Access to drinkable water is a necessity. But instant access to hot water is a miracle of modern life. As critical as a hot shower and a steaming cuppa are to us all, countless commercial and industrial sites also demand access to boiling water.

A storage hot water system draws cool water from your mains and stores it in a tank. When you require hot water, you must activate the system, which will heat the stored water.
Storage hot water systems can be quite energy efficient, as they aren’t required to keep water hot at all times. Their downside, however, is that they cannot offer instant access to hot water and instead need time to warm up.
Continuous hot water systems use high-energy heating elements to rapidly heat cool mains water as it flows through it.
The primary benefit of a continuous-flow hot water water unit is that it gives you instant access to hot water. However, it may not be as energy efficient as a storage hot water system.
That depends on your particular needs. There are several pros and cons to electric and gas hot water systems.
One benefit of electric systems is that they’re cheaper to install and can be powered by solar panels on your property. On the downside, they can be energy inefficient.
Gas systems can be more affordable for smaller households as gas prices don’t fluctuate by peak and off-peak demand. However, there are environmental effects to consider.
Feel free to leave the research to us — it’s our job to match the best hot water system to your needs.
