Electric Hot Water Heater FAQ’s

Shane Howison - Owner of Curl Curl Plumbing

As a plumbing expert from Sydney, I’ve heard just about every question in the book. Lucky for you, I’ve got some answers! So sit back, grab a cuppa, and let’s tackle some of the most common electric hot water heater FAQ’s out there.

Click the links below to find out more.

Q: How does an electric hot water heater work?

Electric hot water heaters use electricity to heat up water in a tank, which is then stored until you need it. When you turn on a hot water tap, the water from the tank is delivered to your faucet.

Q: What should I do if my electric hot water heater isn't heating up water?

If your electric hot water heater isn’t heating up water, there could be a number of reasons why. Check to make sure the power supply to the heater is turned on and that the circuit breaker hasn’t tripped. If everything seems to be in order, the heating element or thermostat may need to be replaced. Call in a professional plumber to diagnose and fix the problem.

Q: What should I do if my electric hot water heater is leaking?

If your electric hot water heater is leaking, turn off the power supply to the heater and turn off the water supply to the heater. Then, call in a professional plumber to assess and repair the problem. Leaking water heaters can cause serious water damage and even pose a risk of electrical shock, so it’s important to address the problem immediately.

Q: How long should my electric hot water heater last?

With proper maintenance and care, an electric hot water heater can last up to 10-15 years. However, if you notice any signs of wear and tear or a decrease in performance, it may be time to consider replacing the heater.

Q: How often should I flush my electric hot water heater?

It’s recommended to flush your electric hot water heater at least once a year to remove any sediment buildup. This can help your heater run more efficiently and extend its lifespan.

Q: Can I install an electric hot water heater myself?

It’s recommended to have a professional plumber install your electric hot water heater to ensure it’s done correctly and safely. Improper installation can lead to leaks, electrical shock, and other hazards.

There you have it, folks – some of the most common electric hot water heater FAQ’s answered. Remember, when in doubt, don’t hesitate to call in a licensed plumber.
