What is an electric hot water system?
As the name suggests, an electric hot water system runs on electricity. They are generally cheaper to install but the disadvantage is that they cost much more to run.
Electric hot water systems come in two main types: storage (tank) and instant (tankless). Electric hot water systems use an electrical element inside the hot water tank to heat the hot water storage tank. Electric storage systems heat water within the tank. Tank sizes can vary from about 25L to 400L. They are common in many Adelaide households but with rising electricity costs and people wanting to contribute less to greenhouse emissions, their popularity is reducing.
You can opt for an off-peak hot water system which heats the water overnight but you will need a bigger tank to make sure there will be enough hot water in the morning, depending on how many people in your household.
What are the benefits of using an electric hot water system?
Electric instant water heaters function on-demand by drawing high amounts of power to continuously heat water. These models are becoming more popular, as they essentially provide limitless hot water, allowing for endless showers for households of all sizes:
- Ideal for homes or offices with no gas connection
- Less upfront purchasing cost
- Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use
- Capacities to suit all household sizes
- Designed for Australia’s tough conditions
- Electric instantaneous water heaters are also available
