The energy consumption of a storage water heater is higher (depending on the water heater size), as compared to other common home appliances in Singapore. A storage water heater normally has a dedicated electrical circuit with a circuit breaker, which will automatically stop the electrical supply if the current goes beyond the safety limit. 

In order to use the storage water heater, the homeowner will have to turn on the circuit breaker again. There are times wherein the circuit breaker will regularly trip, hence the heating element of the water heater will be damaged. It is important to know the reasons why your water heater is tripping the circuit breaker. In order to prevent such situations from happening, consider installing a 707 water heater

High Quality Heating Element 


A thing you did not know about water heaters is that the number of heating elements (could be one or more) will depend on the size of the water heater. If you are using your water heater for many years or the heating element is made up of poor quality materials, then it can get burnt or damaged over time. The resistance of the burnt heating element will be reduced, thus raising the energy consumption, making the circuit breaker trip. 

In case the heating element is defective, use a multimeter to check. The resistance will depend on the rating of the heating element. Take note that the indication changes if there is damage. 

The reasons to buy a good quality 707 water heater such as the 707 Kensington 35 storage water heater is that they have a blue enamel coated heating element which makes it highly resistant to corrosion and is very durable. Therefore, users will have nothing to worry about having a burnt heating element, even if they use it for a long time. 

Reliable Thermal Cut Off

There is at least one thermostat connected to the power supply when adjusting the water temperature of the storage water heater. As part of water heater safety, the thermostat will stop the power supply to the heating element if the temperature is going beyond the fixed temperature. This will also prevent the water from being heated further. However, if the thermostat is damaged, the water will keep on heating, and the heating element will consume more energy – a factor that can affect your water heater’s energy consumption

Replacing your water heater with a 707 storage water heater, it may prevent your circuit from tripping. 707 storage water heaters have a thermal cut off which stops the power if the water temperature increases. This safety system feature also will protect you from scalding. 


Prevents Water Leaks


There are times wherein the gasket of the water heater detaches or other parts obtain holes, which is another reason behind water heater leaks. Take note that water is a good conductor of electricity, and it can lead to a short circuit that trips the circuit breaker. Therefore, it is ideal to hire a professional as they know if your water heater is leaking

If you are looking for a high-quality water heater, consider installing a 707 water heater. This is because it is built with a blue enamel tank – a material that is durable enough to prevent any leaks

Regularly Inspect Breaker Or Wiring


There are cases wherein the circuit breaker trips frequently and instead of troubleshooting the issue, some users turn it on every time. This may lead the circuit breaker to malfunction. Another reason why a storage water heater keeps tripping your circuit breaker is due to a damaged part. The wiring which connects the breaker to the water heater can be defective because of the heating. Pests eat the insulation, which results in a short circuit, hence the breaker and wiring must be regularly inspected. 

To prevent such situations from happening, it is recommended to opt for 707 storage water heaters. What you should know about storage water heaters from 707 is that they are made up of a blue enamel coated tank which prevents your water heater from tripping the circuit breaker. 

Hire A Professional To Replace Your Storage Water Heater

To avoid further problems with your current water heater, it is not advisable for you to replace your water heater with a 707 Kensington 25 storage water heater or a 707 Kensington 35L storage water heater. Hiring a professional to install your 707 storage water heater is an ideal choice since they are highly trained and they are also equipped with the right tools to complete the installation job. 



One of the cons of storage heaters is that they can trip a circuit breaker. The factors that can cause a circuit breaker to trip are a burnt heating element, a defective thermostat, water leaks, and poor breaker or wiring. In case your storage water heater trips your circuit breaker repeatedly, it is recommended to replace it with a 707 storage water heater.
