Factors to Consider


A sound hot water system lasts for many years. It is necessary to choose a credible brand, the right type, and size of the water system that is energy-efficient, hassle-free, and budget-friendly. While comparing various hot water systems, it is useful to consider a few factors. It helps to shortlist your choices and arrive at a smart purchase decision.


  1. The Right Fuel Source


Hot water systems come in a variety of fuel type choices such as gas, electricity, hybrid, solar system, etc. You need to base the selection of a heater on your preference and living conditions.  Let us see how. A solar-based water heater needs a lot of sun exposure. Consistent availability of gas is favourable factor for a gas-based hot water system. Electric heaters are best suited for winter. So, consider these factors in your location, match them with your preference to opt for the right water heater.


  1. Physical Size of the System


People mostly have a specific place in their house to install a hot water system. Generally, the hot water system is installed in a narrow space outside the home. It is better to take the correct measurements of the place before selecting a water heater. You need to ensure that the chosen water heater fits into that place perfectly.


  1. Size of Your Household


The size of a water heater is the flow rate in litres of water per minute. This is related to the number of hot water outlets a heater serves as well as the number of people in your house. If your house has two bathrooms, as a thumb rule, a flow rate of 22-24 L/min serves the purpose. The best way to make the right choice is to consult the hot water system installers to get the correct idea of the size that will suit your needs.


The above tips will help to guide you in selecting the right type of water heater for your house and needs.
