Choosing the right gas hot water system
Australian Hot Water supplies and installs a wide range of gas hot water systems from all the leading manufacturers. An important consideration with gas hot water systems is their energy rating. All gas hot water heaters have an energy-rating label and more stars means more energy efficiency.
Gas hot water systems are a great choice for energy conscious customers. They produce less greenhouse gases than electric heaters and are often cheaper to run. Gas storage systems also have faster heat recovery times and require a smaller storage tank as gas is available 24 hours a day. However, a natural gas supply is required as bottled LPG can be at a higher running cost and requires self-monitoring to ensure not to run out of gas at crucial times. Some natural gas and LPG installation costs can be slightly higher than electric hot water systems due to larger pipe sizing or regulator setups.
Australian Hot Water have the nation’s leading water heating sales and repair team, meaning that we know how to fix or install the hot water system which is perfect for you and your family’s needs before winter rolls around.
The first choice you’ll need to make is whether to install a gas or electric hot water system. There’s no correct answer to the electric versus gas hot water system debate. Instead, it will depend on your hot water needs, your location and your other priorities, such as desired electricity usage and environmental impact.

What is a gas hot water system?
As you might have guessed, a gas hot water system is a water heating system where the main fuel used is natural gas. Hot water systems that use gas haven’t been as common in Australia traditionally as the humble electric tank, although that is starting to change as the gas grid has expanded and modern style electronic ignition continuous flow water heaters that have features like touch pad tempreture control have now evolved .
Types of Gas Water Heaters
The most common preferred type of gas water heater is the tankless heating system, or also be known as a continuous flow . Although there are also a variety which do include a storage tank and have 5 star efficiency . Many will require you to be connected to the natural gas line, although there are plenty of options that can be plumbed to LPG bottled gas if there is no natural gas in your area.
Electric vs Gas Hot Water Systems
Each system has a range of advantages and disadvantages, so it’s best to know which one will be the right one for you. Gas hot water systems tend to be more efficient than electric hot water systems, while they also produce significantly fewer greenhouse gas emissions.
Gas continuous flow hot water systems are known to be more immediate and sustainable than some electric hot water systems as there’s no need to rely on a tank to store your hot water, however they do not work during power outages. These days however there have been a number of advances in electric water heating technology, with a variety of improved continuous electric hot water systems on the market.
Another advantage of gas hot water systems is that - unlike electricity - there are no time of day tariffs for using gas, meaning that it’ll cost you the same no matter when you want to take that shower or run the bath.
