Types of Gas Water Heaters

The most common & preferred type of gas water heater is the tankless heating system, also known as continuous flow. Because they are tankless, they only heat the water as it is required. A flow switch detects when the tap is turned on and will heat the water as it passes through the unit.

The other type includes a storage tank, which have a five-star efficiency. Most will require that you are connected to the natural gas line, however there are options that can be plumbed to LPG bottled gas (should there be no natural gas in your area).

Gas Hot Water Storage System – Advantages and Disadvantages


  • Ideal for bigger households
  • Rapid heating with a high recovery rate
  • Lower operating costs


  • Initial costs are high

Gas Hot Water Tankless System – Advantages and Disadvantages


  • Ideal for apartments and villas, better for small households
  • Tankless water heaters take up very little space
  • Can be safely installed indoors or outdoors
  • Longer life span


  • Limited Hot Water Supply, if you are running multiple appliances at the same time

Gas Hot Water Heater FAQ’s

Shane Howison - Owner of Curl Curl Plumbing

As a plumbing expert from Sydney, I’ve heard just about every question in the book. Lucky for you, I’ve got some answers! So sit back, grab a cuppa, and let’s tackle some of the most common gas hot water heater FAQ’s out there.

Click the links below to find out more.

Q: How does a gas hot water heater work?

Gas hot water heaters use a gas burner to heat up the water in the tank. The gas burner is controlled by a thermostat that keeps the water at the desired temperature.

Q: What are some common problems with gas hot water heaters?

Some common problems with gas hot water heaters include pilot light issues, gas valve problems, and thermocouple malfunctions.

Q: What do I do if the pilot light won’t stay lit?

If the pilot light won’t stay lit, you may have a problem with the thermocouple. Try cleaning the area around the pilot light and thermocouple. If that doesn’t work, you may need to replace the thermocouple.

Q: What should I do if I smell gas near my hot water heater?

If you smell gas near your hot water heater, turn off the gas valve immediately and contact a licensed plumber. Do not attempt to light the pilot light or use any electrical switches or appliances.

Q: How often should I have my gas hot water heater serviced?

It’s a good idea to have your gas hot water heater serviced once a year by a licensed plumber. This will help prevent any problems and keep your hot water heater running efficiently.

Q: How do I know if my gas hot water heater needs to be replaced?

If your hot water heater is over 10 years old, isn’t providing enough hot water, or is showing signs of rust or corrosion, it may be time to replace it. Contact a licensed plumber to assess your hot water heater and determine if it needs to be replaced.

Q: Can I install a gas hot water heater myself?

It’s not recommended to install a gas hot water heater yourself. Gas hot water heaters require a licensed plumber to install them safely and in compliance with local building codes.

There you have it, folks – some of the most common gas hot water heater FAQ’s answered. Remember, when in doubt, don’t hesitate to call in a licensed plumber. It’s always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your plumbing system! Have other plumbing questions? Then checkout our dedicated FAQ’s page here: FAQs
