New hot water system installation at Neutral Bay

Hot water heater installers North Shore.

We received an early morning call from a Property Manager at a Lower North Shore real estate agency, asking us to attend a Neutral Bay rental property where the tenant had reported they woke up to no hot water.

We contacted the tenants directly and, because they had to go to work, gave us permission to pick up the key from the real estate agent to access the property.  Within an hour or so, we were onsite at the Neutral Bay unit to assess the source of the problem.

After running a series of tests on the existing, 20+ year old, hot water system, it became clear there were multiple problems.   Unfortunately, manufacturers stop producing spare parts for old hot water systems so it’s virtually impossible to fix them.

We contacted the Property Manager and explained the situation. After contacting the property owner, we were given approval to supply and install a new hot water system.  We opted for a tank the same size as the old one and recommended the Rheem 80 litre single element electric hot water system (model 481080V7). This compact hot water heater is a great option for most apartments as it doesn’t take up much space. It was the perfect size for the small laundry in the Neutral Bay apartment.

Save time and money by employing a local hot water expert

Did you know that often the repair and installation of a hot water system requires the expertise and qualifications of both a licensed plumber and a licensed electrician?

We are qualified to undertake any plumbing and electrical work required to ensure your hot water heater is repaired 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.

Your hot water heater is an expensive appliance. Don’t risk voiding your 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?
