End of lease cleaning for renters
A thorough clean at the end of your lease can be an important step to getting your bond backREAD MORE
Most of us don’t know much about our hot water systems because while they’re working, we barely have to think of them.
However, they can occasionally stop working. If this happens, it can pay to have some background knowledge ahead of time, so if anything goes wrong we can help you out as quickly as possible.
When living in a house, most hot water systems are placed outside the property, usually to the side. They can also be found inside the house inside utility closets. Some electric hot water systems can be found inside the property attached to a wall.
If you live in a block of units, sometimes there are bulk hot water system units. This is where there is one central unit, but with separate meters for each property. It’s a good idea to check with your property manager or body corporate manager whether you have a communal or individual hot water system.
NOTE - If the circuit breaker has tripped, and you feel comfortable doing so, you can reset it by flipping the main switch all the way to OFF and then back to ON, however, it can be best to wait for an expert to do this. Please note that resetting an electric unit can take up to 24 hours to re heat.
After you have tried to identify the issue, lodge a maintenance request in Bricks + Agent and your property manager will organise a technician to attend your property.
Not having hot water in your property is considered urgent maintenance, and we will arrange someone to attend as quickly as possible.
