Common Misconceptions about Instant Water Heaters You Need to Know

(Last Updated On: January 24, 2018)

Many people feel that instant water heaters (also known as tankless water heater) are ineffectual, while others prefer them over other types. Instant water heaters are considered state of the art technology, especially when it comes to more modern designs. It can be a major decision when you have to change to a instant water heater from a storage water heater. There are many myths about instant water heaters, which can make you disinclined to make a changeover. Here are some common misconceptions about instant water heaters that you need to know.

Costly to operate

The truth is otherwise. Using instant hot water heater is relatively less costly, and can offer 20% savings on electricity bills. Storage water heaters keep water stored within a huge 30 – 40 gallon tank and takes about 30 mins for the whole tank to be heated up. Sometimes not all the water in the tank is used. Instant water heaters heat the water up only when it is in use. Thus, when you install water heater of this type, you will not have to pay on energy bills as much as you are supposed to do based on pre-assumed usage of hot water, reducing wastage.

Insufficient hot water

Storage water heater stores about 40 – 50 gallons of hot water. Once you use up that much water, you have to reheat another tank. Thus, there is low availability. However, an instant water heater will give you hot water as long as needed. Despite no storage tank, these types of heaters can ensure no dearth of hot water. Once water passes over the outlet’s heating element, water gets heated. You have to simply turn the tap on to get hot water whenever you need it.

Instant water heaters are unsafe to use

Many people are scared to install these, fearing that these heat up water to a very high temperature. It is only a myth, given that these heaters have an adjustable thermostat that can heat up water to a comfortable temperature – personalized to the needs of users. After you install tankless water heater, you can adjust the thermostat according to your requirements, and enjoy using water that is heated to an appropriate temperature.

All tankless water heaters are more or less the same

Although the tankless water heaters today are more evolved than before, some brands happen to be better in some applications as compared to others. Water heater in Singapore are generally the same but with advancements in technology, companies tends to push out new water heaters every year. Some of them come with inferior product support and are less reliable, while others can last long and are backed by efficient customer support.
