7 Reasons to Get Rid of Your Old Hot Water System

Feb 3, 2016

Taking your time in the shower used to be a guilty pleasure. Guilty, because we had to worry about using all the hot water someone else might need. Instantaneous gas hot water systems solve that problem by only heating water when and if you need it, instantly. Here are the other reasons why you can in fact feel really great about installing one.

1. Your hot water supply is as endless as your gas and water.

No matter how big the old residential hot water heater systems were, they had a limit to how much they could hold until they ran out. Once empty, it took time to reheat nearly 200L of water. If you ran out of hot water while you still had soap on your face or while washing your hair – bad luck! You’ll have to finish with a cold shower. Instantaneous hot water systems have no tank, and can’t run out, even in the biggest of families.

2. Save Electricity

No more heating anywhere up to 200L of water, only to have it sit there all night and all day until needed, not to mention keeping it hot. With the tankless systems now being installed in modern houses, the burner only runs when hot water is needed. Many tankless systems will give you adjustable temperature control to suit each application. You can turn it up or down from inside your home, offering further savings if you don’t need it as hot as normal.

3. Environmentally Friendly

Another obvious benefit of less energy consumption is less carbon emissions. In fact, you can reduce hot water related greenhouse emissions by up to 65% when you make the switch to guilt free hot water.

4. Healthier, Cleaner, Fresher

Water that’s sitting around has more chance to cause rust and scale over time. With no tank, there’s no such problem. Your water is fresher, which is cleaner and healthier for all.

5. Save Storage Space

Because there’s no big water tank, the space an instantaneous hot water heater is minimal, and can be mounted neatly on any wall with adequate ventilation. That looks neater and tidier, a nice benefit for proud home owners.

6. Long Life Investment

Traditional hot water heaters may last a decade or slightly longer, perhaps even twelve years. However, the new tankless, instantaneous gas hot water systems can last up to twice as long!

7. Family Friendly

Not everyone in your family can handle super hot water, as is required to prevent bacteria growing in system which stores water in a tank. Young infants and the elderly can have much more control and cooler hot water without fear of contamination. That means less chance of accidental scalding, less chance of sickness.

The only question remaining should be how big an instantaneous gas hot water system you need, and where to put it.
