Gas hot water systems heat water by either burning natural gas or liquid petroleum gas (LPG). Natural gas hot water systems are usually connected to a central gas network. There are many advantages to natural gas hot water units, including:

– Lower initial and installation costs than solar or heat pump hot water systems
– High energy efficiency
– Low running costs
– Water heating during overcast and cold days as well as during blackouts
– Use for off-grid applications

Storage Water Heaters and Instantaneous Systems

There are two types of gas hot water units, namely storage water units and instant gas hot water systems.

Storage Heaters

Storage heaters have an insulated storage tank that contains a gas burner. The unit heats and stores water in the tank until it flows out for use. Every time the tank loses heat, a pilot light will ignite the gas burner to heat the water to the set temperature.

Since the tank tends to lose heat and the water needs constant reheating, storage gas water heaters are not the most energy efficient of the two types.

Instantaneous Heaters

Instantaneous flow systems are tankless. As the cold water flows through the system, its system’s heat exchanger heats it to a temperate that is fit for use. When you open the hot water tap, the water pressure triggers the heat exchanger to start heating the water.

Unlike a storage system that heats the same water over and over again, the continuous flow system heats the water once on demand, making it the more energy efficient option. A continuous flow system also delivers unlimited hot water, since it doesn’t have a tank with a limited amount of hot water.

Is a Gas Water Heater for You?

The advantage that gas hot water systems have over electric ones is that they are more energy efficient and they generate fewer greenhouse gas emissions. Gas hot water systems may be the perfect choice for you if you:

– Are connected to a central gas network
– Can install a hot water system outdoors or indoors
– Need hot water during all weather conditions
– Are living off the grid
– Want to improve your home’s energy efficiency
– Want to save money over the long-run

A gas water heater is generally incredibly reliable, and they typically have a long lifespan. With proper installation and maintenance, you will derive the maximum value from your gas water heater.
