Hot water systems are not created equal. The type your neighbours have may not necessarily be the right choice for you. You will need to weigh up the number of people who access the hot water, budget, energy efficiency and your preferences.
If there is not a reasonable water flow this can affect the temperature resulting in a switch between hot and cold. It could be made worse by flow restrictors located in the shower head. There are ways around this, call us to book a service to ensure your hot water is working as efficiently as it should be.

Your house must have a big, north-facing roof and room to locate a ground-mounted hot water storage tank. You must also not have excess shade.
