Gas & Electric Hot Water Systems Perth

Around 27% of the average WA household’s energy consumption goes to heating water. The more people you have in your home, the more hot water you use.

Reducing the amount of energy required to heat water or finding alternative ways to heat water can significantly reduce your power bill. A new hot water system for your Perth home can give you hot water where and when you need it.

Choosing the right system can help you maximise your long term savings. REnew Energy offers free consultations and assessments to help you find the water heating system that best suits your needs.

Hot Water Systems Perth

Traditional hot water systems in Perth come in two categories: gas and electric. Around 67% of Perth residents use gas for water heating. In WA overall, about 62% of homeowners use gas, with the remainder of households split almost evenly between solar and electric hot water systems.

Hot water systems work in two different ways. Instant or continuous flow systems heat water on demand. Storage hot water systems heat a large amount of water in a tank and keep it at a consistent temperature until you need it.

Most people use gas to heat their water in Australia. You can choose from an instant- or storage-based gas hot water system.

Instant Gas Hot Water Systems

Instant gas hot water systems are more energy-efficient than storage-based ones. They feature a small, tankless design that you can tuck away in a closet or behind a low wall, and they don’t lose nearly as much heat as a big tank. 

The water runs into the heater from one side, where the system heats it instantly as it passes through the unit. It then delivers hot water on demand for as long as you need it.

Gas only turns on when you’re using the water heater. Unless you have a faucet running and demanding hot water, the unit remains in stasis. Once you turn on a hot tap, the gas kicks on, and the unit heats the water. 

If you use a lot of water in your home, you might want to consider an instant gas water heater. You can use an unlimited amount of hot water without ever running out. Since the gas fonly kicks on intermittently, you can save on your gas bill.

Storage Gas Hot Water Systems

A gas storage hot water system has a large water storage tank positioned over a dedicated gas burner. The continuous pilot flame triggers the main burner when the water in the tank drops below the preset temperature. Hot water exits the tank from the top, and cold water enters the tank at the bottom. 

Most units have a thermostat you can adjust to control the temperature of the tank water. If you don’t use much water, you can keep the heat of the tank lower. If you use more hot water, you can crank up the temperature and mix with cold at the tap.  

Your gas hot water storage tank will typically store between 135L and 170L, although smaller and larger containers are available. If you have a large house, you may wish to have two hot water tanks to allow heated water to reach taps on opposite ends of the home more quickly.
