1. How do electric storage systems work?

Electric storage systems work by storing hot water in the tank so it is immediately ready for use. Continuous flow systems work by heating the water on demand as opposed to storing it.

2. Are instantaneous water heaters energy efficient and sustainable?

Due to the proximity to the draw-off point, the pipe runs are shorter which ensures that there is a reduction in heat loss, and hot water is quickly available when it is drawn off next. This allows for only the required amount of water being used to be heated. This therefore saves energy, water and costs.

3. What are the benefits of an electric hot water system?

  • Lower upfront costs
  • Can be installed internally or externally
  • Comes in a variety of sizes
