Why Electric Hot Water?

With electricity costs always rising, as well as its substantially negative impact on the environment, these electric hot water heaters are falling further and further out of favour.

But some manufacturers are putting time and resources into designing and producing much more high-efficiency models. If you choose the right system you can lessen any concerns about excessive running costs.

If you like the sound of an electric hot water system and would like to discuss your options with a hot water systems expert, contact Metropolitan Plumbing. We’re happy to help you make the right choice, then source and install your desired appliance. We can also repair your faulty system, so we’ve got you covered for any situation.

Some of the brands that Metropolitan Plumbing install and service include:

Electric Hot Water Repair and Service

Your hot water system is one thing you never want to start malfunctioning, so it’s incredibly frustrating and annoying when it does.

Here at Metropolitan Plumbing, our hot water systems experts understand this, which is why they’ve all undergone the most comprehensive training and experience possible to make sure they’re ready for any and all repairs you need to be done to your heater.

Not only that, but they also have a huge selection of spare parts stocked in their vans at all times, making repair jobs quick and time efficient.

Available in both storage and continuous flow models, electric hot water systems use an electric element to generate the heat that’s transferred into your water supply. This is a very complicated appliance and is potentially dangerous if somebody who doesn’t know what they’re doing attempts to work on it.

Don’t take that risk. Contact Metropolitan Plumbing as soon as the problem arises, and we’ll have one of our hot water professionals at your door within an hour*.

FAQ - Electric Hot Water System Questions, Answered

Want to know more about electric hot water systems? We're here to help.

The short answer is yes, while the long answer is a qualified yes. In a household of 3-4 people you can attribute about $1000 from your yearly electricity bill to hot water. In comparison, the running costs from natural gas are about a third of the price while solar is even cheaper. You can save money by using hot water during off peak tariff times, however. A heat pump is a cost effective electric option, though, utilising warm air to create hot water, much like a reverse refrigerator. It works best in warmer climates and is slightly noisier to run.
Definitely. If you use solar panels already then your hot water system is likely benefiting from solar power today. It can be a drain on your solar output, however. If you’re looking to make the switch a specific solar hot water system would be a stronger option than hooking up an ageing unit. A new model comes with specific panels which are dedicated to powering your heater. For full coverage on overcast days you can also look into electric boosted or gas boosted systems.
There could be several reasons why your water and hot water system smells. A burning smell can be caused by a build up of dust, surrounding insulation/rubber or an electrical fault. A sulphur like odour in the hot water itself would be the result of bacteria in the water and may well be paired with discolouration. If there are any signs that something is wrong with your hot water system, call our customer service team today to organise an inspection.

Trent was brilliant, arrived on time and did a great job replacing our kitchen mixer tap on a Saturday evening after our existing tap fell apart. Hoping we don’t need emergency services again, but would definitely use them again!

Metropolitan arrived at my door quickly and promptly. Joel diagnosed a gas leak coming from the fittings to my freestanding cooktop and sorted the issue fast. He had my gas back up and running again in no time.

Adrian - WA
