The great thing about gas hot water cylinders

You’ll love your bathroom more with gas water heating. Choose from either a gas cylinder or gas continuous flow. The main benefit of choosing a gas hot water cylinder is that many models will still work in the middle of a power cut.

Size up a new gas cylinder

Natural gas hot water cylinders come with different storage capacity, so are able to handle homes with multiple bathrooms.  Let the experts determine what size cylinder is best for your household. Rheem is a major manufacturer of natural gas hot water cylinders in New Zealand.

They can be flexible to suit both mains and low-pressure water, and there are models that can be installed internally as well as externally so you have the option of freeing up valuable space indoors.

Gas hot water cylinders are typically not quite as efficient as a gas continuous water heating system, but are still very powerful and reliable. They’ll heat water in the insulated cylinder faster than an electric cylinder.
