Quality Water Heater Brands

At Mr Emergency Plumbing, we specialise in servicing all major brands and models of hot water heaters, including the popular electric storage tanks and instantaneous gas systems.

Some of the top hot water brands we work with include:

  • AquaMAX
  • Dux
  • Chromagen
  • Bosch
  • Rheem
  • Rinnai

Our services cover a wide spectrum, ranging from routine maintenance and servicing to full replacements and new installations. Whether you’re looking for a like-for-like replacement or considering an upgrade from an electric hot water system to heat pumps or natural gas units, we’ve got you covered.

We welcome any inquiries you may have. Often, customers have a strong preference for their existing hot water heater and simply want to replace it with the same model. However, it’s worth noting that other systems may offer benefits such as increased energy efficiency, improved flow rates, and lower operating costs in the context of fluctuating electricity prices.

Exploring the possibilities of upgrading to a heat pump, gas, or solar hot water system can result in significant savings through reduced energy consumption or renewable energy use. Don’t hesitate to reach out to Mr Emergency Plumbing to determine which hot water system options align best with your needs and preferences.

Making the Right Hot Water System Choice

When it comes to hot water systems, the choices are abundant, and several critical factors must be taken into account to determine the ideal system for your family’s requirements.

Here are the key considerations in hot water system selection:

  • Hot water demand: Start by assessing the number of people in your household who require hot water on a regular basis. This is a fundamental factor that directly influences the size and capacity of the system you’ll need.
  • Bathroom and outlets: Consider the number of bathrooms and hot water outlets in your home. Ensuring that your hot water system can adequately supply all of them simultaneously is essential for uninterrupted use.
  • Fuel source: Decide on the type of fuel source you prefer for your hot water system − gas, solar or electric. Your choice can impact both the system’s efficiency and your long-term energy costs.
  • Installation constraints: Take into account any installation limitations such as location and accessibility. This may affect your options, especially if you have specific preferences for where the system should be placed.
  • Regulatory compliance: Familiarise yourself with local and national hot water regulations, ensuring that your chosen system complies with all necessary standards.
  • Household practices: Consider your household’s daily practices. How much hot water do you typically use, and do you frequently use hot water for activities like laundry? These habits will play a crucial role in determining your hot water needs.

It’s imperative to select a hot water system that can effectively meet your demands and exceed your expectations, particularly if you enjoy long, hot showers. Some individuals prioritise energy efficiency, leading them to opt for solar or heat pump hot water units.

If you find yourself uncertain about which options best suit your specific needs, don’t hesitate to reach out to Mr Emergency Plumbing. Our experts can assess your requirements and identify any potential concerns, ensuring you receive the most suitable water heater for your home.

Different Types of Hot Water Systems

If you’re trying to select the most suitable hot water system for your home, it’s crucial to have a clear understanding of the various options available. Each type employs its own distinct heating method, with its own set of advantages and considerations.

Let’s delve into the most common choices:

  • Tankless water heaters: Also known as instantaneous or continuous flow water heaters, tankless units are compact and heat water on-demand. They offer the perk of limitless hot water and are energy-efficient because they don’t constantly heat a large tank. However, they may have limitations in handling high-demand scenarios. Tankless water heaters are available in both gas and electric models, and they can be installed either outdoors or indoors.
  • Storage tank water heaters: These are the conventional hot water systems featuring a large tank that stores and heats water. While storage tank systems can be cost-effective, they have the potential to run out of hot water during periods of heavy usage, which can result in higher running costs.
  • Heat pump water heaters: Operating on electricity, heat pump systems move heat from the air or ground to warm the water. They are highly energy-efficient but may require specific installation conditions. These systems are particularly well-suited for colder climates but may not be as effective in extremely humid conditions.
  • Storage water heaters: Solar panels are employed to harness energy from the sun, which is then used to heat water. Solar water heaters can be coupled with an electric or gas booster. While they are environmentally friendly and energy-efficient, their effectiveness is dependent on the availability of sunlight. Installation involves solar panels and can be relatively expensive, but they significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Condensing water heaters: Similar to tankless units, condensing water heaters use exhaust gases’ heat to preheat incoming water, resulting in remarkable energy efficiency. They are another form of instant water heater.
  • Hybrid water heaters: Combining the technology of heat pumps with a storage tank, these systems offer energy savings and consistent hot water.

Choosing the correct hot water unit depends on the size of your household, hot water demand and environmental goals.

Consider these factors in order to find the best fit for you before buying a HWS. From gas storage systems to heat pump systems and beyond, you can trust the specialists at Mr Emergency Plumbing.

The Debate Goes On: Gas vs Electric

When delving into the realm of hot water systems, a key point of contention often centres around the choice between gas and electric water heaters. To assist you in making a well-informed decision, let’s dissect the advantages and drawbacks of each option:

Gas Water Heaters:


  • Speedy heating: Gas heaters excel in swiftly heating water, ensuring a readily available hot water supply.
  • Cost efficiency: In many regions, natural gas proves to be a more economical choice compared to electricity, resulting in reduced operational expenses and lower monthly bills.
  • Continuous hot water: They offer an uninterrupted stream of hot water, making them well-suited for larger households. Instantaneous systems are compact and easily installable indoors.


  • Higher initial cost: Gas water heaters often come with a heftier price tag for both purchase and installation, and gas prices can fluctuate.
  • Gas availability: Availability of natural gas in your area is a prerequisite, which may not be the case in certain regions.
  • Safety concerns: There is a risk associated with gas leaks and combustion-related accidents, emphasising the need for proper installation and diligent maintenance.

Electric Water Heaters:


  • Lower initial cost: Electric heaters tend to be more budget-friendly upfront and boast easier installation.
  • Safety: Electric systems lack the safety concerns inherent in gas counterparts.
  • Energy efficiency: Modern electric heaters are increasingly energy-efficient, leading to reduced long-term costs. Leveraging off-peak electricity can further your savings.


  • Slower heating: Electric heaters may take longer to heat water, and they may struggle to keep up with high-demand scenarios.
  • Higher operating costs: Electricity rates can be higher than gas, translating to elevated monthly utility bills.
  • Limited hot water: In households with large families or high hot water demands, electric heaters may fall short.

In the ongoing debate of gas vs. electric, your choice should align with your budget, utility availability, and hot water requirements. Consider these factors thoughtfully to determine the most suitable water heater for your home.
