What is a Tank-less or Instantaneous Gas Water Heater?
Meant as a turnkey replacement for your existing electric or solar offering, our range of tank-less water heaters only heats water when you need it
This means you have an endless supply of hot water available whenever you need it. It also means you save money on energy costs by not reheating the reservoir water in the storage tank when you are not using it.
Available in a range of sizes and price entry points, we are able to service everyone from Jo needing a small specialized heating solution for her home scullery to Susan looking for a complete green solution for the ablution facilities of the new gym she is architecting.
What are the real advantages
Instantaneously heating water means an endless hot water supply. No more nervous times spent wondering if it’ s your imagination or is the water getting cooler ‘cos it’s the last water of the hot water. No more dodgy “coffee every morning for a week” deals on a Sunday morning to be the first to shower
Because of their diminutive size these units are easily concealed in small spaces or better still installed outside where access to oxygen for combustion is not a problem. Units installed outside should always by sheltered inside a weather proof box.
No risk of a trashed ceiling and house full of water from a burst geyser in the ceiling, instantaneous means no storage tank lurking in the roof waiting for the first opportunity to destroy that new Persian rug
No storage of water means no lurgies floating around for years in the bottom of the tank. Because hot water rises, the outlet fitting on a tank storage water geyser is mounted at the top of the tank, anything that sinks in water that washes into your geyser is there for good. Dinkum. Just think about it.
We have seen many units in the field with lifespans well in excess of 20 years, I kid you not, instantaneous gas water geysers were the standard for many rural settings when electricity was not available in darker days past. Talk about longevity
Instantaneous!!! as in the water is heated only when you turn the tap on! It puts you in control of exactly how much energy you consume, shorter shower means a lower energy bill. Period.
Green sustainable energy. Not only is burning gas substantially less impactful on the environment than electricity produced by coal, these units are also considerably more efficient than the electrical storage solutions (by as much as six or seven fold in many cases).
No change in lifestyle required. Because you are not dependent on when the sun shines or when the wind blows you can choose when you shower and for how long without compromising on your hot water expectations
You can be in control of your own destiny. Gas is the ideal energy solution for the South African consumer. It is an easily transported, easily stored and easily exchanged cheap energy source which can meaningfully reduce your dependency on Big Brother for your heating and cooking requirements. Keep a spare bottle handy you will never experience rolling-blackout style energy turmoil again.
Which one should I get?
Depends. The largest of the traditional models will happily service the demands of a single domestic bathroom, when more than one bathroom is involved questions like how far apart they are and how many taps will be opened at the same time become pertinent. Best contact one our trained consultants for further advice.
In a commercial setting it almost always makes sense to consider one of the fan assisted models where both efficacy and efficiency are dramatically improved. If the geyser is likely to be operational (as in heating water) for more than a couple of hours a day, the up-front costs are quickly recapitalized in reduced operating costs on account of the higher operating efficiency.
