Gas hot water systems use a gas burner to heat up water to the required temperature. There are two types of gas hot water systems: storage tank and continuous flow. Storage tank systems consist of a steel cylinder with a gas burner at the bottom. They heat up the water in advance so that you have a certain amount of hot water ready to use.
Continuous flow systems are tankless, and they heat the water as it flows through a heat exchanger, providing a continuous supply of hot water.
Gas hot water systems can run off either the gas mains or an LPG gas tank. They are generally fairly energy efficient, and even more efficient than solar systems that are boosted by non-renewable electricity. Whilst they are usually more expensive to purchase and install than electric systems, the running costs are generally lower.
If you have decided to install a gas hot water system, it is always best to hire a plumber to carry out the work. Attempting to install it yourself could lead to causing irreparable damage, as well as voiding your warranty.
Should you experience any issues with your gas hot water system, such as the system itself leaking, low hot water pressure, or no hot water, you should call a plumber to take a look at it.
