5 Myths about Water Heaters

Published on : July 22, 2022

We live in a day and age where we have all the world’s information available at our fingertips, yet it’s hard at times to tell fact from myth.

Let’s debunk some of the commonly held myths about water heaters:

1. It’s expensive

Water heaters are a one-time investment whose initial costs pay off in the long run. They’re built to last a long time, while some reputed brands offer maximum energy savings that help you save on electricity bills. There are a  wide array of water heaters to choose from depending on your needs—tankless, instant or storage water heaters, which come at variable price points, so you can choose one that suits your needs, and pocket as well.

2. Do not supply enough hot water

Depending on the capacity and the ambient temperature a waterheater can take anywhere between a few seconds to a couple of minutes to heat water. A.O. Smith has a range of instant, tankless & storage water heaters that supply steady hot water quickly with its high powered and efficient heating element. Heaters with storage tanks, typically 15 liters and above, ensure plenty and continuous flow of hot water, that’s enough for the whole household.

3. Not ideal for high-rise buildings

Most high-rise buildings have water tanks on the roof. With tall buildings as high as 10-20 storeys, water travels across at very high pressures. In such cases, it is best to opt for A. O. Smith water heaters, with 8-bar pressure rating which comes with sturdy build to sustain high pressures  and are long-lasting.

4. There are no eco-friendly/green water heaters

Though water heaters are known for their energy use, there are many energy-efficient options in the market that help you conserve electricity and maximise your energy savings. Explore our energy efficient  BEE 5 star rated water heaters, here.

5. Not well suited for hard water
