With summer in full swing, many kiwis will be flocking to holiday homes around the country. The great kiwi batch or crib provides the perfect platform to discuss the ins and outs of Gas Storage versus Continuous Flow Water Heating.
Rheem Continuous Flow Water Heating is the ideal choice for many residential and commercial settings, the kiwi batch being the pivotal example. The unit heats on demand, can be left dormant for long periods of time and can supply an endless supply of hot water when required, such as those times when the batch is in full swing.
However, Continuous Flow water heating may not be the most efficient or economical option for everyone. A much more economical solution for medium to large dwellings with a medium to high hot water demand is a Rheem Stellar Storage Water Heater.
Designed for outdoor use and a leader in efficiency, the Rheem Stellar features a twin-flue design that recycles and condenses the flue gases making it the most efficient gas storage water heater available in New Zealand.
In fact the efficient cross over point for continuous flow water heating versus the Stellar is approx. 135 - 150 litres of hot water per day dependant on usage patterns. With a flow rate of up to 40 litres per minute, Rheem Stellar is ideal for massage showers and what's more it requires no electricity.
