Why Choose a Rheem Electric Hot Water System?
Designed and manufactured in Australia, Rheem 250L systems are reliable hot water solutions for Australian homes. Rheem specially builds its systems to withstand the Australian extremes using only the most suitable and robust materials like stainless steel and high-grade enamel. The latest range of electric hot water systems is also more advanced and efficient than what came before.
Much like a kettle, an electric hot water heater uses an element or two located inside a unit to heat your water. The heated water is stored and kept hot until you’re ready to use it.
While electric hot water systems are not as efficient as the gas alternatives, electric water heaters do benefit from more affordable installation and lower-priced maintenance.

How Long to Heat an Electric Hot Water Heater?
The time it takes to heat water in an electric system all depends on the size of the tank (unit). For a 250 litre tank, similar to the Rheem 250L, it will take approximately 2-4hrs to heat up. Although once the water is heated, you shouldn’t have to worry about this again unless the electricity is disconnected.
What Size Electric Hot Water System do I Need?
Hot water requirements will always differ depending on the size of your household, and the usage of hot water. This simple guide is based on an average daily water usage of 55L per person. It will help you determine what size electric hot water system to purchase should you loathe the idea of cold showers:

- 2-3 people – 165L
- 3-5 people – 275L
- 5-7 people – 385L
How to Adjust the Temperature of an Electric Hot Water System
Did you know the temperature of an electric hot water system can be changed? It’s not a widely known fact mainly because it’s the sort of task that requires a plumber. Attempting to change the thermostat yourself could result in serious harm and potentially damaging your water heater.
