Is your current hot water tank due for replacement, or you are thinking of installing a completely new system? These heaters heat and store water in an insulated tank for use when it’s needed. Insulated hot water tanks are the most popular form of heating system throughout Australia. Most electric, gas, solar and heat pump hot water systems use a tank.
Many electric storage heaters are designed to work at off peak times when electricity tariffs are cheaper, which leads to lower running costs. However, as they only heat water at night, the water tanks need to be quite large to make sure you don’t run out of water during the day.
