If you are looking for a new gas hot water and heating system installed in the Newcastle or Lake Macquarie area then you should be talking to the experts at CDL. We are fully qualified gas plumbers who have over 15 years of experience installing new gas hot water systems throughout the area. Our reputation is second to none and when it comes to gas plumbers, this is everything.
Gas hot water systems are more expensive at the onset than electric ones but they are far more fuel efficient once installed, especially bearing in mind that a gas hot water boiler can last 12 years.
With rapidly rising energy costs gas is cheaper to run than electric, but electric is more efficient whereas gas heats the water quicker. If you already had a gas hot water system then installing a new one rather than switching makes sense. If you need any advice then give us a call as we can meet your hot water needs in any way whether it be electric or solar) and will advise on what is best for you.

CDL Plumbing and Drainage are fully licensed and experienced gas fitters that can repair and service all gas hot water and heating systems. Gas hot water systems have more moving parts and so sometimes are more prone to develop a fault or require a service that must be carried out by licensed gas fitters and engineers. In these days of rapidly rising gas prices, it’s even more paramount to keep your gas hot water system running efficiently as an inefficient one can add hundreds of dollars onto your bill so give CDL a call in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie for any gas repair or servicing needs.
If your whole gas hot water system isn’t working then you’ll need a qualified gas plumber to see if it can be repaired. Depending on its age and what the cause is, we can most likely have it up and running the same day, or if we need to get specific parts then usually only a matter of days.
Gas hot water and heating systems have many more moving and complex mechanical parts that can break down or require calibration and cleaning compared to electric so they will usually require some attention during their lifespan.

Eventually, your whole gas hot water system may need replacing. This is usually due to age and performance. Modern units will also be much more energy efficient plus if you are sticking with the same type (gas) then a replacement or upgrade isn’t as expensive as switching.
Gas systems aren’t as cheap to install as electric, but they are more energy efficient and so pay for themselves in the long run. Their average lifespans aren’t as long as an electric system but one from a reputable brand that is well maintained can last upwards of 10 years. CDL is able to supply all leading brands and can help you to find the best system for your home or business based on your needs. As certified gas engineers, we can help you choose the perfect system for your needs as well as install it to the highest Australian standards.
We can take away the old one and usually have a new one installed in one working day (sometimes two if the installation is complex) but this is often quicker if an existing gas system has already been in place.
Sometimes your existing system is working fine but just can’t cope with increased demands by a growing family, more staff or a home extension placing greater needs that outstrip the power and performance of your existing system. Most gas hot water systems are continuous flow but gas hot water systems can also utilise storage tanks too.
Upgrading your existing gas system to a more powerful one or even adding an additional electric unit, but to know what the best solution is just give CDL a call and one of their expert hot water plumbers will give help you choose the right system and give you a free no obligation quote.
Often, gas users with storage tanks find that there simply isn’t enough water and want to upgrade to a continuous flow unit. This is a fairly straightforward upgrade as there will be less installation work to do. The same is true for upgrading to a more powerful continuous flow gas hot water unit as well.
CDL will help you choose the perfect replacement gas hot water system based on your needs, budget and property, just give us a call to schedule a free no obligation consultation.
Yes, of course, you can read about that more right here
According to reviews on performance and reliability against cost is usually (depending where you look) Rinnai or Rheem, but in our experience there is usually very little difference between the top manufacturers and it’s better to get the right type of systems for your needs than to pick purely by manufacturer
The current averages are now 8 - 12 years, but a good model that’s well installed and maintained can last a lot longer than that making them very good value for money
Storage systems or continuous flow. Most modern homes have continuous flow boilers that heat the water on the spot and deliver it to taps or radiators. Storage systems have a tank that is heated but can lose heat over time so energy is lost.
This is where things can get complicated with tables and terminology, but with a quick discussion with CDL and we will narrow down your choices of what type and power size you need
If we are installing to a location where there was previously a system usually a full day. If we are creating a new space for installation then up to two days. This doesn’t include heating though, which obviously takes another day or so
Yes. All gas hot water systems will require regular maintenance and servicing to keep them running not only efficiently, but to keep them running reliably and reach their lifespans or beyond. Regularly maintained gas hot water and heating systems will last potentially years longer than systems that have never been repaired or serviced.
We don’t have a fixed price service fee for gas hot water systems as they vary greatly from brand to brand but a simple service on a gas heating system can start from as little as $XXXX
