Types of boilers
There are two types of boilers: gas boiler and electric boiler.
- Gas boiler is a hot water generator, in which gas is used as a heater. The power of gas boiler is 5-6 kilo-watt. The gas boiler uses gas as fuel, which is much cheaper than electricity. The advantage of the gas boiler is the ability of water heating due to its high power. Disadvantage of the gas boiler is a low ergonomics and high cost. It is necessary to lay gas pipe for the installation of gas boiler, as well as to provide a good ventilation and make a kitchen hood. It is necessary to observe the safety procedures during the operation of gas appliances.
- Electric boiler in comparison of gas boiler is less powerful. Its power is from 1,5 to 3 kilo-watt, but it is cheaper and has simple installation.

- Titanium covering;
Inner covering of the boiler performs the protection function from corrosion. The most popular covering is enamel and glass covering, as it is protected from corrosion. Hot-water generators with such covering are usually cheaper than others. The disadvantage of such boilers is micro cracks because of differential temperature. The guarantee of this type of boilers is about 1 year.
