electric hot water repair

Electric water heaters typically offer a wide range of advantages over fuel-fired water heating systems. Electric units generally are safer, offer better indoor air quality, and frequently are more convenient to use than other water heater types. Electric hot water repairs are also often easier on the pocket, as parts are readily available from all the main manufacturers in Sydney.

Electric water heating systems can last up to ten years if they are adequately maintained. By servicing your electrical water heating system regularly, you not only improve your system’s longevity but prevent problems from occurring, which eliminates inconvenience and repair costs.

If you are like most property owners, you may find routine maintenance and repairs to be a daunting and expensive prospect. If you live in Sydney, however, the good news is that Hot Water Systems Sydney offers affordable, quality electric hot water unit repairs and can maintain your electric hot water system for you.

Electric Hot Water Service

Hot Water Systems Sydney offers extensive electric hot water system services. We recommend getting your systems serviced at least once per year to prevent potentially costly issues.

When we service an electric water heater, we start by conducting a thorough inspection. Depending on the frequency of services and last time that your unit received a service, we will also replace components such as the anode rod to prevent decay, corrosion, and issues with your hot water cylinder.

As part of our routine service, we will also clean the entire system and flush your tank with a peroxide solution to prevent the build-up of bacteria and corrosion.

You can also take some steps to ensure that your electric hot water system remains in an excellent working condition. Inspect the unit at least once per month for cracks or signs of wearing, and switch off your system if you are not going to use it for a few days. You should also inspect the relief valve regularly to prevent the build-up of excess pressure. If you come across any issues, you can give us a call, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Common Electric Water Heater Repairs

During our years of repairing electric water heating systems, Hot Water Systems Sydney’s team has come across many different types of defects. The most common electric hot water problems include:

No Hot Water

One of the most visible signs that your electric hot water system is not working is when you turn on the tap, and the water that comes out is cold. In most cases, an electric hot water system heats water with two heating elements.

If the circuit breaker hasn’t tripped, you might have to replace the heating elements or find out if there is an issue with the limit switch on the thermostat.

Electric Leaking Hot Water System

Water leaking from the top may be due to a loose cold inlet or hot outlet pipes, a defective T&P valve, or leaking inlet valve.

Low Hot Water Pressure

If you have insufficient hot water pressure, you may have to install a new ¾-inch piping which will allow more water to flow through. Sediment or calcium build-ups can also cause low water pressure.
