Installation/Replacement of Storage Heaters in HDB 


The time and effort required for installing or replacing a storage heater in an HDB depend on whether the storage heater is exposed or concealed above a false ceiling. The process of replacing or installing the storage heater is relatively simple for a heater that is not concealed.  Check with the plumber for the pricing before proceeding to install or replace your storage heater. This is because the price may vary for the following – when you have to do a new installation where piping has to be only installed or replaced of the same size or when the heater is replaced by a larger capacity heater as the piping has to be changed.


Installation/Replacement of Storage Heaters Above False Ceiling 

For installation of storage heaters of lower capacity which are concealed above a false ceiling, an access panel is required of size 300 mm X 300 mm, and this will add to the cost of installation – it is recommended to check with the plumber for their pricing as it varies for a basic installation or replacement as opposed to if there are any piping to be replaced.

High-capacity storage water heaters are used in bathrooms with a bathtub and have a capacity of 80 liters or more. The process of installation or replacement above a false ceiling is far more complicated since the heaters are larger in size. In some cases where there is limited space available, a site analysis will first be required.
