Electric water heaters for cottages with a heater

We have already mentioned that water heaters often work with electricity. Gas, firewood, solar energy and other ways of heating water are used in such devices much less often. Despite the greater convenience, safety of operation and many other advantages, electric water heaters have their drawbacks.

  1. First, electric energy costs more than gas, so these devices are less economical. Secondly, the heater, due to which water is heated, is prone to corrosion and scale formation, which can disable the device.
  2. And, finally, during outages, which are not uncommon in cottages and villages, you run the risk of not having hot water.

Filling water heaters


The installation of a water heater at the cottage is a very simple task, which can be easily handled alone, without special experience in this area.

  • Before proceeding with installation, make sure that the surface will withstand the load from the water heater. Consider not only the weight of the device itself, but also the weight of the water. Particular care must be taken when installing on a wall made of plasterboard and other unstable materials.
  • Electric water heaters usually have a small power, so do not create an increased load on the network. However, for your own safety, you should always connect the ground to the working socket. The fuse will also not be superfluous, but if the capacity of the water heater is low, you can do without it.
