Almost every residential and commercial property in Australia has a hot water system to delivers water to the occupants. As a property owner, you derive much value from your water heating system — maybe without ever really thinking about it.

Many property owners don’t ever think about whether their home’s hot water system is providing them with the best possible value. Older water heaters’ energy efficiency tends to decline over time, and their running costs tend to increase.

It is, therefore, worth your while to give some thought to your existing hot water system. You may be wasting money, or your water heater may not meet your household’s demand for hot water.

Continuous hot water systems are one of the best ways to upgrade your property’s water heating and delivery system. Keep reading to learn more about continuous hot water system and their wide range of benefits.

Continuous Flow Hot Water

A continuous flow hot water system is a small water heating system that you can mount against a wall. A continuous flow hot water system differs from a conventional system in that it heats the water as you use it, instead of storing and heating the water inside a storing tank.

In other words, the continuous flow water heating unit starts heating the water as you turn on the hot water tap, and it stops heating the water when you turn the tap off. This is a great way to cut costs.

An additional feature of continuous water heaters is that they work with both gas and electrical systems, so you will be able to find a unit that is suitable for your household. Because continuous hot water systems start heating cold water immediately after you turn on a hot water tap, they are often called instant hot water systems.

Do You Need a Continuous Flow System?

There are many different continuous flow water heating models, each with its own set of specifications and flow rate. The flow rate refers to the amount of hot water the system delivers in a minute.

The flow rate your household needs depends on how many bathrooms you have and not necessarily the number of people that live in your home.

Continuous flow systems have some difficulty supplying water top multiple taps at the same time, so if you have two or more bathrooms, you will need a continuous flow system with a high flow rate. For most households, a flow rate of 50 litres per minute is sufficient.

The initial costs relating to the purchase and installation of a continuous flow system is somewhat higher than other types of water heating systems. Since their running costs are low, however, the water heating system will allow you to save money in the long-run.

If you have an average household demand for hot water and if your existing storage tank water system is taking up too much of your property space and monthly income, you can’t go wrong by installing a continuous hot water system.
