Whether you live in an inner-city apartment or on a quarter-acre block, in modern Australian households the need to save space is greater than ever.
While the traditional hot water tank has been a fixture in Aussie households for as long as anyone can remember, the tankless water heater gives you reliable and consistent heating all year ’round.
Installing a tankless hot water system will save you considerable space – while also delivering environmental and financial benefits.
What is a tankless water heater?
Tankless water heaters do pretty much what it says on the packet – covering your hot water demands without the need of a hot water tank.
These devices are generally wall-mounted and will most often trigger automatically when a hot tap is turned on.
Cold water will then flow through heated copper piping, taking just moments to warm up before it comes out of the tap.
At Australian Hot Water, we have tankless hot water systems compatible with both gas and electric, meaning we’ve got you covered – regardless of your household energy source.
What are the benefits of a tankless hot water system?
As there is no need to store the hot water, the first benefit to mention is space. Tankless hot water systems are much smaller than traditional tanks, meaning they will give you plenty more space in your laundry, bathroom, patio area or wherever else.
Keeping heated water in a tank also uses plenty of energy as you need to keep the water hot and ready regardless of whether you aren’t using it. Even well insulated hot water tanks lose plenty of heat – meaning you could be basically throwing money away.
Even if you’ve only got a small budget, upgrading your current system to a tankless one will save you money right off the bat.
The energy savings of tankless systems means they are also better for the environment. In most households, heating water accounts for 20 to 30 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions, so installing a tankless system will immediately reduce your carbon footprint.
Of the systems available, gas systems tend to be more efficient than electronic ones, but there are plenty of great electronic options.
Australian Hot Water have all of the world’s best brands – including Bosch, Rheem, Rinnai and Dux – offering you plenty of tankless options to suit your home, your family and your budget.
