What is a Hot Water System?

A hot water system is simply a system for heating potable water in homes and commercial buildings. Typically, a hot water system will involve a system of pipes, energy sources, and heating technology. Hot water systems are responsible for heating and cooling the water we use to drink, bathe, cook, etc.

Unfortunately, hot water systems are also quite sensitive, especially as they age and begin to break down. For modern systems, the occasional repair for small leaks and other little issues is worth the cost. However, for older systems or particularly damaged systems, it may be necessary to completely replace your hot water system. This process should always be performed by a professional who is experienced with all of the different types of hot water heaters found in Australian homes today. Luckily, the team at Lucid Plumbing is available to take on your hot water system repairs, replacement, and installation needs.

Types of Hot Water Systems

There are several types of hot water systems that you’ll find throughout Australian homes. Lucid Plumbing’s staff of talented plumbers have worked with all five of these types of hot water heaters.

  • Gas hot water heater. This is one of the most common hot water systems found in Australian homes. To put it simply, these hot water heaters feature a water tank and are heated by using leftover natural gas fumes in your home. Larger properties may need to install a gas line and use much more gas to power these hot water systems. Lucid Plumbing offers a variety of different gas hot water heater services and products to suit your unique household’s needs. This option is not the most environmentally friendly, and many Australian households have opted to replace their old gas system with a newer eco-friendly system once the old system begins to show significant signs of age and disrepair.
  • Electric hot water heater. Another common hot water system found in Australian households, electric systems are an excellent choice for homeowners who want to be a bit more environmentally friendly and dependable. This type of system is simply powered by electricity and can also include tankless heaters and more traditional heaters.
  • Solar hot water heater. Solar hot water heaters are an excellent choice for homeowners who want to take a more holistic and environmentally friendly approach to heat their water. This type of hot water system is efficient and safe. These heaters are powered by the sun and are an excellent choice if you already have solar panels installed in your home. As with many of the hot water systems we’ve mentioned, this is a very environmentally friendly option. The only downside to this system is that in addition to water system maintenance, you’ll also need to maintain your solar panel system as well.
  • Tankless hot water heater. Also known as an on-demand water heater, this relatively new type of water-heating technology is quite revolutionary. Tankless water heaters don’t have tanks and instead use very hot coils that fill up with water. This type of heater is great for heating up water as fast as possible, even for really large households who require a lot of hot water at one time. Tankless hot water heaters can also be powered with gas or electricity.
  • Instantaneous hot water heater. Also known as a continuous hot water heater, this excellent alternative to more traditional hot water tanks provides a continuous flow of warmed-up water for as long as it is needed. This system is quite energy efficient, since power is not used to heat the water that is stored in the tank and is instead heated on-demand. This could save you quite a bit of money in the long run when it comes to power or energy bills.

With so many different types of hot water heaters used by Australian homeowners today, it’s vital to have a plumber on hand who knows the ins and outs of hot water heater repair. Our team of talented plumbers and drainage specialists are experienced and specially trained to handle any repair or maintenance need when it comes to hot water heaters.

From booking online to the completion of the job was seamless. Ben arrived super quick and was the utmost professional and really new his stuff. He took the time to explain what the problem was and what he was going to do.

Very happy customer! I can't thank Ben, Fouad & Bradley enough for fixing an electrical fault (and dodgy wiring from times gone by) to make my home safer (as well as installing some additional points, tidying up some others and installing new interconnected smoke alarms).

Great experience, they actually turned up when they said they would. The guy took the time to look for leaks other than the obvious one, and found them. Saving us a return visit. Pricing is fair. Would definitely recommend.
