Choosing a hot water system can sometimes be challenging especially when you are buying one for the first time. Often buyers have never even thought about hot water systems prior to them failing (or when you are having a cold shower!) which can also lead to impulse purchasing behaviour, without the well rounded research.
Water heating accounts for around one quarter of the average households’ energy use. In some homes it can be more than that which is why it’s important to consider this when purchasing your next system.
There are a number of systems on the market that are energy efficient, which will save you money and are a lot friendlier to the environment.
There are different government regulations that aim to reduce energy consumption and therefore in a lot of homes electric storage hot water systems may not be allowed.
