Electric Hot Water

Electric hot water units are the most common form of hot water unit found around Brisbane. They are typically connected to main powers, and use a resistance element to heat the water.  Electric hot water units come in a range of sizes from 25 to 400L, they can be connected to standard and off peak tariffs, and also utilise power from rooftop solar PV (photovoltaic) panels .  Electric hot water units are most often the most economical solution, and when paired with the correct energy source, can provide cheap and efficient hot water heating.

Heat Pump Hot Water

Heat pump water units work like a refrigerator in reverse, absorbing heat from the air and vaporising the refrigerant which is then compressed.  The hot water runs through a network of pipes, and is then stored for your use.

The latest model heat pumps can save you up to 80% of your heating costs, and can be a great option depending on your needs.
