Half of Australian homes still prefer electric water heaters; at the same time, they’re responsible for 80% of hot water greenhouse emissions. Looking to cut back without sacrificing the comfort and convenience you’ve come to expect? We recommend reducing hot water consumption and employing GreenPower or other renewable energy sources to reduce your energy costs and environmental impact.
Electric storage water heaters of 160L or less usually use peak (day time) electricity and are generally the most expensive water heaters to run. Larger electric storage-tank systems employ cheaper off-peak electricity tariffs, where available, to heat their water at restricted times (usually overnight).
So, what makes home owners throughout Western Australia continue to go electric?
Sometimes it’s because they’ve had a great experience with the system they’re ready to replace. Others get used to paying their monthly utility bills and are comfortable with the amounts.
What’s more, natural gas is not universally available, such as throughout the Hills.
Plus, new electric storage tank systems, on average, cost less to purchase and install even though they generally cost more to run.

For more than 40 years, Australians have enjoyed the comfort, convenience and reliability of Rinnai household appliances.
The company has further solidified its position on Australian soil recently by opening their third manufacturing site in Australia in response to their recent growth, particularly in tanks. With more Rinnai tanks being made in our own backyard, more products tailored to suit your needs and local conditions are being produced.
The new facility brings the same high levels of innovation and automation to the design and manufacture of Electric Hot Water Storage cylinders as Rinnai has brought to Continuous Flow products.
The new Rinnai plant will also become their engineering and technology centre of excellence in Australasia, and the first Rinnai plant dedicated to the manufacture of vitreous enamel-lined hot water cylinders.
Rinnai’s hardworking range of Hotflo Electric hot water storage systems are available in various capacities. From their super compact 25 litre unit to their super-sized 400 litre storage cylinder, there’s a Rinnai tank for every household and application.
Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) specify the minimum level of energy performance that electrical equipment – including appliances, lighting and water heaters – must meet or exceed before they can be offered for sale or used for commercial purposes in Australia and New Zealand.
Inefficient products are prevented from entering the marketplace by using this minimum energy performance level, and manufacturers are given appropriate warning to increase product efficiency if they are not up to the required standard.
MEPS are mandatory for a range of products in Australia and New Zealand and all Rinnai products pass MEPS where they are required.
