Electric hot water systems are still the most common type of water heater used in Queensland homes. Of these, storage hot water systems are the most popular, as opposed to instantaneous hot water systems, because they can service a greater demand.
In an electric storage hot water heater, cold water flows through to the storage unit and is then heated to a set temperature by internal electric heating elements. As it is heated, the water rises to the top of the tank where it remains stored until there is a distribution demand.
Otherwise known as continuous flow heaters, instantaneous electric hot water systems work by heating water on demand. When a hot water tap is turned on, cold water flows through a heat exchanger in order to provide hot water.
These are more efficient than their storage counterparts, but they do have a higher upfront cost. Instant hot water systems can also have a lag in their hot water supply during high demand periods; the more taps turned on, the slower the hot water will be.
We understand choosing the right hot water system can be difficult, especially with a greater push for environmentally friendly households.
The main selling point for these electric storage heaters is their low upfront cost. Often, new hot water systems are bought when the old one has failed, or is at least close to it. Electric hot water systems make that initial purchase far more affordable; it also helps that they are generally easier to install and last for at least 10-15 years.
If the running costs are making you hesitant, there are some storage systems that can be connected to off-peak power periods. This restricts the times at which the heating system can actually heat. Though these periods are often between the hours of 11pm to 7am, meaning the units need to be larger as they cannot continuously heat throughout the day.
While the upfront costs might be lower, there are important factors to consider when looking to buy an electric hot water system.
Electric hot water systems are not the most efficient or environmentally friendly system on the market. The water in these storage units must be kept to a minimum of 60°C to prevent bacterial growth. This means there is a constant demand for energy use, making the running costs higher than gas or solar hot water systems.
These water tanks are also large, often needing to hold at least 120-160 litres of water, if not more depending on your household needs. This means they take up space. Though there are both indoor and outdoor options for these storage units, space is not always in abundance for some homeowners.
Electric hot water systems should be serviced every five years to ensure longevity and provide maximum functionality.
Whether your system needs a pressure test, a clean out, or even replacement parts, Jetset Plumbing is ready to help. Our electric hot water specialists are experts at accurately diagnosing any issues your hot water system might have and providing solutions that suit your needs.
