What Are Storage Hot Water Heaters?
Simply put, a storage hot water heater is a tank that holds and pre-heats water, ready for use whenever you want it. Also known as a main pressure storage system, the storage tank water heater comes in gas or electric models. Solar and heat pump options are also available.
The stored water comes from the mains supply, which pumps cold water into the tank. It gets heated in the tank, either by a gas burner and flue or a heating element depending on which type of model you have. This enables the highest possible flow rate with no drop in water pressure when you have multiple taps turned on at the same time.
With a mains pressure storage hot water heater, you will never have any problems with fluctuating pressures when showering – something other types of hot water systems can’t always claim.
Mains pressure hot water tanks typically have a pressure relief valve installed. This ensures that the water flow level does not reach an unsafe level, providing a safety measure for your household. For installation and servicing of high performance, energy efficient storage hot water systems, trust Mr Emergency to get the job done.

Types of Storage Hot Water Systems
There are four main types of storage hot water systems most commonly found in Australian homes. Gas and electric have for a long time been the most regular conventional water heater options, but more people have been turning towards heat pump and solar-powered systems.
Gas Powered Heaters
Located underneath the tank of a gas powered storage heater is a burner. This burner heats the water when the constantly burning pilot flame ignites it. When the burner is alight, the heat energy transfers from the burner to the tank via the cylinder. The majority of gas powered storage water heaters feature a thermostat that can be modified to regulate the water temperature. This style of hot water heater comes in sizes ranging from 90 litres to 300 litres, so you’re sure to find the one that best suits your home.
Electric Powered Heaters
Electric storage water heaters generally comprise of a cylindrical tank which is insulated and stores water at between 60 and 80 degrees celsius. Electric elements – usually one but sometimes more – are used to heat the water, in a similar way to a kettle. The difference, though, is that an electric storage water heater will keep the water hot.
Solar Powered Storage Water Heaters
As the name suggests, a solar powered storage water heater harnesses the sun’s energy (via panels installed on the roof of your home) to heat water collected in the storage tank. They come in two different styles – thermosiphon and split systems. Solar powered water heaters can be boosted by gas or electric power; particularly useful in the cooler months when the sun’s energy is not at its highest.
Heat Pump Hot Water Systems
Heat pump storage water heaters offer next-level efficiency, and can produce as much as three times more heat energy than conventional water heater options. They use a blend of electricity and warm air which is then transformed into heat energy. Like solar powered systems, they do rely on the heat of the sun for optimal efficiency, but can still work in the cooler months of the year.
