Mr Emergency understands the importance of finding the right electric storage hot water system for you. We're here for advice, installations and more.

Electric Storage Water Heaters – a Popular Choice

Electric storage systems are used in about 50% of Australian households. The unit runs on your home electrical mains and can be programmed to run “off-peak” to help you save on energy costs and to minimise unnecessary power usage, which benefits the environment.

The size of the electric storage unit depends on the size of your household. These units come in many sizes. A compact 25-litre system would suit a single person home, a 125-litre system would suit 1-3 people, while a 160-litre system would be the right choice for a 4-5 person household. For households of six or more, 250 litre and bigger systems are on the market.

Mr Emergency understands the importance of finding the right electric storage hot water system for your needs. We can be at your door within 30 minutes* at any time on any day of the year, including public holidays. So, call today if you’re in need of a hot water service.

The Benefits of Electric Storage Tank Hot Water

Electric storage tank hot water systems have gained popularity for several good reasons. Electric water heaters work by heating water and storing it in an insulated tank until you need it.

These hot water systems heat water using a heating element. Water is usually stored at about 60°C to prevent the growth of bacteria (such as Legionella).

Here are the key advantages of choosing an electric storage tank hot water system for your home:

  • Consistent hot water: One of the standout advantages of electric storage tanks is their ability to provide a steady supply of hot water. Once the tank is heated, you have a reservoir of hot water ready for use, ensuring you won’t run out during your morning shower or when doing the dishes.
  • Energy efficiency: Modern electric storage tanks are designed to be energy efficient, with improved insulation and heating elements. This means you can enjoy hot water using a reliable power source without a significant increase in your energy bills.
  • Affordability: Electric storage tanks are often more affordable upfront compared to some other hot water systems, making them an attractive, inexpensive option for homeowners looking to save money.
  • Ease of installation: Installing an electric storage unit is relatively straightforward, especially if you’re replacing an existing electric hot water system. This can save you time and installation costs.
  • Reliable and low maintenance: These systems are known for their reliability and low maintenance requirements. They use electricity and provide heated water consistently with minimal fuss.

These are just a few of the reasons that this type of system is the most common type used in Australian homes. When electric storage units have been installed and connected properly, homeowners can expect instantaneous hot water at all times.

While electric storage tank hot water systems are affordable and have their advantages, it’s essential to consider your specific needs and budget when choosing the best hot water system for your home. Evaluate factors like tank size, energy efficiency, and your household’s hot water consumption to make an informed decision.
