A Buyer’s Guide to Gas Water Heaters

| Wednesday January 4, 2023

There are many different types of gas water heaters on the market in Malaysia.  With so many variations and options to choose from, it can be confusing and even overwhelming trying to decide which one is right for you and your family. 

A gas water heater is a great choice for many homes and businesses. There are a few things to consider when choosing a gas water heater, such as the size of the unit, the type of gas it uses, the warranty, and energy efficiency. With a little research, it is easy to find the perfect gas water heater for any home or business.

Here is a buyer’s guide to help you make the best decision!

There are two basic types of gas water heaters: storage and tankless. Storage water heaters have a tank that holds a certain amount of water. The water is heated and then stored in the tank until it is needed. Tankless water heaters do not have a storage tank. Instead, they heat the water as and when it is needed. Storage water heaters are the most common type of gas water heater. They are less expensive than tankless heaters and are easier to install. However, they are not as efficient as tankless heaters and they take up more space.  

Tankless water heaters are more expensive than storage water heaters, but they are more efficient and take up less space. They are also more challenging to install. When choosing a gas water heater, you need to decide what size you need to properly meet the demand for hot water in the household or commercial property. Storage water heaters are available in a variety of sizes, from small to large – which makes it easy to find one with the capacity to perfectly meet the hot water demand. Tankless water heaters are also available in a variety of sizes, however as most tankless water heaters are built to be more compact, there usually isn’t much variation in sizes and styles for tankless water heaters.

One of the most important considerations when choosing a gas water heater is the size of the water heating unit. It is important to choose a water heating appliance that has enough capacity to meet the hot water needs of the home or business. If the unit is too small – meaning that it can only hold a small amount of heated water in its storage tank, the water heater will not be able to keep up with the demand and will not be very efficient. In addition, when choosing a gas water heater, it is important to consider the warranty. Some manufacturers offer longer warranties than others. It is important to read the fine print of the warranty to understand what is covered and what is not.

Moreover, it is also important to decide what fuel you want to use. Gas water heaters can be fueled by natural gas, propane, or electricity. Natural gas is the most common type of fuel, but it is also the most expensive. Propane is less expensive than natural gas, but it is not as widely available. Electricity is the least expensive type of fuel, but it is not as widely available as natural gas or propane. When choosing a gas water heater, you also need to decide what features you want. Some features include a thermostat, a timer, and a remote control. 

Thermostats allow you to set the temperature of the water. Timers allow you to set how long the water heater will stay on. Remote controls allow you to turn the water heater on and off from a distance. Once you have decided what size, fuel, and features you want, you can start shopping for your gas water heater.

Another important consideration when choosing a gas water heater is energy efficiency. There are a few different ways to measure energy efficiency, but the two most important are the Energy Factor (EF) and Thermal Efficiency (TE). The EF measures the overall efficiency of the unit, while the TE measures the efficiency of the heat exchanger.

Finally, it is important to consider the cost of installation when choosing a gas water heater. Many units require professionals for a safe installation. Considering the look of the water heater would also affect the cost. This is because, if the look of the water heater does not fit the aesthetic of your house or commercial property, you may be more inclined to hide the water heating unit behind a false ceiling. If you’re looking to simply install the water heater without creating a false ceiling to conceal it, the look of the water heater may be an important feature to consider as well.
