Choosing a Hot Water System

Tailored advice on recommended brands with the most cost effective and efficient long term solution for you.

Gas Hot Water Services
A gas hot water system uses gas to heat the hot water. It burns LPG or natural gas (mains or reticulated gas) and therefore require a natural gas connection to your home or the use of bottled gas.


There are two types of gas hot water systems:

Instantaneous systems:
Tankless instantaneous systems (continuous flow systems) heat water on demand. When the hot tap is turned on the gas burner starts and heats the water as it flows through a heat exchanger (a coiled pipe). It only heats the required amount of water instead of heating a full tank. With a continuous flow system no energy is wasted from unused hot water. The systems are wall mounted and compact so are a great space saving solution.

Storage water heaters:
A storage heater uses a gas burner located under an insulated storage tank to heat the water. A storage heater will have a pilot flame that lights the main burner when needed. Storage heater systems installed indoors require a flue to vent exhaust gas outside.

A gas hot water service can be a good solution for a home with limited sunlight/where a heat pump may be unsuitable.

Hot Water Heat Pumps
A hot water heat pump system absorbs heat from the air outside and transfers it to the water stored inside the heater through a heat exchange system. A hot water heat pump system is a cost effective solution (generous rebates available) using renewable energy without the need for solar panels. A hot water heat pump is easy to install using the same connections as your existing electric hot water system.

Electric Hot Water Systems
The traditional electric hot water systems produce around four tonnes of greenhouse gases per year. New government regulations are phasing-out these greenhouse intensive water heaters to reduce the impact on our environment.

You do not need to replace a working electric hot water system but if your system is in need of repair or replacement consider a gas, solar or electric heat pump solution.
