Can you explain the difference between the hot water systems?

Gas - Storage Tank Systems

We recommend large households use a gas storage tank system. The key benefits of this system are the fast recovery speed ideal for properties with many occupants. These systems keep generous amounts of hot water, so if your family likes long showers, this system is for you.

Key benefits:

  • Dependable and reliable
  • 10 Year cylinder warranty
  • Fast and Immediate Hot water
  • More cost effective then electricity
  • Lower up-front cost than Solar and heat pumps
  • Will run in a blackout as no electricity is required

Continuous Flow System

Changing climates and environments, coupled with denser housing has seen increased demand for continuous hot water systems. These smaller systems are designed with the future in mind and are especially ideal for holiday homes, granny flats and rental properties. As the unit is mounted to the wall, the large space typically required by a storage tank system provides more space on the exterior of the home. With a constant temperature, this system works well with vulnerable users like children and elderly residents.

This system can also be used in large houses; two units may be installed to minimise the time delay of hot water as it moves across the property.

Key benefits:

  • Compact size fits almost anywhere
  • Great for small homes
  • Heat water as you need it
  • Thermostats can be installed around the property to control the temperature
  • Near zero energy loss
  • Life span can be more than 12 years

Electric Hot Water Systems

Electric hot water systems are the most reliable and easiest to install. These systems come in many different sizes, shapes and forms. If space is limited in your home or business the electric unit is your best option. In many instances, an electric system is the most cost-effective solution to provide hot water to a property.

Key benefits:

  • Can be installed anywhere.
  • Low maintenance cost.
  • 10 Year cylinder warrantee
  • Dependable and reliable
  • Australian Made

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps work like an air conditioner, but instead of extracting from ambient air and converting into cool air, the heat pump processes the air through a serious of compressors and condensers to heat the water.

Key benefits:

  • Eco-friendly
  • Efficient at converting energy to heat
  • Ideal for regions with warmer climates

Solar Hot Water Systems

A solar hot water system is ideal to reduce the cost of heating water for your home or business. With a solar hot water heating system, you can use the power of the sun to reduce your reliance on traditional heating sources in favour of an abundant and environmentally friendly energy source: the sun!

However, it is important to choose the right system for your needs. There are a vast range of options, from roof mounted systems to slit systems.

We recommend contracting a qualified technician to install your system. We can visit your property to suggest the right system; a key component of ensuring great cost-savings. The right system is crucial as common issues can cause expensive maintenance and repair issues such as failing pumps, burst pipes in winter and valves failing in summer.

Don’t risk the installation of your new solar system with unqualified technicians advice and poor installation techniques. For a professional solar hot water system, Canberra Hot Water and Plumbing will ensure your investment in solar heating to be a sound investment for the future.

Key benefits:

  • Eco-friendly: Using the energy from the sun to heat water
  • Long term cost savings
  • Reduce greenhouse pollution
  • Lower your hot water bills
