Summary

Before getting a water heater, check for the kind of features that you think you will need, like pump, type of pump, tank or tankless, price and budget. In this list, we picked tankless water heaters only, but with different variations.

 

What Is a Water Heater?

A water heater is a water heating device that generates heat with electricity or gas and transfers it to water intended for cleaning or bathing.

Types of Water Heaters

In Malaysia, there are mainly 2 types of water heater: tank water heater and tankless water heater. Common synonyms for both are storage (tank) and instant (tankless).

Water Heater Buying Guide

There are some buying factors that you need to consider before making the final decision. The main factors are:

  • Tank vs tankless: Tank water heaters are usually cheaper but they take a bit of time (5 – 15 mins) to heat up the water and the water capacity is dependent on the size of the tank. Tankless water heaters on the other hand, are limited to only 1 bathroom or outlet and are more expensive, but the installation process is way easier, are more energy efficient, produce unlimited hot water in an instant.
  • DC vs AC pump type: Water heaters often come with a built-in additional pump to ensure good water pressure. If you think the water pressure at your home could use a little boost, get a water heater with a pump. AC pumps are cheaper, stronger but noisy. DC pumps are more costly but produce way less noise and are more energy efficient.
  • Space: If you are getting a water heater with a tank, you need to ensure that there is adequate space in which to place it. Measure the size of the tank and consider the size of your household. Typically, 90-130 litter tank is suitable for 1-2 people.
  • Safety features: One must-have safety feature in a water heater is a built-in ELCB or (Earth Leakage Circuit Breaker) that will cut off power supply to the device in the event of an electric leakage. Another one is a splash proof casing of IP25 or higher.
  • Other features: You may want to get a water heater with a digital display if you have the budget.
  • Price & Budget: A basic water heater may go for slightly above RM200. Better quality for for between RM300 to RM800 and the high-end ones above RM800.
