Most families in Singapore are attracted to the idea of installing an Everhot water heater since it guarantees a hot water supply. Buyers must always consider that there are several factors that affect the cost of Everhot water heaters.
Just like any other appliance, Everhot creates a number of storage water heaters for the Singapore market. Buyers can choose the design, capacity, and features.
Some of the main factors which affect the price of Everhot water heaters are discussed below.
Type of Water Heater
A thing to consider when buying a new water heater is that the prices vary depending on the water heater’s design. Most people in Singapore prefer to buy a storage water heater since it has a simpler design and it is affordable at the same time. Everhot storage water heaters have a tank where the heated water will be stored, it is then released when needed.
Although, some people choose instant water heaters since there is a significance of installing energy efficient water heaters. Since they are energy efficient, they are more expensive compared to storage water heaters.
Additionally, water heaters are grouped based on their source of energy, and this may be a thing you didn’t know about water heaters. Even if electric heaters are commonly used, many homes and commercial properties are choosing to install gas and solar water heaters since it is affordable. Although, the cost for it is far higher than an electric heater. For solar water heaters, additional supplies will be needed, and it also requires more piping for the hot water.
The features to have in a brand-new water heater before purchasing are also a thing to consider. Keep in mind that it has advanced features, and the more costly it is. Expensive heaters will use condensing gas heat for heating, which lessens the electric consumption. A common water heater problem is the scale formation, and if the parts are anti-scale formation, it will add up to the price.
The quality parts of a water heater are made up of brass valves instead of plastic valves, and glass tank lining. Installed water heaters with a longer warranty of more than five years are usually more expensive compared to heaters that have a one-year warranty.
The water heater energy efficiency refers to the amount of heat it produces for each unit of the power source which is either electricity or gas. There are even several factors that can affect your water heater’s energy consumption. The water heater manufacturer usually indicated the energy efficiency of the water heater. If a water heater is more energy efficient, it will be more costly since they have a better design and lesser heat loss.
Instant water heaters are about 30% more efficient than storage heaters, although it costs more. Gas water heaters are usually also more efficient, however, it is also more expensive for the same capacity.
Water heaters with larger capacities can produce more hot water. Although, it requires more material and high rating parts. This increases the cost of materials and manufacturing the high-capacity water heater. Even transporting the heater is expensive since it has a large capacity. An important fact you should know about instant water heater installation is the capacity that is determined by the amount of water heater they produce. The cost will be higher if it requires more hot water.
Location of Water Heater Installation
Those storage water heaters that are installed in HDB houses are categorized as exposed installations. It will be easier to conduct a water heater replacement since they are visible. The thing to note during a water heater installation is the price of the installation since it includes job scope size and complexity. In some cases, homeowners install a new water heater model, and this could have a higher cost as pipes might need to be rerouted and other minor modifications to be made. Consulting a professional water heater service is an ideal choice since they provide a better estimation and reasonable pricing.
