Smart Electric

Over the last few years we have noticed an increase in demand for electric water heating products.  Many customers think they need to go down the heat pump path, however there is an alternative and it’s a smarter alternative called Smart Electric storage hot water.  

Smart Electric hot water is a modern approach to an already existing/reliable and proven method of heating water in Australia.  It is conventional or resistive element based storage hot water which has been around for generations however with a modem app based control system.  It lets you have the convenient control capability to set the operational time the system heats water.  Perfect for customers that have a substantial photovoltaic system (PV) system on their roof that have excess power going back to the grid for little financial payback.

We have been installing conventional systems for years however we have had to add additional timers to the installation so the system heats during daylight hours, now with these smart electric systems, it all comes as standard and no clunky time switches to worry about therefore installation costs are reduced.

Features and Benefits of Thermann Smart Electric System:

  • Standard size 250 and 315L tanks..Ideal replacement for existing electric tanks.

How Smart Electric Systems work

A Smart Electric hot water system is a different style of a conventional electric storage hot water system. It still uses an element to heat your water and provides a reliable, efficient and sustainable way to reduce your water heating energy consumption.

It uses an App based control system to let you control the heating periods, so is perfect for larger PV systems and it will still operate in cold weather where the ambient air temperatures are low.

Storage Cylinder Materials

Smart electric systems use a storage tank constructed out of steel and have a lining often called vitreous enamel.  At the end of life they can be recycled easily as there are no nasty refrigerants inside the system. 10 year warranties apply to the storage cylinder.

Choosing a Smart Electric System

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 Smart Electric Systems  that are Australian manufactured.

Australian manufactured brands also provide local product service, training and spare parts are readily available.

How electric storage works

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.

Materials

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 electric storage

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.
