Different Kinds of Hot Water Heaters
A storage heater is designed as a tank that heats the water as well as releases water based on demand. Several sizes of storage heater exist, ranging from 50 litres to 300 litres. Also, various types of storage heater are available. For instance, we have the gas-powered, electric-powered, solar-powered, and design with a combined source of power. All these designs exist in external and internal models.
Hot water system costs

Electric Hot Water System
This design provides a quick hot water supply. Always purchase and install a suitable hot water system for your need. In this way, you will only be heating the right amount of water needed for your use – this will help conserve your energy and reduce cost. However, if you live in an area where off-peak tariffs are lesser, then you may settle for larger models.
Gas Hot Water System
This design is cost-effective and efficient if you need a regular hot water supply. The water is heated by the gas within the system, which burns cleanly and consequently reduces the level of emission. Endeavour to choose a suitable gas hot water system size according to your usage demands.
Instant Water Heaters
With gas water heaters, water is heated based on your demand. Once the tap is turned on, as the water moves through the pipeline to get out of the tap, it will generate pressure on the gas water heater. During this period, the gas will begin to burn within the gas water heater, and eventually, you will get immediate hot water gushing out. Once the tap is turned off, the gas will be conserved as it will stop burning within the gas water heater. Unlike storage heaters, gas water heaters are quite small in size; hence, you can install them in small-sized apartments. Also, you can get them in external and internal models.
Solar Hot Water Heaters
With the sun’s energy, the solar water heater produces hot water. The system works by passing water via various panels which are usually placed on the roof, so as to get the required level of exposure to the sun. In terms of cost-effectiveness and energy-efficiency, a solar water heater is a great choice.
Renewable energy is used by heat pumps to produce hot water. Compared to the solar water heaters, heat pumps do not use solar panels. With the system, you will be able to save money spent on hot water bills significantly because they utilise one-third of the energy required to use an electric water heater.
