Different types of hot water systems
Gas Storage Hot Water System
Storage hot water heaters (also known as storage tanks, hot water tank, hot water cylinder) is a tank that is used for storing and heating hot water. The tanks are typically heavily insulated to minimise heat loss and energy consumption and can retain heat for days. Hot Water tanks may have built in gas burners, electric immersion elements, may use an external heat exchanger to heat water from another energy source prior to storing it in the tank or may even be coupled with a solar system.
Instantaneous Hot Water System
Instantaneous or otherwise known as continuous flow hot water heaters work on the process of heating cold incoming water with a large gas flame, to the desired or pre-set temperature. The units are generally a lot smaller than conventional storage hot water heaters as they do not store any hot water. The basic configuration of a continuous flow hot water heater is a copper pipe coil wrapped around a large gas flame. This is known as a heat exchanger.
A heat pump hot water heater is a new renewable energy efficient way of heating hot water. Typically hot water heaters use an energy source such as gas or electricity to heat stored water, however heat pumps use the heat from the outside air to heat the stored water inside the storage tank. They look very similar to standard conventional electric storage units, however have the heat pump that sits at the top of the tank.
