Solar Hot Water Systems

Heat Your Water With Melbourne Sunshine Thanks to Solar Hot Water Systems

Selecting and installing a solar hot water system for your Melbourne home could be one of the greatest things you do this year. Instead of using fossil fuels and natural resources to create hot water, all you’ve got to do is harness the warmth of the sun every day. You can even choose to just preheat your water with a solar system if you prefer. Not only can this potentially cut your costs to create hot water by 50%, you can install a backup storage tank that is gas or electrically powered if you wish just to make sure your water doesn’t run cold.

Here’s how it works.

  • Water is stored safely until it is needed.  Insulated structures will hold the water until it is needed, allowing the solar energy to heat it effectively. A tempering valve is included because the water can get incredibly hot at the tap when it isn’t used often.
  • Collectors absorb the thermal energy. The sunlight thermal energy is collected by panels that are positioned at the peak sunlight reception areas of your home. This energy is then transferred into your solar hot water system. A family of 3-4 can usually have their needs met with just two collectors. Some collectors even work under overcast conditions.
  • A circulation system is then installed. Your new solar hot water system can have the water circulated through the thermal energy, heated through a tankless system powered by the sun, or use indirect methods that involve heat exchange in some way.


The benefit of choosing solar energy from brands like Aquamax, Dux, Rheem, or Therman is this: you can choose the perfect style of solar hot water for your home so that your needs can be met whether you live in the Eastern suburbs or in the heart of Melbourne itself.

How Big Should Your Solar Hot Water System Be?

Large households should always look at the advantages of a 300 litre hot water storage system. They provide an appropriate amount of hot water that can be replenished throughout the day so that every need can be effectively met. Not even tankless heaters can match the high demand needs for hot water that large families of 6+ members may need on a regular basis.

Most Melbourne homes will benefit from the installation of a 270 litre solar powered system. This meets the needs of 3-4 people easily, especially if the needs for hot water are distributed throughout the day. This type of system may struggle if multiple showers are needed at the same time laundry is being completed or dishes are being washed, but overall it tends to be the best value purchase.

Multiple sizes and multiple warranty lengths are available to meet the needs of your family right now. If it is time to upgrade your hot water system, then consider an investment into solar. Not only is it a healthy choice for the planet, but it is healthier for your long-term budget as well. 

What Are the Costs of Solar Hot Water Systems?

Solar hot water systems for the home are not inexpensive. Depending on the type of hot water system that is desired, the total cost of installation and equipment can be as high as $7,000. When you’re trying to recover from an enormously high electrical or gas bill that was caused by a faulty system in the first place, the sticker shock for a solar system can make it easy to disregard.

The actual cost of a solar system depends on the structure and design of your Melbourne home. If you’re interested in what this kind of hot water system could provide your home, then be sure to contact us today to schedule a no obligation assessment. It takes about 30 minutes for us to assess the property and to give you a quote.

Don’t be so quick to dismiss the advantages of solar. It may be a higher short-term cost, but there is a lot of long-term potential for this kind of system. Some solar hot water systems are rated to last for 30+ years. The costs of solar compared to the conventional gas or electrical from a long-term perspective are much lower. Sometimes the initial investment can also be offset by rebates and incentives to lessen the initial investment. 

A solar hot water system may not work for every home if sunlight access is restricted, but with the abundant levels of sunshine we receive every year it could be right for you. If you’ve been thinking about converting to solar for awhile, then today is the day to do it. Let us know what you’d like to see for your home and take advantage of all the benefits given by the Melbourne sunshine. 

Electric Storage Hot Water System

Electric Storage Hot Water Systems For Your Melbourne Home

When a hot water system needs to be replaced, it isn’t that uncommon for the same tank to be purchased to replace the malfunctioning one. Over the last few years, however, electric storage hot water systems have evolved to become more energy efficient than ever before. There are more choices now than you probably remember there being, especially if you haven’t upgraded your system for a few years.


If you’ve got an older 200 litre hot water system installed in your home, then you’ve probably got the timing down as to when you’re going to be running out of hot water. Today’s top brands of electrical systems, such as Aquamax, Dux, Rheem, and Therman can replace all 200 litres of hot water used for showers, dishes, or laundry in just 1 hour. This means you can potentially have a smaller hot water system that provides better results than your previous system. 

Here Are the Factors to Consider When Choosing a New System

If you’re thinking about a new electric storage hot water system, then here are some of the things that must be considered before deciding on what size of system you need.

  • How many people are in the home? Young children use much less hot water than older children or adults, but they’ll also grow up quickly. If you have four young children right now, a system that can support 6 full-time users will be needed within the next 10 years. Since warranties may extend to 12+ years, an investment now makes sense. Don’t plan based on what your household is like right now. Plan for what the future may hold. 
  • How many bathrooms are in the home? If you have three bathrooms in your home that could all potentially require hot water, then your new electrical system needs to be able to support this.
  • How big are your appliances and bathroom facilities? Large bathtubs can hold a remarkable amount of hot water. Washing machines and dishwashers can also use a surprising amount of hot water.

Manufacturers like Rheem, who have served Melbourne families for nearly 80 years, make electric hot water systems that are as small as 25L and as large as 400L so all of your needs can be met. Look for models that use mains pressure to make sure there is a steady stream of water at the point of service so there aren’t interruptions. In doing so, you’ll have the best possible hot water system for your home.

What Type of Electrical System Should You Use?

Some hot water systems that are electrical powered have internal timers that can be set so the water can be heated away from the peak usage hours of the day. Peak use electrical charges can be much higher than off-peak use, which means your home will be able to save more on the costs to heat water when it turns on at the specified times. Time of use and continuous use are also options based on your household needs.

