The best Thermex storage water heaters
Accumulative water heaters Termeks allow you to stock up on warm water in large quantities and then only maintain its temperature, saving energy. They are convenient for connecting to standard wiring in an apartment or a private house, since the power of most of them is like an iron or an electric kettle. But in terms of dimensions, boilers take up a lot of space and with a tank filled with cold water, you will have to wait from 60 to 300 minutes until the volume heats up. Here is a ranking of the top 5 models in this category.
Thermex Round Plus IR 300V
The first place in the ranking among storage water heaters is occupied by the giant IR 300V model. The boiler has a capacity of 300 liters and retains heat for a long time thanks to a thick layer of polyurethane foam. A household appliance consumes 6000 W / h, so you should not connect it to a regular outlet, but you need to draw a separate line with a machine. The boiler will heat up the full volume in 3.2 hours, since it must be turned on in advance. Due to the weight of 354 kg, only vertical floor installation is possible – this model will not work for small bathrooms. The owners in the reviews like that two heating elements work at once inside, as well as a convenient upper connection for communications.
We placed the Termex water heater in the first place in the rating for several reasons. The tank is made of thick stainless steel, with a 2 mm section, which provides long-term protection against corrosion and leaks. To reduce the effect of liquid on the metal, an anode is provided with a larger size than the competition. Thermex manufacturer provides a 7-year tank warranty.
- capacious tank for 300 liters – enough for a family of 6-8 people;
- self-cleaning function from scale;
- overheat protection;
- a thick layer of polyurethane foam insulation that retains heat.
- wait a long time for heating after switching on (200 minutes);
- only floor-standing installation due to the weight of the full water heater 354 kg;
- you need to allocate enough space for dimensions of 630x630x1215 mm;
- requires a separate power line with a capacity of 6 kW.
Thermex Champion Floor ER 200V
The second place in the rating was taken by a storage water heater from Termeks named 'Champion'. This image of a household appliance is confirmed by the presence of a heating element with a power of 6 kW, which heats a volume of liquid 200 liters to a temperature of 70 degrees in 120 minutes. The boiler is suitable for several sampling points in a large house or apartment where 4-5 people live. The owners in the reviews share that it is convenient to adjust the heating speed and temperature in it thanks to three toggle switches that set the power limitation. Protection functions include a safety valve that is triggered when the pressure reaches 6 bar and a relay that cuts off the power supply in case of overheating.
Our experts liked the Termeks storage water heater for its versatility in connecting to the network – this can be done both to 220 V and 380 V. In the second case, during the operation of the heater, you can turn on other household equipment (electric kettle, iron, washing machine, hairdryer) at the same time. The walls of the tank are also covered with glass ceramics, so the seams here are protected from corrosion.
- no drilling required during installation – installed on its own legs;
- the container is reliably protected from corrosion;
- intuitive control with a choice of power;
- heating temperature limiter and protection against excessive temperature rise.
- 1 year warranty;
- only floor standing allowed;
- takes place 560x1216x672 mm;
- you need a good base of the floor of a private house – weight with water is 256 kg.
Thermex Flat Plus Pro IF 50V (pro)
The third place in the rating was taken by the Termeks boiler with two heating elements, with a capacity of 2 kW. It is allowed to be plugged into a regular outlet. The water heater is electronically controlled, which allows you to precisely maintain the set temperature. Owners in reviews love the black display with bright blue numbers and the rubber-coated touch sensitive buttons. The device is installed vertically on the wall, since empty weighs 12 kg, and filled – 62 kg. The manufacturer Termeks has endowed the model with a self-diagnosis function, but there are only three codes in the settings. The household appliance is protected from working with an empty tank, there is a safety valve and frost prevention.
In our opinion, the water heater deserves a place in the rating because of the RCD, which protects the user from electric shock during a short circuit. Voltage will never enter the water. Inside, the Thermex boiler is equipped with a separating baffle, which accelerates the heating of the liquid – 50 liters will be brought to a temperature of 45 degrees in 85 minutes.
- 7 years warranty;
- two copper heating elements;
- display and touch buttons;
- thermometer showing the exact number of degrees;
- electronic control.
- slightly uneven molding of the plastic case;
- inside the hot pipe does not have a rigid attachment and beats against the tank;
- there is no screw on the cover with the electric unit (only a latch, although there is a hole for it);
- after turning off the light, the device has to be started manually.
Thermex Ultra Slim IU 30
The fourth place in the rating was awarded to the Termex storage model with a capacity of 2 kW and a tank volume of 30 liters. Inside, corrosion protection is provided in the form of a magnesium anode. The temperature is set mechanically through two toggle switches and a rotary switch. The water heater is mounted on the wall in a vertical way. Thermex has equipped the household appliance with an RCD and a non-return valve, as well as dry start protection. The inner tank is made of stainless steel and can withstand pressures up to 7 bar. The heating elements are made of copper, so they transfer heat to water faster.
