Electric hot water systems
Electric hot water systems use an electric element to heat water. Fairly common in households, the most price-effective option is an off-peak unit – only heating water at night, rather than across the entire day. However, this also means you often require a larger unit to hold enough hot water for the following day.
Electric hot water systems are a popular choice, with lower upfront installation costs and quick installation and replacement turnaround times.
Gas hot water systems
Using a gas burner in place of an element, gas hot water systems have higher energy efficiency than their electric counterparts. These units can also be smaller, as there are no costs associated with running the burner as needed.
