Electricity Saving Tips For Homes And Offices

Top Ten Water Heaters/geysers in India by standing loss and size in 2017

By on August 10, 2017

Although electricity consumption of water heater or geyser depends on the amount of hot water used (as discussed in our link: Choose the right sized water heater/geyser for electricity saving), standing loss can be an important factor while deciding which water heater to buy. “Standing loss” or heat/energy loss of a water heater to the surrounding in 24 hours is an important factor used by BEE (Bureau of Energy Efficiency) to decide on star rating of a water heater. Using hot water optimally and choosing the right sized heater can minimize “Standing Loss”, but the most efficient water heater for a given size can assist in minimizing losses. Most sources on the Internet provide details on features and reviews. Electricity consumption hardly becomes the deciding factor. To help people make electricity consumption as deciding factor, we at Bijli Bachao have decided to put up a list of Top Ten Water Heaters/Geysers in India by standing loss and size.

The Basis of this ranking:

  • The basis of this ranking is the data from BEE (Bureau of Energy Efficiency). BEE data contains standing loss of a water heater and this information is self reported by the manufacturers. The data is calculated in test conditions.
  • We have taken the data on standing loss and categorized it by the capacity or volume of the water heater. The water heater with the least value of standing loss units/lts is given the highest ranking. Multiple models with the same value are given the same rank.
  • The list below contains only the top ten ranked water heaters. List of all BEE star rated water heaters are available on the useful links given below.
  • We regularly update this list as new models get added in the BEE list of water heaters.

Dear Abhishek,

Greetings . .

I am based out at Ranchi with family of 3. Water is from deep boring supplied via overhead tank from 3rd floor and I am based out at ground floor. We need a storage geyser with following requirements:-

1. Electricity bill should not shoot up.
2. I am the only person who uses water in morning and I take shower for bathing.
My family i.e. wife and child of 2 years uses water usually after I depart for work. But sooner or later one more baby will come and both of them will use it in morning as well for going to school.
3. Service should be good in case of fault.

Please suggest which water heater will be best based on above requirement .

Suharsh

hi Abhishek,

i am interested in buying an instant water geyser for a family of 4 and we reside exactly in Badlapur, Thane district. could you plz suggest which brand and model to go for?

6
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Havells, AO Smith, Racold, Bajaj are some of the top brands for water heaters. They do not have too many model choices, you can go for any one of these brands.

7

Abhishek,
Thanks for the reply.
We mostly will have bucket bath only. In that case would you say that having a 15lts model will lead to wastage of electricity? I see that the price of 15ltr model is almost same or less that's why I thought of going for higher quantity.

8
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Electricity is wasted if you leave hot water standing in the water heater. If you switch it on before use and switch it off while use or immediately after use, then you do not waste much. Usually bucket bath needs less, so if you go for 15 lts then most likely you will leave some hot water in the heater which will loose heat (or electricity used to heat it).

9

Hi,
Thanks for the excellent article.
Need your suggestion to choose the best model for a family of 4. Can we go with 10ltrs or 15 ltrs? which one is good between havells monza and morphy richards salvo model? Since havels 15 ltr model is not in your rank list little confused. which of these two brand is better in terms of service and warranty?

10
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Uday,

The choice will depend on usage. If you prefer bucket bath then go for 10 lts. For showerbath, 15 lts would be better. Both brands Havells and Morphy Richards are good. Havells being a large Indian brand will have larger service network. The list is sorted by efficiency and thus lists only the most efficient ones. But Havells Monza is also a BEE 5 star rated model and among top models. You can go for Havells Monza as well.

