How does where I live affect the GWH?

Seasonal change create variations in cold water temperatures entering the Gas Water Heater.  During summer (and warmer months), you will experience good hot water flow rates and low gas consumption as the water heaters computer controlled processes ensure efficient use of ga,s to provide hot water

In the colder winter months, temperatures may vary between regions which directly affect cold water entering the water heater.  This means that in the colder regions (such as Gauteng, Free State, Limpopo, Mpumulanga) the gas water heater will have to slow the water flow down considerably in order to reach the set hot water temperature.  It also means you will use more gas to heat your water.  On those days of extreme cold, Paloma Gas Water Heaters have built in automatic frost protection devices to ensure freezing water cannot damage the unit.
