What is the best hot water system?

Hot water systems are often the backbone of many households across Melbourne. Water heating solutions are a complicated area of servicing and that is why they are only offered by qualified plumbers. There are many options when it comes to the right system for you and that is why you should use a professional to help you navigate the right one for your unique needs. They all offer different capabilities, and some are better suited than others for application in your home or commercial property. The only way to know what the best choice is, is to give us a call and we can offer you better advice, but this guide is a good place to start in the research phase. We’ll tell you everything you need to know about the systems available for you and help you in making the decision for your new installation. 

Types of hot water systems we service 

  • Gas Hot Water Systems

Homes and commercial spaces, like gyms or otherwise, that need instant water heating will be happy with a gas-powered system. Gas hot water systems are the most commonly used in the country because of this reason and also because they are cheaper when it comes to usage costs. These systems are usually installed with storage tanks or instant heater units. It should be noted that gas fittings in Melbourne are also potentially dangerous applications and need professionals in instances where you suspect a leak. 

  • Electric Hot Water Systems

These systems are the easiest and quickest to install because your home already has ample sources for electrical usage. They are best for properties where natural gas isn’t freely available and are the more cost-effective solution. Electric hot water systems utilise a traditional element to heat water and can be purchased in a wide variety of sizes. 

  • Solar Hot Water Systems

Solar hot water systems use power harnessed from the sun to heat the water. This option is best for Australian properties which already have solar panels installed because they can benefit from heating systems that are energy efficient and economical on the pocket.

  • Heat Pump Hot Water Systems

Heat pump hot water systems are similar to electric ones in that they also use electricity but in a different way entirely. This makes them much more energy-efficient, but they do work slower than other systems of water heating.

What size hot water system do I need?

The average household uses as much as 50 litres of hot water per person per day. An average household also usually houses 4 people and that amounts to about 200 litres in a total of hot water on a daily basis. That means accounting for this amount of water at regular intervals. You should also consider investing in regular maintenance plumbing in Melbourne to ensure that the system is well looked after. You should contact a professional and they can give you an accurate sizing estimate based on the following:

  • The number of people living there
  • Typical water usage patterns in a day
  • What you regularly need hot water for (laundry, cooking etc)
  • Do you have appliances that need hot water like a dishwasher?

All of these things will inform the decision that is best for you. Without proper assessment and transparent communication, it would be difficult to make a decision on which hot water system is best for you, never mind the correct size. However, you just have to give us a ring and we can deal with that in no time. We’ll be on your property carrying out meticulous installation before you know it after some consultation.
