Hot water systems provide heating for any water-based appliances and tools that need warm-water activities, like bathing, cooking, cleaning and room heating. Since time immemorial, heating water was already a normal household activity through the use of earthen vessels, like ceramic heaters, kettles, cauldrons, pots and coppers. These vessels are used by placing them on a stove or oven. However, these materials do not present a good solution for heating as their temperature dissipates quickly. Thanks to the advent of technology, modern appliances became available to provide a continued supply of the hot or warm water.
Fuels like natural gas, petroleum, diesel, gasoline and coal are conventional examples of sources of heat for water-based appliances. It can also produce electricity or directly used for drinking, cooking and washing clothes. Alternative and renewable energy, such as solar energy, heat pumps, heat recycling and geothermal heating are sometimes used to power water-heating appliances. Despite the advantages of using the most advanced and eco-friendly heaters, there is still a percentage of Australian households who prefer traditional ways of heating water.
