WHEN IS IT TIME TO REPLACE YOUR HOT WATER SYSTEM?

June 08, 2021

10:00am

It would be nice to think that your hot water system will last forever but unfortunately they don’t!

When they are working, life is bliss. When they aren’t working, what a nightmare!

As a general guide, most hot water systems have a life of approximately 8 to 12 years. If your HW system is approaching this age and you’re experiencing regular problems with your hot water supply … it might be time for a replacement.

We have compiled a list of things to keep an eye on. The list includes gas, solar and electric hot water systems. All of the things listed below are a great guide to tell if your hot water system is on it’s way out.

Solar Hot Water Systems

Solar Hot Water Systems are definitely the eco-friendly choice of hot water systems throughout Australia and their popularity is only growing for homeowners across the country.

Yet, like all systems, they break down over time. The most common signs your solar hot water system is faulty are;

  • not enough hot water
  • solar panel is leaking
  • no hot water at all
  • broken glass on the solar panel
  • system is making a knocking noise

Electric Hot Water System

Electric Hot Water Systems are your classic Australian source of hot water. They are generally very durable and long-lasting. However, like anything, they don’t last forever and require periodic maintenance or replacement to ensure they operate at optimal performance all year round.

The most common signs that your electric hot water system is faulty are;

  • not enough hot water
  • no hot water at all
  • there is sludge or rust around the fittings (corrosion – most likely means your system has a leak eek!)

  • leaking water
