Things to Note Before Having an Instant Water Heater Installed

There are several benefits of installing an instant water heater at your property. However, it is important to understand some factors that make your property fit or unfit for instant water heater installation before getting into an installation service contract.

water-consumption-things-to-note-before-installing-instant-water-heater-installation-water-heater-city-singapore

Consumption
The instant water heater does not have a storage heater tank for water holding since the water is heated once you open the hot water faucet. This feature makes the instant water heater about 23% more energy-efficient and convenient for a prominent family.

Hot water usage patterns
In some cases, the instant water heaters can supply sufficient hot water to all of your hot water faucets at once. Besides, you can have a system set up where each tap receives hot water at a particular time.

Budget
The initial cost of installing the instant water heaters is quite expensive (around $700), but the long-term benefits exceed the short-term benefit of lower installation cost. As instant water heaters are more energy efficient; you will be saving on your utility power bills.

Current water heater
Your current water heater setup is another factor to consider when installing an instant water heater. The installation cost can increase significantly, especially if you hire plumbers, electricians, and other contractors.

Demand
Many property owners opt to install instant water heaters into their property, especially when they occupy less living space. They look for a water heater that can help reduce energy consumption and their monthly utility bill.

Important Facts You Should Know About Instant Water Heater Installation

The demand for installing an instant water heater is rising due to its efficiency in heating water faster than other models with a storage tank and taking more time to heat the water. Instant water heaters are suitable for compact spaces because they do not require ample space to install. Below are some important facts that you should know when installing a water heater.

They Have Low Operating Costs
Purchasing an instant water heater can be more expensive than buying a storage-type water heater. However, an instant water heater has a lower operating cost than other types. For example, storing 40 gallons of warm water for your household can be expensive in the long run, which is usual for storage water heater models.

They Reduce The Likelihood of Flooding
As stated above, instant water heaters do not require a central storage unit since the water is heated instantly once the faucet is opened. This reduces the need for storing about 40-gallon water reservoirs in the basement as well as eliminates any significant risk of water heater leakage that may cause flooding.

Routine Maintenance Is Essential for Instant Heaters
Hard water can bring risks to your instant or storage water heaters, especially if the water heater system is not regularly maintained. That is why your instant water heater requires water softeners, even if aging and sediment buildup is not an issue. Regular water heater maintenance will increase the lifespan of your unit significantly.

Brand Is Important
There are many top water heaters available in the market today, and they are all not manufactured the same. It would help if you had an assurance that the unit you are getting is worth your reliability and energy efficiency investment. We highly recommend that you choose a brand that has a known history of being a dependable and energy-efficient water heater.

They Should Be Professionally Installed
Water heaters are not simple electrical appliances that anyone can install anyhow without the necessary skills and tools. That is why you need a professional to do the installation process. For instance, the gas meter and gas piping must be appropriately sized if you’re using gas for heating water to avoid an emergency that can affect your water heater safety.

Factors Affecting The Cost Of Instant Water Heater Installation

storage-capacity-water-heater-factors-affecting-cost-of-instant-water-heater-installation-water-heater-city-singaporeWater Heater Size
Like most other home appliances, the cost of a water heater will depend on its capacity or size. A larger capacity water heater will be larger in dimensions, so the time and effort taken to install the water heater will be greater.

Modifications/Upgrades
In some cases, a family that wants to replace their instant water heater with a higher instant water heater capacity will require changes in the piping and electrical wiring required. Some families are replacing electrical water heaters with gas-type water heaters or vice versa.

installed-water-heater-factors-affecting-cost-of-instant-water heater-installation-water-heater-city-singaporeWorkmanship Guarantee
The quality of workmanship and instant water heater installation will depend on the plumbing service provider selected. They may also give a workmanship guarantee on the work which they do. One of the factors to note during water heater installation is that the plumbing service providers will usually charge more for the installation since their staff are well trained and use better quality supplies.

Installation Complexity
The complexity of the water heater installation depends mainly on the instant water heater model selected and whether changes in wiring and piping are required. The electrical wiring and piping may have to be modified or redone to be compatible with the new water heater.

Installer
Like any other product installation, the time is taken, and the quality of the installation work depends to a large extent on how experienced, well-trained, and skilled the plumber doing the installation work is to prevent your water heater from having problems. If the staff sent is an experienced plumber and has done many similar instant water heater installations, they will charge more compared to an inexperienced plumber, who is more likely to make mistakes.

Benefits of Buying An Instant Water Heater From A Reputable Installer

plumbing-water-heater-installation-guide-water-heater-city-singapore

Plumbing Expertise
If you are planning to buy a water heater, you will have to hire a water heater technician to install and fix a water heater if it becomes faulty. If the water heater technician supplies the water heater, he is well skilled and has the relevant plumbing experience to install the water heater.

features-water-heater-installation-guide-water-heater-city-singapore

Features and Quality
Water heater brands usually manufacture cheaper units with fewer features and inexpensive components for lower quality to sell more units. In contrast, the instant water heaters that they manufacture for selling to plumbing service providers are of professional-grade – using better quality components with improved features.

proper-installation-water-heater-installation-guide-water-heater-city-singapore

Proper Installation
The layout and size of the area where the heater is being installed should be considered before purchasing a water heater. If the family buys a water heater directly from a retailer, they usually do not check whether the heater design is suitable for water heater installation in the area available.

warranty-water-heater-installation-guide-water-heater-city-singapore

Warranty
Water heaters have a warranty of one to three years, and the life span of the heaters is often less than ten years. However, professional-grade instant heaters use the best components available, as they have warranties of up to five or six years. The water heaters will also last for a long period, in some cases, up to twenty years, if they are well maintained.

CSO Marc was very responsive and professional (not those 'text book' responses that one experiences with some businesses) and factual (in answering my queries) in my non-face conversación with him/her....that led me to conclude my work order with the company.I was not at home when Technician Casmir came to instal the new unit. But he prior called me and came within a few minutes. My son told me he did the job pretty timely and finished installation looks well done.A good experiencia for me and will most likely engage the company for future work.
