We supply and install a vast range of hot water solutions from New Zealand’s leading manufacturers. An important consideration with hot water solutions these days, is their energy rating. Many hot water appliances have an energy-rating label attached – the more stars, the more efficient. This is not a requirement from government, however, manufacturers are, for the most part are responsible marketing their product. Energy efficiency is not the only thing to consider… pick up the phone and call us to find out more on 0800 520 400.

The initial decision you need to make is whether to install an electric, gas, or solar hot water system. Depending on your hot water requirements, the location. You may even have other priorities, such environmental impact or desired running costs. All installations are unique.

Gas hot water solutions

For energy-conscious customers, a gas hot water solution is a great choice. They are often cheaper to run and overall are more environmentally-friendly than electric solutions. As gas is available 24/7, gas systems use a smaller storage tank thus having a faster heat-recovery. Natural gas supply is preferred by most for cost, however, bottled LPG gas can be used. LPG does cost more and requires monitoring to make sure that hot water is always available. The flipside to gas hot water systems though is that installation costs are normally more than electric solutions.

Rheem Hot Water Cylinder

Electric hot water systems

Design of a hot water cylinder hasn’t really changed over the years. An electrical element heats the water and it is stored in a tank (cylinder), however, there have been great improvements to insulation, elements and thermostats. Typically, if you can get power and water to a location, an electric hot water system can be fitted almost anywhere. Please be aware that current building regulations require a hot water cylinder must sit in a tray with drainage.

Solar Hot Water

Solar hot water systems

It is generally accepted that 20% of the energy consumed in an average home is used in the bathroom, kitchen and laundry – hot water is the culprit. Heating water uses a lot of energy. You’re paying two costs when you use hot water – one is for the energy required to heat the water and one for the water you actually use. A solar hot water system is an efficient way to reducing your ongoing hot water costs.

A typical solar hot water system basically operates by ‘topping up’ the heat stored in a hot water cylinder. During the day, a solar system draws energy from the sun and passes water through a heat exchange. More sun, the more efficient the systems are. At night or on a very cloudy day, a backup heat source (gas or electric) switches over to make sure the water temperature is boosted the setting on the thermostat.

When making a decision about solar hot water, don’t just look at the installation price, consider how large capacity needs to be, where the location of panels and cylinder will be, and the type of ‘top-up’ system you want to use.
