Knowing your water heaters

Last Updated: May 27, 2014 01:40PM SGT
“ I can’t wait to head home for a shower!” Rings a bell? Taking a hot relaxing shower has become the highlight of many people’s daily routine at home. Although it is known to many that cold showers are highly beneficial to us, taking a hot shower have its pros as well, as long as you keep your shower within 10 minutes.
A hot shower is able to warm your body up on a cold morning and allow you to relax after a workout. Hot steam can moisturize your nasal passages, reliving your from your cold. With a powerful showerhead, hot water is also able to sooth your stiff muscles and neck, hence calm your nerves before you sleep.


How does your water heater works?

The mechanics behind your water heater is easy to understand, but by no means simple. There are two types of water heater- the more traditional storage water heater and the more recent instant water heater, which is also known as “on demand” water heater. The current storage water heater retain the idea from traditional water heater system, which operates with a huge water tank, which the new tankless systems is built to heat incoming water as and when we need it.

In Singapore, we mainly use electric instant water heater or storage tank. Instant water heaters are quipped with flow sensors that will activate when we turn on our heater switch. When we on our shower tap, cold water enters the instant heater through the inlet and circulates through a high resistant heating element. Through a negative feedback loop, the heating element will be heated up via electrical heating, indirectly heating the water and bringing it up to the targeted temperature. Water will then exit through the instant heater outlet and is transferred to our showerhead.

On the other hand, storage water heaters store cold water inside the tank, and when we turn our heater switch on, it will automatically trigger the heater sensor and heat up the heating element via electrical heating, indirectly heating the cold water inside to the indicated temperature.
