ELECTRIC WATER HEATER
The ideal alternative to electric storage water heaters is how Ariston is describing its Aures Slim Multi instantaneous electric water heater. It requires no time at all to heat up, and water does not need to be stored. Instead, it is warmed up immediately when it comes into contact with a powerful heating element as it flows through the unit, resulting in unlimited availability on demand. As a result, the unit can be installed throughout a home or property close to point of use.
