Save the Planet and Your Money: Upgrade Your Hot Water System With Queensland’s Smart Energy Savers Rebate

If you are a Queensland resident, now is the perfect time to consider upgrading your hot water system. The Queensland Government are offering a fantastic opportunity through the Climate Smart Energy Savers rebate, allowing eligible residents to not only reduce their energy bills but also lower carbon emissions, and improve the energy efficiency of their homes. This initiative is part of the Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan, and it is a win-win for your wallet and the environment.  

What is the Climate Smart Energy Savers Rebate?

The rebate is designed to provide financial incentives for households in Queensland to replace outdated appliances with energy-efficient options. This initiative not only helps save money on energy bills but also contributes to a greener and more sustainable future.

There are two types of rebates available:

Standard Rebate: This rebate is available to all eligible Queensland households and provides financial support for purchasing and installing energy-efficient appliances.

Low-Income Rebate: Designed to assist households with lower annual incomes, this rebate offers additional financial support for purchasing and installing eligible appliances.

One essential point to note is that only one rebate is available per household, and the rebate amount cannot exceed the total cost of the appliance purchase and installation.

How to apply:

Applying for the Climate Smart Energy Savers rebate seems to be a straightforward process:

  • Purchase and have an eligible appliance installed after 4 September 2023, note it is a first in, first served set up.
  • Submit your application within 30 days of purchasing plug-in appliances or within 30 days of installation for fixed appliances.
  • Ensure your appliance meets the eligibility criteria.

What Is A Tankless Water Heater

A tankless HWS runs on gas or electricity. A sensor within the system will pick up when a hot water tap is turned on and release gas to ignite and heat the water for consumption.

Which is better – Hot water heater or tankless?

In general a tankless system is more energy efficient than a storage system. Because in a storage system the hot water heated will lose heat during the day. This will need to be reheated and will cost more.

What is the purpose of a tankless hot water heater?

A tankless system purpose is to supply water the instant the user in the household needs hot water. Fuel consumption is less as the system does not run 24 hours a day.

What is the difference between point of use and tankless water heaters?

A point of use system is located near the point where the water is going to be used. Unlike the system which supplies water to the entire house.

How much does it cost to run a tankless hot water heater?

The tankless hot water heater installation cost range between $750 to $3000 if switching between electric to gas. A normal system costs between $500 to $1000.

Tankless systems require a lot of energy to heat up water immediately. However it doesnt run all the time so energy saving happens. It costs roughly $527.10 per year for a family of four.

Hydro Jet Rodder drain clearance in Northside Brisbane

Jetter The Gap

With the Hydro Jet Rodder on board, Plumbaround can clear even the toughest blocked drains.  Whilst the electric eel is a great machine to clear lines, the Jet Rodder blasts all sorts of debris free from blocked sewer and stormwater lines.

Hydro Jetting cleans drains once cleared of a blockage with a high pressure water jet at up to 35,000kpa. The jet rodder achieves this by feeding a self propelled hose with a specifically designed nozzle up the drain.

There are many places an electric eel cannot go where a jetter hose travels with ease and does the job more effectively and efficiently. We have a variety of nozzles for use and with the ability to pull through toilet pans and tight PVC gully traps.

Hydro-jetting will clear storm water lines blocked by silt, sludge and sediment build up.  The hydro-jet method penetrates the dirt and flushes the drain in one action, leaving the drain clean and free flowing.

Call the Plumbaround team today on 3038-1038 to enquire about the Hydro Jet Rodder.
