In NSW all new dwellings are subject to a BASIX assessment prior to the lodging of a development application. There is both an Energy Saving and a Water Saving Target, and both of these currently have a usage reduction target of 40%. BASIX assessments are dependant on a number of energy and water saving meassures with the type of water heater selected being an important consideration.
Other things that should be taken into consideration when selecting the right heater include energy style, performance, efficiency and running costs and the total cost of installation.
Dux Hot Water has a broad range of products allowing you to make the right choice.