11

We have a family of 4 members, we are residing in coastal city with soft water available. some of us take bucket bath in the evening/night and some of us in the morning. Please guide us which geyser is suitable for us. Whether it is instant or storage one. Please also suggest the size & efficiency(i.e. time taking to get the water hot) of the geyser for us with the suitable brand and less power consumption. Ideally am looking for a brand which consumes less electricity.
Thanks.
Arun

You should go for a 10 lts storage water heater. It should take about 10 mins to heat the water by 35 degrees. You can look at these (any of these would be good):

HI Abhishek,
We have a family of 4 member's: 2 adults & 2 kids.i am looking for a durable Geyser,please tell which capacity should i buy: 15 lts or 25 lts or 35 lts.
Also please advice which is better,Usha mist or Venus Mega Plus or any other brand.
Thanks
Amit

14
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

The ideal size of any water heater is liked to peak single time usage. So if you prefer bucket bath, then 10 lts is good enough. If you prefer shower, then 15 lts is good enough. If you have rainshower then 25 lts is better. And in case you have a tub then 35 lts or 50 lts will be required. This is to ensure optimal energy and water consumption. Let me know the size and then I can give you some model recommendation.

15

Hi Abhishek,
Thanks for you reply we are looking ofr 25 lts of size,please suggest which 1 to buy Usha mist or Venus Mega Plus or any other better option.

16
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

I think Usha MISTY 25L (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2fui0l7 , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/hlZuUTuuuN ) would be better. You can also look at these:

Hi Abhishek,
I am looking to by 25 Liter electric geyser & have finalize two model of Havells which is Havells Monza EC 25 & Havells Puro Plus 25. Please suggest me which one will be the good option as in my area water is hard. Please also let me know what is the major difference between these two model ?

18
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Varun,

Both of them are good models. Puro Plus is a more feature rich model. It has two things that are not there in Monza:

1) Shock Safe Plug to prevent from electric shocks.
2) Multifunction Saftey Valve to protect it from internal and external pressure.

Rest all things are similar.

19

Dear Moderator, I am interested to purchase a 25 Litre, 5 star geyser (as electricity is quite costly) for high rise building (total floors 21, my bathroom at 4th) in Noida (water quality is really bad). Can you suggest me some good options? I am not a brand conscious freak but would avoid new comers in the block and stick to brands having good service network. Thanks a lot in advance for the help you are extending to confused people like me.

Help,
we have hard water in our Area.
I need an electric geyser for a family of hubby-wife-6 months baby.
Will 3 Litre instant geyser be enough for us?

22
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Siddappa,

Size of water heater depends on water usage for single biggest use. So if you plan to use it for bathing and you use bucket for bath, then 10 lts is sufficient. If you use shower then 15 lts is good. 3 lts one is usually not sufficient if you plan to use it for bathing.

23

Is there any geyser where i fit one and can be used in multiple taps to get hot water

24
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

It can be done with any geyser. You will have to get your piping altered accordingly.

25

Hi i want to know standing loss of v guard pebble metallica 25 liters tre model. Is this good model as compared to AOSmith series.

26
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Pravin,

V Guard Pebble 25 lts has standing loss of 0.562 kWh/day. It is a BEE 5 star rated water heater. A O Smith series of BEE 5 star rating has standing loss of 0.55 kWh/day. Difference is not huge. V Guard is also a good brand.

27

Please tell me the complete specification of Jaquar Elena 25 ltr Geyser.
In particular, does it hold Hot water upto 24hrs if water is not use. What is its BEE rating. Whats are the Cons. If Bajaj Majesty is a better option?

28
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Kamran,

Elena 25 lts has a standing loss of 0.562 kWh per day. Which means, in a day the water will loose about 19 degrees temperature if you leave the water in it for 24 hours. So if you heat the water till 70, then after a day it will be at about 51. Bajaj Majesty has standing loss more than 0.602 (different majesty models have different standing losses between 0.602 and 0.687). So the Jaquar model is certainly better as it is a BEE 5 star rated model.

You can check more specifications on this link: https://jaquar.com/products/pdf/Water-Heater-Catalouge-2016.pdf .... the standing loss number that I have mentioned is from BEE data.

