The types of hot water systems

overwhelming trying them all on for size. Your home’s hot water system does an amazing amount of work each day and accounts for a significant amount of your household energy consumption. That means you need something that’s powerful enough whilst also energy-efficient. There are two main types of hot water systems, storage hot water heaters, and continuous flow hot water systems. Within these two types you’ll find:

a continuous flow hot water heater

Continuous Flow Water Heaters

A continuous flow water heater, also known as an instant water heater, is a type of water heating system that heats water on demand. Unlike conventional storage tank water heaters, which keep a reservoir of hot water at all times, continuous water heaters only heat the water when you need it. This typically makes continuous flow water heaters more energy-efficient, however, you don’t provide as much water as a storage hot water system so they aren’t recommended for larger houses.

Storage Hot Water Systems

As the name suggests, storage hot water systems store water in a tank and then heats it when the unit is on. They come in a variety of tank sizes to suit the requirements of your household and can be solar, gas, heat pump or electric. Storage hot water systems are a popular choice because they can store large amounts of hot water for later use. However, it’s important you choose an energy source that is suitable for your needs as operating costs can be high.

Hot Water System FAQs

It depends on the quality of the hot water system, but generally, they last between 10 and 15 years. However, if you have a high-quality system that’s well maintained, it could last up to 20 years!

It's important to remember that the life of your hot water system also depends on how well you take care of it. If you maintain it regularly and keep it clean, it will last longer than if you don't take care of it. So be sure to schedule regular maintenance and cleaning to get the most out of your hot water system.

The most energy-efficient hot water systems depend on your hot water usage and the size of your house. However, solar and heat pump hot water systems are often considered to have high energy efficiency. The heat pump is a system that uses electricity to move heat from one place to another. It extracts heat from the air, ground, or water and uses it to warm up the water in your hot water tank. The solar system uses the sun's energy to warm up the water in your hot water tank. It consists of panels that collect sunlight and convert it into thermal energy. This thermal energy is then used to heat up the water in your tank. Be sure to chat with our team for advice on the most energy-efficient hot water system for your home.

Hot water systems can take a while to heat up, depending on the type of system you have. Storage tank systems can take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour to heat up, while Tankless or continuous systems can heat water almost instantaneously. Solar hot water systems can also take a while to heat up, especially if the sun isn't out.

There are a few things that you can do to help your hot water system heat up faster. First, make sure that the area around your water heater is clear and unblocked. This will help ensure that hot air can circulate properly around the unit. Secondly, check the manufacturer's instructions to see if there are any recommended settings for your specific model. Finally, ensure you keep up to date with scheduled maintenance.

There are many things to consider when choosing the right type of hot water system for your home. The first step is to talk to a licensed plumber, who can assess your needs and recommend the best option for you. They will take into consideration the size of your home, the number of people who live there, your water pressure, and more. Rest assured, the team at Swan’s Professional Plumbing are here to help!

A storage hot water system is one in which water is heated and stored in a tank for later use. A continuous hot water system, on the other hand, provides hot water on demand without the need for a storage tank. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it’s important to choose the right system for your household needs.

The plumbers at Swan’s Professional Plumbing work with all major brands such as Rinnai, Rheem and Vulcan to name a few. If you’re looking for advice on different hot water brands, get in contact with the team to chat with our plumbers.
