Electric Storage Hot Water System

An electric storage hot water system is a popular choice for many Australian homes. It works by heating water using an electric element and storing it in an insulated tank ready for use.

Size Matters

Electric storage systems come in a range of tank sizes based on your household’s hot water needs. For a small family or duplex, 125 to 160 litres is usually sufficient. Larger families will want to consider 250 litres or more. The bigger the tank, the more hot water is available before needing to reheat, but the higher the upfront cost and running expenses.

​Energy-Efficient Models

Look for a model with a high energy star rating, thick insulation, and timer or thermostat controls which can reduce power usage. Some systems have special ‘off-peak’ options to take advantage of lower nighttime electricity rates. Using a timer, the water is heated at night and stored for use the next day.

Installation Requirements

Electric storage systems need to be installed on a concrete base in an area that remains frost-free. They require a power supply, cold water inlet and hot water outlet connected to your plumbing system. For safety, a licenced plumber should carry out installation and connection to the power grid.

Electric Storage Hot Water System Benefits
  • Running costs - Although electric systems have higher operating costs than gas, they are very affordable to run for a typical household.

  • Reliability - Electric storage units are extremely reliable and low-maintenance. They can last 10-15 years with few issues.

  • Environmental impact - Although not as eco-friendly as solar hot water systems, electric storage units produce significantly lower emissions than older models. 

If you're looking for an affordable, low-fuss option for your hot water needs, an electric storage system could be the solution. When installed and used properly, it will provide your household with a steady supply of hot water for washing, cleaning and bathing.

Instant Electric Hot Water Systems

Instant electric hot water systems are a convenient option if you want near-instant hot water delivery. They work by heating water as it flows through the system, so there’s no need to wait for a storage tank to heat up.

Limited Storage

Since instant systems don’t have a storage tank, they can only heat a limited amount of water at a time. If multiple hot water taps are running at once, the available hot water may run out quickly. These systems typically suit 2-3 person households. For larger families, an electric storage hot water system is probably a better choice.

Instant Hot Water Cost 

Instant hot water systems run at a similar price point that an electric storage hot water system, or are slightly cheaper at best. The benefit of Instant hot water systems is they’re considered more energy efficient in the long run because it only heats the water you need and takes up less space. You’ll need to weigh up the initial investment versus potential energy bill savings.
