Upgrading your hot water system from what you have now, even if it isn’t gas or as we did from a gas pilot light system to a continuous gas hot water system, can be a hard decision and also, as we found hard to know who to get the job done with if you live on the Northside or Southside of Brisbane or even for us a little closer to the Sunshine Coast end of Brisbane.
For us, we had to upgrade, we have quite a large house that has 4 bedrooms and a rumpus room and replacing the hot water system was a necessity as the old one was a 70 litre tank with a pilot light that burned continuously and sucked up the gas.
So by upgrading to a new system, we not only save money from using less gas, we also got continuous flow of hot water as the old hot water system ran out all the time after a few showers.
To find a gas hot water system specialist / installer in Brisbane I first consulted my search engine, notably I Googled “upgrade gas hot water Brisbane” and then also looking for the best price too “best price on gas hot water Brisbane” and lastly as we are a little closer to the Sunshine Coast “upgrade gas hot water Sunshine Coast”, there were quite a few companies that come up in this search too.
The one that stood out for us was Flare Gas Services, I rung Russell straight away to see what his workload was like and when he could fit us in.
The reason we went with Russell and got him to upgrade our hot water came from me being an Electrician earlier in my working career and dealing with big companies compared to smaller ones, the service can’t be denied usually with dealing with a smaller company.
He gave me all the facts and also what I needed to know about Solar Hot Water Systems too as we were thinking about the difference between the normal upgrade to the continuous flow gas hot water system compared to the upgrade to the Solar Hot Water System as we already have solar panels on our roof for electricity, also the questions like;
- How bigger gas hot water system do I need for my size house?
- How long does it take
- When can you do the job?
- Do I get the rebate?
- Which is the best gas hot water heater to get?
- And more
He does quotes too, we didn’t need one as our need for hot water from running out all the time was greater than the need for a quote and also we needed a slight upgrade to the copper gas pipes sizing and our gas regulator needed upgrading too at the same time.
There is also so many brands of gas hot water systems out there too so I found out with a little research, these include Rinnai, Bosch and Rheem to name a few, we went with the Rinnai system in the end, they have been in the gas hot water game for a while and also we saved some money with their cash back offer after purchase which was nice to get something back too.
So if you need a Gas Hot Water Specialist in the Brisbane / Sunshine Coast areas that has a wealth of knowledge, friendly and gives the best price, give Russell and the team a call from Flare Gas Services and you’ll be surprised how easy it is to get an upgrade on your old hot water system.