We have included the product in the rating because of its particularly narrow dimensions 270x800x285 mm, which fully justifies the name Ultra Slim. According to the owners, the Termeks water heater fits easily into the niche of the bathroom, through which the pipes pass, and even 1 cm of stock remains. This allows you to compactly arrange it and not take up useful space in a small room.
- rubber covers with mechanical buttons protect from water drops;
- power indicator;
- accelerated heating function;
- dry start protection;
- stainless steel tank.
- inconvenient temperature regulator from below, which can only be felt, but not seen;
- 1 year warranty;
- short power cord;
- huge anchors included – you will have to buy a smaller one;
- water is constantly leaking from the drain pipe – you need a drain supply to the sewer.
Thermex Hit H15-O
The fifth place in the rating is taken by Termeks, with a capacity of 15 liters. Heating is provided by one heating element with a power of 1500 W. The steel walls of the tank are covered with glass ceramics, so there are no leaks at the water heater. The boiler is mounted on the wall, for example, installation even in the metal profile of plasterboard partitions, since the weight of the empty model is 8 kg, and the full model is 23 kg. Liquid heating is possible up to 75 degrees. Of the protective functions – overheating blocking and excess pressure relief. Users like this storage water heater because it keeps heat for almost a day and remains always cold outside.
Our experts have included the product in the rating due to the price of the water heater. Considering the build quality, it is difficult to find a cheaper boiler. The model differs in the speed of work – Termex is able to heat 15 liters in 20 minutes. But due to the small volume, we recommend the unit for office toilets (wash hands with warm water) or summer cottages (express bathing for one person, washing dishes).
- unusual design;
- compact dimensions 375x395x345 mm;
- economical power consumption due to the power of 1.5 kW;
- container with walls coated with glass ceramics;
- the outside is always cold.
- the supply of warm water is quickly consumed;
- only 1 heating element;
- it is difficult to find spare parts for repair;
- weak light from the indicator – in sunny weather it is not visible whether the device is turned on or not.
The best instantaneous Thermex water heaters
The Termeks flow models heat the flow only at the moment of opening the tap There are pressure and non-pressure types of devices. Temperature transfer occurs at the moment the liquid flows through the spiral or U-shaped heating element. The advantages of the devices are their compact size and price, but they are more designed for periodic rather than permanent use, for example, with a seasonal shutdown of hot water supply.
Thermex Topflow 8000
In the first place in this rating category, we put Termex with a power of 8 kW, which is designed for several points of extraction and can hold the pressure of the water supply network at 6 bar without an additional tap at the inlet. The water heater is equipped with 12 steps of regulation, a round display and four buttons for entering settings. The flow-through device is mounted on the wall and occupies 205x360x125 mm. The heating indicator lights up during operation. If there is no water in the system, the equipment will not turn on. Inside, heating is carried out through a spiral stainless steel heating element, which is better protected from plaque than copper. The body of the water heater protects the electrical parts from splashing, so it can be installed directly in the shower enclosure.
We put this Termex model in the rating of the best, since the electronic control monitors the temperature of the outgoing flow regardless of changes in the incoming indicator. For example, if a liquid of 15 ° C flows through the pipes of a house for a long time, and then a more cooled 5 ° C (from pipes underground) flows, but the output will be stable 37 ° C.
- interesting design of the control panel;
- bright display;
- electronic control;
- protection against work without water;
- 2 year warranty.
- high power consumption during the period of use;
- needs a separate line with an automatic machine;
- the set of water is weaker than the tap.
Thermex Stream 500
The second place in the rating in the category of instantaneous water heaters was taken by the 5 kW model. The device has two toggle switches that allow you to adjust the power in steps of 2, 3 or 5 kW at once. Thermex produces the model in two case versions – white with a black insert and gray with a black insert. Buyers like this in reviews, as it helps to better match the device to the interior of the bathroom or kitchen. You can see that Thermex is now working by the power-on indicator. It is easy to place household appliances above the sink due to the dimensions of 16x26x9.5 cm. But the water heater belongs to the non-pressure type and cannot be left under pressure.
Our experts liked the product as a ready-made kit, including a shower head and a hose. This provides everything you need to take a shower during periods when the central hot water supply is turned off. The second advantage of the Termeks water heater is its price, the most affordable in the category, for which the device is included in the rating of the best. The body is attached to two self-tapping screws, so the equipment can be easily removed as unnecessary until the next period.
- very compact dimensions 160x260x95 mm;
- easy connection with a hose from a standard bathroom mixer (1/2 thread);
- two color options for the case for the interior;
- three power levels.
- non-pressure water heater – must not be left under pressure;
- a separate wire for power supply and a machine are required;
- grounding required;
- uninformative instruction.
