Types Of Water Heaters

We gave the list of top 10 best water heaters in India 2020 and it is also important for you to know all about water heaters. So that you can make a choice wisely and buy accordingly. There are different types of water heaters as well. But we mentioned only Conventional Storage Tank Water Heater in our list which is generally use in our homes. Here is all types of water heaters present in a market.

1. Conventional Storage Tank Water Heater

This is a water heater which is the most used by the ordinary household in India. This type of water heater which has the tank to store water and tank have different capacities and it varies from 3L-25 L according to the usage. This is an insulated storage tank so that the warm water inside the tank remains warm for a long period of time without losing the heat inside the tank. If a household needs 15,25 L warm water in a day and have 3,5 or 10 L tank capacity then obviously it will not work effectively and user have to wait for lot more time for another batch of hot water.

2. Solar Water Heaters

Solar water heaters are one of the smartest water heaters in all types because it takes energy directly from the sun and converts that power into the water heating process. This type of water heater is energy-efficient and they mainly rely on the solar panel for the power source. This water heaters have mainly a capacity of 100-300 L and generally for industrial use. A good solar water heater cost around 40,000 – 70,000 Rs. though it is a one-time investment and can be recovered in electricity bills. But they have a larger capacity storage tank and requires more area on your roof for installation the heater as well.

3.Tank Less water Heaters

The tankless water heater is a water heater without a tank and can endlessly supply hot water to your home. It has superheated coils that fill with water and heat water in a splash whenever you need it. These types of water heaters are generally used in the household who rely on natural gas to power the water heater or they have more power capacity in their house because it requires natural gas or more electrical power to heat than other water heaters.

4. Instant Water Heaters

The Instant Water heaters are the fastest water heaters and they can provide hot water in minutes than any other water heaters. They consume more electricity and require high power to heat the water fast and have 1-3 L of storage tank capacity. It can be used for kitchen and washing where you require less water. If you live in the northern part of India or in colder regions then you should not use instant water heaters in the bathroom because it will take more power to heat the water and can take more time to heat the water for bathing. So this is a good option only when you need 1-3 L of hot water. If you require more, then you should go for Conventional Storage Tank Water Heaters.

Buying Guide For The Best Water Heater/ Geyser

Before you buy a new water heater you should consider these major points to have the best water heater for you.

1. Installation Procedure

Installation of a new water heater can be stressful if it does not have a free installation facility at your doorstep. You should always look for free or paid installation before considering buying any geyser. If the free installation is there then it is highly recommended but in some areas or locality, many brands can only offer paid installation, then, in that case, you can opt for that as well. Because it needs a technician to install the geyser in the desired location. And we highly recommend using the company’s assigned technician for no problem in the installation.

2. Ideal Capacity Of A Tank

Ideal water heater tank capacity is very much essential and can save plenty of resources in the coming years after you purchase the heater and can work efficiently whenever needed. Most of the consumers do not think about the capacity and ignore the capacity while buying the water heater.

This is the ideal capacity according to your number of family members and usage type. If you have more than 6 members than we recommend to use a solar water heater that will give you more capacity and will cost you no money in electricity bills.

3. Warranty

No matter which geyser you choose but if it doesn’t a have long period of warranty then it is surely not worth it. Longer the warranty more durable the product is , In case of water heater you are going to use it for more than 5 years. Hence the warranty should have more than 5 years of heating element and product or body should be minimum 2 years. So that you don’t have to worry if any problem occurs within the time frame.
