Canberra hot water system repairs for different types of systems

If something goes wrong with your hot water system, this doesn’t always mean you have to purchase a brand-new one. If there’s a problem, we will do our best to repair your hot water system — no matter what kind you have. If the damage is irreparable, we can also offer our hot water service replacement in Canberra. 

The types of hot water systems we can repair and service include: 

  • Electric storage units — General maintenance for electric hot water units includes replacing the sacrificial anode every few years — however, the frequency can also depend on the water quality in your area. We offer hot water system repairs on these common systems and others.

  • Gas storage tank units — Gas hot water has certain benefits over electric, including faster heat recovery. However, they must still be serviced and maintained correctly to continue running optimally.

  • Gas instant hot water systems — Some problems with gas instant hot water systems include irregularly hot and cold water or lukewarm water. These are common problems that your Climate Plus technician can fix.

  • Electric continuous hot water — We can repair hot water systems if you discover that your electric continuous system is unexpectedly turning water cold or not heating at all, as well as other problems.

  • Solar hot water (gas or electric boosted) — If you’re having issues with your solar hot water system, even when the days are sunny and bright, other problems could need to be investigated. Your Climate Plus technician can look into various possible causes for you.

What types of hot water systems are available?

  • Electric Storage Tanks

Electric hot water storage tanks are commonplace in Canberra. Generally speaking, electric tanks are the cheapest hot water option. They are easy to install and are reliable to help minimise hot water system repair.

Many Canberrans are moving from gas hot water systems to electric systems to harness their rooftop solar system and ensure they feed as little electricity back into the grid as possible. An electric storage tank will help you switch from gas to electric without breaking your bank account.

When you upgrade your existing hot water system to an electric storage tank with our installation partners will take care of everything, from supplying and installing the new system to recycling your old system.

Whether you want to upgrade your existing electric storage tank or replace an existing gas hot water system, call us on 6185 5151 or request an online quote.

  • Hot Water Heat Pump Storage

Hot water heat pump systems are the latest and greatest in hot water heating. A hot water heat pump uses air conditioning technology to heat your hot water and is the most efficient way to heat your hot water with electricity.

A hot water heat pump uses about 30% of the energy of a typical hot water storage tank. It is the perfect companion for your ducted reverse-cycle air conditioner and rooftop solar system.

In cold climates like Canberra, installing a heat pump system with an electric element is important. This element will ensure you have hot water even when it’s freezing outside. A heat pump system extracts heat from the outside air, so when it’s really cold they need some help. This is another reason to stick with a tried and tested brand. Talk to Climate Plus about the best hot water heat pump brand for your home.

There are national and local rebates available for upgrading your hot water system. We will include information about the rebates with your quote. Get in touch with us to provide you with an obligation-free quote today.

  • Gas Continuous Flow

Gas continuous flow is the most common hot water system in Australia. Gas continuous flow systems are popular because they only heat water when needed, and you will never run out of hot water again. The trained and experienced team at Climate Plus can install gas hot water systems in Canberra to replace your existing system.

If you have an existing gas or electric storage tank running out of hot water regularly, upgrading to continuous gas flow could make sense for you. Continuous flow systems are highly efficient and compact (saving precious yard space) and can be temperature-controlled. Some systems can run up to 2 or 3 showers at once, so no more worrying about having too many people showering at once!

Get in touch today for a quote on replacing your existing hot water system with a gas continuous flow hot water system.

  • Gas Storage

Gas storage tanks are seen as the least efficient way to heat hot water. Rheem now manufactures some 5-star equivalent gas storage tanks that act as a cost-efficient replacement to your existing gas storage tank.

At Climate Plus, we recommend replacing an existing gas storage tank with a gas continuous flow system to cut your gas bill down and only pay for heating hot water when needed!

Our partners supply and install various cost-effective and reliable gas storage systems when needed. Click the book online link below to enquire about having us install your gas hot water system in Canberra.

​​Recognising the need for hot water system repairs in Canberra is crucial to maintaining a consistent hot water supply in your home. Key indicators include a lack of hot water, unusual noises from the unit, water that is too hot or cold regardless of settings, discoloured water or leaks around the system.

These signs suggest that the system is not functioning efficiently and may be due to issues such as a malfunctioning thermostat, sediment build-up or a leak in the tank. It’s important to address these symptoms promptly by consulting with a professional to prevent further damage and ensure your system operates effectively.

Signs of a failing hot water system include inconsistent water temperatures, a reduction in water flow or pressure, unusual noises like banging or whining from the tank, leaks or moisture around the unit’s base, and rust-coloured water indicating corrosion inside the tank. Additionally, if your hot water system is older than its expected lifespan, typically around 8–12 years for conventional tanks, it may show signs of wear and inefficiency. Recognising these symptoms early can help you address issues before they lead to a complete system failure.

You must service your hot water system annually to ensure it operates efficiently and safely. Regular servicing by a professional can help identify and fix minor issues before they escalate into major problems, extending the lifespan of your system and maintaining its energy efficiency.