29

Hi Abhishek .......I am a Senior Citizen staying in my own house in South Delhi. I need to buy a standard wall type storage electric geyser 25 lts. I have been recomended Bajaj Shakti GPV which costs Rs.6044/- plus taxes.
I would appreciate your guidance please.

30
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Sir,

Bajaj Shakti GPV is a good water heater in general. It is a BEE 5 star rated water heater with standing loss of 0.562 kWh/day. The inner body has glass lined innertank which will be durable (good for corrosion protection). The heating element is one that could have been better with some corrosion protection. It currently has copper tubular heating element, but Bajaj has not put any corrosion protection for the same. If your location does not have hard water then that will also work fine. Only in case the water is hard, then you may look at some model that has heating element with corrosion protection.

Hello Sir,
I wanted to install two new water heaters, we have been using Superheat geyser since last 15 years and it worked really well, I am unable to find a similar model, kindly make me aware of any model which is similar superheat. Preferably a made in India product.

34
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Roshni,

What was the specification of the geyser that you had? I mean what was the storage volume and heating element rating? If you want make in India then I would suggest you to go for Havells, Venus or Bajaj water heaters.

35

Hi Abhishek, You have given really nice info. You also ensure to reply to each one query. Good job.
I am looking for instant geyser (6l), which brand will be the best in terms of (saving electricity with better service in India)? Thanks again

Hi Vandu,

You can look at any of these:

V-GUARDSPRINHOT PLUS 6http://amzn.to/2gAMnrPhttp://fkrt.it/Ri~XT!NNNN
RACOLDPR(NEO/STYLO/STYLO ES)-6V 

These are all good brands and these geysers have 3kW heating element, so they will heat water fast and they are energy efficient as well.

37

Thanks Abhishek for replying quickly. I did check these geysers but found them storage and not instant type. How would be Ferroli Mito 6 l? Thanks

38
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Vandu,

By definition any 6 lts water heater will be storage only. Only 1 lts and 3 lts models are called instant. They are called instant because they do not store much water in them. The 6lts model you have listed is a BEE 4 star rated model. I think the models that I had given are better. Even if you check the website for Mito 6 it says Storage Water Heater ( http://www.ferroli.co.in/mito6.html ).

39

Hi Abhishek,
Thanks for guiding me which helped me a lot. I have finally bought Racold Pronto Neo (6 l) and it's working amazing. Thank you so much for taking out time to reply and guide me. Keep doing the good work. Regards

Puro Turbo has three heating modes: 1000 W/2000 W/3000 W. Higher the wattage faster the heating. Puro Plus has single heating mode of 2000 Watts and it also has steel rolled inner tank with whirlflow technology.

Hi Abhishek,

was impressed looking at the comments and your guidance. Would do mea ton of help if you can suggest me a good storage geyser 25lts , we were using racold for more than 25 years.. Are there any better brands for more efficient geysers like you have been mentioning AO Smith etc?.. Planning to buy before they launch GST!!!

47
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Raghu,

Racold is also a great brand and the reason it does not appear much on the list here is because we try to collect data for energy efficiency from BEE (Bureau of Energy Efficiency) and then match it with what the manufacturers are selling. And unfortunately with Racold we find it difficult to match the products. However, Racold as well is a great brand. In fact you can look at their Eterno or Altro 5 star rated series as well which are great products. You can look at any of these:

thanks a ton.. are they(Racold) energy efficient too?

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Yes they are.

Need more detailed about this geyser American Micronic 25 L Storage Water Geyser is best in power consuming .
They are mentioning three option 800w/1200w/2000w
Is it correct ?

51
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Electricity consumption of water heater does not depend on the wattage. It depends on the volume of water heated and the temperature to which it is heated. Because wattage is just the rate of release of energy. The total energy needed will depend on volume and temperature. The three options will just help you increase the rate of heating. By the way most common water heaters available in market have wattage of 2000W. There are 3000W and 4000W water heaters as well that will heat much faster.

