Types of electric hot water systems
There are many different types of electric hot water systems. The most common are hot water storage tanks, continuous flow systems and hot water heat pumps.
Storage hot water system keep a tank of water at a constant temperature, providing fast access to hot water. Tanks vary in size, depending on the needs of your property. Hot water naturally rises to the top of the tank, so water is drawn from there when needed, and is replaced by new cold water. The temperature change is detected by a sensor and will switch on the burner to heat the water back up to a set temperature.
On the other hand, continuous flowor instantaneous hot water systems heat the water as and when required. When you turn on the hot water tap, an electric element is sparked, which heats the water within the system. The element immediately switches off when you turn off the hot water tap. Water is diverted through a heat exchanger and then delivered to the faucet. Since water is slowed during the heating process, multiple open taps will result in decreased water temperature and pressure. Continuous systems heat up an unlimited amount of water when you need it. It does take a little while to warm up, but it doesn’t use as much energy maintaining a constant temperature. Continuous flow systems are cheaper to run, more energy and water efficient and more reliable than storage systems.
A heat pump uses renewable energy byabsorbing heat from the surrounding air to heat your water. It does this by fanning in warm outside air and using a heat exchange system to heat a water storage tank. Heat pump hot water systems are great if you live in an area with year-round warn temperatures. Heat pumps operate on electricity however, they are more efficient, environmentally friendly and can save money on electricity bills and maintenance costs.
