When you don’t have hot water flowing through your taps, showers, or tubs, hiring a hot water system specialist via Airtasker is the answer. You no longer have to rely on word-of-mouth to find a reliable water heater installation service near you. Whether it involves unvented cylinders or vented cylinders, Taskers can take care of all your heating system needs.
Put up a task on our platform, provide your address, cylinder specifications, and how soon you want hot water running through your taps. Nearby Taskers will ask about the installation job and give you a free quote. Note that you can choose a Tasker based on their rate, but this doesn’t have to be the only criteria. You can check out reviews and ratings so that you can decide based on their experience and skills.
Once you've accepted an offer, your chosen Tasker will have your unvented or vented hot water system installed in no time. Getting hot water to flow throughout your home is easy and convenient on Airtasker.
No, there’s no need to provide any tools or equipment for this service. You only need to provide the components and materials of your electric water heater or gas water heater installation. The specialist you hire already has the necessary tools and equipment, apart from the requisite skills and years of experience for doing the job. You can expect them to arrive fully-equipped and ready to install your hot water system.
Hot water system installations usually take one to three days. This estimate can include inspecting your home’s current hot water system or the area where you plan to install a new system. The actual time can vary, depending on the complexity of the installation. If the materials and hot water system are ready and the installation is a simple one, it shouldn’t take more than a day’s work.
Yes! If you offer this service yourself and have more jobs than you can handle, you can certainly book a Tasker to fill in. Just be sure to describe the job, the skill and experience level you require of your Tasker, and our platform matches you with the most suitable candidates. They’ll give you a free quote then you can coordinate from there.
No, we don’t recommend installing a hot water system yourself, whether it’s a new or replacement system. This requires compliance with many state rules, regulations, and building codes, and you must have a licence.
Apart from the permits and licences, a working knowledge about heating, temperature, ventilation, plumbing, carpentry, and electricals are essential for safe and proper installation. Instead of doing this yourself, we advise that you secure a permit first then book a licenced professional via Airtasker.
The right size for your hot water system depends on the number of occupants in your home and their needs. A good rule to go by is to allow 30 to 40 litres of hot water per person for a gas-operated system, and 55 to 60 litres for an electric system. You should also consider how much and how often you need hot water for washing and bathing. Consult an expert to determine the perfect size.
Should your electricity go out, it’s possible to still have a hot shower or enjoy a hot tub while having hot water run through your tap, but not for long. In a power outage, the hot water in your home can stay hot for another one to two hours. This can be shortened if several taps, showers, or tubs’ hot water functions are used simultaneously. This can be further shortened in freezing weather.
Hot water system installation services include all the activities necessary to put a reliable, safe hot water system in your home. This involves installing an unvented hot water system, inspecting the installation area, preparing materials, installing the cylinder or tank, then making the needed connections. After the installation, your plumber can test the system for flaws and address them as needed.
Your water heater installation begins with a thorough inspection of the spot that will house the tank and its components. Your plumber makes sure that the floor is robust enough to support the cylinder's weight and complies with established building codes and safety rules and regulations. If the allotted space is deemed insufficient for the cylinder, your plumber can help you look for an alternative spot for the unvented cylinder service.
Your plumber makes the necessary preparations for the hot water cylinder installation. If necessary, some plumbers may offer to make an improvised platform of sturdy materials to support the tank's weight. Otherwise, you can hire a Tasker to handle all your carpentry needs.
When appropriate, your hired plumber shuts off the power, gas, and water supply before starting the job. They can take all the necessary measurements to determine the right amount of materials, then cuts and bends wires and pipes to the appropriate lengths and widths. Your plumber may also cut holes into walls or floors as needed to allow pipes or wires to run through.
Once the cylinder's space is ready, your plumber can proceed with the unvented hot water cylinder installation. They can place the cylinder or tank onto its designated space and position. Your plumber takes care not to damage any of the components of the vented hot water cylinder or other pipes and wires in its surroundings.
After the cylinder is in position, your specialist proceeds with attaching the appropriate pipes, wires and components like the Temperature and Pressure Release valve, expansion vessel, immersion heater, and any other pipes and valves. As with all other stages of the unvented cylinder installation, they use appropriate materials and techniques that are compliant with state safety and building regulations and industry best practices.
Your hired plumber tests the system after completing the installation. They check that each tap and shower head provides hot water on demand and flows with consistent pressure. Should variations in temperature or pressure arise, your plumber can troubleshoot the system and do the appropriate fixes.
They repeat this process until the hot water system works without any issues. And now that your home has hot water running through your taps, tubs, and showers, why not ensure greater warmth and comfort in every room of your home? On Airtasker, you can also hire an insulation installer who can help you cut down on bills and achieve year-round comfort.

Hot water tap water doesn't flow properly. Small amount of water at first,then slows to a dribble then stops. Similar problem with cooled water tap, though it was fixed may need a look also.

I am not getting hot water in one of the bathroom shower. The sink in that bathroom and all other shower and sinks have hot water supply. I live in an apartment building and there is no boiler in my flat as hot water is centrally supplied through centralised heating.

There is currently no hot water in the flat although the heating unit appears to be on. This flat does not have central heating so the hot water heating unit is separate.
Noureldin is very thorough and patient with his work. He is concerned with getting the job done to a good standard and keen to make sure the client is happy. Very pleased with him and I would not hesitate to work with him again.

The hot water fuse had blown which I got fixed by an electrician today but there is still no hot water. So, there might be an issue with the heating unit for the water. The electrician has checked all the wiring.
Gabriel is very professional and thorough with his work. He was knowledgeable, patient and took time to ensure the issue was fixed. I would definitely work with him again.

No hot water or heat from radiators. Have reset the boiler & pressure is ok but still not working
Greenwich, Greater London, SE10

Hi, We are based in Greenwich, and have an issue with the water temperature in our flat. At the hottest setting on our taps, the water is still cold or barely warm. We have already tried bleeding the radiator with no luck. The heating and hot water system is centralised and we have a thermal tank in the flat. The whole system runs on electricity (no gas). Hence, we need a plumber to take a look and fix this issue. Thanks, Dikshant
Thanks - fixed the problem! Appreciate the help

my boiler has an error sign and number 108 keep appearing on the screen. My hot water has stopped working, it's an e-combi evo boiler.

I have an immersion heater and the water has stopped heating up and no hot water comes out the taps. The pump works, as well as cold water. Before this, hot water also didn't come out the shower head properly (it was there but the cold water source was dominant and the shower never got warm unless I turned on all cold taps in the house which meant the jet was very weak). I have attempted to reset the two thermostats with no success. I believe the two connected switches (for peak and off-peak) work fine, however, the red light indicator doesn't turn on (this has always been the case, they burnt out a while ago).