52

Thanks Abhishek
Please suggest top three geysers name with power consuming plus heating faster technology on salt water.

hi, i am looking for info on AO Smith HSE SES 15 or 25 litres geysers review..as i checked in store today, product is very old (2014), is it good to buy those old dated one's? currently i have 8 years old Racold 35 litres horizontal and got some problem with heating and thermostat needs to be replaced so thought of buying new one..please suggest....i am from Bangalore...thanks in advance...

55

Hi Team,
You can listed Reconnect in the 15 litres category. Is it really good since this is the first time I am hearing about a reconnect product being good.

56
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi,

Our table is directly based on data from Bureau or Energy Efficiency and the only parameter being used is standing loss. We do not apply any brand perception in preparing the lists.

57
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Rakesh,

I just checked your messages and somehow they were lying the spam section of comments. Not sure why. I typically check the moderation queue, but not the spam one. Usually one goes in SPAM due to certain IP address ranges, email addresses, etc. I guess in your case it was IP address, but I am not sure.

Well for instant water heaters, manufacturers publish very limited data and unfortunately there are no standards for manufacturers to publish data. So the decision has to be made based on the limited data that we have.

Among the brands you have listed, I would say Havells and AO Smith are really good brands. Havells model has ABS outer body, SS 304 inner tank and copper heating element. But if you get hard water, then there is no corrosion protection for the heating element. Although SS 304 tank should be able to stand hard water. But heating element is doubtful.

AO Smith model again has ABS body, but there is no mention of material for inner tank (however, their website says 7 year warranty on inner tank with 5 year replacement warranty, so I guess the material would be good), the heating element has glass coating for corrosion protection.

Bajaj does not provide much information on material and just says long life heating element or warranty on tank. Crompton also does not provide information on heating element.

So I guess the best choice is AO Smith EWS in this case.

58
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Rakesh,

Currently we do not have much data to select the right Instant Geyser. You may go for one from top brands like Havells or AO Smith.

59
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Rakesh,

It is not that Instant Geysers are not energy efficient. In fact if you are able to manage with it, then it can be the most energy efficient. The smallest you can buy for your needs the better it is from electricity saving point of view. The only challenge with instant is that instant electric geysers are not able to give proper output. Because the storage is less, you soon run out of hot water. And that is why it is good enough for small use like kitchen. For bathroom gas instant geysers are better. You can check more over here: https://www.bijlibachao.com/water-heaters/instant-water-heater-geyser-may-be-good-for-individual-but-bad-for-system.html

As for the two models, you should certainly go with Adonia Digital as it gives better warranty. ELCB (shock resistance) is there in Quatro as well.

60

Hi Abhishek, Thank you for constantly updating the website and providing useful information. I am going for Digital variants of 15 Ltrs of Water Geysers , will it be good,your opinions about digital variants ? If Digital is good then I want to buy between AO Smith's HSE SES & HSE SFS AND Havell's Quatro Digital & Adonia Digital. if you have any other model no. of any other brand or so then you can suggest me. As this is the first time i'm buying a Geyser so I want a good one for my home.So help Me selecting.

61
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Rakesh,

Digital variants give convenience of operating the water heater. They have lot of features where you can use timers etc to make sure that your geyser starts on a particular time and switches off on a fixed time. You can also use a remote control to vary the hot water temperature. Plus a lot of other features.

If you use it, then it certainly has benefits as in you need not remember to switch it off and it will switch off automatically. There is no way it will run through out the day as it will switch off automatically. The models from Havells also have added features that stop mixing of hot and cold water in the geyser thus giving you consistent hot water.

If you do not use the features then it will be as good as any other geyser. But there are advantages of using these features as it gives convenience and also saves electricity. So certainly they are better.

Also I personally find Havells models having very good features that can be very useful. So I think Havells Quatro Digital can be a good buy.

62

We have a solar connection but during winters it is inefficient. So we are planning to add geyser in our bathroom. We have got two bathrooms so please guide us which one will be the best and which has geyser detects the temperature beforehand so that it heats accordingly during winters and summers.

