Rheem gas instantaneous hot water heater installation at Chatswood

Gas instant hot water installation

We were contacted by a Chatswood customer who noticed their old gas hot water heater had started leaking.  Gas hot water specialist, Steve, arranged to attend the property that afternoon to inspect and fix the problem.

Once onsite at the Chatswood property, Steve performed a series of tests to ascertain why the gas hot water heater was leaking. He quickly found that the internal storage cylinder had split. Unfortunately, the price to repair the old cylinder would have cost more than installing a new hot water system. It made economical sense to purchase a new hot water system, complete with 10-year warranty and energy-saving features.

Switching from a gas storage hot water heater to a wall-mounted instantaneous gas system.

Steve discussed replacement hot water heater options and the customer opted to convert from a storage gas hot water heater to an instantaneous gas hot water system.

Steve discussed hot water system replacement options with the customer, taking into consideration their budget and usage requirements. They decided on the Rheem Gas Metro 26 (Model 876T26NF). Scroll down for features of this hot water system.

The customer was happy with Steve’s recommendation and, within an hour or so, they were back enjoying trouble-free gas hot water.

Save money and employ the local experts

Hot water is our business – it’s not a sideline. Based in Northern Sydney, each year we install and repair thousands of hot water systems in homes and businesses on the North Shore and across Sydney.

Don’t waste money employing multiple trades.

Did you know that a new hot water system is a big investment and often needs the installation and setup of plumbing, gas and electric components? This requires the experience and qualifications of both a licensed plumber and a licensed electrician.

At Cheapa Hot Water, we are licensed and qualified to undertake any plumbing and electrical work required to complete your hot water system installation or repair quickly, and within budget.

Plumbers who do not specialise in the installation of hot water heaters may need to outsource the electrical work required to another tradesperson, thereby holding up your hot water system repair or installation, adding extra expense due to additional call out fees charged by employing two tradespeople.

Don’t risk voiding your hot water heater warranty

Additionally, most manufacturers won’t cover the terms of your hot water system warranty if it isn’t installed by a licensed hot water technician or qualified plumber. Hot water tanks are an expensive appliance so why would you risk voiding your warranty by installing it yourself or employing the services of someone who isn’t licensed?

Save money today by calling our Sydney hot water experts. Our trucks are on the road right now stocked with thousands of spare parts to repair and service your hot water heater quickly.
