Electric Hot Water Systems
Electric Hot Water Systems work similarly to natural gas storage systems. Cold water is piped into the tank where it is then heated, then it rises to the top and is siphoned off when the hot tap is turned on. The difference is where the heating occurs. In an electric model, one or two elements are located inside the water, warming it from the inside. Because the heating occurs in the tank there is no need for a flue.
Gas Hot Water Systems
Gas hot water systems burn either natural gas (also called mains gas or reticulated gas) delivered via a piped network, or LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) which is usually bottled. They can be a good solution depending on your circumstances – for example, if you live in an area with limited sunlight for a solar hot water system or if a heat pump hot water system is not suitable.
Heat Pump Products
Think of a heat pump as a heat transporter constantly moving warm air from one place to another, to where it is needed or not needed, depending on the season. Even in air that seems too cold, heat energy is present. When it’s cold outside a heat pump extracts this outside heat and transfers it inside. When it’s warm outside, it reverses directions and acts like an air conditioner, removing heat from your home.
One advantage of a heat pump is that it moves heat instead of generating heat, giving you more energy efficiency. Also, it is powered by electricity, so you can save substantially on fuel consumption.
Solar Hot Water System Products
Solar water heaters work by absorbing energy from the sun’s rays in the roof mounted solar collectors and transferring this to heat water stored in the tank, Ground mounted direct systems rely on an inbuilt circulator to push the water through the system, whereas roof mounted systems rely on a natural thermosiphon effect.
Water passes through the solar collector and into the tank. The tank gradually gets hotter until water reaches its maximum stored temperature. Indirect systems use a special heating fluid rather than water to absorb heat from the collectors. The heat is transferred to the water in the tank via a heat exchanger.
