Another Freeloader bites the dust!

Its amazing how many of these old Vulcan freeloaders are still around in the Auckland area! Freeloader-hot-water-cylinderThis particular one looks pretty bad so im amazed it’s been going for this long. Fortunately access is good and there is still enough hours in the day to replace it with a new Rheem Stellar. We looked at replacing the hot water cylinder with an instantaneous water heater but location and the existing gas pipe size made it very inconvenient and costly for the client. In regards to gas pipe sizing, the piping shall be of sufficient diameter diameter to ensure adequate gas supply to the gas appliance and the Rinnai would have required 200 MJ! Difference in price was $ 700. We are currently offering great gas conversion specials, if your interested checkout the website for specials of give us a call and we will be more than happy to find the right package for you!
