Factors determining choice of a hot water system
There are a number of considerations to be made before selecting any type of a water system. Some of these include:
• The size of your family/household and the hot water delivery requirements.
• The weather patterns of your particular locality and the available energy sources such as natural gas, LPG, electricity and Solar energy sources such as the amount of sunlight.
• The available budget
The nature of the building and where the system will be located i.e. outside or inside your home building. You have to consider whether you have enough north facing installation area for the solar collectors.
Types of domestic hot water-systems include:
• Electric Storage tanks, Heat pumps and Electric Boosted Solar. These are the major typical systems for home installations where there is no natural gas access.
• Gas Storage tanks, Gas boosted solar and Gas Continuous Flow. The typical systems where natural gas is available in plenty
The choices you make all depend on what you want to achieve such as:
• You are looking at environmental issues and you want to achieve reduced carbon emissions. A solar water heater will work best for you.
• You are looking at the weather patterns in your region. If the weather is cloudy or the demand for hot water is high, solar panels are supplemented with electric or gas boosters.
• The building you live in might not have a suitable roof area for proper orientation or for solar collector’s installation. It is then better to go for a heat pump heater which is a good alternative to the old conventional external electric heaters.
In case your property has reticulated mains-natural gas available, you then need to think of a continuous flow water-heater or a high-efficiency gas-storage. These will be easy to install for your professional plumber. Please be aware that gas hot water applications installed on bottled LPG are susceptible to running very high costs even ranging from $700-$900 a year. It, therefore, means that although the upfront cost is lower for gas systems, the solar system will be the preferable option in the long run.
