Hot Water System Servicing

A regular servicing schedule of your electric hot water system is essential for its ongoing maintenance. As well as being 24/7 emergency hot water electricians, Glenco can also help out with the maintenance and upkeep of your hot water system. Talk to our team and organise a servicing schedule for your new hot water system. This’ll ensure it stays in a great condition and doesn’t let you down when you need it the most. 

How to Tell if Your Hot Water System Needs a Service

There are a few tell tale signs that your hot water system needs to be checked over by one of our Sydney electricians. These can include: 

  • No hot water. If your hot water suddenly stops, there are a couple of things it could be. Check your switchboard to make sure no switches have tripped, and then give Glenco a call to come and get to the bottom of it. We’ll get your hot water system back up and running soon. 
  • Water leaking from the relief valves.
  • Rusty tank on the outside. The mineral content in water can cause rust on the outside of your hot water system tank. If there’s rust there, its an indication there could be corrosion within the tank too. BEst to get a hot water expert to check it out for you. 
  • Strange sounds coming from the hot water system. If there’s a rumbling or popping sound coming from within the tank, you should definitely get this checked out.
  • If your pilot light keeps going off, it could be an indication of an electrical problem with your hot water system. 
  • Your water temperature fluctuates up and down. This is pretty annoying for you, and could be an indication of something more serious too. 

What Happens in a Hot Water System Service

A Glenco hot water systems technician will come to your property at the designated time and carry out visual and physical checks of all the connections. They then investigate and advise if replacement of the anode is necessary. The anode is what absorbs all the chemicals and impurities in the water. This is a mechanism that is in place specifically to corrode, instead of your tank and pipes. If it is worn out and needs replacement, it will not do its job and your tank and pipes could be damaged from this corrosion.

Our hot water electricians are customer focused, and will advise you immediately of what they find during the service. Whatever is required, they will be able to get your hot water system operating as it’s meant to. If you are experiencing any of the issues above, get in touch with us on 02 9700 9996 and we’ll be able to assist you with your hot water needs. 

Reduce Energy Use of Your Hot Water System

Your hot water system is one of the bigger draws on energy in your house. If you feel it’s drawing much more than it should, there could be a problem with it. The biggest factor in this case would be a leak, so check your pressure relief valves for leakages. If there’s a leak in your electric hot water system the element is required to operate longer to heat the water to the temperature you require. This is because the hot water flows out the leak and gets replaced by cooler water, so the element kicks in again to keep the heat constant.  This uses a lot of energy and can see your power bill increase significantly.

There are a few ways you can reduce the energy consumption of hot water systems. These include: 

Hot Water Timers

Installation of timers mean your tank is only heating the water when you require it. For example, if no one is home, it is not necessary your tank be heated. You can install a timer that will prevent the tank from heating on the days and hours of the day that it’s not required. The beauty of this system is if you set up your timer correctly, you can just forget about it and hot water will always be there when you need it. Meanwhile, because the tank is heating up when you don’t need it, you’re saving on your energy bill. 

Off Peak Power Supply

Switching over to an off-peak power supply can also help your electricity bill. An off-peak power supply means your tank will only heat up at night during set time frames when energy costs are charged at a lower rate. These off-peak times are different for different areas of Sydney based on your energy provider. Get in touch and we can advise you of the most appropriate times for your specific location. If you do switch to off speak, you will need a level 2 electrician to complete work on your switchboard. Glenco are level 2 electricians and can do this for you. This option is usually only suitable for larger tanks.

Change to a Gas Hot Water System

We can also switch your electric hot water system to gas if there is gas available in your area. Gas is a cheaper power source for heating hot water systems.

Change to an Instantaneous Hot Water System

The other option is to go to an instantaneous electrical hot water system. These units only heat and use energy when the tap is turned on. These systems require three phase power. This will only use energy when you are using your water. This is opposed to a storage tank which will continually heat the water even when you are not using it.

I would like to thank Glenco for their wonderful customer service, from quoting through to installation of my air conditioner, the process was seamless. I would especially like to thank your technicians Shareen and Liam. They were efficient and very quiet, but most importantly they left my home cleaner than it was when they arrived. I would highly recommend this business, well done Glenco.

Shareen and Keenan installed a new ducted AC for our house. They were on time, professional and cleaned up after. The installation went very smooth and we are extremely happy with the result; just in time for summer! Nathan Farr from the electrical team came and ran the new AC circuit. He was very friendly and communicative of how he was going to run the cabling and it was all done in a very neat manner. Thank you team! I would highly recommend Glenco and will be using them again in the near future!

Glenco were very responsive to my request and booked my job immediately. Communication and updates were effective. Rohan (Glenco technician) effectively completed installation of five ceiling fans. He maintained social distancing and wore a mask the whole time and cleaned up when the job was complete. He was very professional and I would recommend his services in the future.

I have been overjoyed to find an electrical company that was reliable, timely, and who carried out the work required to a very high standard. My technician was very personable (clearly loves his job) and exact with the installation, so that the range hood and downlights look great. What a treat!
