How to choose the best hot water cylinder for NZ climates

Roughly two thirds of all the hot water cylinder NZ systems are sold to replace an aging or broken unit. When your existing unit breaks down you are left without modern conveniences like hot showers and baths, so it’s only natural that you would want to find an adequate and affordable replacement as quickly as possible.

This is why we have made it our mission to provide hot water cylinders at NZ prices that won’t break the bank. Whether you are going with a gas hot water cylinder or a more traditional electric system, you can rest assured that we have you covered.

However, it’s prudent to give some thought as to which hot water cylinder in NZ is suitable for your needs. Making the right choice can mean big savings on your energy bills as well as lowering the carbon footprint of your home by a considerable amount

So, which type of unit is most appropriate for your home? There is no one-size-fits-all solution, and this is why we have such a diverse range of options for you to select from.

In the majority of cases, there will be more than one option that is suitable for your home.

Things to consider

The best approach for choosing the correct hot water cylinder NZ system is to identify what your needs are so that you can narrow down your choices. The following are a few questions you should be asking when deciding on which unit will work best for you.

What kind of fuel do you have access to?

An important question for many homes is whether or they have access to gas. If you aren’t using a solar supported system, using natural gas can easily be the cheapest and most efficient system for you to use.

Traditional electric systems are reliable and commonplace, but they also leave more of a carbon footprint. In order to offset this, many people using electricity will use a heat pump that uses air from outside the unit to heat the water inside, rather than directly using electricity.

We sell and install heat pumps for our customers all around New Zealand.

How many litres are needed?

The amount of people living in your home and their lifestyle habits will determine the capacity and demand that you need to meet. As a general rule, smaller homes of 1 to 3 people are best served with gas hot water cylinders or heat pump systems.

Larger homes with access to gas are better served by a storage tank system.

How far will the unit be from your taps?

The design of your home is very important when deciding on hot water cylinders in NZ, not only because heat is lost as it travels via pipes but because if the taps are too far away from the source you’ll waste more water while waiting for it to warm up.

If the outlet is too far from the unit then you may need to consider some other enhancements or create a separate continuous flow system on the opposite side of your home.

What amount of space do you have?

These kinds of systems will need to take up a significant portion of space in or around your home. For example, large tank systems require a flue that will exhaust outdoors as well as drainage for any excess and a good amount of clearance on every side.

What’s your budget?

Depending on your budget you may go with a gas hot water cylinder or go with hot water cylinders at NZ prices. You might consider investing in one of our heat pump systems which are more energy efficient than traditional electric heating and will pay for themselves over time.
