Buyer’s Guide:

Buying a geyser or water heater is not a piece of cake. There are many features and functions that you will have to cross-check the appliances with, to not get stuck with the wrong product. From which capacity & type of geyser you should choose, to the safety measures you must take while operating the product. It’s all here!

Type of Geysers:

Geysers come in three different categories based upon their source of energy, namely—electric, gas, solar. While you can make the distinction of storage in two types of primary Geysers known as storage water heaters & instant or tankless geysers. We have mentioned details concerning all of these different types for your reference below!

Storage Water Heaters:

Storage geysers come with water tanks to help you store the heated water for a certain period. Whenever you turn on the water heater, a certain amount of water will get heated and stored in the tank based on your water capacity. The temperature of this stored water will retain its heat with the help of the thermostat.

Most of the geysers that are found on the Indian market today come with two kinds of water tanks—copper and stainless steel. While the copper tanks are a little heavy on the pocket, the steel ones can come off a little cheaper. Both of these tanks last for a considerable amount of time.

You can choose from multiple types of models according to your requirement. For instance, if you have a small family, a 15-litre or 20-litre capacity should suffice you. While a large family around 25 to 35-litre capacity is recommended.

Electric Water Heaters:

As you can guess from the name, this type of geyser uses electricity for supplying hot water. Electric water heaters work simply—they convert the electric energy into heat with the help of heating elements to elevate the temperature of the water. You can find some electric water heaters that come with user-friendly features like time delay, automation, and required temperature.

These heaters are ideal for people who have found their abode in apartments or rented houses. If you compare it to gas water heaters, this type can offer you a higher temperature in water.

Gas Water Heaters:

You may know LPG or Liquid Petroleum Gas that is used in your kitchen cylinders, but this natural gas has found its way in the water heaters for quite some time. The reason why some people prefer gas water heaters as compared to electric ones is that they can heat the water faster than the latter. However, you will have to install an LPG gas cylinder (the same one found in your kitchen) along with the geyser machine so it gets ample gas supply.

Most of the gas water heaters that you will come across on the market will be either instant or tankless. When you place it in the bathroom, you need to make sure that the cylinder has been installed outside of the bathroom for safety purposes. Ventilation is important as the cylinder will emit a lot of carbon monoxide fumes. If you compare the electric water heaters to the gas heaters, the operating and maintenance costs of the latter are far cheaper.

Solar Geysers:

If you live in independent duplexes or houses, then a solar geyser is possibly the best choice to opt for. It has a similar working pattern as all solar-powered appliances do, it captures the heat from the sun rays through the solar panels mounted on your rooftop. This energy from the sun rays is then converted into heat and later transferred to the inner water tank.

With this option, you’re spending money on neither electricity nor gas for your daily supply of hot water. Although when you set the solar panel system, it will be a little heavy on your pocket, it is an investment that will save you a lot of money. They aren’t ideal for people living in apartments.

Instant or Tankless Geysers

Unlike storage geysers, the instant geysers do not come with a separate tank capacity to store heated water. However, they are a wonderful option when you want to have a quick shower with an instant supply of hot water whenever you need it. Once you turn off the device, the hot water will stop coming in immediately.

 

Safety Tips For Using Geyser

Here are some of the most important safety measures you need to take when operating a geyser in your house.

  • You should make sure that children stay away from the geyser, otherwise, there is a chance they will burn their hands with hot water
  • Make sure to not use other electrical devices in your bathing area when you’re using a geyser.
  • To avoid unnecessary electricity consumption, make sure to flush out all the sediment build-up
  • Don’t keep the geyser on for a long time
  • Set the temperature from 60 to 50 degrees C to help you save more energy. If you run it on a high temperature for a long time will take up a lot of power
  • If you leave unused water inside the tank, your water heater will keep on wasting electricity. Make sure to switch off the geyser whenever you’re done
  • Be careful when you use the geyser at a high temperature as if the water gets too hot it can burn your skin

 

How to Choose the Best Geyser in India?

Here are some of the factors you can pay attention to while choosing a suitable geyser for your house! Some of these factors can vary within different individuals, while others are a necessity for everyone!

Size or Capacity

The size and capacity of the geyser should depend on the number of people in your family, as well as the purpose of the geyser. Let’s say if you have a large family, you might want to bring home a geyser that will offer you a higher capacity and quick hot water supply. While, if you have a family of below four members, you might want to get yourself a compact and small-sized geyser.

Ratings

All of the geysers or water heaters sold in India have been marked with a BEE star rating by the Government of India. This rating ranges from one to five, with five being the most energy-efficient and durable. You must consider this rating before purchasing your final pick, as to save money on electricity bills on a longer run. Most of the geysers we have mentioned on our list have been awarded a 5-star rating.

Anti-Corrosive & Anti-Scale Lining

When you’re getting yourself a geyser, always make sure to check whether the water tank has been lined with an anti-scale or anti-corrosive lining. However, before that, you should check what kind of water supply you are receiving in your pipelines. In cases where the water you’re receiving is in extremely bad shape with a high TDS, you should only opt for water tanks lined with superior glass.

Auto-Off Feature

You might notice a feature called automatic shut off, in many of the modern water tank heaters. This feature can help you turn off the machine automatically in case you forget to manually turn it off. This feature makes sure your machine does not necessarily consume a lot of water, and also helps maintain stable water temperature in the water tank.

Durability and Maintenance

The geyser’s ability to function and withstand unpleasant conditions depends on its durability. The durability of the geyser will make sure that it lasts for a long time and requires as little repairs as possible. While the maintenance of the geysers depends on the type of the geyser and the frequency of your use. It is good practice to clean the tank of the product at least once in a week to keep rusting at bay.

Warranty

Similar to any other kitchen or household appliance, warranties are an important aspect! You should check the warranty on your water heater before purchase. Geysers can come with a warranty period of 2 to 5 years, depending on the brand and type of appliance. In case the

the product causes problems during the warranty period, you can request for a free replacement or repair done on it.

 

FAQs about Geyser in India

How to know that the water heater needs to be replaced?

The main factor for any replacement should first be the age of the appliance. Other than that, if your appliance is starting to show symptoms like noisy operations or calcium deposits, then you can consider changing your water heater. It is a thumb rule to replace geysers every 10 years, but that also depends on the quality of your machine, and your usage.

How to know the perfect capacity of a water heater required?

The perfect capacity of a water heater depends on the size of your family, and the number of people who are going to use the same geyser. You might want to opt for a standard 15 to 20-liter capacity storage for a small family or a group of bachelors. While for a large family, it would be ideal to go for at least 30-liters to be on a safer side.

How long does the water heater last?

The lifespan of your appliance is going to depend on two main things—the quality of the water supply and the quality of the geyser itself. On average, a water heater lasts for about 10 to 12 years, but you can plus or minus the years in its life depending on how to maintain and use the product.
