GAS HOT WATER SYSTEMS

ABOUT GAS HOT WATER

Gas hot water systems burn gas to heat water which generates far fewer greenhouse gases than using electricity from the grid. Gas systems can come in either a gas storage water heater, or a continuous flow/instantaneous water heater.

Gas storage hot water systems will usually have a continuously burning pilot flame which ignites a burner to heat the water in the tank when it is required. Usually the unit will have a thermostat which tells the system to heat the water in the tank if it drops below a specified temperature.

A continuous flow or instantaneous gas hot water system doesn’t have a storage tank as it simply heats the water via a gas burner which is activated when a hot water tap is turned on in the house. It only heats the amount of water that is required instead of continuously heating a full tank which means they can have large energy and cost savings. More importantly, what this means for the consumer is that with a continuous flow system you will never run out of hot water.

OUR RECOMMENDATIONS

If you’re looking at upgrading your current gas system or connecting for the first time, we recommend installing gas continuous flow. With higher system warranties, 6 star+ energy rating & optional temperature control, this style system can suit the largest or smallest of families, only heating the water that you use.

Love a long shower? Never do you have to worry about running out or fluctuations in temperature as the water is heated as it flows through the system.

Temperature control provides safety & comfort to those with young kids and also saves on water & gas usage. Set your controller anywhere from 37 up to 50 degrees without the need of turning on a cold tap.

From the very first conversation on the phone under trying circumstances, Natika talked me through the process of replacing my hot water service and gave me excellent information to get the best possible result with great pricing to match. Natika’s customer service was brilliant and I have no hesitation in recommending this company. Bradley the plumber turned up early to get the job done and when we had to change the initial plan he came up with a great solution which gave me a much better result. Bradley was personable and very knowledgeable about his craft. Very happy customer wth the service, price and quality of work carried out !Definitely will use these guys again.5 starts for sure!
