Electric Hot water repairs
Having trouble with your electric hot water or electric boosted solar hot water? Are you unsure whether to call a plumber or an electrician?
Lets see if we can help.
Firstly if there is water leaking and this is an emergency then we would recommend turning off the water supply to the hot water tank, switch off the circuit breaker in the switchboard and call your local plumber.
When is it time to call an Electrician?
If the following problems are occurring then your first choice is an electrician;
No hot water
If you have no hot water then you should first check in your switchboard to see if the circuit breaker has been tripped. If this is the case try re-setting the circuit breaker. If the circuit breaker has not tripped then it may be a case of the thermostat or heating element in your hot water developing an issue. Time to call us and we can fault find where the problem is.
Circuit breaker tripping in the switchboard
If your circuit breaker is tripping then there may be an overload occurring on this circuit which could be coming from the heating elements or another issue occurring in the wiring. Time to call us and we can fault find where the problem is.
Running out of hot water
If you have noticed that your hot water has been running out then there may be an issue with your off peak element which when worn can trip and disconnect, this leaves your boost element working overtime to try and heat water on demand which can cost you considerably more in power consumption. Time to call us and we can fault find where the problem is.
