Get hot water whenever you want it with the help of a geyser. Installed in the kitchen or the bathroom, it can make bath time something to look forward to, and washing utensils seem like less of a chore.This buying guide will acquaint you with the following:
Geysers come in several types to cater to different needs. Learn what they are and why making the right choice matters.
A storage geyser is a good choice if water needs to be heated as well as stored for use at a later time.
Storage Geyser Specifications:
Instant or tankless geysers are what one can go for if hot water is needed instantly and there's no requirement to store it.
Instant Geyser Specifications:
If you're looking for a geyser that heats water quickly and is not expensive to run in the long term, a gas geyser is what can be considered.
Gas Geyser Specifications:
Inexpensive and easy to replace, an immersion rod is ideal if you aren't looking to heat large quantities of water at a time, and don't require instant hot water either.
Immersion Rod Specifications:
Bar, a unit to gauge pressure, is an indicator of what geyser can safely be used for what type of building.
The table below shows the limit of bar pressure in accordance to the height of a building:
|Upto 8th floor||5 bar|
|8th floor and above||8 bar|
However, since gauge pressure changes depending on what a geyser tank is made of - mild steel, copper, stainless steel or glass-lined mild steel - it's important to always compare different geysers and not solely rely on bar.
The following table shows a range of standby heat loss against different capacities:
|Capacity||Standby Heat Loss Range (Unit/Day)|
|More than 50 ltrs||0.95|
