In engaging in water heater installation, many different types of storage water heaters and instant water heaters are available in the market to choose from. However, it is observed that a majority of Singaporean homeowners prefer to install a storage water heater in their homes. A homeowner would like to find out why it is the preferred choice for most families so that he can make the right decision. 

Some of the reasons why are discussed in detail below:

Shared Bathrooms


Many homes in Singapore have multiple bathrooms, and installing a water heater for each bathroom is expensive. Homeowners may ask if they should either install a storage or an instant water heater. However, the obvious answer to that is to opt for a storage water heater installation. 

It will reduce the initial investment in multiple heaters for each bathroom, and the family can use just a single large storage heater to supply hot water to different bathrooms. What you should know about storage water heaters is that it costs less in terms of installation and maintenance compared to instant water heaters. 

Compact Bathroom


In Singapore, due to the high real estate rates, a large number of people are living in smaller houses, flats, and the bathroom is also smaller in size. In order to cater to the varying requirements of the customers, there are many storage water heater models or series to choose from available in the Singapore market. 

The top 3 best-selling water heater brands and its products are available in various sizes, designs, and can be installed on the ceiling or beams of a compact bathroom. This flexibility in size and installation options make the storage heaters ideal for small bathrooms 

Bathroom Décor


Most of the water heaters available in Singapore are cylindrical in shape and similar in design. Hence, many homeowners wish to conceal it and opt to install a storage water heater with false ceiling repair. In this way, it will not affect the bathroom décor. 

To overcome this problem, the top 3 best-selling water heater brands in Singapore are now selling new designs of storage heaters that blend well with the bathroom decor. The storage water heaters are available in different smaller sizes that can easily be integrated with the existing bathroom décor. In this way, the homeowner does not have to invest money to conceal it after installation. 

Immediate Hot Water Access


Though instant or tankless water heaters are considered more efficient, they will produce hot water only when switched on, there is no ready supply of hot water available. So if there is no electricity in the house for some reason, it will not be possible to get hot water till the power supply is restored. In contrast, even if there is no electric supply to the house, the user can get hot water for some time, since hot water was stored in the water heater. The storage heater is also the preferred choice if a large amount of hot water is required since there is some amount of hot water already available and the water can be heated quickly. 

Most Singaporeans see the significance of installing energy efficient water heaters. Although there are also more reasons to opt for instant water heater installation, saving energy and resources has become a must in many households.

However, if there is no electricity in the house for some reason, it will not be possible to get hot water until the power supply is restored. In this case, knowing the features to have in a brand-new water heater before purchasing can be beneficial to fully cater to your needs. You should also check whether the storage water heater has a great insulation technology so that when you need hot water even if there is no electricity, it will be stored and readily available.


Choosing to opt for a storage water heater installation can be the best decision for you if you live in a smaller home with shared and compact bathrooms, if you are conscious with your bathroom decors, and if you need immediate access to hot water.
