Inner West Hot Water System Types
Electric, heat pump, gas, and solar are the four main types of hot water systems, each having its own set of advantages and disadvantages:
1. Water is heated by electric equipment and stored in a tank until it is needed. These systems have cheap starting expenses, but they can take up a lot of room. They also take a while to refill with useful hot water after they’ve been drained, don’t work at all during a power outage, and have the greatest long-term operating costs.
2. Heat pump-based systems utilize electricity as well, but much less of it, resulting in significantly enhanced energy efficiency and longer longevity. However, the initial setup costs are more than for simple electric-powered devices.
3. Gas-powered systems are less expensive to operate, can operate in the event of a power loss, and can heat far more water than electric systems. They are, however, more expensive to install at first.
4. Solar-powered systems are typically more expensive to install than electric or gas-powered systems, and they also require a significant amount of roof space. Once the initial installation is complete, they are incredibly eco-friendly and low-cost to run.
