Taking cold showers can be bad for your health especially if you are living in a cold region. It is a common experience that when you are desperately seeking to buy a new water heating system, you may not be tranquil enough to think and decide. Rather you may go for any option you get them.

Water Heating Systems

Hence here are the choices for water heating systems which you may get. 


The present day hot water systems are powered by solar, electricity, or gas.  The electrical hot water systems are less expensive. They can be installed anywhere, both outdoors and indoors but they use electricity. Naturally, when there is a power cut they will not produce any hot water and you will have to compromise. Also, such heating system causes an increase in electric use, therefore power bills are always high at the end of the month.

The next option you have is a natural gas-powered water heater system. These are generally installed outdoors as they need vents. You can also install one indoor with a flue. They are powered by natural gas, and thus due to the lower price of gas compared to electricity, the running cost of these heaters is low.

Solar water heaters, needless to say, are cost-effective. But their installation is expensive, and it takes time as well. If you opt for this option, you will have to install a larger water tank keeping in mind that there may be some days when you may be getting a little sunshine.

In case, you are living in a warm or hot region, and are planning to install a hot water system, you may go for the heat pump hot water system. The heat pump system works on the same mechanism as air conditioners do. It extracts heat from the surrounding air, and transfers heat to water through pipeline. This way they use a compressor too, which makes some noise, though not too noisy. But it is sensible to install the system away from the audible range, so that you avoid disturbances for yourself and the neighbors.

Systems differ in terms of storage too. Some systems would store the hot water for later use. Some would not store, and rather give you a constant flow of hot water when you open the tap. If you are relying on the instant water heater, then you will have to keep in mind that when the power is off, you will not get hot water. But with a storage system, hot water will always be stored for later use inside an insulated tank, thus making hot water available in limited quantities, even when the machine is not running. 


When you are planning to install a hot water system at your home, you will have to keep in mind that, you must get the house inspected by an expert, so that the house area, the amount of daily water consumption etc, are inspected as important factors, thereby helping you decide the suitable water heating system.
