Things to be noted when buy gas heater
Gas heaters provide hot water so instantly so you can use it whenever you need it. To choose the most suitable Bajaj water heater for your home you will have to take into account various factors such as the fuel you use at home ( natural gas or butane ), your domestic hot water consumption to determine its production capacity or the type of ignition.
What heater do I need?
Before deciding which Usha water heater is the most suitable for you, you must take into account various factors and answer the following questions:
- What type of fuel do you use in my house? Natural gas or butane gas?
First, the gas installation is necessary to install a heater of these characteristics. If we do not have this type of installation we must necessarily purchase a thermos or electric accumulator.
In the second place we have to know if our supply is of natural gas or butane to know what type of heater we need. However, most models are available for both fuel classes.
- Do I have a solar thermal system?
If we have a system of solar panels at home for the supply of sanitary hot water we have to check that the heater is suitable for solar thermal installations. Since January 2007, construction companies are obliged to install solar panels on new works.
- How much hot water do I need?
The heaters are capable of producing between 5 and 20 liters of hot water per minute, depending on the model. Given the choice of an efficient heater we must take into account that the flow of a tap is about 9 liters / minute. This factor is key to guarantee an adequate supply to our needs
- Where will I place it?
The place where we are going to install the heater is very important to choose, for example, the type of evacuation. As we have seen previously, the natural draft requires a well-ventilated place while the forced draft can be placed in a smaller and less ventilated place.
- Other considerations
To opt for one or the other model you also have to take into account your preferences in the benefits: energy saving, security, comfort…
The heaters may include, depending on the model, additional features to improve the safety of the equipment.
– Temperature thermostat: This device allows the user to regulate the temperature of the hot water. A feature that also improves safety because it prevents the water from reaching very high temperatures.
– Flameless sensors: This control protects the unit against unexpected extinguishes of the flame. In the event of a shutdown occurring during the use of the equipment, the electromagnetic valve cuts off the gas supply and then the automatic ignition button is activated to re-ignite the heating flame.
– Gas failure sensor: If a gas cut occurs, close the valve .
– Air pressure switch: When detecting lack of ventilation and obstruction in the gas evacuation, it cuts off the gas supply and the heater switches off automatically.
