What Is an Electric Hot Water System?

An electric hot water system is a hot water system that connects to an electric power outlet and uses electric energy to heat water for use in homes and commercial buildings. Electric hot water systems either heat water for instantaneous use (instantaneous hot water heater) or store hot water in a tank, insulating it for when it is required.

Electric hot water systems have historically been far more common in Australia than gas systems, primarily as there are less available natural gas mains supply networks in some metropolitan areas. In homes where natural gas is available, electric heating tanks have gone out of fashion as they have tended to be less energy efficient and required more space in the home. These days, however, there are a number of continuous electric hot water options which can operate completely without a tank.

Types of Electric Water Heaters

There are two main types of electric hot water systems: instantaneous electric hot water heaters, and electric hot water tanks. A tank system maintains a large amount of water in an insulated storage tank, keeping the water hot and heating it when necessary. An instantaneous system is a much smaller unit that only heats the water that passes through it as and when it’s needed.

There are also a range of other options, such as solar hot water systems and heat pump systems, which incorporate low amounts of electricity to help boost temperature when required.

Electric vs Gas Hot Water Systems

Electric hot water systems generally have a lower initial cost. Because they run on a normal electric power supply, they are also much easier and cheaper to install.

Gas hot water heaters also require being connected to a gas line, which might be difficult to do if there isn’t already a connection in the house or building.

Over time some electric hot water systems do tend to be less efficient and more costly to run than gas heaters.
