You ask the experts. Whether your old hot water unit was a reliable tank that simply aged out or a useless clunker that finally kicked it, you’ll need to reassess your needs to choose the right replacement unit.
Inner City Plumbing’s master plumbers assess different makes and models against your site’s unique needs. We’ll then shortlist the most efficient hot water systems so that you can make the best possible choice.
Upgrading a hot water system isn’t always just a matter of switching out the unit. Sometimes, the best way to improve efficiency and reduce energy bills is to replan your internal plumbing or optimise it with better components. We design comprehensive plumbing solutions to maximise efficiency and minimise risk.

Thirty years ago, we started an inner city plumbing business and called it ‘Inner City Plumbing’, because we’re plumbers, not writers.
While we’re still based in Abbotsford, our trusty plumbers and gas fitters now patrol over 160 suburbs around Melbourne. We can reach any location within our service area within one hour, guaranteed, to attend to emergencies.
Every successful business is built on the same set of principles:
As a family-owned business, pride is everything to us. We’re in the awesome position of being able to practice our trade surrounded by our loved ones, and to pass on our knowledge and learn from each other every day. Sticking to our principles has kept us on track for thirty years. We look forward to working with each other for thirty more.
Water heaters should be assessed for replacement every ten years.
With proper maintenance, a water heater can last fifteen to twenty years. But you should be vigilant about signs of wear and tear and have them serviced yearly.
It’s not necessarily true that an electric hot water system is better than a gas one. Our advice is to clarify your site’s needs before you look at the specifications of a replacement unit. You might find that while electric units have cheaper upfront installation costs, your gas prices might make a gas-fed unit a more cost-effective option in the long run.
Our plumbers can help you assess different options against your requirements.
