the water runs out. We’ve all been there, I’m sure.

An inefficient hot water system, however, could mean more than the hot water running out. In fact, below are some tell-tale signs that you might have a poorly functioning hot water system.

  • Your hot water runs out too fast
  • You have excessive energy bills
  • The water has a rusty colour to it
  • You have por hot water pressure at the outlets
  • You can see water settling or pooling around your tank

Hot water heaters and hot water systems come in many shapes and sizes, meaning if you’re looking to get optimal results from your hot water system, you need to weigh up the options and choose the right solution.

Only a hot water specialist like Shaw’s Pluming & Gas can help you achieve this. Located in Brisbane, we’ve dealt with every type of hot water installation over the years. 

Some of those systems include:

  • Storage heaters (hot water tanks)
  • Instantaneous hot water heaters (on demand unit's like Rinnai's)
  • Solar hot water heaters (you'll occasionally see these on roofs)
  • Heat pumps
  • Even hydronic heating

As hot water heating systems age, inevitably, they’ll need to be maintained and eventually, replaced. Understanding what systems are available is an extremely important bit of research, that you’d be mad not to engage an expert for. 

There are so many variables that come into play when choosing your system. Things like:

  • How many people live in your home (and how many of those are 15 year old females)?
  • How many fixtures will need to draw hot water?
  • What aspect does you property face?
  • Do you have adequate water pressure where you live?
  • What fuel sources do you have at your disposal? Electric, gas, solar panels, or a maybe a combination?
  • How much space do you have? Will your heater live inside, or outside?

These are all things that we need to discuss with our clients in order to ensure that when we’re replacing or installing a hot water heating system, we’re installing the right one.
