Running hot water — essential for a happy life

Access to drinkable water is a necessity. But instant access to hot water is a miracle of modern life. As critical as a hot shower and a steaming cuppa are to us all, countless commercial and industrial sites also demand access to boiling water.

Inner City Plumbing has designed and installed unique gas and electric hot water systems for a diverse range of clients. No matter how large your site or the capacity of hot water it demands, we’ll offer a solution to suit your needs perfectly.

Our plumbers will help you choose the right hot water unit

There’s no point in planning installations until you select the right water heater. You’ll need to consider several makes and models, consider their size, output capacity, energy efficiency and a raft of other specifications. Who has the time for that? We do. We regularly install and work with all the common household brands, including; Aquamax, Bosch, Dux, Rheem, Rinnai, Vulcan and Zip. We’ll shortlist the best options to help you make an informed decision.

Our service areas

When we first opened shop, we provided plumbing services to a dozen or so inner-city suburbs. You can probably guess how we came up with our name. That was thirty years ago.

Inner City Plumbing now proudly services nearly 170 Melbourne suburbs. Chances are high you’re located in one of them.

No matter how far you are from our Abbotsford headquarters, we guarantee our one-hour emergency response time for all clients within our service area.

Frequently asked questions

A storage hot water system draws cool water from your mains and stores it in a tank. When you require hot water, you must activate the system, which will heat the stored water.

Storage hot water systems can be quite energy efficient, as they aren’t required to keep water hot at all times. Their downside, however, is that they cannot offer instant access to hot water and instead need time to warm up.

Continuous hot water systems use high-energy heating elements to rapidly heat cool mains water as it flows through it.

The primary benefit of a continuous-flow hot water water unit is that it gives you instant access to hot water. However, it may not be as energy efficient as a storage hot water system.

That depends on your particular needs. There are several pros and cons to electric and gas hot water systems.

One benefit of electric systems is that they’re cheaper to install and can be powered by solar panels on your property. On the downside, they can be energy inefficient.

Gas systems can be more affordable for smaller households as gas prices don’t fluctuate by peak and off-peak demand. However, there are environmental effects to consider.

Feel free to leave the research to us — it’s our job to match the best hot water system to your needs.
