Service Information

Gas Storage

Gas storage water heaters come in fewer sizes than electric systems, however they offer a reasonably continuous delivery of hot water due to their fast recovery rate. Available for either natural gas or LPG, the water is heated via a burner that sits under the tank. As the hot water is used throughout the day, the burner will ignite to ensure it is replenishing the hot water supply. Due to the nature of gas, we recommend any repairs be carried out by qualified and experienced hot water technicians.

Gas Instantaneous

Gas instantaneous hot water systems have a wall mounted compact design, making them a great solution in limited space. They heat the water as required, delivering a constant flow of hot water so you will never run out. As an added bonus, they can also come factory pre-set to a certain temperature. As these are also gas systems, they will need to be repaired or installed by a qualified tradesman.

Benefits of Gas

Low install costs
Gas hot water storage systems are often a like-for-like replacement, minimising the amount of alterations required to existing pipework.
Fast installation
Both gas storage and instantaneous systems can be installed in a short amount of time, usually less than four hours for a standard install.
Instant recovery for storage
For a gas storage hot water system, hot water recovery starts as soon as any hot water is drawn from a fixture in the house.
Constant flow for instantaneous
Instantaneous systems will continually deliver hot water, as long as gas and power are available at the system.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I install a gas storage tank or instantaneous system?

Every house has different hot water requirements and both systems have their advantages. The biggest factor to consider is that an instantaneous heater will require a power source as well as a 20mm gas connection. We are able to inspect your property and provide advice on your options.

Which type of system is cheaper to run?

This can vary greatly depending on the amount of hot water used. To get a rough idea of the difference in running costs, Rheem Hot Water have a great resource on their website to compare systems:

Which type of hot water system will last longer?

Both gas storage tanks and instantaneous systems can be purchased with a 10 year warranty, so it would be fair to assume that both system types should have a similar life expectancy.

Do you remove our old tank?

In the majority of our installs, we will remove the old hot water heater as part of our standard service. The exception to this is if there is difficult site access that may require additional labour costs. The terms and costs will always be communicated to you in advance.

Are your quotes all inclusive?

Yes, with Enviromate Plumbing you can ensure there will be no hidden costs. Once we have inspected your hot water system, we will provide an accurate fixed quote. This will include any associated valves and ensure the system is installed to Australian Standards.

Enviromate plumbing came out and cleared my blocked drain, the service was very prompt and professional. They cleared my drain and then put the camera down to show me what the problem was and where. Every detail was explained to me and gave me a clear understanding of what may need to be done in the future. It was very refreshing to use a company with such professional understanding tradesmen.
We would like to thank you for your efforts to resolve our ongoing heat pump fan issue, each time we have dealt with Enviromate it has been a very positive experience. We have been lucky to have Bray attend our house and on the times he has been, he has been very prompt, friendly and helpful. A great asset to any business, thanks again.

All your team who worked on our plumbing over the past few weeks, were excellent in terms of providing professional advice, doing a very good job and providing the service in an effective and timely manner. I would like to especially thank Tristan, Ben and Steve who were also courteous, friendly and professional as well as carrying out their work efficiently and very effectively.
Just wanted you and the other staff members to know that I received a call from Exec Committee at 26 Devon and that they wanted to say thanks very much. Great service and they will recommend your firm to everyone.
