The weather may be scorching hot, but that doesn’t mean we’d be quick to welcome a cold shower. Hot water is an essential part of our daily lives, right up there in an untouchable list of comforts like Wi-Fi, food and water. And these days, showers are right at the top of the list.

Elevate your shower experience

In scorching times like these, we find ourselves taking more frequent showers at home. As such, you are more likely to notice little inadequacies with your existing home water heater; perhaps it’s slow to heat up, or maybe the water isn’t hot enough when more than one shower in the house is used at a time. In this case, a gas water heater might be the best water heating life hack for you. Life by City Energy’s innovative home solutions effortlessly deliver the best instant hot water experience without incurring a higher utility bill.

And if you want to transform your daily shower into a luxurious experience, consider adding a rain showerhead to your home. Gas water heaters provide the perfect solution for this upgrade, offering consistent and powerful hot water to support the larger showerhead needed for a rain shower. Imagine stepping into a rain shower that delivers a gentle yet invigorating flow of hot water, enveloping you in warmth and comfort.

Why choose a gas water heater in Singapore?

Nothing beats a gas water heater’s irresistible combination of rapid heating, affordability, and convenience. Gas water heaters can heat water quickly and be installed outdoors at the air conditioning ledge. Perfect for renovations and new apartments, these heaters free up valuable bathroom space — say goodbye to that bulky electric storage heater and the clutter of electric water heaters on your walls. They are also much easier to service than heaters concealed in false ceilings, which can be troublesome if they leak. For added peace of mind against leakages, all gas heaters here at City Energy meet the EN26 standard by TUV SUB PSB Singapore.

Say goodbye to a surprise cold shower

Gas heaters have another trick up their sleeve: no more nasty cold shocks when someone else in the house starts their shower. For most HDB flats and condominiums, one gas water heater is sufficient to provide a consistent flow of hot water to every bathroom simultaneously, so everyone can enjoy hot showers anytime.

Cost savings and environmental benefits

We have more good news if you want to upgrade your water heater. In comparison to an electric storage heater, a household can save $1,200 by using a gas water heater, according to a study by NEA. A study conducted by National University of Singapore Professor Dr Lee Siew Eang uncovered significant environmental benefits associated with gas water heaters, finding that they save 80% in carbon emissions compared to electric storage water heaters. That is another incentive to upgrade: you can do your part to reduce your carbon footprint.

The advantages of smart gas water heaters

Like all modern home appliances, smart versions of gas water heaters exist. Beyond its core function of producing hot water, modern smart gas water heaters have additional features to improve users’ daily experience. Not only do they come with smart features that let you control and monitor their use more effectively, but they can also be automated to fit with your daily routines.

Imagine stepping into a steaming hot shower the moment you walk through the door. Skip the wait for hot water; with a smart gas water heater, you can remotely preheat your water with the iAppliances app for instant comfort when you get home. You can even remotely heat the water to your preferred temperature and even control the volume of water you intend to heat for the bath. With all smart devices, you can also receive helpful notifications for events like gas usage analytics and summaries to help you identify ways to optimise usage.

If you are worried about wasting water or energy, the app can provide you with usage details and trends so you can take action whenever necessary.

Energise your daily showers with Life by City Energy

Gas water heaters will elevate your daily showers thanks to all their modern tech. Be it the therapeutic pattering from a rain shower or the assurance of consistently hot water, a gas water heater offers the ultimate luxurious bathing experience.

You’ve invested in the excitement of renovating a brand-new apartment, eager for the fresh start a beautiful home offers. Why not elevate that experience and embrace the future of modern living with a smart home that simplifies your life? Enjoy the convenience of a smart gas water heater for instant hot showers, an efficient gas dryer for laundry, smart gas hobs and smart hoods that make cooking more fuss-free, along with other innovative solutions that prioritise comfort, energy efficiency, and peace of mind.

As a leader in lower-carbon energy solutions, Life by City Energy believes in offering smart choices for the home. Smart energy choices and the shrewd choice of a connected home ecosystem can make home living more pleasant. We even provide free installation so that you don’t have to spend time setting up your smart home.

All the benefits without the hassle? Here’s how.

Your smarter home, simplified

Setting up smart homes should be easy, and Life by City Energy understands this. It offers integrated solutions, saving you hours of research in determining compatibility between devices and smart home platforms. This means that every device you buy from the store is easy to set up, and everything works together seamlessly. You control all devices through the user-friendly iAppliances app, which integrates easily with Google Home or Alexa to offer more autonomous flexibility and voice control options.

We also believe you should not feel pressured to turn every inch and corner of your house into a Wi-Fi-enabled feature. At Life by City Energy, we have a wide range of solutions that you can purchase individually based on your current needs. New devices can be seamlessly integrated into your home network, so you don’t have to worry about getting everything perfect right away. Our brand ambassadors at the experiential retail store are always on hand to help you plan your smart home upgrades.

Smart water heaters and gas hobs for an efficient Singapore home

The key to a truly smart home is a seamless experience. And one area of the home where this is most welcome is the kitchen.

Our Küche and Möwe smart home collections offer Smart Hobs and Smart Hoods that work in tandem to deliver a better cooking experience. Ignite the hob, and the hood automatically activates, adjusting to your pre-programmed airflow setting while the lighting comes on to illuminate the cooking area. As a safety precaution, you can install smart sensors to detect smoke or gas, which will then shut the devices down to prevent accidents if you become preoccupied and leave your cooking unattended. And that’s not even the best part. Direct heat cooking with gas allows you to cook your best, enabling cooking techniques such as wok hei and charring; you also get to enjoy the conveniences that smart devices offer.

Likewise, a smart gas water heater from our store will enhance your bathing experience and lower carbon emissions. A study conducted by National University of Singapore Professor Dr Lee Siew Eang uncovered significant environmental benefits associated with gas water heaters, finding that they save 80% in carbon emissions compared to an electric storage heater.

Beyond their environmental benefits, you can enjoy a shower tailored to your preferences. Use the app to set your ideal heater temperature precisely, then relax and indulge in a calming atmosphere created by smart lighting and gentle music.

Because at the end of the day, the whole point of a smart home is about improving your quality of life in the most intelligent way possible.

Effortless solutions with gas dryers and more

And sometimes, it’s not about buying high-tech devices with the most features; it’s about what makes a difference in your life. According to a study by Tokyo Gas, a gas clothes dryer takes approximately 1/3 of the drying time of an electric clothes dryer. This means that rain or shine, you need not worry about not getting your laundry done if you have a gas dryer like the Rinnai RDT-62-SG-W, for example. Given how unpredictable the weather in Singapore is, we don’t always have the luxury of hanging out our clothes to dry. And when the haze hits, it’s a big headache to dry your clothes and keep them free from pollutants.

It doesn’t take a lot to make things effortless. Even the simple act of installing smart plugs can make that much of a difference in your life. If you forget to turn off an appliance, you can simply turn it off remotely from your app or program it so that everything turns off when you leave the vicinity of your Wi-Fi. It can be that simple.

Experience the difference and learn more at the Life by City Energy experiential retail store, a one-stop shop for gas-powered appliances and smart home ecosystems. Let us take the guesswork out of your dream smart home experience by meeting your needs, minus the unnecessary effort.
