Water heaters solve the problem of interruptions in hot water. The equipment is presented in various modifications, including powerful floor-standing units with tanks.
Benefits of underfloor water heaters
Unlike instantaneous water heaters, floor-standing boilers have larger dimensions due to the presence of a tank, but the equipment can easily provide hot water to a large number of consumers (for example, this is a good option for a family of 4-5 people). The average volume of the tank is 200 liters.
There is a wide range of equipment depending on the type of power, so boilers run on electricity or gas. As an example, consider the features of a particular model.
Characteristics of the gas boiler Vaillant atmoSTOR VGH 220/5 XZU:

Some boilers are equipped with an automation system, with the help of which different operating modes of the equipment are set, including the setting of economical energy consumption.
All water heaters provide for the presence of anti-corrosion protection of the tank; for this purpose, its inner surface has a special coating. The container is insulated to maintain the temperature of the water. A heat exchanger is installed inside the tank, in which direct heating is carried out.
The cost of gas floor boilers is higher than electric counterparts. But during operation, the difference pays off due to the availability of gas. Water heaters are installed in any heating network, the installation of units takes a little time, but if possible, it should be trusted to specialists.
