Gas water heating | Circular Project
Gas water heating in New Zealand is usually done by instant gas systems. This is where no water cylinder is in the house. The big advantage is that the vast majority of water heated is the one used. Only what is left in the pipe after usage of hot water is wasted (whereas in a hot water cylinder all water in the cylinder is heated).

Heatpump water heating | Circular Project
A heat pump works by transferring heat instead of creating electricity. The heat pump takes the air of the surrounding and with the help of a refrigerant takes the heat out of that air. The cold air is blown back into a different direction. Within the heat pump the warm air is then pumped into a compressor, creating further heat. Finally the heat is then circulated throughout the water tank by heat transfer or by circulation of the warm refrigeration liquid.

Solar water heating | Circular Project
Many people choose solar for different reasons. They might want to be more self sufficient, save money on their power bill (water heating counts to on average 30%) or simply like the idea of utilising renewable energies. Solar will potentially tick all of those boxes for you. While access to sunlight is dependent on your specific site, roof direction and the mounting angle of the collectors, solar can benefit most New Zealanders and their wallets in the mid to long term.