63
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

All geysers have a thermostat which makes sure that the temperature of water in it is not more than a set temperature. So you can put any geyser in the bathroom, just make sure that the input to the electric geyser comes from output of solar geyser. If the water is hot enough, your electric geyser will not even try to heat it and thus the solution will work perfectly for you both in winters and summers.

64

Hi Sir,
I would like to install a 25lts based on the below details
1. Energy Efficient
2. Hard water to soft water converter
3 Best in service.
Kindly request your advise,
Thank you,
Waiting for your reply

65

You can use a separate water filter container with antiscalant balls available amazon to make hard water soft before geyser connection. I don't know if it works but this can be home remedy for such things. Always ask experts before doing it.

66
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Nirmal,

We do not have information on models with water softner. So I am sorry, I would not be able to help you on this.

67

Hi Mr.Jain,

I live in Chennai. Using a 25 L bajaj geyser. Hard water. Nowadays I find it is taking a lot of time for the water to get heated. Do I need to change heating element ? Pls adivse. Thanks..

73
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

It could be possible that there is deposition on the heating element. You should get it checked.

74

Thanks. Mr. Jain. Heating element is more than 3 years old. Should I change it ? Also how to clean deposits on the element.

75
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

You will need to take it out and check it. Even after cleaning it will still need corrosion protection, so you will have to apply something for that. If it is not in good shape then you will need to replace it. See if your electrician can help you out.

76

Mr.Jain, I got the heating element replaced. The problem presists, takes even longer for water to heat up,

77
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

The time for heating depends a lot on the wattage of heating element and of course there should be no corrosion of the heating element. Is the wattage of heating element the same as what it was earlier?

78

Hi Abhishek,

Thanks for providing such detailed info on water storage heaters.

I am doing up my place in Navi Mumbai.

I need to buy three 50l storage heaters + two 35l storage heaters.
I want to have temperature control on the heaters. Does not need to be smart phone compliant; corded remote is sufficient for me in all bathrooms.
I checked out the AO CEWHR which seems like a decent product.
Would you recommend this product or are there better ones available that suit my requirements.

Thanks once again.,

79
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Aziz,

I am sorry we do not capture the information that you are looking for. The objective here is to help people make an informed decision as far as electricity consumption is concerned. So we collect information from Bureau of Energy Efficiency (models, their star rating and energy efficiency). After that we just check if the models are available in the market or not, their prices, etc. We do not capture features and orientation of models. So I will not be able to provide you most efficient models that are horizontal.

80

Sorry forgot to provide more info:

Heater needs to be horizontal; wall mounted on the ceiling.

Thanks :)

81

Dear Abhishek and Bijli Bachao Team,
Thanks for a very well written article and the rankings. It helped a lot in deciding to go for the right geyser.

Abhishek, after discussing with you I finally opted to buy the Venus 50 Lts for the Mother Teresa Home for Destitute as it has a good warrenty period.
Thanks for all the help.
Regards,
Amit

82
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hey Amit,

I am happy that the information was of help :)

83

Hello Abhishek,

Prakash here. We are family of three (me, wife and 2 year old son). We live in an apartment in Bengaluru and we do have both corporation water as well as bore water. I need you advise on buying two geysers - one for common bathroom and the other was master bedroom. Generally, not many guests will stay in our house and even if they stay not more than three members will stay with us.

Now, I need your advise on which brands to select for my requirements and considering our bore water in Bengaluru. How many liters should we opt for two bathrooms? Generally, we do take bucket baths.

84
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Prakash,

10 lts is good for bucket bath and 15 lts is good enough for shower bath. You can look at the top ten list above for models. In general Havells, AO Smith, Bajaj, Venus, Racold, Morphy Richards, Ferolli are good brands.

85
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Just look for a brand that gives maximum warranty. My guess is that you will get max warranty in Venus.

