Gas hot water Heaters
Gas Water Systems make up approximately 48 per cent of water heaters in Australia.Generally, you will typically see household with either an instantaneous or continuous flow gas water heaters which do not have storage tanks and heat water only when required or a Gas hot water Storage system which use natural gas or Liquefied Petroleum Gas to heat water.
Gas Storage Hot Water Systems
Storage gas Hot Water Systems use a gas burner located underneath the storage tank to heat the water. This can be seen by the continuously lit flame. When it is heated, heat is transferred from the gas burner through to the water. Storage gas Hot Water Systems come in a range of tank sizes depending on the family size, budget and energy consumption.
Instantaneous (Continuous Flow) Gas Hot Water Systems
Instantaneous Gas Hot water systems, also known as continuous flow, don’t have storage tanks and heat water only when required. This is achieved through the gas burner heating the water which flows through a heat exchanger. It works when the tap is turned on heating only the required amount of hot water.
