A Buyer's Guide To Water Heaters

Choosing the right kind of water heater is essential for long-term performance. However, finding a water heater that is right for your home and your family’s needs can be challenging. Let’s begin this quick guide that covers everything you need to know before buying a water heater:

The Different Types Of Water Heaters

Primarily, there are three types of heaters available in Singapore:
  • Storage Water Heater: A storage water heater is a type of water heater with a large-capacity tank to store heated water for on-demand use. Usually, these heaters take 15 minutes or more (depending on factors such as the quantity of water and heating efficiency) to heat the water.
  • Instant Water Heater: Instant water heaters are tankless systems that heat up water when it passes through the unit. This means an instant water heater doesn’t store hot water but provides hot water immediately when switched on. They are primarily available for a single-point water supply.
  • Gas Water Heater: Gas Water Heaters are mostly the tech of old times at this point. They are still widely used, and the latest options are available. There are some drawbacks to gas heaters, such as the difficulty of maintenance, so electric heaters remain the most popular choice for most Singapore households.

Factors To Consider For Water Heaters

Once you have chosen the kind of water heater you want to use, consider these factors when investing in a water heater.

Durability

A Buyer's Guide To Water Heaters Image Source: Viessmann Singapore Pte. Ltd Investing in a durable water heater will go a long way in ensuring you have a reliable supply of hot water with minimal maintenance and repairs. Check if the water heater has undergone quality checks and inspections and comes with a warranty. Other factors to consider:
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Alkaline resistance
  • Splash-proof features
Viessmann’s range of VITOWELL water heaters adopt the exclusive Ceratech Technology®, an enamel coating formula to enhance anti-corrosion and extend the durability of the water heater interior tank. Along with a high-quality ABS casing, this ensures dependability and saves consumers from maintenance and repair hassles, especially issues such as leakage. These features guarantee maximum corrosion resistance and are splash-proof – in line with the latest German quality standards for the long-lasting durability of the heater at its core.

Safety

A Buyer's Guide To Water Heaters Image Source: Viessmann Singapore Pte. Ltd Water heaters in Singapore are generally very safe as they undergo stringent testing before they are sold. However, safety issues occasionally occur due to improper installation and poor maintenance; these include electric shocks, explosions or fires. Consider these points before making a purchase:
  • Make sure that your water heater meets safety standards.
  • Approval or certification from certified protocols such as International Electrotechnical Commission’s Ingress Protection (IP) codes to prevent the unit from short-circuiting when sprayed or splashed
  • Overheating protection to prevent short circuits
All of the above can be found in Viessmann’s range of VITOWELL water heaters.  VITOWELL water heaters meet EU standards for health, safety, and environmental protection and are developed as per the strictest quality standards. VITOWELL comfort range (storage water heaters) is equipped with a double-safety thermostat to prevent short circuits and overheating, while the VITOWELL easy range (instant water heaters) has anti-scalding protection with auto-shutoff at 55°C. Viessmann professionals are also on hand to offer installation advice. Requests can be made through a contact form or WhatsApp: +65 80280468. 

Energy consumption

As an electrical appliance that consumes the second largest amount of electricity in Singapore households, an inefficient water heater can significantly increase electricity bills. Opt for a water heater with energy-efficient features that save not only the planet but also your money! Features to look out for include:
  • Water heating precision to save energy and prevent overheating or scalding for comfort while showering
  • Automatic heating for storage water heaters – to save energy and reduce electricity costs
All VITOWELL water heaters provide precise water heating via sophisticated temperature controls. Furthermore, VITOWELL instant water heaters feature Constant Temperature Technology to provide consistent water temperature irrespective of changes in the inlet water temperature. The VITOWELL comfort Deluxe storage water heater features a double power option with two independently controllable heating elements and low-consumption/ fast heating modes, providing more flexibility in the use of electric power. This model is also equipped with an electronic timer mode that enables water heating at 2 fixed times a day while it remains idle at other times. This means that hot water will be available when you want it, and you won’t have to worry about massive electricity bills.

Convenience (Time needed to heat up water)

A Buyer's Guide To Water Heaters The convenience factor and how long you would need to wait for hot water also play a crucial role when choosing the right water heater for your household. Features to consider include:
  • Convenient digital temperature displays
  • Temperature LED indicator for at-a-glance-convenience
  • Soft touch display for easy adjustment of water temperature
  • Fast heating time for quick hot showers any time of the day
Premium and Deluxe models for the VITOWELL easy and comfort range are equipped with digital displays to help users identify the water temperature before and while the heater is running, providing maximum control over the heating process. In addition, VITOWELL comfort Premium and Deluxe also feature LED indicators to provide quick sight confirmation and allow users to know the heating status at a glance without having to turn on the shower to check. VITOWELL easy and comfort Deluxe also have an easy digital stepless temperature adjustment with a soft touch display to make temperature adjustment a breeze. Looking at the heating time, the VITOWELL comfort Deluxe offers a ‘Double Power Option’ feature that can reduce its heating time by up to 40% under fast heating mode.

Design And Aesthetics

A Buyer's Guide To Water Heaters Image Source: Viessmann Singapore Pte. Ltd It is equally pivotal to consider the design, colour and other factors. A water heater can also play a significant role in enhancing your bathroom, and having a sleek heater, such as the range of Viessmann instant and storage water heaters, would be a great choice.
