Gas Water Heating
Gas Water Heating
Gas water heating is the best way to heat your water for several reasons. You will always have hot water, plus it starts coming out of the taps fast. It is also cheaper than electricity, which is incredibly important given that heating water accounts for such a large part of our energy bills.
Osborne Plumbing and Gas is you gas water heating specialists. We have been installing gas water heating in Auckland homes for decades, helping our customers realise the benefits of gas. All our gas fitters are registered and experienced, plus we offer the best possible levels of customer service. Both continuous flow units and hot water cylinders are available.
Continuous Flow Units
With a continuous flow unit you only heat the water that you use. This makes them one of the most economical options available as you are not wasting money heating up water that is kept in storage, but then never actually used. We supply a range of different units from leading manufacturers.
Hot Water Cylinders
Hot water cylinders also come in a range of different makes and model, including those that are highly economical. They remain a popular option for many households, not least because many of the models that are available do not need electricity to run. This means that even when the power is out, you will still have hot water.

Heat pump water heaters use energy from the outdoor air or ground to heat water, which is stored in an insulated hot water tank. The actual efficiency that you get from a heat pump water heater depends on the make of the system, the quality of the installation, the average temperatures where you live and the location of the compressor unit.
There are two different types of heat pump water heaters:-
- Split systems
- All-in-one units
Split systems have the compressor unit outside and the hot water tank generally inside although the tank can also be located outside the house separate from the compressor. In some cases you can use your existing hot water tank.
All-in-one units have the compressor and tank together and the whole system usually sits outside.
