In Singapore, the most common type of water heaters used in homes are electric storage water heaters and instant water heaters.
1. Electric Storage Water Heaters: These are commonly found in HDB flats (public housing) and some private residences. They consist of a storage tank that holds a certain amount of water, which is heated using an electric heating element. The heated water is stored in the tank and can be used whenever needed. These water heaters are suitable for households that require a large amount of hot water for multiple purposes, such as showering, washing dishes, and laundry.
2. Instant Water Heaters: Instant water heaters, also known as tankless or instantaneous water heaters, are gaining popularity in Singapore. They do not have a storage tank and heat water on demand. When you turn on the hot water tap, the cold water flows through the heater, where it is quickly heated by an electric heating element or gas burner, providing hot water instantly. Instant water heaters are compact, energy-efficient, and are often used in bathrooms where hot water is required mainly for showering.
Both types of water heaters are widely available in the market and can be purchased from home appliance stores or online retailers. The choice between the two depends on factors such as the household's hot water requirements, available space, and budget considerations.
