Electric Hot Water Systems Gold Coast
Heating water with an electrical element and storing it inside a tank, electric hot water systems are a popular choice. They're affordable and quick to replace as long as your plumber has an electrical connect licence. In terms of running costs they are not the most energy-efficient source of hot water. By heating water overnight during off-peak times costs are reduced.
Gas Hot Water Systems Gold Coast
Gas hot water systems use a burner rather than an element to heat the water. They are usually smaller than electric units because gas heats water faster and are popular as tankless units heating water on demand. Initial hot water system costs may be higher than an electric unit but with gas significantly cheaper they are more efficient to run.

How do Instantaneous Hot Water Systems Work?
Unlike traditional hot water systems, which store water to heat in a reservoir tank, an instantaneous hot water system connects directly to the plumbing, eliminating the need for a bulky tank. When you turn on the hot water tap in your home, water passes through the system and is warmed to the right temperature with a series of high-efficiency heating elements. When the hot water tap is turned off, the system goes back into standby mode.

Homeowners enjoy many benefits when they choose to switch to an instantaneous hot water system. Some of the most significant benefits include:

Hot Water Systems FAQs
With hot water accounting for about 25% or more of your home's energy bills, whether you go for an electric hot water system or one powered by natural gas or LPG is a big decision. In many cases, the decision is made for you, as you may not have a natural gas connection and do not want to have to be replacing or re-filling empty LPG bottles. However, it's impossible to say which option between gas and electric hot water system is best for your home or lifestyle as these two main categories of hot water systems are both extremely popular and widespread.
However, there are significant differences between the two technology types that you should know about that may guide the right decision for you. For instance, while electric systems are the most traditional and often the most affordable off the shelf, they may cost slightly more to run over the long time compared to gas. On the other hand, you don't need to worry about gas ventilation with an electrical unit, making electrical systems arguably more suitable for indoor installations. However, it may be possible to still have a gas-powered hot shower in a blackout, which is not possible when the electricity supply is out, but the actual ticket price of a gas system may be slightly more, and installation is also more complex.
The best guide for hot water system longevity is to check the warranty that the manufacturer offers - because if it goes bust before that warranty is out, they'll need to repair or replace it for you at their expense. However, by following the manufacturer's maintenance, servicing and inspection routine, you should expect to get a few more years than that out of your new hot water unit.
That being said, there are several factors that may alter the average hot water system lifespan in Australia, which is generally around 10-15 years. The first, of course, is the system's quality - although you'll probably need to pay a little more for the most reputable hot water brands. The environmental conditions and the quality of the water are also extremely pertinent.
And if you go for a particularly simple unit like a gas instantaneous hot water system with very few working parts, expect to get a little more life out of it - about 20 years or more. And for the most traditional hot water technology in Australia - the electric tank-storage system - you'll need to keep an eye on the sacrificial anode rod which is designed to degrade over time to prevent tank corrosion.
With proper vigilance and maintenance, you should expect to get the full warranty period out of your hot water system with few to no problems at all. There are, however, various servicing routines that you cannot overlook - like checking and replacing the sacrificial anode rod in tank-based systems.
You may also be able to prevent your system from failing completely if you watch out for the little signs of something going wrong. With a bit of luck, catching that problem early enough and using a licensed plumber to implement a timely repair could avert failure altogether and even extend your unit's average lifespan.
