21% of household energy consumption in Australia comes from the hot water system.

When considering hot water systems for your home, you want to consider what is the most energy efficient for your family to save you money and lower your greenhouse gas emissions.

Different hot water systems are suited to different household needs. The hot water system and usage for a small unit occupied by one single person is likely to be dramatically different than a four-bedroom family home.

Hot water system options:

There are several hot water options, and whilst all will provide you with hot water, some are more suitable than others to smaller or larger households.  

  • Gas hot water system
  • Electric tank system
  • Solar hot water
  • Heat Pumps

Which system is suitable for your family?

Generally, regardless of the family size, a solar hot water system will always be the most energy efficient and result in the cheapest bills.

However, if solar isn’t an option for you, the following is a guide to hot water systems most suited to family sizes:

  • 1-2 person household: gas or electric hot water.
  • 2-4-person household: gas or a heat pump.
  • 5+ person household: gas storage units and large heat pumps.

This is just a guide to base your decision; each home and family has different levels of water consumption.

A professional hot water system supplier will be able to recommend the most appropriate and cost effective system for your household. 

Your supplier should ask you the following questions to determine the best hot water system for your family:

  • How many people live in the house
  • Whether being energy efficient is a priority
  • When you use hot water e.g. showering/washing/dishwasher
  • What time of day do you use hot water the most

Maroochydore Plumbing are experienced in all plumbing systems and will be able to recommend the best and most efficient system to suit your family. They can manage all aspects of installation, maintenance and repair ensuring your hot water system is always the most efficient for your household.

    I have been using Chett for over 6 years as a Property Manager. Chett, Mary and the team have never let me down. They are professional, very well priced and will go above and beyond to help out. Out of the plumbers I have had dealings with, Maroochydore Plumbing is definitely my favourite - reliable, honest and very efficient... Would highly recommend.

    I have been using Chett (Maroochydore Plumbing) in my role as Property Manager for approx 4 years and won't use anyone else. He has always gone above and beyond for me, even on weekends. He knows the relationship between a Property Manager, Tenant and Owner and ensures that all are happy (he has even cancelled an invoice for me when I had a very unrealistic owner).
    Cannot recommend Chett and his team highly enough!!