Why choose continuous use? If electricity is always available to the hot water system, then a smaller tank can be installed in the home. This creates a smaller short-term investment, but spreads out long-term costs because of the 24/7 power access that is available. Time of use is generally a good compromise because it offers continuous power, but at variable rates, so your home can stay in control of your hot water costs. 

Is a Hybrid Electrical Hot Water System Right For You?

New technologies have allowed hot water system manufacturers to combine the traditional electrical heater with a heat pump. This pump extracts the heat from the surrounding Melbourne air and uses it to help create hot water. They use less energy than the traditional electrical models and though they cost a little more upfront, they are quickly recovered by the monthly savings that are experienced.

Not every home is suited for a hybrid system. The heat pumps are usually placed on top and need a specific amount of clearance and non-cooled space around the heater. A condensate pump is also necessary if there isn’t a drain that is close. 

Electric storage hot water systems are very common today and highly affordable. If you’ve received an unpleasant surprise with your electrical bill which indicates your current system is failing, then take a few moments to contact us today. We’ll be happy to discuss the benefits of today’s modern technology and help you find the perfect hot water system for your home. 

Continuous Flow Hot Water System

Experience the Benefits of Continuous Flow Hot Water Systems in Melbourne

Instead of running out of hot water with a traditional water heater, continuous flow hot water systems provide a home or business with a continuous delivery of hot water that is at a consistent temperature. There is no need to heat a tank with this system. Energy is only used when the hot water is engaged. At Veeken Plumbing, we represent some of the best brands of instantaneous hot water systems that are available right now.

In an instantaneous hot water system, the cold water is brought to a burner that is ignited when the hot water tap is turned on. The water then passes through a heat exchanger and then is delivered to the tap. The heating process happens instantly and provides a forever stream of hot water. With the brand names that we represent at Veeken Plumbing, the accuracy of water temperature can be just one degree off from its set point.

There’s also the added advantage in the fact that there is no need to store a large quantity of water in a home or business with a continuous flow system and there is much less energy loss being experienced.

What Size of Instantaneous Hot Water System Is Right For Me?

There is a wide variety of applications and capacities to consider with the modern continuous water flow system. Most are able to be mounted internally and don’t require a flue. Veeken Plumbing can help your Melbourne home or business find a system that can meet your capacity needs so that you’ll never run short of hot water again.

What about water quality issues? It is true that continuous flow systems are not as efficient at heating water when there is a poor quality to the water supply. Some systems may struggle to reach peak hour demands within a home or business as well if the size has not been properly considered. At Veeken Plumbing, we can help to make sure these potential disadvantages are negated with a free, no obligation conversation about how this hot water delivery system could change your life.

You Can Even Keep Your Existing Hot Water Heater

A new continuous system could decrease the time it takes to heat a tank, boost capacities, or increase flow rates once installed.

The Right Capacity Storage Hot Water Makes All the Difference

aquamax-gas-hot-water-unitsMost storage tank systems for hot water are sold based on the amount of water that they can hold. For the average household of 2-4 individuals, a 300 litre gas storage hot water systems provides enough hot water on demand for about 3 showers, a load of laundry, washing the dishes, and for washing the hands with warm water about a dozen times. Households of 5-6 should consider stepping up to a tank that holds at least 400 litres at a time.

Capacity isn’t the only measurement to consider during the shopping process. Water is funneled into the tank after hot water is used, which means there is always a supply that is being heated. This means the first-hour rating of the tank will measure how much additional water can be replaced in an hour after the reserves have been used.

Buy a Gas Storage Hot Water System

Why Gas Over Electric Storage Tanks?

 It is true that electrical hot water storage tanks are less expensive to purchase in most circumstances. The only problem is that electrical heat is not as efficient for a storage tank as gas heat happens to be. Over the average lifespan of any hot water system, gas systems are going to have 50% of the ongoing service costs of their electrical counterparts. It may only take 12 months for the price difference of the storage tank to be recovered because of how efficient gas heating is for a water storage tank.

To break this down into real numbers, the average home in Melbourne spends about 20% of their energy costs on heating water. Upgrading to a brand new gas storage hot water system can cut that percentage down to 10%. That means a $300 current cost for electrical heat due to the water storage system potentially becomes $150. What could you do with an extra $1,500+ every year?

Have You Heard of a Condensing Gas Storage Tanks?

One of the exciting new innovations in field of hot water storage systems are condensing gas water tanks. These are extremely energy efficient systems that work well for Melbourne households that need hot water support for at least 2 individuals on a daily basis. The system captures the heat that would normally escape through the tank’s flue so that it can be recycled into the heating process. This prevents water from turning into vapor and can further reduce monthly costs.

Do You Need an Anti-Scale System?

 The top brands today also create hot water systems that are not as affected by the minerals that can sometimes be found in Melbourne’s water supply. This white, flaky substance is called “scale” and it builds up a few particles at a time in some homes. You’ll see it around the drains of your sink, on faucet heads, and sometimes as water spots on your dishware. Hot water systems with anti-scale require less cleaning because the water is swirled at the bottom of the tank.

You can then create security with your investment by looking for a storage tank that offers a long-term warranty. Most warranties from the top brands like Aquamax, Dux, Rheem, and Thermann will usually be in the 3-12 year range. The cost of a hot water system with an extended warranty is usually a little more, but you also typically receive better protection for your overall investment.

As a final step, think about investing into brass drain valves if you can, a glass-lined tank to prevent internal corrosion, and make sure your new storage tank fits into the space properly before purchasing so you’re not stuck with an unpleasant installation surprise.

Your Melbourne home deserves to have the hot water you need when you need to have it. A proper gas storage hot water system will do just that. Contact Veeken Plumbing today with any question you may have about your hot water system so that you won’t be left out in the cold.
