There is nothing as deflating as coming into your home after a long day at work and finding that that warm shower you’ve been thinking and dreaming about all afternoon is actually freezing. Having no hot water is not fun at all. If you can identify with this scenario or you don’t ever want to be on the receiving end of an arctic shower then read on to find out how to choose the right gas hot water system for your home.
Gas Hot Water Systems – The Benefits
Gas systems generally tend to be cheaper to buy than electric or solar systems. In addition, these systems give out up to 33% less greenhouse gas emissions than their electric counterparts so they support the environment too. There are two distinct types of gas hot water systems gas storage hot water units and instantaneous. Let’s take a look at the differences.
Gas Storage Hot Water Systems
When it comes to your gas hot water system, Perth-based Baywood Plumbing & Gas are the local experts. We can come out to your home or business and install a gas storage hot water system at a time that suits you. Imagine having lots of reliable hot water when you need it. Perfect!
Gas storage hot water systems are energy efficient, especially if you choose a 4- or 5-star model. In addition, these systems are low in greenhouse gas emissions. What’s more is that they can heat a sizeable 170 litre tank in around one hour. These are faster at reheating a water tank then electric water heaters so they’re great for larger households as well as smaller ones.
Instantaneous Gas Hot Water Systems
Instantaneous hot water systems provide constant hot water every time you turn on the tap. They are often called tankless units because they heat the water as it passes through the system. Because there is no storage tank, you’ll never run out of hot water. Additionally, instantaneous gas hot water systems are not large, around the size of a small suitcase, so they don’t take up a lot of space while delivering lovely hot water whenever you need it! The systems can also last up to 20 years compared to a traditional storage tank that has a lifespan of just 10 to 12 years. You also don’t need to worry too much about maintenance and/or replacement.

It’s really up to you with regards to what system will be most suited to your needs.
