FAQs About Domestic Hot Water Systems
What is the cheapest hot water heater to run?
Continuous flow hot water systems, also known as instantaneous or tankless hot water systems, are small units that heat water on demand. Unlike hot water tanks, which store and heat water in advance, continuous flow systems provide a never-ending supply of hot water. This makes them ideal for households with high demand. Generally, continuous flow water systems are available in both electric system and gas system models, making them a versatile option for most homes in Brisbane. If you're considering a continuous flow system for your home, be sure to speak with a licenced professional to determine the best continuous hot water system for your needs.
How long do water systems last?
The average lifespan of a typical hot water heater is around 8-12 years. However, this number will vary based on the type of system you have installed in your home as well as the quality of maintenance it receives. If you want to ensure that your water heater lasts for as long as possible, it is important to have it regularly serviced by a qualified technician and to have it repaired as soon as faults are noticed.
