The choice between natural gas systems and an electrical hot water system refers to the ways in which your water will be heated. These two types of water heaters offer efficiency and reliability, with the main differences being in natural gas using a gas bottle to bring the heat or electric using electric resistance coils. Some homes may not have a connection or storage units, in which case – electric systems are essential. If you have both, there are pros and cons to each heat pump.
Natural Gas Hot Water Systems
Natural gas provides an instantaneous heat that works with time efficiency a consistent ability to capture heat. This type of water heater works by a temperature gauge monitoring the water within the insulated tank and heating with a gas flame once cooled. A gas system can be cheaper to run and repair than an electric water heater but can be more expensive to install and be less environmentally friendly, with the water maintaining a continuous flow of heat.
Electric Heat Pump Water Heaters
Electric units are available for more diverse use and are high efficiency, with options for large or small usage, and will only heat the water when needed. Electric heaters are perfect for a single or double-person household, but large families may struggle with waiting for the water to heat up after continuous use. Electric heaters don’t need a large water tank or big storage systems and are suited for smaller spaces. Unlike gas, these heaters will impact your electricity bill. The cost of maintaining this type of unit is higher than that of gas.
Systems can last for up to 12 years, and regular servicing will go a long way in avoiding a breakdown at the most inconvenient time. Non-serviced systems may need bigger repairs in the future, be noisy during use, not heat the water consistently, or break down. Having a qualified plumber look over your system, storage tank, temp, and pressure valve once a year will save you time and money long term.
You can expect good quality systems to last up to 15 years with proper care and use. Gas will have a shorter lifespan and have a different type of stress than electric systems.
Electrical hot water systems are the most expensive to run in comparison with others and will have the highest impact on your bill. When choosing electric, consider the size of your home, how many people will be using the water, and the current cost of your bills, to determine whether the costs will be worth the reliability and efficiency.
All hot water systems need a water heater to make the water hot. The mechanisms of the heaters depend on what type of hot water unit you have. Tankless systems work by drawing in air, opening the valve and igniting the flame. A tank storage water heater will bring a continuous flow hot water once you turn on the tap, the water is then heated by a heating mechanism at the bottom of the tank.
Generally, if gas is available to you, it will be the cheapest to run, with the cost not impacting the electricity bill. If gas isn’t available, electric hot water systems are a close competitor, with the water only heating when needed. A tank that will store the hot water is the best option for larger households, but if your hot water usage is sporadic or low, a system that only heats with the useage may be a better option. Our specialists can work with you to determine the best option for your specific household and situation. There are many factors to match the many different available hot water systems, and we can determine what will be best for you in the long term.
The right system for each family and situation will differ depending on a number of factors. One call to our friendly team and we can help you to determine what will suit your situation best, and set you up with the most efficient and cost-friendly solution.
Healthy hot water systems shouldn’t make any noise, and if yours is, chances are you’re due for a checkup or service. Any sounds that aren’t normal to come from your hot water systems, such as popping, hissing or groaning, need immediate attention. Most hot water systems will come with a pilot light or emergency beep system to let you know when something is wrong with the mechanisms. Some other things to look out for include
- Water is leaking from the system.
- The system is rattling or shaking.
- The pilot light is malfunctioning.
- You consistently run out of hot water
- The water pressure is unstable.
- The system is making strange or loud sounds.
- The water heat is unstable.
- The water has rust or has dirt in it.
- The water is running cold.
If any or multiple of these issues occur, contact our friendly team for our same day service, in order to avoid costly or difficult repairs in the future. If your water runs cold, that is considered an essential service and our emergency team can be there to help.
There are four main types of hot water heaters and systems. A solar hot water system is boosted by either gas or electricity and receive most of their energy supply from the sun, making Solar Water Heaters the most efficient. Households with solar heating may be eligible for government rebates (call our team for more information). Good quality gas water heaters are the next best option and may be the best option for larger households. If gas or solar isn’t available to you, a heat pump or tank systems are the next in line to provide reliable water heating, good quality, and consistent hot water supply.
The cost of a new hot water system relies on a few different factors. Different hot water systems will vary in size, features and price. Your property may only have a particular storage range, and this needs to be considered when selecting your system. We provide prices based on the type or brand so you can stick within a budget, and one call to our friendly team for a free quote will leave you feeling confident about your options.
