Hot Water Tank Installation and Replacement

Your hot water storage tank is the main water tank used for storing hot water for space heating or domestic use.  An efficiently insulated tank can retain stored heat for days, reducing costs.

Water is heated and stored in an insulated tank for use when it is required. These systems can operate on mains pressure or from a gravity feed (constant pressure) tank.

Electric Hot Water System

Electric hot water systems are far more common in Australia than gas systems, as there are less available natural gas mains supply networks in some metropolitan areas. In homes where natural gas is available, electric heating tanks have gone out of fashion as they have tended to be less energy efficient and required more space in the home. These days, however, there are a number of continuous electric hot water options which can operate completely without a tank.

Electric hot water systems generally have a lower initial cost. Because they run on a normal electric power supply, they are also much easier and cheaper to install. Over time some electric hot water systems do tend to be less efficient and more costly to run than gas heaters.

Gas Hot Water Systems

Gas hot water heaters also require being connected to a gas line, which might be difficult to do if there isn’t already a connection in the house or building.  A storage gas hot water system will burn the gas supply to heat the water in the tank to the set degree. The tank itself is insulated, so it will maintain heat over long periods of time. However, the gas burner will automatically come on when necessary to maintain the heat of the stored water.
