Electric Hot Water Heaters

What is an electric hot water system?

An electric hot water system is a hot water system that uses electricity to heat the hot water for your home or office.

Electric hot water systems have an electric element that is sparked when a hot water tap is turned on. This electricity warms the water within the system – whether it be a storage system or instantaneous/continuous. In addition to standard electric hot water systems, some solar hot water systems have an electric booster element to increase the reliability of consistent hot water.

Why choose an electric hot water system?

Some homes or offices do not have gas connections. In this case, it may be more practical to select an electric hot water system to suit your needs – or contact your local council to have a gas meter installed, and then contact Shoreline Plumbing to install a gas connection and gas hot water system for you. The upfront costs of purchasing an electric hot water system tend to be less expensive than other systems, but an electric hot water heater can be the most expensive to operate in the long run, especially with the continual rising of our energy bills.
