Instantaneous Gas Hot Water Systems

One of the most efficient types of hot water units is the instantaneous gas hot water systems. Also known as continuous flow, water is heated on demand, unlike an electric storage tank which has to keep water hot day and night. So as the water flows through the unit it’s warmed by a gas burner.

Gas hot water systems are easily recognisable as a small wall mounted box on the outside (or occasionally inside) your home. There are also gas storage tanks, although the tall box has fallen out of favour.

Thanks to the natural gas fuel source you’re heating water at just one third of the price electricity does.

But if that gas ignition starts flickering and the pilot light goes out, or your hot water keeps fluctuating, you need a fast solution.

Jim’s Plumbing has fully qualified gas fitters available for emergency repairs, general maintenance and upkeep, plus dedicated installation.

We can source and supply brand new gas hot water systems if needed, and also ensure any gas connections are safe and secure. So if it’s time to for a service or you just need a plumber now, call Jim’s Plumbing.

Electric Hot Water Systems

Most Australians are familiar with electric hot water systems, recognising the large storage tank often found in a backyard. They store a serious amount of water, some up to 400 litres, and provide a constant supply of steaming hot water.

It's a great system for larger households with peak demand periods. Low installation pricing also makes it a very enticing water heater.

However, over the years the high running costs have developed into a major drawback. As water is heated inside the tank, ambient heat energy is lost despite insulation. While it's not a major concern for everyone, here at Jim's Plumbing we recommend you always go for the most energy efficient electric hot water system.

Electric hot water is a reliable choice for households where gas is not an option. Many opt for solar power to reduce the costs, while others go for water saving methods like shorter showers.

The key to efficiency is knowing just what your home needs. You want a system which can meet your home's demands and is suited to factors like weather conditions, space requirements, etc.

And when it does come to hot water installation or servicing, Jim's Plumbing offers expert advice. We'll make sure you have the best set up possible.

Heat Pump Hot Water Systems

For something a touch different, why not go for a heat pump? Using a combination of electricity and warm air converted to heat, the influx of renewable energy will save you money over the years.

Compared to traditional electric hot water systems, heat pumps are far more efficient. They can create up to three times as much heat energy, which is perfect for any home.

As it relies on warm air hot conditions are best, although heat pumps can perform well in cooler locales. It just may not be as effective. Plus, the sound can be quite loud as the fan draws in external air while in use.

Solar Hot Water Systems

Solar hot water systems harness the sun’s energy and are undoubtedly the most efficient hot water system on the market. There are certainly upsides to solar, like reduced carbon emissions and low running costs.

Some of the best benefits of using solar hot water systems include:

  • Low running costs and cheap energy bills
  • Utilises renewable energy
  • Very efficient in sunny climates
  • Maximises potential output in cooler/overcast climates

The initial price of solar hot water systems is often the biggest obstacle for many homeowners, however over the lifetime of the appliance you more than make up for it. You can enjoy lifetime service and a consistent supply.

Meanwhile, when the clouds do roll in, either a gas or electric booster will ensure you still have 100 per cent output. Nothing can stop solar.
