How do I know when it's time to replace or repair my hot water system?
Aside from not having any hot water, there are other indicators that could point towards a fault in your water system:
• Excessive water leaking or dripping
• Pilot light isn't working or has gone out
• our water isn't heating
• Water pressure is low or inconsistent
• Banging or rumbling noises
If you notice any of these then contact our team straightaway. These aren't the only signs though, so we recommend regular maintenance to keep everything up-to-date.
Which hot water system should I get?
At Airlie Beach Hot Water Service we offer electric, gas and solar hot water systems. However, deciding which system is right for you depends on your situation.
Electric heating systems are cheap upfront, provide reliable heating and are easy to maintain and replace. However, they are usually the most expensive over time and produce a lot of greenhouse gases.
Gas heating systems are rising in popularity, are cheaper than solar and provide cost- effective, reliable heating throughout the day or night. The main drawback with gas systems is that they cannot be installed into a building with no gas line.
Solar heating systems are the most environmentally friendly heating solution available at the moment. They are the most expensive upfront and if you have poor sunlight in your area they may not be feasible, but gas-boosted water systems provide a good backup in those situations. Over time, solar heating systems pay for themselves, making them the smart choice both environmentally and economically.
How do I know which system is best for my home?
