Hot Water Service

About Hot Water

The highly experienced and professional team at Raymond Plumbing are very familiar with the installation, repair or replacement of hot water systems in Cairns.

Whether you need repairs on your existing hot water system, a new system or a replacement, we can cater to your needs with a complete installation of the system and related plumbing.

We can advise you on the pros and cons of the hot water system that would best suit your needs, which may include storage or instantaneous systems, using electricity, gas or solar as a power source. Because we’re a local company who cares about our customers’ needs, we are able to gauge exactly what’s needed to cater your hot water system to your needs, budget and preferences in sunny Cairns. 

Some types and varieties of hot water systems include:

Electric Hot Water System

Any system that’s powered by electricity falls into this category. This is the affordable and generally reliable option and still quite popular, despite not necessarily being the best choice for Cairns hot water system needs.

Gas Hot Water System

Gas hot water is hugely popular amongst our customers. Gas is affordable, hugely reliable and these days, it’s really safe.

Solar hot water system

Solar is the way of the future and if you’re able to afford the initial costs, it’s the most recommended hot water system available.

Because of the rising cost of power in Cairns, solar hot water is by far the most economical choice in the long run. It’s also the most environmentally friendly option and if you back your system up with battery storage, it’s extremely reliable.

Mains pressure hot water system

Hot water systems powered by gas or electricity that are pressured by mains water are still the most common systems in Cairns. These systems collect water from the mains and store it in a tank and that water is then heated. The water is then pushed out to the outlets (taps, shower head etc) using the pressure exerted by the inlet valve coming from the water mains but capped at 500kpa, so the pressure of the hot water system is similar to the pressure from the cold water, but not always identical.

Heat pump systems

With a heat pump system or ‘air-source heat pumps’, as they are also known, heat from the surrounding air is used to heat the water. It’s a form of renewable energy, but does not require solar panels or similar to work. Despite using electricity, this method of heating water is more efficient than conventional systems, meaning you’ll save money and help the environment at the same time.

Extra Solutions for Commercial Customers:

Zip Heaters / Instantaneous hot water systems

Zip Heaters – also known as Instantaneous or continuous hot water systems – are not the cheapest option, but they are truly amazing if you want constant hot water when and where you need it and do not want to pay to heat water you don’t use. These systems don’t store water like conventional systems; instead, they heat the water just before it is delivered to the faucet, which means you never run out of hot water and you’re not heating a big barrel full of water each day that you might not completely use up. Zip heater systems are ideal for commercial kitchenettes, where there’s a demand for quick hot water but no need to have large amounts. They are also perfect for small homes that have limited storage space and no room for a hot water tank.

Thermostatic mixing valves

While this is not technically a hot water system, it’s relevant as it’s something that’s usually installed at the same time as any system. These valves ensure your water is perfectly mixed to prevent your hot water exceeding a specific temperature. This is a great idea for schools and daycare centres, hospitals or aged care facilities, as well as hotels/motels or anywhere else the risk of hot water burns exists.

Depending on your needs, you may need a repair, replacement or installation.

For a replacement or installation, just give us a call and we can install your own purchased system as soon as possible, or if you want us to organise a specific system for you, just call with a bit of time in advance of when you want it and we’ll be able to order it in for you and install it soon.

For repairs of any gas, electric or solar hot water system, we stock our trucks with most common parts, so you can be sure we’ll almost definitely have the parts we need to fix your system straight away.

There’s nothing as lovely as coming home after a long, hard day at work and jumping in a relaxing shower and it’s a horrible feeling when you’re standing there in the cold and realise there’s no hot water!

We want to prevent you from feeling that, so give us a call today on (07) 4032 0089 for all your hot water system needs.
