Your hot water system in Ballina might not be something you think about too often, but it’s not smart to wait until you have a problem to pay attention to it.

Understanding how your system works and when there might be a problem is an important responsibility as a homeowner. Here are some things you might need to call us for. 

Hot Water System Leaks

A leaking hot water tank is a problem and one that you should address as soon as possible. If you let it go, you could end up having a hard time getting enough hot water in your home and could be facing water damage around the tank that can be costly and lead to other issues. If you notice water around your tank, you need us to help you out. 

You Don’t Have Enough Hot Water

If you aren’t getting enough hot water, chances are you have a problem and could need to have your hot water system replaced. This is not something you can do on your own so it’s best to call the experts to diagnose the issue and give you recommendations about what needs to be done to remedy the problem. 

Sounds or Smells

Strange sounds or odours emanating from your hot water system are never a good thing and can be quite unnerving. Don’t ignore the problem and hope it goes away. Those sounds and smells are telling you something.

Chances are your tank is full of sediment and is on its last legs. In other cases, you may have a chemical leak so fixing the problem immediately is imperative to your safety as well as the safety of your home and family members. 

It’s Time for Maintenance

Another issue we can help you with is maintaining your hot water system. It’s best to follow manufacturer directions regarding the maintenance schedule for your system. We can diagnose problems, recommend changes that need to be made and help you decide what kind of replacement is best if you need a new hot water tank.

We can also service your system if it needs repairs or alterations made. If you’re unsure about the recommended maintenance schedule, we can help with that too.
