We have many potential clients asking about electric continuous flow hot water systems .
People living in apartments and townhouses are especially attracted to the small size of the units and also the nature of the continuous flow of hot water.
Most dwellings in Australia have a single-phase electrical supply to their electrical switchboard. While single-phase electric continuous flow hot water systems are available, in the southern half of Australia, the manufacturers do not recommend them to be installed due to the very limited water flow pressure and temperature, reducing even further in the winter months from these single-phase units. Throughout Australia, a 3-phase electric continuous flow hot water system will be suitable and provide the best flow and water temperature. Your electrician will be able to determine if there is 3-phase power available to your property.
If living in the northern states of Australia, single-phase systems will work due to the higher ambient water temperature feeding into the electric continuous flow hot water systems.
The higher the kilowatt (kW) rating of this system, the better and stronger the water pressure and the higher the temperature. The single phase units are available in sizes 4.8 kW (4800 watts – 20 amp single phase); 7.1 kW (7100 watts – 30 amp single phase); 9.5 kW (9500 watts – 40 amp single phase). The 3-phase systems are available in 14.2KW (14200 watts – 20 amp 3 phase); 19.4KW (19400 watts – 30 amp 3 phase); 29.1KW (29100 watts – 40 amp 3 phase).
