should remember: Instantaneous electric water heaters are a group of electrical appliances increased danger.If you are installing a flow device mistakes insulation and grounding, when operating in conditions of high humidity is too high a risk of short circuit and dangerous injuries of people, until irreversible.Accumulating
water heaters (and electrical and gas) to heat water to a temperature of 110 ° C in large volumes - from 30 to 200 liters.Accumulation water heaters are particularly valuable in the settlements, where they often cut off electricity: a storage tank is designed on the principle of the thermos and is capable of for a long time to maintain the desired temperature of water.Disadvantages cumulative electric heaters too bulky dimensions of the storage tank and a high price.However, the dimensions of the problem can be easily deleted by setting the unit in an attic or other auxiliary room.
If the room and the house are located in the building under one roof, for the supply of hot watershower, you can use hot-water circuit of the boiler heating system in all housing.
