Hot Water System Repair & Maintenance
Hot water systems are an essential part of any home in Brisbane, providing a consistent hot water supply for bathing, cooking, and cleaning. However, it can also be a source of energy waste if not properly maintained. In particular, leaks in the unit can lead to a loss of hot water and an increase in energy bills. It is therefore essential to repair any leaks in the hot water system as soon as you notice them.
Projection Plumbing’s hot water system repairs will provide years of trouble-free operation.
Types of Hot Water Systems
There are three primary types of hot water systems:
These units heat water on demand, meaning there is no need to store hot water in a tank.
These systems rely on solar panels to absorb the sun’s energy and transfer it to a circulating pump. The heater in the pump is responsible for heating the water whenever you need it.
These units store hot water in an insulated tank and use a heat exchanger to heat the water on demand.
6 Reasons Why Your Hot Water May Not Be Working
If you suspect your hot water tank is leaking, have an inspection done by a professional as soon as possible. A qualified technician from Projection Plumbing will be able to determine the source of the leak and make the necessary repairs.
A gas leak may stop your hot water system from working correctly. If you smell, see a broken gas pipe, or hear a hissing sound, contact Projection Plumbing and immediately evacuate the area.
Failing gas valve
The gas valve is responsible for opening and closing the gas flow to the burner. When it fails, it can cause the burner not to ignite.
Thermostat not working
The thermostat controls the temperature of the water in the system, and if it’s not working properly, the water may not get hot enough.
Malfunctioning of electric water heater
If your hot water system isn’t working, there’s a good chance it’s due to the electric water heater. A tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse is one of the most common issues. A technician from Projection Plumbing will find the problem and fix it quickly.
As homes are built to be more energy-efficient, the demand for hot water has increased, but the size of the tanks has stayed the same. This can lead to a drop in water pressure and an inconsistent hot water supply.
