Electricity, Gas or Solar? Pick one!

Which one are you choosing? Most people don’t know more than the basics about choosing the correct system for their home. So if you are looking at replacing or upgrading your system soon, take a quick look at our Hot Water System Guide to help make a more educated decision.

Electrical Hot Water System


AvailabilityAvailable Everywhere.

Pros

  • Most widely available
  • Able to run ALL household appliances

Cons

  • Can be a more expensive source of energy
  • Have more moving parts that require regular maintenance

Points to Consider

  • Electrical Hot Water Systems are being phased out due to inefficiency

Gas Hot Water System


Availability Available in most major cities, but there may be limited piped gas in rural and regional areas.

Pros

  • Less expensive energy
  • Fewer Greenhouse gas emissions

Cons

  • Mains gas is not as widely available as electricity

Points to Consider

  • Gas Systems use natural gas (aka “mains gas”) or bottled LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) if natural gas is not available.

Solar Hot Water System


Availability Widely Available. However the benefits are dependent on a number of environmental factors.

Pros

  • Renewable energy source
  • No Greenhouse gas emissions

Cons

  • Significant upfront investment
  • Cannot be installed at all premises

Points to Consider

  • Environmental Factors such as the direction of the roof, the amount of sun on the property, temperatures, roof space etc.
  • Solar can only provide 50-90% of your hot water needs, gas or electric boosters are used when more energy is needed.
