Do you need hot Water Repairs and Maintenance on your solar hot water system or electric hot water systems? Is it time for a replacement hot water element or hot water thermostat ?
We all take for granted just how much we need and use Hot Water Heater within the Home. So many of us leave it until our hot water disappears or something goes wrong that we take action to repair or replace the system. If your hot water heater is not lasting as long as your morning shower or takes forever to heat you might want to think about repairs.
That’s where Dunwrights Electrical Darwin can help. If your hot water element has failed or the hot water thermostat temperature control is leaving you with cold water give Dunwrights a call to assist with repairs.
These are the sure signs of problems:
- No Hot Water – Cause: The element may have failed and needs replacing
- No Hot Water – Cause: The thermostat may have shorted and needs replacing
- Power is ‘tripping’ when the hot water system is turned on – element burned out.
Even if you have solar heating on your home, sometimes problems can occur due to check valves being stuck, mixing valves set incorrectly, electric boosters not working, thermostat settings being too low or your solar collector having failed. Realistically you shouldn’t need the booster during dry season and if you do there is another issue, you should have more than enough solar energy for water heating of your storage tank.
We’ll check the thermostat and heating settings to ensure your hot water heater system is running to its full capacity and not overloading your electricity bill by running during the peak periods – whether its electric heating or a solar water heater with a booster. Because water conducts electricity, water pooling around the base of your water heater is potentially dangerous which we can advise of during the booking. We can also install timers promote energy savings that lower your power bill!
