Winter Timing is approaching fast!! Can you already feel the temperature dropping?
Coming into winter the most important question you should be asking yourself is, “Is my hot water heater fully functioning?”
You’re probably thinking, “how would i know, Im not a plumber?
Believe it or not it’s actually quite simple. Have a look at the expiry date to start with. Anything over 8 years old should really be looked at by a licensed plumber & serviced if necessary.
Another thing to look out for would be any signs of rust showing in the unit, around the unit or even rusty water coming through the taps in your home.
These are usually signs that I would advise you to not take lightly. Rust is usually the first sign of a heater being on its final legs.
So if you have noticed any of these issues or if you need a hand to identify the issues by a professional, call ADKO Plumbing today & we will have one of our hot water specialists come out & advice you on the best option suitable for your situation.
That may be servicing the hot water unit, repairing the hot water unit & even in some other cases replacing the unit.
You’re probably wondering at this point how much does a hot water unit cost?
At ADKO we are completely transparent with our clients and offer upfront fixed pricing with no hidden costs. These are just a couple of the options you have if you are looking for an upgrade, or a replacement for your existing heater.
Such a common problem our clients have are not knowing the signs to look out for in the event of a blocked drain.
Some times knowing the signs can give you the opportunity to call out a licensed plumber or blocked drain specialist to assist you before the problem escalates.
One of the signs could be a gurgling sound coming from your drains when they are in use. Another sign could be that you noticed there is no water in your toilet bowl.
In outdoors situation a common sign of a broken pipe would be either a bad smell or a damp area where grass has grown more than the rest of the yard.
Keeping an eye on these little signs, could prevent a serious plumbing issue from arising.
If you experience any of the signs, pick up the phone immediately and call ADKO plumbing, we are drainage specialists, that offer up front pricing, 24 hours a day 7 days a week & same day service guaranteed.
Today ADKO went out to a job in the north shore where one of our regular clients requested a hot water system conversion from gas storage to a gas instantaneous heater.
Commonly enough when people are anticipating the cost of something like this they don’t factor in all the contributing costs. Like allowing for a power point to be installed outside to run the new instantaneous heater off. Or the reconfiguration of pipework necessary to make the change work.
A traditional gas heating system, must heat the water in the entire tank (some times over 500L) which requires more gas, which equals higher gas bills $$$$. Over a year, for an average household a 5 star Gas Storage hot water heater is likely to use 5%-10% more gas than a Gas Continuous Flow/Instantaneous hot water system.
Another important factor to consider is the space/location. A Gas storage water system requires alot more space than an instantaneous hot water system. An instantaneous hot water system can be mounted on a wall and almost requires no space.
The installation cost between the two is almost negligible. The difference being, you may require an electrician to install a power point for the instantaneous system.
As far as reliability goes, both systems are proven to be as reliable as each other and both have inbuilt safety measures to ensure your safety in case of failure.
At ADKO we boast a skilled team of hot water system plumbing technicians. We have all the information you need & offer up front pricing with no hidden costs. We operate 24 hours a day & 7 days a week, so please don’t hesitate to call us at any time if you’re thinking of making the switch from a storage tank to an instantaneous heater.
