Electric Hot Water Costs in Melbourne

Hot water systems from top Melbourne brands such as Zip, Vulcan, Rheem, Rinnai, Bosch, Lux, and others can comfortably last for at least 10 years or more, based on how they've been maintained. When contemplating a replacement, you would like to make the best choice in terms of energy consumption, capacity, as well as electric hot water costs. All of these factors are significant when considering the overall cost of the system.

Factors Influencing Melbourne Electric Hot Water Costs


The following are the most important factors influencing the installation and use of electric hot water systems:

  • Water Heater Capacity- Selecting the proper size will save on installation and operation costs.
  • Electric Water Heater Brand, Model, and Type- Electric water heaters are available in storage and tankless configurations. They are usually the same price as gas products. However, electric hot water costs would be slightly higher due to the lower price of natural gas.
  • Replacement- If you switch out your electric storage heater with a similar one, product, the electric hot water costs will be negligible. We'll simply remove the old unit and replace it, quickly connecting it to the water system.
  • Delivery Costs- Larger capacity heating systems are heavier and bulkier, which affects delivery costs.

Other Factors to factor In When Calculating Electric Hot Water Costs

Aside from the electric hot water heater replacement price, you must also consider its operating costs. Many people in Melbourne prefer off-peak power tariffs, which can cost up to 50% less than standard electricity pricing. Large capacity (400 litres/315 litres/250 litres) electric heaters would be ideal for your needs if you want to take advantage of this.

We are here to assist you with all of the standards and details about various electric hot water units, heaters allowing you to make a more informed decision.
