Cost of Hot Water Systems

Our average time to install a hot water system is 3 hours, dependant on if it’s a straight swap or if the unit needs to be moved to a new location.  The average labour cost is $330 + GST, this is dependent on site and we provide FREE QUOTES, so it’s best to call and discuss your specific needs. 

Hot Water Systems can also range in price dependent on type, being storage hot water system or instantaneous (therwise known as continuous flow) hot water system.  Heat Pump hot water systems also have a higher up front cost however have Government rebates available for Trading the STCs on the unit.  The cost of a hot water system could range from $700 – $2200 dependant on the make and model you select.

We can also arrange ancillary Trades such as Electricians for the installation of external power points, connecting electric systems and upgrading power board circuits to allow for a higher kW element.  This saves you time in firstly finding, arranging a quote and coordinating availability.

Heat Pump Hot Water System Installation

Heat Pumps have a higher upfront cost however a lower running cost compared to electric.  The system works by heating your water through drawing on the ambient air outside the unit, like a reverse cycle air conditioner.  An example of the units energy efficiency is evident in the Hydrotherm model which uses 0.88kW of electricity per hour which generates 3.6kW of heat per hour. In comparison an electric hot water system will use 3.6kW of electricity per hour and will generate 3.6kW of heat per hour. So instead of your energy provider charging for 3.6kWh you will only be charged for 0.88kWh, dramatically reducing your bill and energy consumption.   See the link to Hydrotherm for all the FAQ on Heat Pump Installation.
