What you need to know about hot water systems
What system is the right fit for you?
Are you asking yourself this question if your looking to get a new system? We can help pick the best fit for you and for your property.
The types of hot water systems we can help with:
Gas – natural gas is a good option if you have the connection for it. It’s cheaper than electricity and because gas rates don’t vary throughout the day, gas hot water systems can heat water as needed.
Installation typically takes no more than 2-3 hours. A 4 person household needs a tank of about 135 – 170L, you can also have instantaneous gas hot water systems installed.
Solar – consists of solar collector panels and a storage tank. A four-person household typically needs about four square meters of solar collector area (two panels) and a 300L-360L tank. You need a large tank to allow for days with less sunlight (or more hot showers than usual).
If your panels can’t be installed in an ideal location, they may be less efficient and you’ll need a larger collection area. The storage tank usually has an ideal location, they may be less efficient and you’ll need a larger collection area.
Comparatively expensive and time-consuming to install. The installer will need to inspect your home to plan the installation, but the actual installation should usually be a day’s work or less. A well-chosen system will pay for itself in the long run due to its low running costs. There are also Government rebates and other incentives that can help offset the purchase cost.
Heat Pumps – a much more efficient form of electric storage tank system that works on the same principle as a fridge or air-conditioner, by extracting heat from the air and using it to heat the water tank. Units are usually integrated (tank and compressor together) but can also be split (separate tank and compressor).
Installation typically takes no more than two or three hours, if it’s a straight replacement for a similar heat pump or electric storage HWS. The compressor can be loud, like the outdoor unit of an air-conditioner, so you shouldn’t install them too close to neighbours homes.
They tend to work best in warm and temperate regions, but there are models designed to work well in cold climates too, and most systems have a booster element for days of cold weather or high water usage. There are also Government rebates and other incentives can help offset the purchase cost.
