5 Reasons to Replace Your Hot Water System in Summer

Updated: Feb 13

Plenty of us are guilty of only replacing our hot water system once it fails. And when it fails, it does so at the worst time! This leaves us stuck with a cold shower. Not a fun time. It also leaves us scrambling for the first hot water solution we can find - not necessarily the best solution. In reality, you’re always best off replacing your hot water system preventatively, before an issue arises. Read on to learn why you should replace your hot water system in summer.

Replace Your Hot Water System Before It Fails

You’re always best off replacing your hot water system before it fails. Preventative measures rather than reactive ones are key! Generally, hot water systems have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years. If your hot water system is getting on in years, it may be time for a hot water system replacement. The best thing you can do is have your plumber assess the hot water system for any damage, to determine if it should be replaced.

Make An Energy Efficient Choice

When you replace your hot water system in a rush, you lose the opportunity to take your time to choose an energy-efficient hot water system. Plus, if you have your old hot water system checked by a plumber, and it inevitably does need replacing, this is by no means a bad thing. Replacing an inefficient hot water system with a brand new, energy-efficient one will eventually pay for the new hot water system. The savings on the environment, and your wallet, can’t be ignored!

Choose The Best Hot Water System For You

If you replace your hot water system when you have time and are not in a rush, you can take your time to evaluate which hot water system is best for you. Whether you choose a gas hot water system or an electric hot water system, you can rest assured you made a calculated choice that works best for your unique needs.

Lower Daytime Temperatures Expected This Summer

According to the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM), La Niña will persist throughout summer and as late as early Autumn 2022. La Niña typically means we’ll experience lower daytime temperatures and higher nighttime temperatures. With these lower than normal daytime temperatures for summer, we may be relying on our hot water systems earlier in the year than we thought. Hence, it's best to make sure your hot water system is fully functional.

Replace Your Hot Water System Before The Winter Rush

While there are plenty of practical reasons to replace your hot water system in summer, plenty of people feel prompted to replace theirs in winter, with the drop in temperature serving as a reminder that’s hard to ignore. Naturally, with an influx of people suddenly choosing to replace their hot water systems, you can expect plumbers may be booked out. If your hot water system was to fail in winter, during peak time, you may be stuck with the issue for longer than you would like. The best choice is to check and replace your hot water system before the winter rush.
