Space heating and hot water heating are the main users of energy in the many homes. So efficient hot water systems have the potential to deliver substantial savings on energy bills.
Hot water systems can be broken down into two main categories:
- Instantaneous is powered by gas or electric.
- Storage systems can be powered by gas, electric, heat pump, solar or a combination of these. A combination can be seen in Solar hot water systems with a LPG or electric boost for long periods of cold and cloudy weather.
The best system for any individual or family is determined by their usage. Solar, a high star rated system with Natural Gas, or a heat pump, when used correctly have the lowest energy consumption and can help create the most comfortable home.
