Choosing a hot water system
In this post we’re recommending an Ultimate hot water system and a Best Value hot water System. The Ultimate hot water system is the best hot water money can buy with the least environmental impact. When choosing the ultimate system price is no object.
The best value hot water system is the best hot water you can get for the least amount of money.
Note that we are recommending a type of system – not a particular brand make or model.
When choosing a hot water system we compared the most common hot water systems on the market today:
The main things to consider when choosing a hot water system are:
The Ultimate Hot Water System – Solar with Gas Boost
This is the best hot water system money can buy. It is the most expensive to buy and install but has the lowest ongoing running costs. It is the most environmentally friendly option and even though it has a storage tank you will never run out of hot water due to the gas boost.
The Best Value Hot Water System – Gas Instant
Cheap to buy and provides continuous hot water as long as you have gas. Gas is cheaper than electricity and burning it releases fewer greenhouse gases than using electricity generated by burning coal.
