Gas Hot Water

Servicing And Replacing Gas Hot Water Systems

Gas Heater Replacement

If your gas water heater is nearing the end of its life, is faulty, or needs upgrading, we can help. Water heaters generally last about 6-12 years. Common faults include faulty pressure relief valves, leaks, sediment build-up, and of course the most concerning one: gas emissions. Some of these issues can be solved with repairs. Some are better addressed by replacing the unit, and we are able to provide guidance and options so you can make informed decisions.

If you need to have your gas hot water heater replaced, or are unsure whether that’s the best course of action, get in touch with Garcia Plumbing. Our experienced and knowledgeable team members can talk you through the process and provide a professional, efficient gas water heater replacement service throughout the Wellington region.

Hot Water Conversions

There are many reasons a homeowner might choose to switch from an electric hot water system to a gas one. They are more energy-efficient and cheaper to run in the long term. Gas systems also tend to take up less space than electric ones. Often, our clients will make the switch when the time comes to replace their old electric water heater—and install a brand new gas one instead.

Garcia Plumbing can do gas hot water conversions all over Wellington, Hutt City, and Porirua. If you are thinking of replacing your electric cylinder with one that’s heated by gas, call our team and have a chat about your options. We can supply and install quality gas hot water systems to replace your current one.

Gas Heater Servicing

The best way to get a long, trouble-free life out of your gas hot water heater is with regular servicing. A reliable supply of hot water is easy to take for granted until it disappears! To avoid being left in the cold, make sure your water heater is being maintained by the experts.

Most agree that gas appliances should be serviced at least every two years (and sometimes more often, depending on the appliance) for the best efficiency, reliability, and safety. Gas water heaters are no exception. Call Garcia Plumbing to set up a servicing appointment. Our team are expert gas fitters and can do all the necessary checks and tasks to keep your hot water working. 

Client Reviews

We highly recommend Kieran. He worked with us on a number of jobs for our home. He provided us great advice, and delivered high quality work. Kieran is professional, and friendly.

Would highly recommend Kieran for all your plumbing needs. I have used his services twice. We did a laundry refit and he suggested changes to tidy the existing plumbing work for the washing machine and laundry sink. Also, Kieran installed some drainage outside my house to redirect surface water off my front pathway. Both jobs resulted in tidy and elegant plumbing solutions and we are very satisfied with the end results. Overall, he is great to deal with, very professional and efficient in his work. Would definitely use him again!

I have used Kieran’s plumbing services on many occasions. He removed and relocated a new hot water cylinder, did the plumbing for my kitchen renovation including fitting a sink and installed a vanity and new shower head and mixer in my bathroom. He is very professional, friendly and efficient I was really impressed with the work and how he went above and beyond to make sure things went smoothly and I got what I want.

We have used Kieran’s services (both gas and plumbing) a number of times over the years to help find and address leaks on our property, for refitting of kitchen and bathroom when renovating and for installation of infinity systems for both our house and unit. He is friendly, trustworthy, efficient and considerate and we have always found him to do a great job, with great communication before and after the job is done. Thanks for all your hard work, Kieran!
