Working With All Hot Water System Types
When it comes to gas hot water systems, knowing which type of system you want and what each offers is important. The two main types available are gas storage water heaters and instantaneous or continuous flow systems. Also available are solar-powered hot water systems that use gas as an energy boost when the sun is not at its peak. Plumber Near Me offers a wealth of experience and knowledge across each option, and is happy to help you make the right decision for your home.
Gas Storage Systems
As its name suggests, a gas storage system holds water in a storage tank where it is heated to its required temperature by an LPG or natural gas burner. Storage systems come in a range of sizes to accommodate all needs. You’ll find everything from a slimline unit ideal for small to medium households, to larger tank sizes suitable for larger properties.
Gas storage hot water systems offer notable benefits. Compared to electric hot water systems, they boast a faster recovery rate. This means they can refill and heat water to the desired temperature much quicker. They also typically come with lower operating costs due to the rising cost of electricity.
They’re not without their drawbacks, however. Gas storage tanks can lose heat, even when insulated, which affects their overall efficiency. And once the tank has run out of water, you’ll need to wait for it to refill and reheat.
Instantaneous or Continuous Flow Systems
On the other hand, instantaneous hot water units don’t come with a storage tank. It uses a natural gas burner to heat water instantly. And just as the continuous flow name indicates, the hot water flows consistently and continuously. That means you can enjoy reliable hot water on demand when you need it.
This means lower running costs as there’s no unnecessary water heating throughout the day. You only heat water when you turn on the tap, which is better for your energy consumption and therefore your energy bill as well. Continuous flow hot water heaters come in various sizes and offer easy installation. Models start at as little as 10 litres per minute and can go all the way up to 32 litres per minute. The many benefits of instantaneous systems include:
- High energy efficiency
- Compact installation
- Hot water on demand
- Lower running costs
- No heat energy wastage
- Increased water hygiene
Thanks to their small, sleek sizing you can enjoy versatile placement inside or outside the home – as long as a specific internal unit is used.
Gas-boosted Solar Powered Systems
Arguably the most environmentally friendly and energy-efficient option on the market is a solar-powered hot water system, which heats water using the sun’s energy. Of course, the sun’s energy can be stronger at certain times of the year than others, so these systems supplement that energy with a gas boost when needed. The booster is only used when solar energy can’t produce the full amount of energy required. It’s an effective way to ensure you always have hot water all year round without relying on electricity.
Mr Emergency works with gas continuous flow units, gas storage tanks or gas-boosted solar. Meanwhile, we can also provide durable, long-term repairs to your natural gas connection. With reliable after-hours service and committed 24/7 attendance, we will ensure you never run out of hot water. Contact us now to learn more or to book your local hot water technician.

Interest Free** Gas Hot Water Systems
The upfront purchase and installation costs of a gas water heating are generally higher than an electric unit. However, the running costs are lower and you’ll be saving money within a couple of years. Any additional gas work may also impact the price. But if you’re starting from scratch with a new gas connection, the additional costs are necessary.

Enjoy Flexible and Convenient Payment Options
You can start by choosing a plan with one of our providers – Zip or Humm. You have the flexibility of weekly, fortnightly or monthly instalments, depending on the plan you choose. Some plans even accept a $0 deposit, giving you extra financial breathing space when you need it.
Your gas fitter can take you through the easy application process and approval usually takes only a few minutes. If you’re not interested in a payment plan, we also accept cash, cheque, EFTPOS and credit card payments (Visa, Mastercard and American Express).
