Immersion Element Electric Hot water Heaters
The most common type of electric hot water system heats water via an immersion element which draws power and transmits the heat into the hot water tank. These systems have a surface mounted thermostat which controls the temperature within the tank. This type of hot water system can heat the water via a direct circuit which will heat the water whenever required. The tariff is generally around .36c per KW.
The alternative to this is to heat the water on the off-peak tariff which is much cheaper at around .15c per KW. However, this is only available at night between 11pm and 6 a.m. This means that a larger tank is required to store the heated water and supply the needs of the household until the next heating cycle on the following night. This style of hot water system is available with a single element for general-purpose domestic needs and twin elements for higher domestic demands and commercial applications.
Electric hot water systems all have a 12-month parts and labour warranty, and the tanks can either have a 5 or 10 year warranty. Electric hot water systems are generally the most expensive way of heating water and other alternatives such as gas and solar have much cheaper running costs.
