Why Thermann Could Be For You

Continuous flow hot water systems utilize the flow of water, providing a continuous stream at the temperature you desire, without having the extra baggage of storage!

Thermann’s latest range of continuous flow units is the perfect option and addition to New Zealand homes, catering to your personal needs.

As Thermann’s gas continuous flow water heaters heat the water only as you need, it becomes more environmentally friendly, reducing energy usage. This also helps you save more on your electricity bills. This characteristic and its usage technology gives it a 6-star energy rating, making Thermann’s gas continuous flow water heaters one of the most energy-efficient and affordable instant hot water systems on the market.

Aside from being energy-efficient, continuous flow water heaters also occupy less space because there is no need to accompany it with hot water storage units, which are the ones used traditionally. Its compact design allows it to be mounted on your wall, saving space with a small footprint. It can also act as a standalone system or can be used with other types of renewable technology.

Temperature controllers can also be installed to these units to accurately deliver required water temperatures to your faucets.

When you choose Thermann, you will be enjoying plenty of benefits such as:

  • Space saver – as it can be mounted on your wall with a small footprint only.
  • Heat water only as needed, so you will never run out of water.

  • Controllers may be installed to achieve the accurate water temperature you need ( which also helps children and elderly users).
  • Available in NG or LPG.
  • It comes in a variety of capacities.

Like with all continuous flow hot water systems, in some instances you need to be aware that:

  • There may be a need to upgrade your gas pipe, which may add up to your upfront costs.
  • A small amount of water ( approx. 1-2 liters) is wasted upon initial delivery.
  • You may notice a reduction in mains pressure when when high volumes of water are used.

These are things that you must consider when choosing which of the Thermann continuous flow hot water system units you chose. Not sure? Ask us for advice!

Some factors that will play a role in what size unit you need.

How Many Bathrooms Does You Have at Home?

When turning on the hot water tap, Thermann’s continuous flow gas hot water system is immediately put into action to supply hot water. However, heavy usage can occur in your home and Thermann acknowledges that. These moments arise during the mornings, when everybody is scrambling to take a shower, hence using more than 1 at a time. This can also happen when you have guests over. When choosing a continuous flow gas hot water, it is important to keep in mind your household and select the correct size.

More bathrooms will require you to purchase and install a larger system that can deliver more, an example of this will be the Thermann 6 Star Continuous Flow at 26 ( twenty-six) Liters.

Which Thermann Continuous Flow Gas Hot Water System Is the One for You?

With homes having 1 or 2 bathrooms only, the  Thermann 6 Star Continuous Flow at 16 liters or at 20 liters is suitable but you can always get a larger model to have more capacity in future, checking the price differnce is sometimes worth it. If you have 2-3 bathrooms in your household, a larger continuous flow hot water system will come in handy, such as the Thermann 6 Star Continuous Flow at 26 Liters.

Homes with home spas or bathtubs are recommended to purchase the Thermann 6 Star Continuous Flow at 26 liters or Thermann C7 Continuous Flow, which is available at 26 liters (higher demand). These units can cater to the biggest amount of water for your needs.

Installing your unit closer to the hot water tap/outlet to be used will be efficient in transporting the heated water to the fixture you are using, limiting the time it needs to travel from the source.

Other Accessories Needed

Installing Thermann Continuous Flow Hot Water Systems in enclosures will help protect the unit. Universal Continuous Flow Controllers are also available to control the temperature of the water to what you want.
