Had Joe out to replace our hot water system today.fantastic job, efficient, clear communication and took us through some tips for getting the best out of the new system. This is the second time I’ve used Jetset Plumbing and I can’t fault them. Additionally we had Matt out a few weeks ago for toilet and taps, it was a big job and Matt was great, took us through everything. Both Joe and Matt were professional, respectful and polite. Great plumbers
Prompt, professional and polite service from Owen. Very happy with the installation of the new hot water system. Highly recommend Jetset Plumbing.
We have had the best experience with jet set! Joe came out promptly and was very helpful, providing us with many options. He was very thorough allowing us to make an informative choice. We then met with Rhys who did an awesome install and had great customer service. Would highly recommend these guys.
Had a great experience with Owen and the team at Jetset Plumbing! Our hot water heater blew in the morning and they were able to come out that day and replace it. Owen tested the heater and found a fault, then called the company and a replacement part was delivered and installed within 40 minutes! Couldn’t be happier with the service and workmanship - thanks Owen and team!
A huge Thank You to Joe, Bailey, Ryan and Lalo for the excellent work installing our new Hot Water System. All work was completed in a highly efficient and professional manner, including clean-up after completion of work. JetSet have completed a number of plumbing and electrical works for us, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. All staff are always friendly and keep us informed of progress, while maintaining the highest quality of work.
I would highly recommend Joe. He was punctual, informative and completed the works quickly and professionally.
I needed my hot water cylinder replaced and selected Jetset Plumbing for a number of reasons. The receptionist was most helpful. There was no surcharge and she arranged for an assessment to be given. The following day Mathew and Nathan arrived to complete the job. They were efficient ' friendly and explained the process to me. They cleaned up any mess they had made and I would highly recommend them for any plumbing job. The company also offers seniors/pensioner discounts.
Highly recommend this company staff member Joe came out and assist our gas unit due to lossing hot water. Joe was outstanding professional and very friendly with a great personality. Thanks Joe for your great service 👍 👏
Lachlan and Windom replaced our hot water system arrived on time very professional, polite and friendly and would recommend Jetset plumbing to friends and family
Ben came out and diagnosed our plumbing issues quickly and efficiently. Was keen and able to answer other questions we had, and also gave advice on our hot water system and water pressure issues that we weren’t aware of.
Many thanks to Joe for installing a new Rinnai 26 (LPG) gas hot water system. Our old system, of which we got 15 years out of, finally called it a day. Joe was punctual and friendly and was able to install at the same time he came out to do the inspection. Highly recommended if you require a speedy response to a failing gas hot water system.
Joe came to replace our old broken gas hot water system with a brand new one. He was on time, professional and super friendly. He even worked around my 4 little children, giving them a go of the tools and answering their thousand and one questions. I was very happy with his service. He also gave us the best price and beat all other quotes.

How do Electric Hot Water Heaters Work?

Electric hot water systems are still the most common type of water heater used in Queensland homes. Of these, storage hot water systems are the most popular, as opposed to instantaneous hot water systems, because they can service a greater demand.


Electric hot water systems

Electric Storage Hot Water System

In an electric storage hot water heater, cold water flows through to the storage unit and is then heated to a set temperature by internal electric heating elements. As it is heated, the water rises to the top of the tank where it remains stored until there is a distribution demand.


Electric Instant Hot Water System

Otherwise known as continuous flow heaters, instantaneous electric hot water systems work by heating water on demand. When a hot water tap is turned on, cold water flows through a heat exchanger in order to provide hot water.

These are more efficient than their storage counterparts, but they do have a higher upfront cost. Instant hot water systems can also have a lag in their hot water supply during high demand periods; the more taps turned on, the slower the hot water will be.

Why Choose Electric Hot Water?

We understand choosing the right hot water system can be difficult, especially with a greater push for environmentally friendly households.

The main selling point for these electric storage heaters is their low upfront cost. Often, new hot water systems are bought when the old one has failed, or is at least close to it. Electric hot water systems make that initial purchase far more affordable; it also helps that they are generally easier to install and last for at least 10-15 years.

If the running costs are making you hesitant, there are some storage systems that can be connected to off-peak power periods. This restricts the times at which the heating system can actually heat. Though these periods are often between the hours of 11pm to 7am, meaning the units need to be larger as they cannot continuously heat throughout the day.

What To Consider Before Going Electric

While the upfront costs might be lower, there are important factors to consider when looking to buy an electric hot water system.

Electric hot water systems are not the most efficient or environmentally friendly system on the market. The water in these storage units must be kept to a minimum of 60°C to prevent bacterial growth. This means there is a constant demand for energy use, making the running costs higher than gas or solar hot water systems.

These water tanks are also large, often needing to hold at least 120-160 litres of water, if not more depending on your household needs. This means they take up space. Though there are both indoor and outdoor options for these storage units, space is not always in abundance for some homeowners.


Electric Hot Water System Maintenance

Electric hot water systems should be serviced every five years to ensure longevity and provide maximum functionality.

Whether your system needs a pressure test, a clean out, or even replacement parts, Jetset Plumbing is ready to help. Our electric hot water specialists are experts at accurately diagnosing any issues your hot water system might have and providing solutions that suit your needs.

FAQs: Electric Hot Water Systems

Electric hot water systems use electric heating elements to heat water stored in a tank. When you turn on a hot water tap, the heated water from the tank is delivered to the tap.
Electric systems are often more energy-efficient compared to some other options. They are also relatively easy to install and can be more affordable upfront.
The main types include storage tank systems, where water is stored and continuously heated, and tankless systems that heat water on-demand as it passes through a heating element.
Regular maintenance involves flushing the tank to remove sediment buildup and checking for signs of corrosion. It's recommended to consult the manufacturer's guidelines or ask a plumber.
The lifespan varies, but well-maintained electric hot water systems can last around 10-15 years or more.
This could be due to a faulty heating element, a tripped circuit breaker, a malfunctioning thermostat, or issues with the electrical connections.
Electric systems can be efficient, especially newer models with improved insulation and energy-saving features. However, they might be less efficient than some other options like solar or heat pump systems.
You can adjust the thermostat to a lower temperature, insulate the tank, and consider using a timer to heat water during off-peak hours.
Yes, many electric hot water systems offer off-peak or controlled load options, which can be more cost-effective for heating water during non-peak hours.
Yes, you can switch to an electric system, but it might require adjustments to your plumbing and electrical setup. Consulting a professional is recommended.
Consider factors like the number of occupants in your home, water usage patterns, and the system's capacity. Consulting a plumber can help you make an informed decision.
