Instantaneous hot water is amazing. Imagine waking up in the morning, then jumping straight into a lovely warm shower. This dream is many people’s reality right here in Perth today! Perhaps you have been thinking yourself about checking out electric instant hot water system prices. Before you do so, have a read of this blog to find out more before you have one installed.
There are two kinds – gas and electric
Instantaneous hot water systems can work either via gas or electricity. Gas ones generally cost less although they could involve a larger initial spend. This is certainly likely if you need to have a new gas line installed. Having said this, gas systems keep on going even when the power goes out so they’re often a great investment.
On the other hand, electric systems are energy efficient in comparison with gas systems. It’s also important to note that instantaneous gas systems work more efficiently than regular gas systems. To find out more or to discuss what’s best for your needs, speak to the Baywood Plumbing & Gas team.
They’re worth the price
Instantaneous hot water heaters or tankless water heaters are more expensive than regular water heaters with tank systems. However, they’ll save you money over the years, so are well worth the initial layout. They also need to be replaced less frequently than conventional systems.
You may need some upgrades
As we mentioned earlier, you might need a new gas line installed if you choose to have a gas water heater. You could also need an upgrade if you’re looking to have an electric water heater fitted. You’ll require a 220-volt outlet along with an electrical panel. To find out more about a new electric hot water system, Perth-based Baywood Plumbing & Gas can help!
One Might Not Be Enough
Although your hot water won’t run out, it’s true that there is a limited output when you have a tankless system. You’ll have between two and five gallons of hot water every minute. Consequently, if you want to run the washing machine and have a shower, you might need to rethink what’s most important. So, if you have a large family or a big demand for hot water, you could always think about having a water heater for each appliance.
If you have decided to get a tankless water heater, simply contact the Baywood Plumbing & Gas team and we’ll get your job done. We are specialists in electric hot water system repair, installation and maintenance. We look forward to being of service to you.
