    Questions like:

    » What size hot water system should I get?

    » Which system is cheapest to run?

    » Should I buy a continuous flow or storage hot water system?

    » Which hot water systems come with a guarantee?

    Gas Hot Water Systems

    Continuous Flow

    Continuous Flow hot water systems are a great choice if you have gas on your property or are planning to have gas installed. The continuous systems are energy efficient, only heating the water you need. They are available in a variety of sizes to suit your water needs meaning you will never run out of hot water. Even if you have teenagers!

    O’Connells offer a variety of major brands. All of these units come with a 10-yearwarranty.

    Gas Storage

    Like the name implies, gas storage hot water systems are gas units that store and heat water. These systems have great efficiency and heat water fast. With a low gas consumption and fast recovery, gas storage systems are a great solution. Unlike continuous hot water systems, gas storage systems store water so you’ll have hot water even if the power goes out.

    Available in a variety of sizes from 90 litres.

    Electric Hot Water Systems

    Electric Storage

    Electric storage hot water systems are the most economical to supply and install.

    The flip side to these systems is that they can be more expensive to run with the thermostat heating water even when it’s not in use. Put simply, when the temperature drops the element turns on to maintain temperature.

    The good news is there are ways to reduce electricity costs with these units and O’Connells can help.

    Heat Pump Hot Water

    Heat pump hot water services are another storage hot water heater. They are highly efficient using only 30% of the energy of a standard electric hot water service.

    These hot water systems work like a reverse cycle air conditioning system, using the refrigeration cycle to extract heat from the air to heat the water. 

    Solar Hot Water Systems

    Solar hot water systems work by first installing solar panels to your roof. Water runs through the panels, heating up the water. Solar systems are available in both split system and close coupled systems.

    A split system is where the tank is installed away from the panels, usually on the side of your house, and a pump circulates the water through the roof panels and back into the tanks.

    With a closed system, the tank is attached to the roof panels with the water flowing without assistance through the panels into the tank.

    What if there is no sun?Great question!

    Solar hot water installations include a gas, electric or electric-solar booster. These kick in when the system sensor wire detects the tank is not getting enough heat.