86

Thank you for your respone

87

Anything Wrong About American Micronic 25l ??? Good and positive reviews except few who said it takes 25-30 mins. For heating help asap i want to order a geysar today only on amazon.

88
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Amit,

We have no idea about American Micronic as it is not listed on BEE and I am hearing about this brand for the first time.

89

Hello ,
I want to buy A Geysar for family of four please suggest me a specific one? Rather than suggesting many?

90

Hello,
I want to buy a geyser of 25ltr, I am confused between Venus (Lyra), Racold (Eterno 2) and V guard (Pebble Metallica).
Which among these would be long lasting and energy efficient. Please advise me the best within there 3 geysers.

91
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Jeetu,

Racold has not published its energy efficiency data properly and thus I cannot comment on it. But VGuard Pebble Metallica looks really good with good energy efficiency as well as awesome warranty of 3 yrs on product, 4 years on heating element and 10 years on tank. This is the best warranty that you can get from any brand. I think VGuard model is the best choice.

92

Thank you.
But you didnt talk about Venus Lyra. Hope you noticed it. Would it be a smart choice to select a geyser by simply looking at warranty conditions.
Please suggest the best in all aspects like features, technology and can be trusted in long term.

93
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Jeetu,

I did notice Venus Lyra and I responded based on the parameters that you were looking for: Long Lasting and Energy Efficiency.

As far as technology is concerned it truly depends on what you need and what you want. There are SMART water heaters available that you can control through your remote, smart phone, etc. They have features like no mixing of hot and cold water, earth leakage circuit breaker to prevent electric shocks, timers to on and off the geyser, etc. You will find that Havells has some digital models that are most feature rich.

The models you had listed were similar and had all standard features. And these days most top brand have good corrosion protection for tanks and heating element that are important for durability. And that is where a brand that is confident to give long warranty on these gives more confidence.

94

Thank you very much for the valuable information. Leaving all the discussion behind, which brand and/or specific model of geyser would you recommend in 25ltr and 15ltr segment, that can be trusted universally.

95
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Jeetu,

I cannot recommend a specific brand as every brand has its pros and cons. There is no universal brand that fits in every requirement. You can look at the list of top models in the list above and choose as per your brand preference.

96

Hi sir,
I live in a rural area with 6 family members. The geyser will be installed for 2 bathrooms simultaneously, and all family members will be using it for shower as well as bucket baths(2-3 person). I have a list of queries in my mind:-
1. What should be the capacity of my geyser, my plumber suggested me a 25ltr.
2. Is there any geyser which comes with copper tank and copper heating element.
3. Which tank is best against hard water corrosion and able to withstand high pressure.
4. Which is the. most energy efficient and has least standing loss, heats water quickly.
Please suggest me the best geyser that is energy efficient, durable long lasting and has good safety features in terms of tank bursting and minimum standing loss. I checked your list but couldn't decide, please give a specific model.
Thanks.

97
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

HI Aman,

Here is my response:

1) Ideally I suggest going for smaller individual water heaters for each bathroom (10 lts for bucket bath and 15 lts for shower bath). But if you are going for one single common then 25 lts should be good enough.

2) Even copper can corrode so just looking for copper is not good enough. There are far better technologies for corrosion protection in the market. We have written about them on this link: https://www.bijlibachao.com/water-heaters/coating-storage-water-heater-thermoplastic-stainless-steel-enamel-coating-glasslined.html

3) Most top brands have good corrosion protection and can handle high pressure. Havells, Bajaj, AO Smith, Racold, Venus, Morphy Richards, Ferolli all are good brands. Most of their products can handle high pressure and have good corrosion protection. You should look for one that is giving good warranty on tank as well as heating element. Also although most of their products can handle high pressure but the total pressure it can handle is mostly mentioned in the specifications.

4) The data is there in the list above. We just provide information to people so that they can make an informed decision, it is difficult for us to go much beyond that.

98

Thanks for your valuable advice. I understood it is better to go for a better tank option than copper. But my local dealer told to go with a copper coiled heating element that is better in terms of efficiency. He was talking about some V-guard models. Is it true, do any brand have copper coiled heating elements?

