Choosing the Right Hot Water Heater
If you determine that it is indeed time to replace your hot water heater, you will want to take steps to select the
right model. Hot water heaters vary based on the type of energy they use to heat the water as well as the amount of
hot water that they can supply. Because a tankless hot water heater heats water on demand, you may never run out of
hot water. However, it is important to note that only so much hot water can pass through this hot water heater at a
time. Some of these models may not be beneficial in a high demand household where, for example, multiple showers
may be taken at once while running the washing machine and dishwasher. However, it may be possible to install a
tank-style hot water heater that meets your needs or to create a system of two or three tankless units to meet your
needs. We can provide you with expert guidance to help you select the right water heater for your HDB home as well
as your budget.
