Which one should I choose?
This is a complex question and is best answered by a discussion with one of our qualified hot water technicians. However basically it is dependent on your intentions and site conditions.

If you have a high demand for hot water at frequent intervals during the day you will require a model with a back up element. If your household demand in the morning is less than 250 litres and then your next demand would be six hours or more later, then the Dux Aeroheat is by far the better choice as it is the cheapest to run per litre of hot water produced.
