There’s nothing worse than heading for a shower on a cold winter morning only to discover that the hot water system is broken. Or going to wash up after dinner and being greeting with an icy torrent. On days like these, you need to call in fast, efficient and reliable professionals. Getting your hot water flowing again is the number one priority of Twin Electrics & Plumbing when we are called out for emergency hot water repairs.
Why Might A Hot Water System Break?
There are many reasons why a hot water system may just stop working one day. However, the good news is that it is possible to minimise the risk of you and your family or place of business being without hot water unexpectedly. Age, faulty components and poor maintenance are the three most common causes of broken hot water systems. Address each of these and you can keep your hot water running all winter.
As with all commodities, hot water systems have a limited lifespan. While they should reliably provide hot water for years, as the water system ages, more regular repairs may become necessary. As a system reaches the end of its working time, we recommend you replace the entire system prior to it finally ceasing to work to ensure a smooth transition and minimise any time without access to hot water.
Within every hot water system, there are many different components. Any one of these failing or becoming damaged could compromise the entire structure. This may result in hot water not being produced or it may affect the efficiency and running costs of the system. Maintenance checks can identify elements which are not functioning correctly and replace them to improve efficiency and reduce costs.
Finally, the system may just be poorly maintained. A well-maintained water system will last far longer than one which is not regularly serviced. Small problems can be fixed as they are discovered rather than waiting for them to accumulate, resulting in larger, more expensive and more time-consuming repairs.
How Can I Keep My Hot Water System Running?
Rather than calling out the professionals to fix a problem, why not organise a maintenance plan? Preventative services of your hot water system, once a year, will minimise the risk of your system breaking. These maintenance checks can repair any minor issues and keep the equipment in good condition. This is the most cost-effective way to keep your hot water hot. In addition, when the hot water system is reaching the end of its natural lifespan, always inevitable, we can advise you to replace it before the forthcoming breakdown.
While we recommend you book in for a maintenance check of your hot water system before winter beings, it’s not too late. Call Twin Electrics & Plumbing today and speak to one of our qualified professionals.