As you said above about Racold, I checked the list but there is not any geyser of racold in 25ltr section. Please provide a updated comparison list link.
Thanks.

99
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

VGuard is also a good brand. You can go for VGuard as well. The reason Racold does not appear in the list above is because our list is prepared based on data from Bureau of Energy Efficiency. We take BEE's list and then compare it with models that are listed on a manufacturers' websites. We do this because BEE's list has lot of models that manufacturers are not selling (they just get them registered). Now with Racold we are not able to find the matching models that they have registered with BEE on their website. The naming convention that they use to register with BEE does not match with what they sell and it is difficult to find the right match. And thus they do not appear on this list.

100

Racold has multiple models being manufactured but those are registered in BEE as a model family. Racold has models of Pronto, CDR, Altro, Eterno, Andris, Platinum etc. and each of them having capacities in different range (6 Ltr to 300 Ltrs). Racold's most of the vertical models (below 50 Ltr) are 5 Star rated where as all the horizontal products (up to 50 Ltr) are either 4 star or 3 star rated based on capacities. Racold water heater's SPHP coating on tank is the best coating in the present water heaters across India.

101
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

I guess you work with Racold and it is great that you have commented
here. I am attaching a screenshot of data from BEE website. Please help
me understand how can these models be linked to models that exist on
Racold website. It is extremely confusing and frustrating for a consumer to figure out which models are star rated.

102

Can I take Racold eterno 2 25 L water heater. Please suggest me.
Thanks

103
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

You can surely go for it. It is a good brand.

104

Hi Abhishek, i live in chennai. i am the only person who would be using geyser on daily basis. what geyser would you recommend for bucket bath and shower? Help is appreciated!!!

105
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

You can look at the list of top 10 lts models in the table above. 10 lts should be good for you.

106

Thx for the response, if its not too much trouble i would like to know which one you would pick..............Thank you for your efforts and this dedicated site.

107
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Irshad,

All I would say that Havells, Racold, AO Smith, Bajaj, Morphy Richards, Venus, Ferolli are some good brands. You can go for any one of them in the top list.

108

Hello Abhishek,

I live in Kolkata. In my area, water contain irons and it damage the geyser in some times. I checked with electrician and he suggested to go for Venus brand only. I m looking a geyser with 15 ltrs capacity. Could you please suggest me the the best model which is best to use with hard water? I will use the geyser everyday for 30 mins and rest of other time it will kept switched off.

Thanks in advance.

109
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Venus is a good brand and you can certainly go for it. Here are some models from Venus that are energy efficient:

15GL
15R
15EV
15VL
15RX
15RD

These days most geysers come with good corrosion protection for tank and the heating element. Top brands like Havells, AO Smith, Racold, Bajaj, etc give 7 years warranty on the tank and 4 years on heating element. Just go for a brand that gives good warranty on tank and heating element. Venus is also good.

110

Reconnect geysers by reliance digital... R they good?? Please reply me ...

111
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

As you have asked about a specific brand, then I will just copy and paste a reply that I have given to someone else in the past:

Since there is a huge demand for cheap products in India, there are many companies that are importing cheaply manufactured products from China and putting their own brand name on them and selling it in Indian market. They are not the OEM (or Original Equipment Manufacturers). Most electronic retail stores have such brands like Future Group has Koryo, Reliance has Reconnect, Vijay Sales has Vise, Croma has Croma. These guys are not OEMs but they are just importing from china and putting their name (brand). If you want to buy them, you can buy them at your own risk.

112

Hi Abhishek- Is havells adonia geyser good? how does it compare with AO Smith SBS digital??

113
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Although AO Smith SBS Digital has slightly lesser standing losses but the safety features in Havells Adonia are quite good and in general it is better from a technology perspective. I think you should go for Havells Adonia. Warranties are same on both.

