Storage water heaters can be really helpful for a small family. Keeping hot water ready for use after one cycle of heating, it reduces the waiting time for baths and can even keep hot water ready for other needs like hand washing. A 15-litre water heater can be enough for a small family’s needs. Additionally, for a concealed placement, a horizontal design is a good choice. It can be placed above false ceilings with ease, without affecting the overall aesthetics of your washroom. To choose one, you should look for features like durability and safety. Here are some picks available on Amazon that sport promising features and specifications.


AO Smith HSE-HAS 15-Litre

The inner tank on the AO Smith HSE-HAS comes with a double coating of glass-lining, which increases the overall thickness of the glass and ensures better durability against corrosion. The heating element itself also comes with additional glass coating to prevent scale formation. While there is a temperature control knob, in case the temperature exceeds the preset levels for any reason, there’s also a thermal cutout feature which shuts off the power supply in such cases. Additionally, there’s also a safety valve that can release pressure by discharging water when pressure exceeds preset limits. This helps avoid damage to the heater.

American Micronic AMI-WHH-15LDx

To provide optimal insulation, the American Micronic 15-litre horizontal water heater comes with a 40mm PUF insulation with a density of 35kg/m3 between its 2mm steel tank and the exterior. This ensures that less heat escapes from the tank. The tank can also withstand water pressure of up to 8 bars, which ensures it can be used in high rise buildings. The official IPX4 rating also ensures resistance against splashing water in the washroom, as well as weather effects and humidity.  It also comes with multiple safety systems to protect against situations like dry heating or water pressure exceeding the acceptable limit.

Havells Monza Slim 15-Litre

The Havells Monza Slim comes with FeroglasTM Technology with Single Weld Line Design to assure resistance against wear and tear. This technology includes ultra-thick super cold rolled steel plates on the interiors of the water heater to improve durability. The Incoloy Glass Coated Heating Element is not only resistant to corrosion but also aims to improve resistance against oxidation and carbonisation. This can increase the overall lifetime of the Havells Monza Slim. Another optimising feature is the Whirl Flow technology, which avoids direct contact between cold and hot water in the heater’s operations. This promises to reduce heating time and increase hot water output by as much as 20%. 

Black + Decker 15L Storage Water Heater

The wide range of temperature control from 25 to 70 degrees on the Black + Decker 15L water heater promises to give you complete control of exactly how hot you need the water to be. Additionally, for those living in high rises, the heater can handle a water pressure of up to 8 bars which makes it safe to use in such homes. It also aims for safe usage through features like Preset Thermal Cut and a multi-function safety valve. While the former shuts off the heater after a certain temperature is reached, the latter acts as an anti-vacuum, non-return, drainage unit, which enables it to handle situations where the acceptable pressure levels are crossed.
