Getting the right hot water system installed

A critical part of the process is deciding which system is best for your home. There are a number of different types of water heater available, each with its own distinct advantages. The best one for your needs will be determined by a variety of factors, including your budget, the space available in your home and whether you have the relevant fixtures. 

  • Electric — Though standard electric systems have previously been the most expensive systems to maintain and run. They’re also the most reliable, readily available and now with rooftop solar on most homes, have become cheaper to run. These can either be storage based (i.e. you have a finite supply of hot water until the tank refills) or continuous heating (i.e. the water is heated as it leaves the element, so you’ll never run out of hot water). In Canberra (with our low ambient water temp), electric instant systems generally can’t generate enough flow to maintain a shower so aren’t a viable option.
  • Gas/LPG — These models have historically been cheaper to run than electricity-based models but less common due to the decreasing number of urban housing with gas attachments. As with electricity-based water heaters, they can be purchased in either storage or continuous heating varieties. In Canberra, gas continuous can be found in a large amount of homes, they’re compact, easy to install and whisper quiet. Even with the push toward electric products, these are still a great way to heat hot water. 
  • Heat Pump — In the past, heat pumps have been ideal for warmer climates or for during warmer months, newer series heat pumps have no problems functioning in Canberra.  Heat pump hot water systems Canberra, function in a similar way to air conditioners. Essentially, they harness the surrounding warm air and use it to heat the water inside the tank. 
  • Solar hot water systems — Although arguably the most energy-efficient and cost-effective option,  in the long run, solar hot water systems are reliant on having both the requisite roof space and adequate sunlight. However, they are becoming increasingly popular as Australians look to make more eco-conscious decisions.
