Gas Hot Water Systems
Heating water can account for up to 25% of an average household’s energy use. So, it is important to gain the maximum energy efficiency from your hot water system. Electric hot water systems that can heat your domestic hot water at any time of day are the most expensive. Off-peak electric water heating systems that only heat your water when the electricity tariffs are lower have similar running costs to gas hot water units, depending on your electricity tariffs. But, they only heat your hot water during off-peak times. Gas hot water saves you money, is more energy efficient than electric hot water and is kinder to the environment. A new gas hot water heater can save up to 33% of your greenhouse gas emissions when compared with an equivalent electric storage heater. This massive saving is similar to taking an average sized car off of the road. Hot water systems powered by gas can also be used in conjunction with solar hot water. Gas water heating systems can burn either natural gas or bottled gas (LPG) and they are available as either a gas storage system or instantaneous gas system. If you live in an area without a natural gas supply, LPG is available across South Australia.

Types of Gas Water Heaters
Which is the best gas hot water heater for your water heating needs? Finding the best system for your hot water requirements can depend very much on your particular household’s water heating requirements. Our water heating advice for the best gas hot water system to suit your needs will depend on various factors. Like; how many people live in your home? How many bathrooms does your home have? Do you have either natural gas or bottled gas (LPG)? Would you prefer to spend a little more on your gas hot water appliance now so you can save more on your energy bills? Or are you looking for a cheap gas hot water system today? Do you need advice on cheap gas hot water systems? Do you need your current gas hot water replacing today? These questions can help us to determine the best gas hot water system to suit your needs. Our advice will change depending on your requirements and the best gas hot water heaters to suit your needs may not be the best hot water heaters gas or electric to suit all hot water requirements. When choosing gas hot water there is two main types to consider, either instantaneous gas hot water or gas storage hot water.
Continuous Gas Hot Water
Continuous gas hot water, continuous flow, instantaneous, tankless gas hot water or on-demand gas hot water are all terms used to describe a water heating system that heats water using gas as and when required. Unlike hot water storage units there is no hot water tank storing hot water that may or may not be being used. This can help save even more money on your gas hot water bills by not heating water that is not being used. Continuous hot water gas systems are available in two different types. The simplest type has a fixed burner so the temperature of the water will vary with the rate of water flow. The simple continuous flow gas hot water systems usually have a pilot flame or battery ignition. These tankless gas water heaters are a continuous flow hot water system that does not need an electricity supply. They are usually limited to low flow rates of less than 16 litres per minute. These small gas continuous hot water systems are not suitable for domestic water heating in homes of more than one bathroom. They are usually the cheapest gas hot water systems to purchase and install.
The more advanced instantaneous gas water heaters can be fitted with electronic controls that vary the flame size on the water heater. This allows the hot water flow from the gas hot water heater to deliver hot water at a constant preset temperature. Internal fans inside the unit assist in the combustion efficiency and help improve the hot water efficiency. When these units are fitted with temperature controls inside the home, this allows for greater control of your hot water as you can set the water temperature as required. When you preset the water temperature to exactly the temperature you require, you don’t need to mix hot and cold water together to ensure a safe and comfortable bathing temperature.
If you are looking to save even more money on your hot water, consider the highly efficient, condensing instantaneous water heating systems. Instantaneous condensing gas hot water uses the heat from the units exhaust to pre-heat the cold water. By using the waste exhaust heat before it enters the heat exchanger the gas hot water energy consumed is further reduced. Instantaneous condensing units are rated at 6 stars as this is the highest energy efficiency rating. It can therefore be more appropriate to compare these units by the MJ per year energy consumption figure on the label. This is currently the maximum rating, so when comparing two gas hot water heaters look for the energy rating and the mega joule (MJ) usage per year in each unit’s energy consumption. Instant gas hot water is convenient and can be incredibly energy efficient. An instant gas hot water heater can cost as little as a few hundred dollars when replacing an existing instant gas hot water system. These units have a compact design and they are great for when space is limited. Instant gas hot water heaters are available in a range of makes including Bosch, Dux, Rheem and Rinnai. When you compare these systems to heat pump or solar hot water systems, they are the lowest cost alternative to purchase and install. If you are looking for and instant gas hot water system price call us today on (08) 8444 7311. Adelaide Hot Water can repair or replace your instantaneous gas hot water systems in less than 24 hours.
All gas storage systems work in a very similar way. Gas storage hot water systems have four main variations. Firstly, what is the tank material? The most common gas hot water storage tank material is enamelled steel as it is cheap and long-lasting. However, if you wish to buy a gas hot water storage unit consider a system which is fitted with a stainless steel tank. Stainless steel tanks usually last longer than enamelled steel tanks that are fitted to hot water gas storage systems. The second major difference is the tank size; make sure to purchase a hot water tank that is big enough for your current needs but also for any future needs. Are you planning to increase your family size, purchasing a spa or increasing the number of bathrooms in your home? The third major difference in a gas storage system is the burner and flue technology. Some models of gas hot water heaters use a special flue system. To improve efficiency, these flue systems recirculate the heat from the flue around the outside of the water heating tank. This increases the heat transfer in to the water of the gas hot water system and increases their efficiency. The fourth most important difference is where the hot water system will be located. Hot water systems that are flued by gas and are installed indoors need a flue to exhaust the gases outdoors.
Instantaneous Gas Hot Water or Gas Storage Hot Water?
Put very simply, instantaneous water heaters heat water instantly, while gas storage water heaters store hot water in a tank.

- For a low cost/big impact try changing your shower rose to a AAA rated shower rose. Just this on it’s own can save about 25% of hot water energy usage
- Try reducing your shower time to as short as possible. Showering for around 4 minutes allows for a comfortable shower without the big energy bills. It is also best to bathe very occasionally.
- If you’re going away for an extended period, save wasting energy maintaining set thermostat temperatures on gas storage heaters by turning your hot water unit off
- Next time you need to replace your hot water gas or electric system consider upgrading your water heater to a solar hot water or heat pump hot water system
Gas instant hot water and hot water tank gas systems are both cheap systems to run and can be installed quickly and at a cost effective price. Gas instant has the added advantage of not having to store hot water in a tank at the expense of keeping the water hot. Gas hot water tank prices can vary depending on the tank size, tank material, make and model and any additions that may be required. Gas hot water tanks typically last for 10 to 15 years and so when considering a gas hot water unit it is worth considering gas boosted solar. A gas boosted solar hot water system can help save you a large amount of money offer the lifetime of the gas boosted solar hot water appliance. If you currently have electric hot water consider the pros and cons of gas hot water vs electric hot water. Mains gas systems are cheaper to run than electric gas water heaters.
