Electric hot water systems run off your home’s power system, whether that’s electricity from the grid or solar power. Electric hot water systems are generally cheaper to purchase and install compared to other options such as gas, solar-powered, or heat pump systems, but they usually have more expensive running costs.
Some manufacturers are now producing high-efficiency electric hot water systems, giving you cheaper running costs and reduced environmental impact, so it is important to do your research when purchasing a new system.
When you’re installing a new electric hot water system, it can be tempting to try to do it yourself in order to save money. However, you risk permanently damaging the system and voiding your warranty. Therefore, you should always leave the installation to an experienced plumber and, if required, an electrician.
Unfortunately, there are things that can go wrong with any type of hot water system. You should call a plumber if you experience any of the following:
- Leaking hot water system
- Low hot water pressure
- No water coming out of the hot water tap
- Cold water coming out of the hot water tap
