How to get a quote?
For about 30 minutes, retail suppliers will inspect your property. Because they are frequently linked with one or more brands, these providers can quote for a wide range of hot water system models and types. Obtain quotes from at least two sources. A supplier will ask you a number of questions, including how much hot-clothes washing you do on a daily basis, the type of hot water system you previously had, and whether you have gas connected to your home. You should also inquire with the provider about if the quote includes installation, how long it will take from order submission to completion, and whether they can assist you with government rebates.
