Hot Water System

Choosing the right hot water system

If you’re considering a new hot water system for your Adelaide home or office, you might have realised that there is a huge range of hot water heaters currently on the market.

So how do you choose the right hot water system that will adequately supply you with hot water, as well as potentially keeping your energy bills down?

When choosing a hot water system for your home you need to take the following into consideration:

  • The fuel sources available to you
  • The size of your home
  • The position and extra space requirements of your home
  • How many bathrooms in your home
  • How you use hot water
  • How many people will be using hot water on a daily basis

Once you have considered the above options you can then look into which type of system would then suit your home, lifestyle, and budget:

Other points that you should consider when choosing a hot water system:


Is your climate and water quality suited to the hot water system?


Is the hot water system efficient? Is it backed by a high star energy rating? A hot water system that uses less energy to run will save you money on your future energy bills as well as reduce your carbon footprint.

Warranty Terms

Does the hot water system come with a long-term warranty? A quality hot water heater that has been built tough will come with high warranty terms.


Do you have space in your home for the type of hot water system that you are considering? Is the hot water system to be installed internally or externally? Is your home suitable to install a solar powered hot water system or heat pump hot water system?

Government Incentives

Are there any Government incentives available to help reduce the price of the hot water system you’re considering?


Choosing a hot water heater based solely on price is never a good option. The system may be too small for your home, meaning your water supply will probably remain cold, or the unit may be too big which would result in higher than necessary energy bills.
