Storage Tank or Instant? We’ll Help You Decide
You’ve heard of instant water heaters but are not sure if one is right for your home. Instant hot water systems, also known as on-demand or tankless hot water systems, deliver hot water directly to your taps without first storing it in a tank. Tankless hot water systems are powered with electricity, gas or solar. They are generally more efficient than traditional hot water systems.
With storage tank water systems, there will be a large insulated tank, located inside the home, that stores up to fifty gallons of water. These types of water systems can be found in about 50% of Australian homes. But if the idea of having a fifty-gallon container full of water in your home makes you nervous, you will probably enjoy an instant system.
How Instant Hot Water Systems Work
Instant hot water systems heat water immediately when a hot water tap is turned on. There is no storage tank involved. When the hot water tap is on, cold water will flow through a pipeline into the hot water system. The water is heated in the unit and is delivered throughout the home as a constant supply of hot water.
Instant hot water systems are more energy efficient than storage water systems. However, the initial cost of an instant water system is higher than that of a conventional storage water system. Most instant water heaters have a life expectancy of more than twenty years.

Pros & Cons of Instant Hot Water Systems
Instant hot water systems are not for everyone, but they’re a great option for many. Their energy savings over time counteract the high upfront price tag. The ability to provide hot water on demand makes them a convenient option.
On the other hand, these units can be output challenged. So, for example, you may not be able to fill the tub with hot water if you are using the washing machine at the same time. If you have a large family, you may require a larger instant hot water system or two or more systems.
- Continuous flow of hot water
- Energy savings
- Compact size
- Longer lifespan
- Unable to supply hot water to multiple sources simultaneously
- Higher upfront price tag than conventional systems
