Why  choose an electric hot water system?

Some homes or offices do not have gas connections. For this reason, it is usually more economical to select an electric hot water system to suit your requirements . Adelaide homes can still install a conventional electric hot water system up to 250 litres providing there is no gas connected to the property .The upfront costs of purchasing an electric hot water system tend to be less expensive when compared with other systems, which is why some people purchase electric hot water systems

If you requirements fall outside of this scope your alternatives are Gas or Solar hot water –

For Gas hot water call us on 8444 7320  to have a gas installed to your property , For a alternative heating source which may be cheaper to run than electric hot water system ( see running cost comparisons) .

What is an electric hot water system?

An electric hot water system is a hot water system that utilizes electricity to heat the domestic hot water for your  house or workplace. Electric hot water systems have an electric powered element that is triggered whenever the temperature drops below the pre-set temperature of the thermostat. This electricity heats up the water within the system. In addition to standard electric hot water systems, some solar powered hot water systems have an electrical booster element to increase the reliability of these consistent hot water systems.
