Gas Hot Water Systems
There are 2 types of gas hot water systems: storage and continuous flow. Metropolitan Gas Fitting has the expertise and equipment to carry out any and all work on both types, no matter the make or model. Installation, scheduled servicing or repairs, here’s what you need to know about gas hot water systems:
Storage Hot Water Systems
A storage gas hot water system, as its name might suggest, uses a storage tank to keep a supply of readily available hot water. It works just like the familiar electrical hot water system but uses natural gas as its source of heat.
Natural gas is often regarded as a superior source of energy because it can be more efficient, better for the environment and cheaper to run. If your home already has a natural gas or LPG connection, then switching from electric to gas is a no brainer. Storage systems are available in a wide range of sizes with options suited to meet the hot water requirements of your family.
Instant Hot Water Systems
Instant Hot Water Systems (or Continuous Flow Hot Water Systems) only heat water as it’s being used. The water passes through the system and is heated before travelling directly to your taps and faucets. The great thing about Instant systems is that you will never run out of hot water, no matter how many showers are taken in close proximity.
There’s no storage tank. Instant hot water systems are compact, so they don’t take up much space. Plus, natural gas is typically cheaper than electricity prices. So you can have an unlimited supply of hot water with lower running costs.
