  • What are the main types of hot water heaters available in Melbourne?
    The primary types are continuous flow (similar to tankless) water heaters, storage water heaters, heat pump water heaters, and solar water heaters. Each type has its own benefits and is designed for different household needs.
  • How do I determine the right size for my home?
    The size you need is based on your household’s peak hour water usage. Calculate the total liter's of hot water you use during the busiest hour of the day. For storage heaters, the capacity in liter's should match or exceed this number. For continuous flow heaters, consider the flow rate (liter's per minute).
  • Are energy-efficient water heaters beneficial in Melbourne?
    Yes, models with high energy rating stars can lead to significant savings on your electricity or gas bills, aligning with Australian energy efficiency standards.
  • How long does a typical hot water heater last in Melbourne?
    On average, traditional storage water heaters last about 10-15 years, while continuous flow models can last up to 20 years with the right care. However, the lifespan can vary based on factors like usage, water quality, and maintenance.
  • Can I install the water heater on my own in Australia?
    No, in Australia, it’s a legal requirement that only a licensed plumber can install a hot water system. This ensures that the installation meets all safety standards, plumbing regulations, and manufacturer’s guidelines. Incorrect installation can lead to safety risks, voided warranties, and potential penalties. Always hire a licensed professional for such tasks.
  • How do I maintain my hot water heater to ensure it lasts a long time?
    Regular maintenance includes checking for leaks, draining the tank yearly to remove sediment (for storage models), inspecting the pressure relief valve, and periodically checking the sacrificial anode. For continuous flow models, descaling is crucial. Always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for specific maintenance advice.
