Choosing the right hot water system for you: [Fuel, Type, Size, Cost]
Available fuel sources are:
- If natural gas is available in the street, and;
- How long it will take to put the natural gas on.
Size & Type
How large and what type of hot water system you want to install?
Smaller tanks (25-160 Litre capacity) tend to run on “continuous power electricity”.
Larger tanks (250-400 Litre capacity) tend to run on “off peak 1” or “off peak 2” power. Off peak 1 is turned on from 11PM and 7AM approximately. Whereas “off peak 2” is turned on between 11PM-7AM and has an additional boost from approximately 1PM-4PM.
Something to consider is that off peak 2 is slightly more expensive.
They range in capacity size from 12 -32 litres. The 26 litre capacity size is the most common on the market. The size is measured by the amount of hot water that can be delivered in one minute at a 25 degree rise.
Using solar hot water energy consumption can be reduced by up to 65-90%, depending on hot water usage. Usually, I recommend the Rheem Hiline Stainless Steel system due to the longevity of the tank and minimal working parts. Keep in mind for stainless steel, it is a more durable product so you see that in the price tag. So a Rheem Hiline Stainless Steel 300L 2 panel will cost upwards of $4,000.
Most importantly, cost. By cost, I am referring to the unit itself, plus: installation, running costs (how much energy is used and how much this energy costs), and maintaining the unit.
You may be thinking you want to buy the most efficient heater available. However, if the installation costs for just getting the heater up and running are going to be excessive it may not be economical. Example, purchasing a solar system with a pay back period of close to 20 years.
Also something to contemplate with gas continuous flow vs storage gas unit is efficiency vs retro fitting costs. You know the efficiency of a gas continuous flow is better than a gas storage tank. However, don’t forget to weigh up the retro fitting costs when changing from a storage hot water system to continuous flow. This can blow out in some instances.
Consider the location of the hot water system: Can it be wheeled around on a trolley and simply be put into position? Does the hot water system need to be lifted over air conditioners to be put in place? All options of location of the heater need to consider the layout of the house. The location of the heater needs to avoid possible “dead legs” (this is cold water that is just wasted down the drain when waiting for the hot water to come out). The best position for the hot water system is to be as close as possible to the kitchen as this is the tap that gets turned on most frequently in the house.
Natural gas and electricity are going up in price, but does that mean solar, heat pump, or continuous flow is the answer? To find out the answer that best suits your needs for energy costs of hot water check out Rheem’s “Running cost Calculator below”.
