There are a wide range of different types of hot water systems you can get, and all have their pros and cons:
Electric Hot Water Systems – These are the most common household hot water systems. Stored in an insulated tank, the water is heated with an element in the bottom of the unit. They are the cheapest to buy and install, however they are generally more expensive to run.
Gas hot water systems – There are two types of Gas hot water systems: An Instantaneous (or Continuous) Gas System and a Gas Storage System. The Instantaneous Gas System is the most common gas hot water system in Australia, given their price and efficiency. A Gas Storage System is becoming less and less common given its inefficiency in colder climates and its high running costs.
Heat Pump Hot Water Systems – Heat Pump Hot Water Systems are becoming increasingly more popular around Australia, given they use as little as 30% of a conventional electric hot water system. While their as some downsides to a Heat Pump System, such as the cost of the unit and the installation, the cost to run far outweighs the upfront cost.
Solar Hot Water System – Like all solar installations, a Solar Hot Water System is quite expensive to purchase and install and in areas with less mid-year sun and long cold nights, it may need a bit of a boost from a gas or electricity source.
