What is a continuous flow hot water system? Continuous flow hot water systems (also known as ‘tankless’, ‘instantaneous’ and ‘on-demand’ hot water systems) are small wall-mounted units that heat water as you use it, rather than heating it slowly and storing it as a hot water storage tank does.
Continuous flow hot water systems work by pushing cold water through copper piping, and applying heat directly to these pipes. When a hot tap is turned on, a flow sensor triggers and starts the heating. In a continuous flow gas system it triggers a burner and in an electric system it triggers a heating element. The water is heated to the necessary temperature and then fed straight to your tap. When the tap is turned off, the unit shuts off too.
As no water is stored, there is no heat loss from a tank or any need to keep a body of water at a consistent temperature. These units only operate when the hot tap is turned on, and provide continuous hot water for as long as the tap is open.
Gas Storage water heaters or gas tank systems use a gas burner positioned beneath the a storage tank which will heat the water. This style of hot water system has a pilot flame that will ignite the main burner when the temperature in the tank reduces below the set temperature of the thermostat. This pilot flame uses an estimated $50 – $100 of gas per year.The most common tank is made from mild steel, however stainless steel tanks are also available and will generally last longer.

An Electric Storage Water Heater (ESWH) consists of an insulated storage tank, usually cylindrical, where hot water is kept ready to be used. The water is stored at a pre-set temperature typically 60-80°C. The water is heated in the storage tank by one or more electric resistance elements.
Electric Storage tank systems store a certain amount of heated water that is used throughout the day. Their biggest advantage is making use of cheaper off-peak energy tariffs to fill your water tank.
The Solar hot water system generally comes in two types being the typical roof solar hot water system to a new ground located hot water system which is called a heat pump.
The roof mounted solar hot water system generally consists of two solar panels and a storage tank. The solar panels are used as collectors to heat the water which is circulated to the tank and stored. This type of hot water system generally has a electric booster for when the sun isn’t heating the water enough.
The solar heat pump is typically found at ground level and connected to a power circuit which is very similar to a refrigerator in reverse. The heat pump extracts heat from the air which passes through a evaporator and condenser heating the water. The remaining cold air will then be extracted by a fan.
