How to Switch from Electric to Gas Hot Water System

Are you tired of your electric hot water system constantly running up your energy bills?

Every time there is a power outage, do you lose the ability to have a hot shower?

It might be time to consider switching to a gas hot water system. Not only is gas more economical in today’s times, but it also heats water faster and more efficiently than electric models.

If you’re considering making the switch, here are some steps to follow:

1. Schedule a site visit

The first step is to schedule a site visit with a licensed plumber, such as Plum Pride Plumbing & Gas. They will need to check if your property has access to LPG gas or mains gas. This will determine what type of gas hot water system is best suited for your home, which is dependent on usage and location. (If you love long hot showers or have a large family, we will make sure your hot water system works with your lifestyle.)

2. Check existing pipework size

The plumber will also need to check the existing pipework size in your home. This is important as it will determine what size instantaneous gas hot water system you require.

3. Receive a quote for your new system.

Once the plumber has completed the site visit and determined what type and size of gas hot water system is required, they will provide you with a quote for installation.

Switching from an electric hot water system to a gas hot water system may seem daunting, but it can save you money in the long run. With faster heating times and lower energy costs, it’s worth making the switch.

Not sure if you’re ready for a service or upgrade?
