Want to know a bit more about different hot water services available?
A hot water service is a fixture designed to provide hot water that is primarily used for washing, cleaning and hygiene purposes. There are 4 types of hot water services, and HUTCHINS PLUMBING & GAS are fully licensed to install all of them.
Electric Hot Water System
Electric hot water units is the most common type of hot water service on the market, and is basically a larger version of the kettle in your kitchen. Water is stored in a tank and heated by a heating element which is controlled by a thermostat. They come in a variety of sizes ranging from 25 litres through to 400 litres. The size of the hot water service is dependant on how many people live in the house, how many bathrooms you have, and the location of the hot water service.
Solar Hot Water System
Solar hot water units are generally considered the most efficient hot water service, as long as they are installed correctly. As the name suggests, water is heated by the sun. These units come with a secondary heating source (generally electric) to ensure that, if there is a lack of sun, the water is still heated until the sun returns.
Gas Hot Water System
Gas hot water service is a popular way to heat water in the southern states due to a greater availability of natural/town gas. There are 2 types of gas hot water service:
1. A gas storage unit which stores water in a tank and is then heated by a gas burner
2. A gas instantaneous hot water service, which is becoming increasingly popular as this unit only heats water as you need it, therefore is quite efficient.
The other big advantage of this type of unit is they are very compact and look neater on the side of your house.
Heat Pump Hot Water System
A heat pump unit is the least common type of hot water service on the market but very efficient nonetheless. These units operate like a refrigerator in reverse - they have a storage tank and a compressor (which sounds like an air conditioner running) - and are larger than your average electric hot water service.
