Which hot water system is best for my home or business?
Electric Hot Water Systems
Electric storage systems use a heating element located inside a tank to heat water.
Tanks can be installed indoors or outdoors, and come in various sizes depending on your usage requirements.
These systems are relatively cheap to install, however can be expensive to run. Our experienced technicians can help you select the best option for your home.
Gas hot water systems
Gas systems are great at heating water quickly and are relatively cheap to run. Either LPG or natural gas can be used depending on your connection. Gas systems are normally installed outdoors, however can be installed indoors if necessary (restrictions apply).
Gas can be used to heat water in both continuous flow and storage systems. In a continuous flow system, water is heated as it moves through the system. This can be very cost-effective, as the system is not working to maintain hot water throughout the day.
Gas storage systems involve a tank which holds hold water throughout the day. These systems require more ongoing maintenance compared to continuous flow systems, as the tanks, seals and valves lose quality over time and must be replaced. Most tanks carry a 10-year manufacturers warranty.
Our plumbers are fully licensed gas fitters and can advise you on the best option for your home or business.
Solar hot water systems
Solar hot water systems are an economical and eco-friendly option to heat water. They are only available in storage systems, and we recommend a larger tank to account for days with reduced sunlight. Solar systems have very low running costs, which over time will compensate for the costly installation.
Heat pump hot water systems
Compared to a conventional electric water heater, a heat pump draws less power and is more energy efficient due to the water heating process. These systems have a higher upfront cost, but the long lifespan and low running costs can jusitfy the initial expense.
