We are affordable, professional, friendly and reliable. We complete all installations on time and within budget. Here are some more reasons, in case you were in any doubt that CDL are the leading hot water installation plumbers in Newcastle:
Eventually, your whole hot water system may need replacing. This will mainly be due to age and performance. Modern units will also be much more energy efficient plus if you are sticking with the same type (electric) then a replacement or upgrade isn’t as expensive as switching.
Electric systems are the cheapest to install and also have the longest lifespans so are a good option if you already have an electric hot water boiler in your home or business. 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.
We can take away the old one and usually have a new one installed within a few hours as electric systems are easier to install than gas, especially when there has been a previous system already 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. Booster systems can be added or a replacement boiler unit can be installed to upgrade your hot water capabilities. Call CDL to get an obligation-free quote and some advice on pricing and how best to upgrade your existing electric hot water system.
CDL will help you choose the perfect replacement electric hot water system based on your needs, budget and property, just give us a call to schedule a free no obligation consultation.
Electric hot water systems are cheaper to buy and install than gas or solar, prices can start from as little as $300 up to $1500 but don’t worry as CDL will be giving you an accurate quote on the system that best fits your needs
No. Gas is more efficient for its cost, especially as electric energy prices have risen dramatically (although gas is rising quicker) but they are less costly from the outset. Also, they last longer and generally require less maintenance
There is no definitive answer to this, but here are the major differences and factors that should be considered.
• Gas hot water systems are more eco-friendly
• Gas hot water systems are more energy efficient to run
• Electric systems are generally cheaper at the outset
• Electric systems have a longer average lifespan by about 5 - 7 years
• Electric systems store hot water in tanks (and can have boosters) but most gas systems are continuous flow
Averagely 10 - 15 years. This is obviously affected by the brand, its usage and how well it’s been maintained. Electric hot water systems have the longest lifespan with the cheapest maintenance
Lifespans (as we have seen above) are averagely 10 - 15 years but you may need a replacement hot water boiler or controller timer sooner than that. The only real way to know is to have an expert like one of CDL’s hot water plumbers inspect it. Depending on its use, brand, and how well it’s been maintained will all have an effect on its lifespan. See above for signs that your electric hot water system needs replacing or upgrading
