Choosing the Right Hot Water Brisbane and Gold Coast
Gas Hot Water Systems
IntantaneousGas hot water systems in general provide instant hot water on demand whereas storage gas hot water systems heat the full tank when the temperature drops below a preset amount.
It is important to take into consideration the yearly metering costs of Natural Gas and the yearly rental fees for LPG as well as the correct size to suite the number of hot water outlets and the number of people in the home before purchasing a system.
It is always advisable to have an electric hot water systemconnected to either off peak tariff 31 or 33 otherwise your electricity bill could be very high as these systems heat up the whole tank when they drop below 60 degrees.
Tariff 31 is the cheapest tariff but your tank will only heat up during the night. If you use all the water during the day, you may run out until the next morning.
Tariff 33 will give you a guaranteed 18 hours, but usually not during peak hours.
When you have had enough of paying the electricity company for your hot water then you may want to consider solar hot water. Queensland is the sunshine capital of Australia and Brisbane has the perfect climate with it's long hot summers to more than make it worth the while to switch tosolar hot water.
