Save Hot Water Costs with $500 rebate
Do you have access to mains gas? You could be saving on your hot water costs! PLUS get a $500 rebate for switching from electric to a gas system.
Most people who have access to mains gas tend to think first about using it for heating their homes and for gas cooking appliances, but have you considered the advantages of having a gas hot water system?
A hot water system using mains gas has the benefit of producing about ⅓ of the greenhouse emissions of electricity so it is better for the environment and it is generally less expensive to run compared to an electric system.
Gas is a great alternative if you are trying to be “greener” and save money, but don’t have the upfront costs and obvious need of a house that gets good sunlight that solar requires.
Depending on your hot water usage, LPG (bottled gas) is another alternative, but make sure you do the math and work out exactly how much this option will cost in the long run and consider that you will need to keep an eye on your tanks so you aren’t unexpectedly caught out without hot water if you run out of gas.
What kinds of gas hot water systems are available?
Storage water heaters. These systems heat and store water in an insulated tank for use when it is needed in the same way that electric storage systems do.
Instantaneous systems (or continuous flow systems). This type of system only heats up water when it's needed and doesn’t use a storage tank.
We’ve talked about these systems in detail in a previous article here as there are a lot of factors to consider when making your choice.
How do you get the most from your gas hot water system?
All hot water systems have an energy rating sticker to enable to you compare their efficiency. The less gas a system uses, the lower the operating costs will be, so be sure to do your research and compare all the features of a system, as well as it’s energy rating.
