Gas Hot Water Systems

We’re qualified gas installers and have extensive experience in new gas hot water installations and replacements. If you’re new to gas hot water heating, we can guide you through the process of obtaining a gas service provider during our quote and discuss whether a gas heating system would suit you over an electric or solar model. We also perform gas hot water pump installations for pools.

In addition to gas hot water systems, we’re gas heating experts and are one of the few gas installers in the local area experienced with under-floor heating. Visit our Gas Installations & Heating page to learn more about our gas heating capabilities.

Gas is a popular choice, due to its versatility and relatively low energy cost. Hot water systems may either be a tank system (where the gas is used to heat a tank of water), or provide hot water on demand (a tankless system). In the latter scenario, water is heated as it is drawn off. Per litre, a tank system is cheaper, but for more modest users of hot water, a tankless system can work out cheaper. Gas systems need regular maintenance and should be installed by professionals, due to the potential dangers which gas presents. In opting for a gas system, homeowners need to consider the cost of servicing and maintenance alongside initial installation costs in order to get a better idea of total cost. It’s worth noting that properties in many rural areas don’t have access to piped gas, so solar or electric may be a better solution in these circumstances.

Solar hot water systems

Powered by sunlight, a solar hot water system is a popular option for households that want to adopt planet-friendly, green technology. A renewable source of energy, a major benefit of solar power is that it doesn’t require the use of fossil fuels in its manufacture. In addition, solar power can be economical to generate and use, as the energy source is free. Once installed solar panels are very low maintenance, and the whole system can often run for years before any inspection of maintenance is required.

When considering whether to opt for solar hot water, it’s important to be aware that the up-front costs of installing a solar hot water system can be quite high in comparison with gas or electric options. In addition, a solar hot water system will only heat hot water: you may need to also install an electric or gas system to power household appliances and/or central heating.

Electric hot water systems

Electric is a clean energy source at the point of delivery, ensuring emissions in or near your property are negligible when you opt for an electric hot water system. Electricity has an excellent safety record as a power source, making it ideal for homes where safety and reliability are priorities. Contemporary electric systems are extremely energy efficient and are designed to heat only as much water as you need. Electric hot water is a great choice in multi-occupancy buildings, or where it’s impractical to mount solar panels. Electric systems tend to be costlier to run than gas or solar alternatives and can be unreliable if your property is prone to power outages for any reasons.

If you’re not sure which type of hot water system is going to be best for your specific requirements, get in touch and we will be happy to provide tailored recommendations based on your individual circumstances.

Maintenance

It’s important for the long-term health of your hot water system to keep it serviced and checked semi-frequently. If you’ve started to notice small leaks, noises, or it’s just taking longer than usual for your hot water to come on, we recommend having our team take a quick look at it. Usually, hot water system faults are simple and cheap to fix when diagnosed early. While we’re there, we can take a look at any other plumbing faults (leaky taps etc.) you have for the ultimate peace of mind.
