Hot water cylinders

Cold Hot water pipe

A vital part of kiwi homes

Lots of heating options

There are different types of hot water cylinders available in the market, each with different heating styles.

The three most popular heating styles in New Zealand are electric, gas, and heat pump units.

We will also talk about some of the top brands of hot water cylinders available in the local market, including Rheem, Dux Proflow, Superheat, Petercocks, and Rinnai.

Electric hot water cylinders

Electric hot water cylinders are the most common heating style in many Kiwi households. These cylinders use an electric heating element to heat the water inside the tank.

They are fairly easy to install and require minimal maintenance. However, they can be expensive to run, especially during peak hours when electricity prices are high.


Gas hot water cylinders

Gas hot water cylinders are another popular heating style. They use natural gas or propane to heat the water inside the tank. Gas cylinders are more energy-efficient than electric cylinders, making them more cost-effective in the long run. However, they require a gas supply and can be more complicated to install. We’ve Got You Covered

Heat Pump Units

Heat pump units are becoming increasingly popular due to their energy efficiency. They work by extracting heat from the air or ground and using it to heat the water inside the tank. 

They can be more expensive to install than electric or gas cylinders, but they can save you a significant amount of money on your energy bills in the long run.
