What is an electric hot water system and how does it work?

Electric hot water heaters use electricity to heat hot water for your home, office or business. When a sink or shower tap is turned on, an electric element is sparked within the system and the electricity warms the water in either a storage tank or an instantaneous hot water system. Most houses in Victoria use storage systems for their hot water. Unfortunately, all storage systems allow some heat to escape through the walls of the tank, meaning they consume energy regardless of usage. This is why it is important to invest in efficient, highly rated electric hot water heaters with well insulated storage tanks. Smaller households especially stand to benefit financially by having the proper hot water heater.

Why choose electric hot water heaters?

Some homes and establishments do not have gas connections. If that’s the case, it makes more sense to go with electric. If you still prefer gas, you can call your local council to have a gas meter installed, and Blue Streak can install a gas connection for you. The initial cost of purchasing electric hot water heaters tends to be less expensive than other options.
