Types of heaters
Types of water heaters are divided according to various criteria: method of installation, principle of operation, power source.
According to the first criterion, water heaters are divided into floor-standing and wall-mounted.
Wall-mounted water heaters do not take up much space and are very practical to use. They are mainly used in places where large amounts of water are not required, such as the kitchen.
The small tank is attached to a couple of hooks on the wall, it should be noted that you should hang such a water heater only on a solid wall.
Floor standing water heaters are designed for those who have a water consumption of more than 50 liters per day. It is not possible to hang such a device on the wall. One of the main advantages of floor standing water heaters is the large volume of water tank.
Also, because they don’t need to be attached to the wall, just put them somewhere in the room, thanks to their upright and narrow shape, they can fit in any room.
If your home allows you to install any of the above water heaters, then you should determine how much water you use per day.
Water heaters are divided into flow-through, storage, and bulk water heaters by the type of operation.
Pour water heaters are quite primitive in their construction, their components are a tank, a faucet and an element that heats the water in the tank. The device of this type is quite simple, it can be installed almost anywhere. The main disadvantage of this type of water heaters is the small volume of water that can be placed there.
Mostly such “washer-dryers” are installed for washing hands and dishes in the kitchen or outside, but there are more advanced models, you can compare them in the store or in the picture of water heaters.
There are flow-through water heaters for summer homes with plumbing. The work of such devices involves heating water when you use it for its intended purpose. This type of water heater does not have a tank for storing water, it is heated under the pressure, respectively, the less pressure, the hotter the water.
This unit somewhat resembles a box, it has a significant disadvantage – you have to choose between the head and the temperature of water.
Flow-through water heaters are divided into pressure and non-pressure water heaters.
The main feature of non-pressurized water heaters is that their internal pressure does not exceed atmospheric pressure. Because of the small capacity, this device should be used as a summer shower for example.
Pressure flow water heater is a much more complex and powerful device. It is not popular among dacha owners, because it is not budgetary and consumes a lot of electricity. It is distinguished by the absence of nozzles, there are connectors for connecting to the water system.
This type of water heater is especially suitable for people who consume a lot of water per day. The advantage of storage water heaters is that they are able to supply hot water without affecting the head. However, this type of water heating system is not cheap at the moment, as well as quite often corrosion of the internal elements, which prevent the operation of the unit, so you should think carefully when choosing a water heater.
Water heaters in domestic use are divided into gas and electric.
Gas water heaters.
If your dacha has been conducted mains gas, then you can safely put a gas water heater. When using this type, you will save a lot on electricity, as well as with the comfort of using your unit.
Electric water heaters.
They are the safest and easiest on the market at the moment. They have great design and good ergonomics. They can fit perfectly into almost any interior. The convenience of electric water heaters is also reinforced by the fact that they do not require special permission from various services for installation, such as the gas one.
Faucet water heater
It is also worth mentioning such a device as a water heater on the faucet. It is an enlarged faucet, inside which the heating element is hidden. The only distinguishing feature of this faucet is that it looks like a simple faucet, but it is distinguished by a wire that leads to a power source.
Choosing a water heater
So, here we come to the main topic of the article. How do you choose a water heater for your home?

But do not forget about its price, as a rule, it is an order of magnitude more expensive than the gas version.
Also, if you do not need a lot of water, at most to wash your hands or wash, then you will be quite enough of a water heater, it is absolutely not expensive and easy in its use.
