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.
- 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.
- 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.
