Why Choose a Gas Hot Water System?

Efficiency & Performance Gas hot water systems offer efficient heating and a high performance for your home’s needs. With rapid heating capabilities and the convenience of using natural gas, they provide a robust and effective approach to heating water.

Energy Independence Gas hot water systems can operate independently of the electrical grid, making them reliable even during power outages. This independence ensures that you always have access to hot water.

The Benefits of Gas Hot Water

Quick Installation Professional installation of gas hot water systems is straightforward when you have existing gas lines, and it can be more cost-effective in the long run due to lower operational costs.

Consistent Hot Water Supply With a gas hot water system, you benefit from a continuous supply of hot water, thanks to the rapid recovery rate of gas heating, ensuring you never have to wait long for hot water.

Reduced Energy Bills Natural gas is often less expensive than electricity and provides a more cost-effective solution for heating water, which can lead to lower energy bills.

Cleaner Burning Fuel Natural gas is one of the cleanest fossil fuels, producing fewer greenhouse gases than coal or oil, making gas hot water systems a more environmentally friendly option compared to traditional electric systems.

Durability & Low Maintenance Gas hot water systems are known for their longevity and typically require less maintenance, translating to fewer worries and more savings over time.

Adaptable to Future Innovations As biogas and other renewable gas technologies develop, gas hot water systems stand ready to adapt, making them a practical choice for a sustainable future.

  • What are the main types of hot water heaters available in Melbourne?
    The primary types are continuous flow (similar to tankless) water heaters, storage water heaters, heat pump water heaters, and solar water heaters. Each type has its own benefits and is designed for different household needs.
  • How do I determine the right size for my home?
    The size you need is based on your household’s peak hour water usage. Calculate the total liter's of hot water you use during the busiest hour of the day. For storage heaters, the capacity in liter's should match or exceed this number. For continuous flow heaters, consider the flow rate (liter's per minute).
  • Are energy-efficient water heaters beneficial in Melbourne?
    Yes, models with high energy rating stars can lead to significant savings on your electricity or gas bills, aligning with Australian energy efficiency standards.
  • How long does a typical hot water heater last in Melbourne?
    On average, traditional storage water heaters last about 10-15 years, while continuous flow models can last up to 20 years with the right care. However, the lifespan can vary based on factors like usage, water quality, and maintenance.
  • Can I install the water heater on my own in Australia?
    No, in Australia, it’s a legal requirement that only a licensed plumber can install a hot water system. This ensures that the installation meets all safety standards, plumbing regulations, and manufacturer’s guidelines. Incorrect installation can lead to safety risks, voided warranties, and potential penalties. Always hire a licensed professional for such tasks.
  • How do I maintain my hot water heater to ensure it lasts a long time?
    Regular maintenance includes checking for leaks, draining the tank yearly to remove sediment (for storage models), inspecting the pressure relief valve, and periodically checking the sacrificial anode. For continuous flow models, descaling is crucial. Always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for specific maintenance advice.
