Inner city living in Brisbane has many great benefits.

With increased development demand for this style of home, modern appliance design has needed to keep pace by reducing the size of household essentials. Washing machines, fridges, dishwashers, and cooktops have all had the shrink-ray treatment to fit into our new ultra-condensed homes.

The overall populations increased awareness of eco-friendly subsistence is another factor which has encouraged appliance manufacturers to tweak designs and produce more economical and environmentally friendly products.

Hot water systems are not exempt from this progression. The old style large tank electric storage hot water system is being phased in favour of smaller, less power hungry varieties. Instantaneous gas hot water systems are a perfect example of this movement, offering a compact water heating solution for residents living in small homes and apartments.
