If the capacity is large enough, the storage heater, like the gas heater and the multipoint heater, can provide hot water for use in two bathrooms at the same time, and the hot water supply also includes the washbasin. Unlike an instant heater, a hot shower can only provide one bathroom.
A Storage Heater is a household appliance used to store heat for later use. often used in cold climates to provide supplemental heating. The most common type of Storage Heater is the electric Storage Heater, which uses electricity to heat a storage chamber. Storage Heaters can also be fueled by natural gas, oil, or propane.
A water heater's storage tank is heated using two electric resistance devices situated at the bottom and top of the tank. Each element has its thermostat. In two-element tanks, the lower part helps recover from standby losses while the upper one heats water during peak hot water demand. A lower element is all that's needed in some resistance water heaters.

Broken heating coil
This typical problem occurs after lengthy usage of any electrical applicator. In such circumstances, we advise you to replace the entire unit, as it comes with a manufacturer's warranty of 12-24 months.

When a switch is broken, you will not receive adequate electricity to operate the storage water heater when the button is powered on. In this situation, we would propose replacing the faulty switch.

When the connection between the pipes that take water from the inlet pipe and send it to the outlet pipe is broken, water will begin to seep. We suggest replacing the damaged seals to ensure no more water leaks.
