Hot water systems are essential for every household. From taking a relaxing shower at the end of the day, to thoroughly washing your dishes, a quality hot water system will keep you and your home running smoothly and efficiently. Whether you are in search of hot water system maintenance and repairs on the Central Coast, or require installation of a brand new unit, many local plumbers, electricians and specialists offer a variety of hot water solutions you can depend on. Servicing a range of trusted brands, including Rheem, Dux, Bosch, Kelvinator, Envirosun and more, your hot water problem can often be fixed quickly and for an affordable price. There are many different hot water system technologies on the market, depending on your needs and budget. Starting with two basic types—storage systems and continuous flow systems—different energy sources can then be used to heat the water, including solar, gas, electricity and even air. Storage heaters rely on an insulated tank, which holds hot water for use when required. These systems are very common but can waste energy as they typically heat more water than needed. Alternatively, continuous flow water heaters work by warming copper pipes as the water passes through, meaning only the water being used is heated. Electrical water heating systems rely on grid power and are an inexpensive solution to your hot water needs. Working as both continuous flow and storage systems, electrical units are also available with heat pumps, allowing you to harness power from warm outside air, lowering your energy bills and saving you
money in the long term. With commercial grade stainless steel tanks available, electrical hot water units can be used for a variety of applications and are quick and simple to install in comparison with other technologies. Natural and LPG gas systems are better for the environment than heating your water through the grid. Contact a Central Coast hot water specialist for installation of a continuous flow or storage gas system that has been optimised to reduce energy costs. Whether you require bottled LPG or natural gas from a piped network, you will find a range of gas hot water solutions to suit your home or business.
