Whether your water heating system isn’t working as well as it used to, or an entirely new hot water system is required, the reliable team at Alan Oxford’s Plumbing and Electrical can resolve the issues you face. To help you recognise the potential causes of plumbing problems that might require a gas plumber, and to offer you insight into the benefits of our services, we’ve compiled a go-to guide for all things concerning hot water repairs and installations.

Reasons You Might Need Hot Water Repairs

While regular servicing and maintenance of your hot water system is the best way to identify potential repair requirements, we recommend that you remain aware of the following three situations.

Unfamiliar Sounds

A sure-fire way to determine the effectiveness of your hot water system is whether it operates without making any hissing, banging or pounding sounds. If you hear these noises, there may be dislodged or damaged parts making hot water repairs a necessity, and a gas plumber can diagnose and address these issues.

Inconsistent Water Temperature 

Does it seem like your showers aren’t as warm as they used to be? Your hot water system may be experiencing a malfunction in the heat exchange process and require consequent repairs. These issues may go unnoticed for some time, and as such, it’s recommended that you maintain a regular servicing and maintenance schedule to prevent these issues from occurring.


Unfortunately, even the highest quality hot water systems are subject to standard wear and tear and will require repairs at some point in time. If your hot water system hasn’t undergone any maintenance for five years, it’s recommended that a licensed gas plumber undertakes a major service to see if repairs are required.


Why Install a New Hot Water System

Sometimes a repair might not be the right option, as each year, new hot water systems emerge with each system being more efficient and reliable than the last. Persisting with older systems can become costly, with hot water repairs becoming a recurring necessity. By instead opting for a hot water installation of an entirely new system, you’ll encounter a wide range of benefits.

Newer systems are more efficient in their heating, and many are connected to solar panels for heat generation. These hot water systems use gas or electricity as a supplement to the heat provided by solar panels, and this naturally requires far less energy consumption, being reflected in a reduced energy bill.

A new hot water installation will also offer your home a consistent water temperature and will ensure the floods and leaks caused by older malfunctioning systems don’t occur. Installing a new system will also see your water be heated more quickly, wasting less time and water which is reflected in a reduction in water consumption and hence water bills. Additionally, when an expert gas plumber from Alan Oxford’s provides their services, you’ll benefit from a 100% satisfaction guarantee as a result of our dedication to each of our customers.
