Types of Water Heaters That We Can Repair and Install

Storage Water Heater

Storage Water Heater

 

Storage water heaters consist of a tank that is used to store water. The water is then heated up and dispensed when in use. 

This heater can store up to 35 litres of water and is therefore suitable for families.

Pros

  • Consistent temperature
  • Suitable for rain shower
  • Suitable for families

Cons

  • Bulky
  • More expensive
  • Limited water supply

This is the most common option in Singapore homes.

Pros

  • Compact
  • Affordable
  • Limitless water supply
  • Suitable for families

  • Initial outflow is not heated up

Type Of Heater

There are 2 main types of heaters: instant and storage. Most homes in Singapore opt for an instant water heater. However, if you are not sure which one is better suited for you, our team will be able to advise you based on your unique requirements.

Location Of Installation

The location refers to the type of residence you live in; the more space you have, the more options you have. If space is a limitation, we would advise going for an instant heater as it is more compact. 

Durability And Maintenance

Typically, storage heaters can last for 8 – 12 years while instant heaters can last for 10 – 15 years. You are highly encouraged to get your heaters checked every 3 – 5 years for maintenance purposes.

Warranty

 

Whether you are getting a storage or instant heater, it is important to check the warranty period and coverage provided by each brand. Storage heaters tend to have a longer warranty period for its parts.

Common Water Heater Issues That We Can Repair

Heating Issues

Water Heater Heating Element

Due to a possible lack of power supplied to the heating element, it may cause a faulty fuse or loose connections.

Faulty Heater Thermostat

The thermostat controls the power supplied to the heating element. A faulty thermostat will cause the water supplied to be cold or too hot.

Heating elements may fail over time resulting in uneven heating or no heating to incoming water supply.

The dryer motor is unable to jump start rotation causing the heater to malfunction.

A water heater consists of two heating elements; if one fails, the heater can only provide warm water for a short duration.

Crossing of Hot and Cold Water Connections (Heater)

Improper plumbing can result in water incorrectly supplied to the heating element.

Water Related Issues

The temperature and pressure valve controls the pressure buildup in the water tank. A faulty valve may cause damage to the tank or major leakages.

Plumbing connections

A loose pipe connection or faulty pipes due to corrosion can cause leakages.

Damaged tank or loose connections to the input and output of the tank can cause leakages.

Corrosion from sediments or the sacrificial anode on the heating element can cause the water output to be brown or rust-coloured.

Sediment buildup on the bottom of the tank can cause overheating of the tank bottom and boiling to occur.

The decay of sacrificial anode causes bacteria to form, emitting a pungent smell from the tank.
