What Types Of Gas Hot Water Systems Are Available?

At S&J Plumbing and Gasfitting, we work with a variety of hot water systems including both major types of gas water heaters. Both instantaneous and gas-heated water tanks are commonly used gas hot water systems here in Brisbane, and our team has the expertise to install, repair, and maintain both of these systems.

Gas-Heated Water Tanks

While less common today in Brisbane, gas-heated water tanks were the go-to gas hot water systems for many years. They work by heating water using a gas-fired burner located at the bottom of the tank. The hot water then rises and is drawn off the top to reach your tap, shower, washing machine, or other appliances.

 Instantaneous Water Tanks

Instantaneous water tanks heat water on-demand, and do not use a storage tank. In general, they are more popular today as they are seen as more efficient.
