What is the Best
Hot Water Heater
For Your Home

Which Hot Water System is
the Best for Your Home?

Choosing a new hot water heater is a big decision. It certainly isn’t a cheap investment, and it will affect your monthly bills for years to come.

Luckily, the experts at Curl Curl Plumbing know the ins and outs of every hot water heater.

They can even help you take advantage of government rebates that can save you thousands by switching to an energy-efficient hot water heater.

But eco-friendly water heaters aren’t for everyone. The answer to finding the best hot water heater for your home lies in the location, size, and age of your home as well as the size of your family.

To understand which hot water heater is the best for your home, we need to take a closer look at the models that give us all our wonderful hot showers.

The Best Hot Water Heaters for Your Home

Hot water heaters come in all shapes and sizes, but we can boil them down to four basic models. Each has its own benefits and drawbacks that you need to know to make an informed purchase.

Let’s take a look at the various hot water systems that are available:


Ideal for:

  • Big families
  • Houses exposed to the sun
  • New homes

The Sydney Northern Beaches suburbs are known for their sunny days all year round, making this a great location to take advantage of all that solar power. Solar hot water systems use solar panels to harness sunlight and use it to heat water. This is an environmentally friendly way to forget about your hot water woes. Solar powered hot water heaters cut energy costs dramatically, but they are more expensive to buy.


Ideal for:

  • Big families
  • Small homes
  • Old houses

Nearly as energy efficient as solar, a gas hot water heater uses natural gas to heat your water. It can be located outdoors or indoors for convenience and is much cheaper than an electric heater when it comes to paying the bills. Gas heaters are more expensive to install, but they heat water faster and can function without electricity.

Heat Pump

Ideal for:

  • Big families
  • Large homes

If you don’t have the right roof for solar panels, a heat pump is the next best thing. It is almost as environmentally friendly but doesn’t require the light of the sun. This hi-tech device extracts heat from the air and uses it to heat your water. It’s a complicated process, but it is incredibly efficient.

Heat pump water heaters are expensive to install but provide big annual savings. They also need to be located indoors and take up a considerable amount of space.


Ideal for:

  • Small families

Electric hot water heaters are the least efficient and most costly (in terms of bills). On the other hand, they are the cheapest to purchase and to repair.

In an electric water heater, electricity passes through rods or coils within a tank to heat the water. These water heaters only heat a tank of water at a time, meaning that you can run out of hot water if you use too much.

At Curl Curl Plumbing, there is no hot water heater that we haven’t encountered. We take care of repairs the same day you call, and if you need a new hot water heater, we’ll remove your old one for FREE.
