Widely available, these types of electric water heaters are the most common, installation is fairly straight forward (for a professional) and quite often the least expensive. They include a large water tank that stores hot water for use on demand. The water is heated by electric heating elements.
These provide hot water on demand by heating water as it travels through the unit. This makes them quite efficient as you’re only using energy when you need it. Larger households with significant hot water needs can experience issues as a tankless system won’t keep up with demand. However, you can install multiple units to overcome these issues. They don’t take up much space. They are rated in terms of how much water is heated per minute e.g. 4.6 litres/min and should be selected as such opposed to the tank size in a storage water heater.
This style of water heater is unique in that is uses heat in the air or in the ground to heat water. This means that electricity is only used to move heat from the ground or air to the water, making them very energy efficient. Heat pumps can use up to 60% less electricity than traditional water heaters. They can be quite large, so you’ll need more space for heat pumps. Because this water heater style relies on pulling heat from the ground or air around it, it will not work very well in cold spaces like basements or in climates where it is excessively cold for long periods throughout the year. They can also be expensive, but it’s a great investment knowing you’ll spend far less on your heating bills.
Unvented electric water heaters heat water directly from the mains water supply. This means they benefit from higher pressure/flow rates and more balanced hot/cold water supplies and can be installed practically anywhere. They’re the ideal water heating system for properties with multiple outlets, like kitchens and bathrooms.
Vented electric water heaters are generally installed over the sink area. They have an open outlet, so rely on a tap or valve opening on the inlet side to displace the hot water stored in the heater. There are ideal for use with single sink needs like in a kitchen, surgery or office.
It’s important to understand the difference, so you can search for the right electric water heating product for your needs.
Electric water heaters are widely available and work well with conventional tank-type designs as well as tankless water heaters and heat pump systems.
Modern electric water heaters are also extremely efficient as they convert all energy they use into heat for the water. Electrically powered water heaters heat using coiled elements and then act intermittently to maintain a pre-set temperature, therefore minimising energy wastage. They also don’t require as much maintenance as your typical gas heater.
Domestic hot water or D.H.W is the term coined for heated water intended for human use. The most common are the bath, shower or sink, but it’s also used for cleaning and household appliances like washing machines and dishwashers.
