Useful Advice on Water Heaters
Another member has shared tips on buying water heaters. He says, “Purchasing any type of water heater can be a big decision, but if you specifically know you want a gas water heater then you need to know which are the best ones out there. Whether you chose to heat your water with electric or gas, tanks come in different sizes and qualities, and you want to get one that will last you a long time.”
He shares, “Tanks have improved over the years, and if you purchase a new home then chances are you will get a tank that is efficient and safe. However, if your home and current tank is old, you may want to consider replacing it. If your water tank is heated with gas, the good news is that new technology has improved and these are more energy-efficient and do not let heat escape through thin walls anymore. New models have also eliminated the need for the pilot light to be constantly burning to maintain water temperature. The new gas hot water heaters in Brisbane are also 5%-10% more efficient.”
He continues, “Using natural gas over propane is less expensive and burns cleaner. Typically track homes have natural gas and urban houses on land will have to have a propane tank on their property that is refilled every few weeks or months. The only downside to using a gas heater is that they lose some energy in exhaust gases, but they are still cheaper to use.”
Forums for Everybody
Explore the forums and you’ll find answers to your vital questions. For instance, you’ll get advice on the fair price of plumbers services and products. Members are ready and willing to lend an ear and share their two cents regarding subjects ranging from hot water cylinders to water heaters.
One member gave this valuable advice to a co-member asking if he was getting ripped off by his plumber: “Every plumber will deal with quotes differently, but again I feel good practice will itemise say big items from installation – but many plumbers prefer to just give one price as customer cherry pick and say they will provide their own big appliances – but expect the plumber to pick it up and carry a warranty on it.”
His advice? “If your plumber belongs to a professional organisation like Master Plumbers then you can also put in a complaint to them – see their website for details – but again try talking to your plumber first.”
Different Folks, Different Strokes
There are many threads on the website discussing various topics. These issues include where and how to find the best plumbing services, what to do with faulty hot water cylinders, where to buy the best water heaters, and other useful information.
One member says, “Natural gas heaters are most popular in the United States because gas is cheaper for heating water than electricity, propane, and solar energy. Also, most cities and towns have the gas conveniently piped throughout. Some homes are equipped for electric or propane and do not have a natural gas outlet available. If this is the case and you have gas stove it may be a good idea to extend the gas line to your water heater.”
