Having the right Hot Water Installation is must! There’s no point putting in a system that’s not suitable for the job. If you undersize your hot water installation someone’s going to end up with a cold shower in the middle of winter and if you over size your hot water installation you will be wasting energy in heating a volume that will never be used.
We are only interested in the right product for the right application. Whether you require electric storage, electric instantaneous, gas storage, gas instantaneous or even a solar hot water installation we have a solution for you.
When choosing the right unit, there a many different things to take into consideration. Firstly, how many bathrooms will it be servicing? How many people occupy the residence? What options does the residence have available to it, in regards to electric, gas, or solar? If you have Solar panels collecting electricity, do they produce enough surplus energy that a solar hot water installation is unnecessary? We are experts in this field and are only too happy to answer all these questions!
With every hot water installation, we guarantee that we will not re-use old valves and fittings, everything will be installed as new and to the current regulations with the highest of standards. Most valves have a limited life span and run the risk of not working correctly and can often lead to voiding warranty on the tank so why take the risk??? All hot water installations require a tempering valve installed to allow a maximum of 50 degrees Celsius to run to bathrooms this is to prevent scalding. It has been proven that reducing the temperature from 75 degrees (which is what many systems can produce) down to 50 degrees increase burn time from 1 second to 15 seconds hopefully allowing time to prevent serious injury. This is very important especially when it comes to your children and their very fragile skin.
Only fully qualified and insured Plumbing contractors like ourselves are able to do hot water installations. Home handymen do NOT fall under this catergory and if damage occurs to your property as a result, you will not be eligble for an insurance claim. Did you know that any hot water installation requires council approval? We take care of the paperwork! With all our hot water installations we will provide the council certificate required so that you have a record of the work on file. Illegal hot water installations can result in hefty fines and if not done correctly can often lead to poor hot water life span.
We like to offer our clients a fixed price so they have the peace of mind that there will be no hidden cost for their hot water installation along the way.
