Heating water in a tiny house

When you start thinking seriously about living in a tiny house, the first thing you think about is probably some kind of ideal image.

It’s easy to just focus on the fun side of building a tiny house: the design, how you can design the space to make the best use of every nook and cranny and how you can live as innovative and sustainable as possible.

Of course, the practical side of tiny house living must also be dealt with: your house must be livable. One of the most important necessities in your tiny house is of course access to clean water.

What do you need to think about first when you want to live in a tiny house?

First and foremost it is important that you determine your basic necessities for your tiny house. So there are the questions: is the tiny house constantly inhabited? How much comfort do you want in terms of water supplies? Is your personal focus on living as sustainably as possible or do you want to maintain a healthy balance between personal comfort and sustainability?

Of course you also need to keep in mind budget, space for installed appliances and facilities and the size of the daily demand for hot water in a tiny house. What needs to be arranged first is water supply. 


Connecting to the water network

The most obvious option, of course, is to simply connect your house to the pipeline network. Then you know for sure that you will have clean water (so you don’t need a water purification system yourself) and you will never be short of water.
