Advantages of electric hot water systems
Electric hot water systems heat and store water so that it’s ready for you when you need it. This type of hot water system has the added advantage that you receive full pressure to showers, baths and basins. This can be an important consideration for some – to have hot water when you need it. Electric hot water heaters are generally the cheapest option and hassle-free to run.
Disadvantages of electric hot water systems
While electric hot water system prices are typically cheaper to buy, they are more costly to run. Yet they do avoid using expensive peak hour electricity by only heating overnight. Electric hot water heaters tend to be larger than needed to avoid running out of water. As they are larger and water is heated everyday this can lead to excess energy consumption.
This means they are considered a poor choice if you are thinking about reducing your environmental impact. But don’t let this dissuade you, as the systems are getting more efficient all the time and in some circumstances are your best or only option.

Advantages of Instant Hot Water Systems

Continuous flow hot water systems do not need a storage tank, so you will save money on both buying costs and energy loses.
Disadvantages of Instant Hot Water Systems
An important factor to consider on instant hot water systems is that they deliver water at a slightly reduced pressure. Generally standard units delivery adequate hot water to only one tap at a time. When a second tap is on, the pressure and temperature of the water will drop. In most cases, you will need the system to be large enough so that several outlets can be used simultaneously if required.

How Do Solar Hot Water Heaters Work
Most solar hot water systems use solar collectors or panels to absorb energy from the sun. Water is heated by the sun as it passes through the collectors, and then flows into an insulated storage tank for later use. In passive systems, water flows unassisted between the collectors and the tank. In active systems, water is pumped between the collectors and the tank.
Advantages of Solar Hot Water System
With electricity and gas prices rising, solar hot water systems are becoming increasingly popular. When you consider the advantages it is not hard to hard to see why:
- reduced power bills
- produces less greenhouse gas (than other styles)
- solar hot water systems are eligible rebates in the form of Small-scale Technology Certificates (STC’s)
- solar utilizes a free, renewable energy resource
- lowers our country’s dependence on fossil fuels
- can increase the value or saleability of your home
- environmentally friendly
- low maintenance costs
- choice of gas or electric boosters
In a typical household, water heating accounts for about 30 percent of total household energy use. Depending on the climate and the model of heater, a solar water heater can provide between 50 to 90 percent of your total hot water requirements.
Disadvantages of a Solar Hot Water System
As solar hot water is rarely completely adequate for a household’s hot water needs, the storage tank is usually fitted with a booster. This can be powered by electricity, gas or solid fuel. Helping heat water when sunlight is insufficient, such as cloudy or wet days, or during winter when there are fewer daylight hours. Some solar water heaters also have frost protection to prevent damage in frost prone areas.
It is important to note that the upfront cost of a solar hot water system, including installation, is higher than electric or gas water heaters. For most households, energy bill savings will compensate for this initial cost difference over time.
