Frequently Asked Questions About Hot Water Installation In Melbourne
Not only is it a bad idea, but it’s also dangerous and illegal to tackle it as a DIY project in Australia. What’s more, you’ll also need to have plumbing and electrical skills and know the local building codes (which you probably don’t).
At the end of the day, for your own safety and the service life of the water heater, it’s best to hire a licensed technician. Improper installation can result in an explosion or water damage, and it can void the water heater’s manufacturer warranty.
Usually, the most cost-effective solution is to replace an existing water heater with the same model and fuel source. If you plan on changing the fuel source or the type of water heater, it will call for more components or accessories that can quickly increase the total cost of the project.
Gas water heaters are commonly used throughout Australia. However, a gas leak can result in carbon monoxide poisoning that can cause serious long-term health risks. If it’s not caught in time, it can even be fatal.
The most common sign of a gas leak is a strong smell of sulfur (it smells like rotten eggs). Other signs to look out for are a low hissing noise, a higher gas bill, or dead indoor plants. Also, if you notice symptoms like dizziness, headaches, nausea, weakness, trouble breathing, and vomiting, it’s critical that you seek medical attention and get your gas heater serviced.
