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.
A popular choice in electric storage heaters, the Rheem 491/492 range is guaranteed to provide years of reliable service.
Rheem Stellar combines high thermal efficiency with the purity and performance of a stainless steel cylinder
The hardworking range of FLOWMASTER Electric Hot Water storage systems are available in various capacities.
The Australian made Thermann Electric Storage Hot Water systems heat water in an insulated tan by an electric element, like a giant kettle.
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
The Rheem Stellar range offers fast 200L per hour recovery and the unique SuperFlue design increases longevity.
The Rinnai Infinity Continuous Flow Systems are high performance units designed for significant users of hot water.
The Thermann 4 star gas hot water system is suited to families of 3-5 people. With an adjustable thermostat for safety and efficiency.
The Thermann 6 Star, energy efficient Gas Continuous Flow unit ensures you will have enough hot water, when you need it.
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.
The Quantum Solar Heat Pump works on a patented refrigeration principle similar to that found in an air conditioner, or refrigerator... but in reverse!
The 310L Rheem Heat Pump utilises environmental heating technology to efficiently heat water using the air's warmth.
The Rheem MPi - 325 features whisper technology for supreme quiet operation and offers the convenience of a 2 piece design.
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.
Do your bit for the planet and save energy at the same time! Go solar with the Rheem Loline solar hot water heater. It's designed for warmer climates and areas with good water quality.
Rheem Premier Hiline uses natural thermosiphon principles to efficiently transfer the energy from the collectors into the stainless steel storage tank.
Rinnai Sunmaster flat plate solar systems consist of a ground mounted storage tank that is installed separately to the collectors mounted on the roof.
Thermann Evacuated Tube Solar systems offer the best of both worlds. While the tubes harness the sun's energy to heat your water.
