Upgrade to Instant Hot Water & Say Goodbye to Your Old Tank System

Is it time to replace your aging hot water tank? Consider upgrading to an Instantaneous Hot Water System.

Instantaneous Hot Water Systems, or Continuous Flow as they are also known as, are a fully electronic gas hot water systems which heat water on demand. 

Lets take a look at the benefits this modern alternative offers which makes it an excellent choice for any home.

Unlimited Hot Water – never run out of hot water again!

One of the most significant advantages of an instantaneous hot water system is its ability to provide unlimited hot water.

Unlike traditional tank systems that store a finite amount of hot water, instant systems heat water on demand.

This means you’ll never have to worry about running out of hot water, even during long showers or when multiple taps are in use simultaneously.

Say goodbye to the frustration of cold showers in the middle of winter!

Energy Efficiency – only heat water when it’s needed

Traditional tank hot water systems work by continuously heating and reheating a large volume of water, even when it’s not being used.

This leads to significant energy wastage as the system cycles on and off throughout the day and night.

Instantaneous hot water systems, on the other hand, only use gas when a hot water tap is turned on. This on-demand heating mechanism makes them more energy-efficient, helping you save on your utility bills while reducing your carbon footprint.

Some brands such as Rinnai, who are the pioneers in Instantaneous gas hot water systems, manufacture 6 and 7 Star energy rated system, making them even more energy efficient.

Compact and Space-Saving Design

Another compelling reason to switch to an instant hot water system is its compact and space-saving design.

Traditional tanks are bulky and take up considerable floor space, often in inconvenient locations like your patio or side of the house.

Instantaneous hot water units are much smaller and can be mounted on the wall, freeing up valuable space in your home. This sleek design not only looks modern but also opens up new possibilities for utilizing the space more effectively.

Precision Temperature Control with Wall Controllers

Instantaneous hot water systems allow you to set a precise temperature settings for your hot water.

For example, you can set the controller to 43 degrees Celsius and enjoy perfectly heated water every time you turn on the hot tap, without the need to mix it with cold water. This is not possible with tank systems as water needs to be stored at a higher temperature to prevent bacteria growth, but as Instantaneous systems do not store water, so you can achieve the perfect shower temperature every time!

Can I upgrade my tank system?

If you currently have a gas tank system, upgrading to an instantaneous system is usually straight forward.

However, in some cases, you may need to upgrade your existing gas supply pipe.

As they require a small amount of electricity for the ignition and temperature control, if you don’t already have a weatherproof outdoor power point near your existing hot water system, one will need to be installed.

Don’t wait until your current system fails

If your current tank system is aging, don’t wait for it to fail before considering an upgrade. As there are a few considerations such as checking your current gas supply and installing an outdoor powerpoint if required, it is better to plan ahead while you still have hot water rather than waiting until your old system fails.

Old systems can be inefficient, leading to higher energy bills. Instantaneous hot water systems, though initially more expensive than traditional tanks, can save you hundreds of dollars in reduced running costs.
