The focus of the piece will be an objective, no-spin look at the best hot water system brands in our amazing country and answer the question: What is the best hot water system brand of all?
Even if you haven’t heard the name (but we’re sure you have), let’s start with a compelling fact: Thermann started small, but it’s now one of the absolute biggest hot water brands in this country. Backed by an established industry giant – Reece – Thermann has managed to get 500,000+ units of its Australian hot water service all over the land. Check our Thermann hot water review to find out more!
HOT PRODUCT: Continuous flow, gas, electric, solar, heat pump – take your pick. Our pick of the day is the Thermann Continous flow hot water unit – because reliable units in this category can be hard to find.
Although we’re hunting for the best hot water system brands Australia wide, we need to give some credit to the Japanese here – because Rinnai is a truly trustworthy name in hot water Australia. But Rinnai has also been right here Down Under for more than 50 years, with Rinnai Australia supplying world-class products that are in many cases sourced locally. We have reviewed Rinnai hot water systems so find out more!
HOT PRODUCT: If you’re browsing Australian hot water systems that are robust enough for our tough conditions, grab a Rinnai – like the Rinnai Infinity hot water units. Forget pressure loss with this continuous flow hot water system that provides hot water when you need it – there’s definitely a system here for your family!
Yes, the first Rheems were Californian-made drums – and that’s no lie. But by 1936, Rheem Australia was making its first Australian hot water service – and now you’ll find rock-solid Aussie BHP steel in your premium selection. Learn more about Rheem in our Rheem hot water systems review.
HOT PRODUCT: Do you want to “Install A Rheem”? Well then, the Rheem range will blow your mind. Our pick of the moment is a real doozie – the Rheem Stellar hot water units range. Clunky name, but the premium 5-Star energy-efficient hot water system means your hip pocket is safe and you’ll never run out of water.
If you don’t know about AquaMax, you’ve let an Australian award winner pass you by. Although just an industry baby that was born in 1988, Moorabbin-based AquaMax hot water systems has kept a laser focus on two particular product lines – electric tank storage systems and 5-Star gas systems. The result is a hot water system whose design, parts and manufacturing machinery are almost 100% done in-house.
HOT PRODUCT: It’s hard to go past the brand’s premium Stainless Steel range – because it’s just so good. For the gas lovers, these mains pressure systems can cope even after turning on a second, third and fourth tap.
Ok, so Bosch is a German brand – but Bosch Australia has plenty of Aussie grit too. So much so that the brand generates over $1 billion in revenue in our country alone each year – and employs some 1300 Australians at the factory in Clayton, Victoria.
HOT PRODUCT: Bosch’s Pilot Ignition gas continuous flow systems win the day here, because how many options do you really have if you’re not connected to electricity? No need for a power point and two capacity options – sounds like a great product to us.
