Looking to replace or upgrade your hot water system? Building a property and looking for the best hot water system for Perth conditions? There are 5 main types of hot water units installed in WA – solar hot water, continuous flow, gas storage, electric storage and heat pump.
What Air and Water Does
Air and Water are experts in the supply and installation of all types of Rinnai Solar and Infinity hot water systems as well as EvoHeat heat pumps. (Note: We don’t stock electric systems as Government regulations are phasing them out due to environmental concerns. However, we can recommend cost effective alternatives to your old electric system).
Air and Water make choosing the right system simple. Each type of hot water system has different strengths, and each home is different so you have to match the right type of solution to meet your needs. For example, if you have tall trees or neighbouring homes casting a shadow over your roof, then you may need to consider gas or heat pump hot water instead of solar. And if you have a large family, you may need to look at continuous flow or larger storage tanks.
