No one likes to have a cold shower, especially on a cold winter morning. When you get a good hot water system installed on your property, you expect it to function well.

However, there are times when you may find that the hot water in your home is insufficient. Sometimes, this could be because there are a larger number of people in the house using hot water simultaneously, causing the shortage.But there are other reasons why this could happen such as:

 Reasons Why You Don’t Have Hot Water

 If you find that there is no hot water in your home on a regular basis, it means there is something wrong with your hot water heater. These problems are best handled by professionals like us at Australia Wide Plumbing and Electrical.There could be a number of different reasons why your hot water system isn’t heating such as:

  • Defective Thermostat– The thermostat connected to your hot water system tells the elements exactly when to heat up. It also monitors the water temperature. If there is a malfunction in the thermostat, this could result in no hot water.
  • Water Leak– This is another common reason why you may not have hot water in your home. If there is a leak in the hot water tank or in any of the pipes that lead out from it, this could result in a shortage of hot water in your home.

How Often Should You Change Your Hot Water System

Hot water systems are expensive appliances and this is why it makes sense to ensure that you get the best quality product and that you maintain it well. Many property owners want to know how often they should change their hot water system. This is a very subjective aspect, because a number of different factors can impact the condition and longevity of your hot water system. The lifespan of the systemwould be entirely dependent on factors such as:
• Quality of the system
• Type of product
• How it has been used
• Whether it has been maintained with regularity
• Quality of water in your local area

It’s a very logical aspect that hot water systems that are more expensive and manufactured by reputable brands will be of a better quality. These systems can easily last for about 10 years. As mentioned, this duration would be dependent on the above factors.

One of the most common reasons why hot water systems start malfunctioning or stop working completely is due to corrosion in the tank. If the quality of water in your area isn’t up to the mark and there is hard water, it can impact the longevity of the hot water system. It means that you would have to replace it sooner than later.

Signs That Your Hot Water System Needs Replacement

Most systems will show some signs before they stop working entirely. Being aware of what the signs are is one of the best ways to determine when it is time to replace your hot water system:

• The water coming out of the tap is murky, cloudy or brown due to rusty pipes.
• The temperature of the water is too low
• The water doesn’t get heated up at all
• No water comes out of the heater
• The heater makes rattling/banging sounds-debris and sedimentation in the tank

While all of these signs indicate that there is some problem in the system, it may not always be indicative that a replacement is required. It is important to call in professionals like us for an inspection. We will carry out a detailed assessment before determining whether you’ll need regular maintenance or a complete replacement of the system.
