ELECTRIC HOT WATER SYSTEMS:
These systems use electricity to power the heating element through a thermostat until the stored water within the tank reaches the required temperature.
GAS STORAGE HOT WATER SYSTEMS:
These run off Natural Gas through a gas meter within the property boundary or through Liquid Petroleum Gas via gas bottles. These systems use gas to power the burners until the stored hot water within the tank reaches the required temperature. These systems have a pilot light on the burner assembly kit.
INSTANTANEOUS HOT WATER SYSTEMS:
These are generally smaller hot water heaters that can be mounted on an external wall. They can run off of Natural Gas or LPG. Some models come with a pilot light and don’t require electricity to work, some models require power to ignite. These generally are more popular as they are not using excess gas to keep the pilot alight and the main burners only fire up when a hot tap is opened.
SOLAR HOT WATER SYSTEMS:
These are connected to solar panels which are generally mounted on the north facing roof of the property to maximise exposure to the sun. These panels are designed to absorb the suns rays and convert this into energy, heating the stored water within the tank to the required temperature.
HEAT PUMP SYSTEMS:
These transfer the ambient heat in the air outside of the unit to the water stored inside the tank, through a heat exchange system. This is similar technology to a refrigerator but instead of producing cold energy, heat pumps produce warm energy to heat the stored water. The temperature can be controlled electronically making upgrading from an existing electric hot water system, simple.
