So here you are, entering your new house and super excited to making this house a home. When it comes to making your bathroom cozy, you are considering so many things like adding a unique faucet, coloring the wall and installing a water heater too.
When it comes to water heaters, there are two main types: storage water heaters or tankless water heaters. Both types have their own set of pros and cons, and both have the ability to elevate your shower experience.
Apart from tank or tankless, water heaters can also be classified according to power sources. Broadly speaking, in Singapore, water heaters tend to be powered mainly by electricity, although there is a small fraction of water heating products that use gas. In this article, we shall be focusing on the advantages of getting an electric storage tank, and how an electric storage water heater can give you a premium shower experience. Here are five advantages of an electric storage tank:
An electric storage water heater Singapore is a good choice for a home as it provides users with a consistent water pressure. For tankless water heaters, water pressure tends to fluctuate, depending on how many taps or faucets are open. The more open taps or faucets you have, the lower the water pressure you may experience from your electric tankless water heater.
On the other hand, when it comes to storage water heaters, water is already heated and stored in a water tank. Hence, when you open the faucet for a hot shower, the hot water will come from the storage tank. This means that no matter how many taps or faucets are open, water pressure will remain consistent.
Electric storage water heaters are typically more durable than tankless water heaters because of several features. For instance, Rheem’s electric storage water heaters all come with enamel coating in their inner tank to provide a layer of protect against corrosion. In addition, Rheem electric storage water heaters also come with an anode rod to further protect the inner tank from rust and corrosion, hence enhancing the lifespan of the storage water heaters.
Electric tankless water heaters typically provide hot water to one main source: the bathroom. On the other hand, electric storage water heaters can easily be connected to multiple bathrooms in your home. This simply means that all you need is just one electric storage water heater to enjoy hot showers simultaneously at several bathrooms at home.
Tankless water heaters heat water on demand. This means that heating only begins as soon as you open the faucet. Because water must be heated instantaneously, the temperature required to heat water has to be very high. And with a high heating temperature, naturally, more electricity is required, hence the energy consumption tends to be higher.
On the other hand, energy consumption for storage water heaters may be slightly lower at times, because the heating intensity is not as great as tankless water heaters. Moreover, Rheem electric storage water heaters come with high density polyurethane foam (PUF) that helps to insulate the inner tank to minimize heat loss. This means that after heating water, you can turn off the power for the electric storage water heater, and hot water will remain warm for several hours. Hence, the next time you turn on the storage water heater several hours later, you may not need to spend much time or energy heating the water up.
Rheem electric storage water heaters are built to last. If, in the unfortunate event when Rheem electric water heaters fail to function properly, it is easy to repair. This is because the parts are easily replaceable, without having you to go through the trouble of uninstalling and reinstalling an entirely new unit. This saves you time and cost.
