Many conventional electric hot water storage systems are simple and reliable utilising proven technology whilst newer heat pumps offer a choice of providing a more cost effective way of heating your water especially if you generate your own electricity.
With the choice of conventional storage electric element or storage heat pump electric hot water, you have a greater choice now in determining how you want to heat your water and reduce your electrical running costs
You may also generate your own power, purchase power at a cheaper rate or you may decide to even eliminate your gas account. We can assist with what direction you want to proceed with, so contact us and we will be happy to provide a quote.
Most systems are generally straightforward to install. We do however ask that you think about the location they will be installed as they do require installation access due to their size and some systems require adequate ventilation. Various storage capacities are available.
The AMBIHEAT HDc-270 Heat Pump is the new generation 270L capacity heat pump which is a smart, energy efficient alternative for areas where a traditional solar water heater may not be suitable. It uses the heat from the surrounding air and doesn’t rely on direct sunlight to heat your water and provides a reliable, efficient and sustainable way to reduce your water heating energy consumption.

Designed and manufactured in Australia, the Rinnai Enviroflo V2 features a single element boost. This allows the product to be used in high demand applications or even cold ambient conditions.Built locally to outlast the tough Australian conditions, these tanks have been designed and tested to operate with water pressures up to 1000 kPa.
Enviroflo Heat PumpEnergy EfficientQuiet Operations1000 kPa maximum water pressure rating250L and 315L capacities availableAustralian designed and built with a high level of product quality.
Energy Efficient.Easier to install due to modular design.Top down heating of cylinder means quicker hot water recovery.Environmentally friendly CO2 refrigerant used.One of the quietest systems on market with average noise level of 37dB.Smart controller allows control over energy costs and consumption.
A heat pump hot water system is a different style of electric storage hot water system. It uses the heat from the surrounding air and doesn’t rely on direct sunlight to heat your water and provides a reliable, efficient and sustainable way to reduce your water heating energy consumption.
It uses refrigeration technology and works similar to a normal split system air conditioner, however instead of heating the air, it heats the water.
Some systems also have back up conventional elements to assist in water heating in the event of cold weather where the ambient air temperatures are low.
Many heat pumps have controls that can be set by the customer or installer so that the heating periods are set to suit household power generation or day/off peak metering.
Heat pumps use a storage tank, these are mainly constructed out of steel and have a lining such as vitreous enamel. Some tanks can also be manufactured out of stainless steel.
We can help you understand your water heating requirements and choose the ideal system to meet your needs, catering for budget, energy efficiency and environment (how much space you have).
We generally like to use heat pumps that have a high Australian manufactured content as we like to support Australian manufacturers.
They also provide local product service, parts, training and rebates are kept in Australia.

Electric storage systems have a cylinder that holds a certain water volume.
As the hot water is drawn away from the hot water system, cold water replaces it and the thermostat switches on , powering one or two elements until the set temperature is reached.
The process repeats throughout the day or when the tank temperature drops or cools off. Electric hot water systems are extremely reliable and simple, using time proven technology and components.
Electric storage tanks are made out of two common types of materials, steel which has a certain lining or stainless steel.
Sometimes steel tanks are referred to as glass lined or vitreous enamel lined.
Choosing an electric storage hot water system can sometimes sound complicated. There are various cylinder capacities, element varieties/combinations and it depends how you want to power the system. We recommend you contact us and we will assist you with the process.
