Repairs and installation costs for a hot water system may vary a lot. It’s always a good idea to discuss the potential costs with your licensed plumber. They can provide practical advice on the best course of action.
Some costs that may come into play include:
- Emergency call out – if you require assistance outside normal work hours, you may be asked to pay extra charges.
- Hourly charge – plumbers typically charge by the hour for their work
- Call out fee – check to see if your plumber will charge you a call out fee (regardless of whether you select them to complete the job or not). This call out fee is to cover their time to attend your home and assess the issue.
Additional tools or materials required – If you’re upgrading your unit you may need additional items (such as piping or fittings). Your plumber will be able to provide a quote to avoid added cost surprises.
