Often overlooked, effective water heating is one of the most important elements of managing your power bill
Cut costs with energy effcient hot water
Water heating accounts for about 30% of a typical household’s energy use, so it’s a great investment to have an energy-efficient hot water system to help bring your energy bills down in cost.

- wet backs.
- instant electric
- solar hot water heaters
- heat pump hot water heaters

Other hot water systems are also available. We can even custom build a water heating system to suit your home’s requirements.
Things to consider when choosing hot water heater for your home:
Size: The correct sizing of your hot water heater is essential (whether energy efficient or otherwise). A household usually uses 200 litres of water per person per day, of which about 38% is hot water.
Energy source: Which fuel or energy source is the most cost effective in your area and will match your requirements.
Energy efficiency: There are a variety of energy efficient hot water systems available on the market. It is important to ensure that you consider which system is most appropriate for your home and your lifestyle.
Capital cost: The operational savings from an energy efficient hot water system have to be considered in relation to the capital cost of a system.
The four main kinds of energy-efficient water:
Solar water heating: Harnessing the clean, renewable energy of the sun with state of the art solar technology. In the long run it’s good for the environment and your wallet.
Hot water heat pumps: Hot water heat pumps work like a refrigerator in reverse, drawing warmth from the air to heat your water. They are efficient even in low sunlight areas, so you can achieve moderate energy savings year-round.
Instant gas water heater: If solar or hot water heat pump systems are not practical for you, or you require back up we can recommend an energy-efficient gas water heating system (instant or boiler) that can be integrated in to your system to give endless hot water.
Wetback: Installing a wetback is a useful way to harness the extra heat generated by a woodburner to provide you with hot water.NB; some areas have clean air requirements means a wet back may not be practical.
