Comparison of various brands of Water Heaters/Geysers on BEE star rating in India

By on June 25, 2014

In our series on comparison of various brands of appliances on BEE star rating, we would like to add water heaters/geysers today. As we discussed in our previous posts on refrigerators and air conditioners (link and link), we are trying to do Olympic style ranking of various brands on BEE Star Ratings. To do so we have gathered data for various brands and their models, with their star ratings and have ranked various brands based on the same. It is our hope that this will induce some healthy competition amongst the brands and that will help improve the overall energy efficiency in the water heaters.

Water Heaters

To achieve at this ranking, we collected the data from the BEE website www.beeindia.in. The data was collected for all types of storage water heaters that have been registered with BEE for star rating. It is heartening to know that most registered models with BEE are 4 and 5 star rated. But because BEE star rating is optional for water heaters not all water heaters available in the market are rated. As we have already discussed in our previous articles on water heaters, it is always better to buy a branded water heater because brands comply with BIS standards and are safe to use. So we hope that the list below will help you choose your brand. The list of various water heaters and their star ratings is available at the link in the end of this article.

So here are the rankings:

Please note that this ranking is just based on the number of models by a brand in a star rating. This does not represent comparison of models. Individual model of a particular brand may be better than the best brand on this list, but that information is not available in this list. We do plan to provide that information as well in our future evaluations. We also plan to keep updating this data every month so that we provide the latest statistics. So keep reading Bijli Bachao.

    Hi abhi.. Can guide me for 15 litter capacity ……

  2. Vinay. says:

    Hi, I want to buy a 25 Liter geyser in Bangalore location for my apartment. Please suggest me which one is the best among Venus(Magma or Mega Plus), Bajaj(Majesty or Shakthi) and Racold(Eterno 2 or Altro).

    • Abhishek Jain says:

      Bajaj Majesty, Racold Eterno 2 and Altero look good to me. Reason: All are BEE 5 star rated and have adjustable thermostat that can help you reduce heating temperature and thus help save electricity. Racold models also have hard water and corrosion protection. On the whole Racold Altro model looks feature rich and the best.

      • Vinay says:

        Thanks you very much Abhishek. One more clarification, how about AO Smith or AO Smith-Jaquar with compare to Racold….?

        • Abhishek Jain says:

          Both are american brands and pretty well known and good brands. Racold has been in market for longer and has larger market share.

  3. Sujit says:

    mention this on top why at the bottom

  7. jyothish says:

    no isi ratings and bee only tells us the standing loss of a water heater looks like this is all copied from beeindia.in

    • Abhishek Jain says:

      Hi,

      That is right. Currently this information is based on data from BEE and BEE ratings do incorporate standards from BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards), so it is not just about standing losses. And the data is from BEE and we have added our analysis on top of BEE data.

      Regards,
      Abhishek
