A critical household appliance is a water heater—but a water heater is the last thing you'd think of, as you'd probably be busy choosing toilet fixtures and pretty ceramic tiles.

Powered by electricity, the water heater warms cold water and prepares it for use in your showers, baths, kitchen, washing machines and even dishwashers. A manual dial or digital buttons control the water heat and temperature. But in most cases, we take our water heater for granted. But choosing the right water heater for your use and budget (and not to mention, bathroom style) is essential. 

Whether you're replacing an old water heater or installing one in a new house, here are six water heater types you can consider:

Sleek and slim.

Instant water heater tap.


A product that’s both a water heater and faucet in one will surely be handy in the kitchen and the utility room. Warm to hot water is needed in these areas as it helps to clean and dissolve grease and leftover food as well as opening up the pores when we do our facial cleansing routines. This is pocket-friendly, too.
