Don’t void your water heater warranty – Most water heater manufacturers won’t cover the terms of your warranty if it isn’t installed by a licensed tradesperson. Your hot water system is an expensive appliance – don’t risk voiding your warranty by installing it yourself or employing the services of someone who isn’t qualified and experienced.
Types of hot water services
Gas Hot Water Heaters
Gas systems make up approximately 48 per cent of hot water heaters in Australia. Gas hot water services include the following types:
1. Storage gas hot water systems heat the water using a gas burner located underneath the storage tank. They usually have a continuously burning pilot flame that ignites the main burner when it is needed. Heat is then transferred from the gas burner through the bottom of the cylinder. Some heat also flows from the hot flue pipe into the water. When hot water is drawn off at the top of the tank, cold water enters the tank at the bottom.
2. Instantaneous or continuous flow gas hot water systems, also called continuous flow, don’t have storage tanks and heat water as required. A gas burner heats the water as it flows through a coiled pipe called a heat exchanger. The gas burner starts when a hot water tap is turned on, only heating the amount of water that is required instead of continuously heating a full tank. This is more economical as there is no heat loss caused by storing hot water in a tank.
3. Solar water heaters with instantaneous gas boosting.
Electric Hot Water Heaters
With 25% of the energy usage in our homes being used to heat hot water, did you know that 52% of this is for electric water heating.
An electric hot water system consists of an insulated storage tank, usually a cylinder, where hot water is kept ready to be used. The water is heated in the tank by electric resistance elements at at pre-set temperature of around 60-80°C. Electric hot water heaters heat the water the same way an electric kettle heats water, the difference being that your hot water system keeps the water hot at all times. Over time, the water temperature in the tank decreases through heat losses and usage (called draw-offs). This results in the tank being refilled with cold water which in turn lowers the overall temperature of water in the tank and needs to be heated once again.
Instantaneous water heaters heat the water on demand. There is not storage tank which makes them ideal for very small spaces like apartments, boats, caravans, etc. While these are not as popular as the more common hot water tank varieties, they still have a place in modern living spaces and we are regularly called to repair and replace them. Instantaneous or, continuous flow water heaters as they are also called, are designed to deliver a steady stream of heated water. Each time a tap is turned on, the water is heated instantly by electricity and then flows to the outlet. Instantaneous electric water heaters typically requires high power inputs, particularly if more than one unit is running at once. In some cases three phase power is required, in others single phase power is adequate. For obvious reasons, instantaneous systems never run out of hot water as the water is heated on demand. They do not suffer heat loss as there is no storage tank.
Solar Hot Water Systems
Using solar energy to heat water is an effective way to use our abundant sunshine thereby saving energy, money and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. There are two main types of solar hot water systems:
- roof top system
- split system
Roof top solar hot water systems are perfect if you have ample free roof space. Roof top solar for example, work by mounting the solar panels and storage tank together on the roof. The collectors draw the sun’s energy into fluid in the solar collectors, then the heated fluid circulates the adjacent storage tank.
Split solar hot water systems are perfect if you have limited roof space or you prefer a more streamline look, then a split loline solar water heater may be the best solution. Whilst the solar panels are mounted on the roof, the storage tank is located at ground level.
