UPGRADING FROM GAS STORAGE TO CONTINUOUS FLOW GAS?
If you are looking to be like many Australian households who have upgraded from their old gas storage hot water system to the more efficient and compact gas continuous flow systems (also known as instant gas) then we are the specialists in this field.
Below we have detailed advantages, installation considerations and associated costs to better help our clients understand the upgrade process.
Lower running costs
The key element of continuous flow systems is the end user only heats the hot water they use. Most continuous flow systems we install are 6+ star energy efficiency rating, meaning in comparison to your 4 or 5 star gas storage system. The continuous units can save you hundreds annually on your gas bill.
Continuous flow systems are mounted to the wall of the home or business. On average the have dimensions of 58cm height, 36cm width and 20cm deep. They save a huge amount of space around your property.
Other than the Bosh mechanical range (10P, 13P, 16P, 10H, 13H, and 16H) Continuous flow systems are electric spark ignition meaning no annoying and inefficient pilot to light or maintain
Lower maintenance costs
The simplicity of the continuous systems is another one of their advantages. They do not require expansion valves and in some cases tempering valves (with pre-set 50 degrees Celsius units) meaning lower ongoing maintenance costs.
Variety of models and sizes
With numerous brands and system sizes we can offer the suitable type (natural gas or LPG) brand or size for your application. We can even couple the systems onto some existing solar units.
At Dynamic Plumbing and Gas we offer a free no obligation onsite quotation for all hot water upgrades.
We will attend your home or business and explain the installation process, in doing so also check off requirements for the potential new continuous system. These considerations include
- gas pressure and pipe sizing
- water pressure and pipe sizing
- gas compliance (for example unit location)
- electrical requirements (for example, determine if a new weatherproof EPC for system ignition id required)
Overall the supply and install costs vary depending on installation requirements and the system being fitted. Prices range from $1550 to $2200.
Or friendly team is only happy to explain required works and associated costs either as an estimation over the phone of a free onsite quotation.
