Energy-saving water heating at home
The instantaneous water heater is one of the most comfortable devices for preparing hot water. The heaters only consume electricity when the water flows. This solution makes them extremely energy-efficient (the devices have the ‘A’ energy class). Additionally, flow heaters allow for continuous hot water consumption.

Hot water – immediately and without restrictions
Flow-through water heaters are selected according to the number and type of water consumption points. Due to their small size, they can be installed close to the water intake point.

Appropriate selection and the right place of installation ensure lower water consumption and reduce heat loss.
Unlimited hot water intake gives instantaneous water heaters a definite advantage over storage water heaters. As long as you have a suitable electrical installation, there is nothing to prevent you from installing the device! Another option is to choose a storage water heater.
How do you choose an instantaneous water heater?
Flow-through water heaters are selected according to the number and type of water consumption points. At home, hot water is most often needed in the bathroom and in the kitchen. If the bathroom has a shower with a standard handset, it is usually enough to use a device with a power of 12-15kW. A heater with more power will be needed if you have a rain shower system. Then the water heating device will have to be more powerful and more efficient. In this case, a heater with a capacity of 24 to 27kW should be sufficient. A heater with a minimum power of 18kW should be used for the bathtub.
