Did you know that an average Queensland household can use around 25%-35% of their total energy on heating water? Maintaining your current hot water system, or installing a new efficient system, is a great way to reduce your power bills and impact on the environment.
The low down on hot water systems
It can quickly become overwhelming with the number of hot water system options available. Rest assured there are only two types of systems – storage heaters that use a tank, and instantaneous systems that only heat water when needed. 80% of Queensland housefuls currently use an electric hot water system, but they can also be heated by solar energy, natural gas and LPG.
Hot water and the environment
Around 50% of Australian households currently use conventional electric hot water systems in their homes. Amazingly these water heaters produce at least 3 times the greenhouse gases of low-emission alternatives, are generally less efficient and more expensive to run. Energy efficient systems can also provide long-term savings on your electricity bill.
