Applications Of Hot Water Heaters
So let’s delve right into the basics! Water heating is a thermodynamic process that makes use of an energy source to change the temperature of water above its initial temperature. Generally, water is locally heated in containers like water heaters, cauldrons, kettles, coppers or pots. These containers, when heating a lot of water do not generate a continuous supply of boiled water at a default temperature.
Types of Hot Water Heaters
- Storage water heaters: This is also known as the tank type and it is made up of a cylindrical vessel that makes water continuously hot and available for usage.
- Tank-less heaters: It can be referred to as instant-on, continuous flow, instantaneous, inline, on-demand, or flash water heaters. They are high-power water heaters that immediately heat up water as it passes through the container. It does not hold back any water inside aside from the water inside the heat exchanger coil.
- Electric shower heads: This is added or fixed into the shower heads to immediately heat up the water as it passes through. The self-heating electric shower heads are used in some countries and they are specialized for point-of-use (POU).
- Solar water heaters: Solar collectors are fixed outside the house, commonly on the walls or roof, the unique hot water container is commonly an old or new water heater made for the solar thermal.
