What You Need to Know About Replacing a Continuous Hot Water System with Gas Storage

Hot water is great for scrubbing ourselves (and our dishes and clothes), nice and squeaky clean.

There’s two basic types of water heaters in Australia:

  1. Continuous hot water systems, and
  2. Gas storage hot water systems.

Otherwise known as ‘tankless,’ instantaneous,’ or ‘on demand’ hot water systems, a gas continuous hot water system heats water as you use it. This is as opposed to heating water slowly and storing it as a hot water storage tank does.

But what’s the most cost and energy efficient water heater? And what else should you know about switching from continuous and instantaneous to storage, instead?

What do your Fremantle plumbers think about hot water systems?

Do you want the latest ‘tea’ on hot water systems from a Perth plumber?

Well, we think gas storage hot water systems are better value in Perth residential and commercial plumbing. Why?

  • They’re more energy efficient (look for the 4- and 5-star models),
  • They’re better for the environment because of low greenhouse gas emissions, and
  • These gas heaters are quick and nifty, as the recovery rate (the time it takes to reheat a tank of water), is much faster than electric water heaters. A 170-litre tank of water can be heated in about an hour, which is great for a family of four (or more) with plenty of consistently hot, relaxing shower time.

While instantaneous gas water tanks take up less space because no tank is needed, they don’t always save on money and energy efficiency.
