The Cost Of Installing A Hot Water System
Depending on your needs, budget and fuel source, the cost of the hot water system will vary.

There are a few other things you should consider when deciding on a new hot water system, including:
- If you want an instant or storage hot water system
- Tank capacity
- Energy efficiency rating or the minimum energy performance standard
- Running costs and installation
- Ongoing cost of maintenance

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if my hot water system needs replacing?
Determining whether your hot water system needs replacing can be based on several factors. Firstly, consider the age of the system, as most have a lifespan of 8 to 12 years. If your system is approaching or exceeding this range, it’s worth considering a replacement. Additionally, signs such as insufficient hot water supply, frequent repairs, rusty or discoloured water, leaks or water damage, unusual noises and concerns about energy efficiency can indicate the need for a new system. If you notice any of these indicators, it’s recommended to consult with our professional plumbers to assess the condition of your system and provide guidance on whether a replacement is necessary.
Do I need to service my hot water system?
Yes, it is important to regularly service your hot water system. Regular servicing helps ensure the optimal performance, longevity and safety of your system. During a service, we will inspect and clean various components, check for any potential issues or leaks, test the pressure and temperature settings and flush out sediment or mineral buildup. By servicing your hot water system, you can identify and address problems early on, prevent major breakdowns, maintain energy efficiency and potentially extend the lifespan of your system. It is generally recommended to have your hot water system serviced annually or as per the manufacturer’s guidelines but we can provide specific recommendations based on your system’s make and model.
Does the size of the hot water system matter?
When deciding on a new hot water system, you need to consider how many people live in your home, how much water you typically use and what time of day you usually use your hot water. For more advice or assistance with hot water installation, Brisbane homeowners can just give Paul’s Plumbing a call.
What are the requirements for hot water in Brisbane?
Hot water installation in Brisbane and throughout QLD must adhere to specific regulations to address health and safety concerns. To curb bacterial growth, stored hot water in residential buildings must be maintained at a minimum temperature of 60 degrees Celsius, surpassing the 55°C threshold for bacterial proliferation. These standards align with recommendations from the World Health Organisation and other Australian jurisdictions.
To prevent scalding incidents, the Queensland Government mandates that hot water delivered to taps and showerheads should not surpass 50 degrees Celsius. This balance between bacterial control and scalding prevention ensures a safe and comfortable hot water usage experience in Brisbane households.
