Electric Hot Water Systems

How it works

There are two types of electric hot water systems:

Storage – Water is heated with an element and stored inside a tank ready for use

Continuous – Water is heated only when required, so a tank isn’t needed

Benefits of an electric hot water system

  • They are the cheapest to buy of all the systems
  • Some electric systems can be programmed to do most of the heating during off-peak times, which can help to minimise energy bills

Drawbacks of an electric hot water system

  • They are the most expensive system to run long-term, due to their low energy efficiency
  • Some electric options require larger storage units than other systems
  • They have higher greenhouse emissions
