Over the years, more and more homeowners have been turning away from using an electrical hot water system and installing a gas hot water system instead, mainly because they want to be assured of a constant supply of hot water. You can easily purchase a top of the line gas hot water system from your local wholesaler, saving yourself a substantial amount of money.
There are other benefits however to heating your water using gas, most notably that it produces a third less greenhouse gas emissions compared to electric systems, and they are usually cheaper to purchase. If you are interested in purchasing a gas hot water system from your local wholesaler, there are two types of systems that are available.
Gas tank hot water systems
These are very similar to electric tank systems where the hot water is stored in an insulated tank ready for use. New models are energy efficient and produce low greenhouse emissions. They can also quickly heat your water, usually in just one hour and it’s much quicker to reheat the water in the tank using gas compared to electricity. A gas hot water system is great for large families that run out of water quickly in the mornings, leaving cold showers for the unwary. You can purchase these systems from your local wholesaler.
Instantaneous gas hot water systems
These tankless systems heat your water as it’s needed, so there is no tank that takes up space in your yard and you will never run out of hot water. This system is about the same size as your power box, so it takes a minimum amount of wall space, looks good and easily lasts for 20 years (compared to tanks that have 10 or 12 year warranties). Without a tank, there is less maintenance as well!
If you want an endless supply of hot water in your home, you can’t go wrong with a gas hot water system from your local wholesaler, preferably an instantaneous system, so you avoid needing a tank. If your system is ready to be replaced, call us on 07 3391 6500 or send us an email to find out more.
