Types of Gas Water Heaters

Instantaneous Water Heaters


Instantaneous gas hot water systems, also known as continuous flow, don’t have storage tanks and heat water only when required.

The gas burner starts when a hot water tap is turned on. It only heats the amount of water that is required instead of continuously heating a full tank. As they don’t store any hot water, there is no heat loss from a tank and so can have energy and cost savings, In fact more have a 6 star energy rating.

They can typically deliver hot water at flow rates per minute of between 10 litres and 30 litres, depending on the model. 

Storage Gas Water Heaters


Storage gas hot water systems use a gas burner located underneath the storage tank to heat the water.

They usually have a continuously burning pilot flame that ignites the main burner when it is needed. Heat is then transferred from the gas burner through the bottom of the cylinder.

Storage hot water systems come in a range of tank sizes from about 90 litres to 300 litres. Some units use a special flue system to recirculate the hot flue gases around the outside of the tank to increase heat transfer into the water and increase their efficiency.
