Things to consider when purchasing a geyser

No matter the weather, the pleasure, convenience, and bliss that comes with taking a hot shower in the morning cannot be beaten. That is why everyone needs a good geyser/heater, that will not let you down even after years of using it. Nothing would hurt more than after years of getting used to that hot shower in the morning, your geyser breaks down and you have to take a cold shower. So how do you ensure that the geyser you purchase will give you the service of a lifetime? Do you just go and buy the most expensive one out there? Below are the things you should put into consideration for you to buy a good, long lasting, and efficient geyser.

1. Type of Geyser

Basically, there are two types of geysers; the tank, and the tankless. The type that you purchase will be dependent on the number of people that the geyser is intended to serve, and the size of the household. The tank geyser will be most suitable for a smaller household say, an apartment for two. It uses relatively less energy than the tankless and is adaptable to various power circuits. Due to its constraints of a small storage space, it supplies less water compared to the tankless type, and is cheaper.

The tankless type on the hand is very good for supplying a constant stream of hot water. Despite it costing more than the tank type and having a much higher rate of energy consumption, the tankless has almost zero risk of damage or loss.

2. Energy efficiency

It is very crucial to consider the amount of energy that the geyser will consume while making a selection. To maintain your monthly electric bills, an energy efficient geyser should be what you are looking for. An ideal geyser should heat up the water appropriately, while saving power.

3. Auto off system

The auto off system in geysers is very important and it serves two purposes. First, it helps you save energy if you forgot to switch off your unit by doing it for you. Second, it prevents you and your family from accidental damages. Additionally, it prevents the geyser from burning out.

4. Looks matter

The geyser you are purchasing will be a part of your bathroom for a very long time, if not forever. That said, you should ensure that its color should match the inside of your washroom perfectly. The tankless may be suitable for small bathrooms because it is much more compact.

5. After sale services

This works for all electric appliances. Geysers are very sensitive appliances and need regular maintenance. It is advisable to buy a branded product to enjoy a trouble free repair service incase of damage.

6. Warranty

The warranty details are found on the manual. Before taking your new appliance home, you should go through the warranty details thoroughly and extensively to ensure that they are satisfactory.

Just like the television or the refrigerator, geysers have turned into one of the electrical appliances that constitute to a complete home. It doesn’t only help you enjoy your morning baths, it adds convenience to your day.
