Common electric hot water problems

Most electric hot water systems are either the electric storage style or booster systems for solar hot water units however instant electric units are becoming more popular for small applications.

For this reason, most of the hot water units we repair are the electric storage type. Common problems we encounter include:

  • Tripping circuit breaker - this can be caused by a range of factors from a faulty heating element to a thermostat problem
  • No hot water - often caused by power supply problems like a tripping fuse or safety switch or element issue
  • Not enough hot water - possibly due to a faulty heating element or the demand for hot water has increased in your home since the tank was installed.
  • High running costs - faulty thermostats can cause the system to constantly heat rather than just maintaining the tank temperature which can lead to an increase in the electricity bill.

Make sure any problems are repaired as soon as you notice an issue to minimise the work needed. Keeping the hot water system in good running order also means it will continue to operate at it’s most energy efficient level.
