Which system to choose?
Most hot water systems available these days are powered either by gas or electricity, and there are many different opinions on which is the best.
Solar and heat pump systems have the ‘free energy’ advantage, but with fewer government rebates on solar now being offered, these systems can be expensive to install.
The benefits of choosing gas
We have found that the majority of our customers are now choosing to replace their existing hot water boilers with 5 star rated gas systems, which offer many years of reliable operation and relatively low running costs compared to electric.
Which is the right gas system for you?
You have two options to choose from – a gas storage unit such as the 5 star efficient Rheem Stellar 330, or an instantaneous / continuous flow system such as the Rinnai Infinity. Both offer fast flowing, mains pressure hot water with great running costs.
Choosing the right system for you can depend on many factors, including property size and the number of users in your house, as well as the type of system currently installed. Changing from a gas storage system to a gas instantaneous / continuous flow usually requires a gas pipe upgrade due to the higher mega-joule (mj/h) rating of instantaneous systems.
Another factor to consider is location. Is the system a long distance from your meter box? In such cases, choosing a 5 star rated gas storage system may be the best way to minimise your energy bills.
