Electric Hot Water Systems in Brisbane

We work with a wide range of electric hot water systems in Brisbane, including traditional electric water heaters and newer tankless models that heat water on-demand.

Electric-Heated Water Tanks

Similar to their gas counterparts, these systems store water in a tank and heat the water with an element located underneath the storage tank. Overall, these are the most common household hot water systems throughout Brisbane. Our licensed and experienced plumbers can help replace your existing unit or install a brand-new electric hot water system in your home.

Tankless Electric Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters, also known as “demand-type,” heat water as needed before distributing hot water throughout your home. Rather than heating the entire tank, these systems heat water as it passes through a heat exchanger to deliver near-instant hot water as needed. While these systems typically have a lower flow rate than other types of water heaters, they provide exceptional efficiency by only heating water on demand.

 Electric Hot Water System FAQs

Is electric hot water better than gas?

Electric hot water systems are more energy efficient than gas, which has led many Brisbane homeowners to switch from gas to electric. In the long term, gas hot water systems offer better cost savings, so which is better for your home depends on your priorities.

Are electric instant hot water systems expensive to run?

Most electric hot water systems cost more to run than gas. However, these systems are cheaper to install upfront and are more sustainable, as they do not burn natural gas.

What is the most common problem with water heaters?

For electric water heaters, a cracked tank or faulty system are the most common issues that lead to hot water problems. The best way to avoid these issues is to service your hot water unit at least once every 5 years.

Why is my water heater not heating properly?

Heating problems may be due to a worn out tempering valve or a heating element that needs replacing. Thermostat issues can also cause your water heater to not heat properly. Lastly, external electrical issues can also cause problems with your water heater.