114

Hi Abhishek - had posted a query 4 days back but do not see the answer . I am installing rain shower in my bathrooms . I was told we need to use 40 litre storage water heater . But my contractor says 25 litre would suffice . Please guide what is correct and what model do you recommend in horizontal storage water heaters . For further info , i am on 2nd floor and my building is 12 storey tall . Thanks in advance . Pravin Tonsekar

115
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Ideally I tell people to install a 10 lts model if people in the house use bucket bath and 15 lts in case of shower bath. Both 25 lts and 40 lts are much bigger. The electricity consumption depends on volume of water you heat and with bigger water heaters its highly likely that you heat excess water.

116

Thanks abhishek . Would 15 litres suffice for rain shower ? for a 25 litre which brand do you suggest for horizontal placement .

117
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

I am not sure. If it needs more water then you will have to go for 25 lts. The list of top most efficient models are listed in the table on this page. You can refer to the same for models.

118

Thanks Abhishek

119

Dear Abhishek,
Hi
What are the standing loss of Bajaj Majestic GPU 25 litres & Havells Puro Plus 25 litres to decide my preference.
For a family of two person & three bathrooms once in a while 2-3 guests coming for 1-2 nights, should all bathrooms have separate 25 litres Geysers in Jaipur Rajasthan or smaller size can be OK? Bajaj is cost effective by 20-25 % comparing to Havells but Bajaj & Racold are of similar rates for me. In which brand I should invest to avoid future headache ?

120
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Bajaj Majesty 25 GPU has standing loss of 0.602 and Havells Puro Plus 25 has standing loss of 0.56 .... so Havells Puro Plus is more energy efficient. Bajaj CALDIA 25L or CALENTA 25 would be equivalent to Havells Puro Plus.

121

Hi Abhishek,

I've 2 very simple queries..
#1) For a Family of 5 persons what will be the ideal size (ltr) of a Geyser?
#2) Longevity and reliability wise which Brand will you suggest as the Best?

Regards,
Rajarshi

122
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Here is my response:

1) If it is not too cold in winters then 6 lts is good for bucket bath and 10 lts for shower bath. If it is cold then 10 lts for bucket bath and 15 lts for shower bath is good. This is irrespective of number of people in the house.

2) Try to go for a brand where you get maximum warranty on tank as well as heating element. In general Havells, Bajaj, AO Smith, Racold, Morphy Richards, Ferolli are good brands.

123

Sir, i am in hyderabad, I want to buy geysers for my 3 bed apartment. Please suggest me the combination of geysers - like one 15 ltr, and two 6 lt. etc. to save on the purchase cost. saving on recurring energy bill also is a concern.thank you.

124
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Srivathsa,

If it is not too cold in winters then 6 lts is good for bucket bath and 10 lts for shower bath. If it is cold then 10 lts for bucket bath and 15 lts for shower bath is good. You can look at the list of top most efficient heaters in the table above. Havells, Bajaj, AO Smith, Racold, Morphy Richards, Ferolli are some good brands.

125

Hi, which water heater is good * AO Smith HSE-SDS-15 15-Litre 2000-Watt Vertical Water Heater or * AO Smith HSE-VAS 15-Litre 2000-Watt Storage Water Heater (White), interms of material and energy.

126
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Both the water heaters have same specifications and features. The only difference is in the design (look and feel). You can go for any one of them that fits your requirements.

128

Hi...Consider a use case where the water heater is used by correctly switching on and off exactly before and after use regularly. In this case I assume standing loss is not a parameter for calculating energy efficiency. Is my understanding right? If yes, how will the top 10 list change? (as I see that you've used standing loss as the primary parameter for ranking)

129
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Karthik,

If you use it properly as you mentioned, then standing loss will not be a big impact. It will be quite small. And in that case you can choose any model from a good brand. It will be difficult to put a top 10 list in that case because then it will become a subjective list (based on my perception of various brands). Here the models are being compared on hard data.

130

Thanks for the quick response Abhishek!
