Gold Coast Gas Hot Water Systems Repairs, Servicing & Installation 

Gold Coast gas hot water from Whywait PlumbingGas hot water can be a never-ending supply of hot water. You only run out of hot water if you run out of gas or if your gas hot water system is faulty.

Whywait Plumbing Services have been specialists in installing and servicing all gas hot water systems as your local, reliable and professional Gold Coast Hot Water Plumber for over 44 years, since 1976.

Above all we understand every aspect of gas hot water and how critical a properly functioning gas hot water system is to your family.

Yes, gas hot water systems are slightly more expensive to install but their running costs are lower than an electric hot water system plus they heat the water more efficiently and much faster.

Gas hot water systems using either natural gas or LPG bottle gas come in two variations:

Storage Gas Hot Water Systems

Gas storage hot water systems store the preheated hot water in an insulated tank. Water is kept at a constant ready to use temperature by a gas pilot light that burns continuously. The pilot light ignites the main burner under the tank to heat the water as required.

Similar to electric storage systems but gas storage reheat faster than electric which is why you get a faster recovery rate with gas hot water.

A disadvantage of gas storage systems is that once the storage unit runs out of the hot water, it takes time to reheat more water. This is unlikely to happen if you install a storage unit of the correct rating and recovery capacity for your needs.

Instantaneous Continuous Flow Gas Hot Water Units

Gold Coast gas hot water instantaneous gas hot water units from Whywait PlumbingGas instantaneous or continuous flow or endless on-demand units or tankless hot water units are all the same type of gas hot water systems but with different name descriptions used. Very simply the units only heat the water up when you turn a hot tap on.

Replacing Your Gas Hot Water System

Choosing from the extensive range of gas systems on the market can be challenging in ensuring you have the correctly sized system for your needs.

The advantages of gas hot water systems over electric hot water systems are:

  • The running cost of heating hot water is lower.
  • New 4-star and 5-star rated models are more energy-efficient
  • Gas costs the same all day and does not have the time-of-day cost factor that electric hot water systems have on off-peak rates.
  • All models have both natural gas and LPG versions.
  • All gas hot water units have lower greenhouse gas emissions.

When replacing “like for like” storage gas hot water systems or instantaneous gas units in Queensland you are legally required to upgrade all the valves, insulation and overflows to the current standards required by Plumbing and Drainage Act 2018 which calls into the law the relevant Australian Standards AS/NZS3500.4:2021 and AS/NZS5601.1:2013.

Natural gas units are the most environmentally friendly hot water system available, compared to electric or LPG. Always remember the higher the star rating of the gas hot water unit, the efficiency is higher and cheaper to run.

Maintenance of Gas Hot Water Systems

Gas like electricity cannot be seen although it can be smelt. Gas like electricity has dangerous consequences if installation and maintenance are not undertaken correctly.

The consequences of substandard and defective Gold Coast gas hot water installations and their servicing is potentially catastrophic.

It is not worth risking your life with a dangerous substandard installation, ensure you contact Whywait Plumbing to maintain, service or install your gas hot water system
