Hot Water Systems

Electric Storage

Electric storage hot water systems keep your water piping hot all year round, and are the trusted choice for households across WA. This is because they simply work—no messing about, no worrying. Your electric storage hot water system stores you water in an insulated tank, which is set to a pre-programmed temperature. The water within the tank is heater by either one or two electric elements. Think of it like a giant kettle that keeps you water hot.

LET’S LOOK AT ELECTRIC STORAGE:

WILL IT SUIT YOUR HOME?

An electric storage hot water system is the trusted choice for many homes, and is a good place to start when looking for a new hot water system. Cheaper to buy and install than a gas or instant hot water system, they’re an inexpensive solution for the modern household. They don’t need a gas connection, and they’re space-efficient too, making them a good choice when upgrading or replacing an ageing hot water solution.

Frequently Asked Questions

A gas hot water system works by heating your water directly in the tank. It works much the same way that a kettle does, just on a larger scale. It uses one or two copper elements that heat up, warming up the water within the tank. This hot water then travels through the pipes to your desired tap.

The type of electric storage hot water system you choose for your home comes down to a few key variables: the number of people in your house, how often you use your hot water, and your budget. We can help you work these out, and give you the information you need to choose the hot water system that best suits your household.

The size of the electric hot water system you buy depends on the number of people living in your household, and how often you use it. A good rule of thumb is:

  • 1-2 people: 90L – 150L
  • 2-3 people: 150L – 190L
  • 3-4 people: 190L – 230L
  • 5+ people: 230L or more

Our electric storage hot water systems start at around $823 for a 50L storage system and increase from there.

Yes, an electric storage hot water system is a relatively easy and efficient option when installing a new hot water system. When compared to other options, all you need is the space and an electricity connection. If you’re looking at this option for your home, we can come and take a look at your space to determine what’s needed to install a new system.

If the water coming from your electric storage hot water system isn’t hot, it could be for a number of reasons.

  • Your hot water tank might be some distance from your tap. Run your hot water tap until it becomes hot. Be sure to collect the water you run and re-use it on your garden.
  • Check to see that it’s still connected to a power source.
  • Check the thermostat to make sure it’s set at a hot enough temperature.
  • How many people have used the hot water recently? You might simply has used it all. In that case, you’ll need to wait until your tank refills and reheats.
  • There may be another issue. If you’ve tried these solutions and there’s still no hot water, give Plumb It Right a call on 08 9577 2786 immediately.
