Replacing an old or broken hot water system can be a costly endeavour. However, by calculating the cost of a new system in advance, you can make sure that you are getting the best deal possible. In this blog, we will outline eight steps to help you calculate Hot Water System Price Sydney and the different ways we at Sydney Hot Water Systems can help you out.
How to Determine the Cost of your Water System
There are several things you need to consider when trying to determine the cost of a hot water system. Household needs, unit type and size, installation costs, and further costs, are all things you need to keep in mind when trying to do the math of how much it will all cost.
The first step is to determine if your current water heater is large enough and energy-efficient. You could be spending too much on your home’s water heating if you don’t evaluate this. Our professional staff of trained service specialists can analyze your family’s true requirements with day-to-day hot water usage. Different lifestyles and routines affect the type or size of the water heater that is appropriate for a family. Oftentimes some households continue to use the water system that was in place when they first moved into their homes. However, it is not always ideal to use the same water system since it may not be suited to household needs.
Unit Type & Size
The second step is to choose the right tank-type water heater. There are many types of water heaters on the market, and you need to select one that is best for your needs. Each different water system unit will affect the price. Depending on this, costs will vary. The size you require will be based on the size of your household and your water usage. Whereas the unit will be based on the types of energy available to you – electric, gas or solar.
Electric Water Heaters
Electric hot water systems use electricity to heat the water. Tanks can contain anywhere between 24 and 400 litres of water. These sorts of systems are usually priced from $450 to $1,800, with bigger storage tanks earning higher prices. Electric water heaters are great because they are easy to maintain. They also come in a variety of sizes to fit most homes and can be installed almost anywhere in your home.
Gas Hot Water Systems
Gas hot water systems burn natural gas for energy, which heats up the water. Gas water heaters can range from anywhere between $850 to $1,500. Bigger tanks will generally cost more. Gas water systems are good because they provide a continuous flow of hot water. They can also be cost-effective in the long run.
Solar Water Heaters
Solar hot water systems are increasingly popular as more consumers become concerned about the environment. These systems are especially prevalent in locations that receive a lot of sunshine throughout the year. Solar water heaters may be more costly to install than other technologies, so you would expect to pay above $3,600 for the system.
Water heaters with heat pumps operate much like heating systems of the same style, extracting heat from the ambient air to warm the water in the tank. This form of the water system is great for energy efficiency, which makes these water heaters affordable to operate. This type of system will typically run between $3,300 and $4,000. As with the other styles, larger tanks come with higher prices.
The next step is to consider the installation costs. Installation fees for water heaters vary, so it’s important that you get a few estimates before making your decision. Generally, the installation will cost between $200 and $750. The good thing about us at Sydney Hot Water Systems is that we have a standard fee of $440 for every installation.
A tempering valve mixes hot and cold water to produce the ideal temperature for distributing water to sinks and showers. If your home doesn’t have one, you will need to install a tempering valve to make sure the water is consistent and safe for all members of your family. The cost of this installation ranges from $200 to $500. However, we offer a standard fee of $185 for tempering valve installation.
