What is a gas hot water system?
A gas hot water system is a standard hot water system that uses gas to heat the water. Gas hot water systems have a pilot light, where electric systems do not. Simply put, gas water heaters heat your water by burning either LPG or natural gas depending on the type of system. The heater will exhaust the produces heat into dwelling space, thus providing you with the hot water for your shower.
