Electricity Saving Tips For Homes And Offices

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

By on April 29, 2015

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 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.
  • Use the ‘Add to compare’ icon to compare the monetary value of the units available from BEE based on your tariff from your electricity provider and your usage.
  • We regularly update this list as new models get added in the BEE list of water heaters.

Hi Bijlibachao,
I am looking for a geyser and confused with the number of options available and need help. I have read the articles on capacity, consumption, standing losses etc. And now I am confused.
Currently I have an 8 year old ISI marked geyser with 1 litre capacity, we have recently started using more of the same and saw a surge of 100 units in electricity in this years and last years bill.
Based on one of your articles I am targeting the havells Beuno 6…however I read about your article about gas geysers and saw the power comparison, we are already using PNG for cooking but I am not sure how safe it is and what kind of installation will be required.
It seems more logical to simply replace the old electric geyser??

Please advice
Yours,
Confused

Hi Bijli Bachao Team
I want some suggestions to decide between Havells QUATRO 15 Digital and AO Smith HSE-SES-15
Here are my criteria
1. Standing loss : Quatro wins here, with 0.459 versus 0.620 for AOSmith
How critical is standing loss, considering a family of four, using the geyser only in morning, staying at Hyderabad or Delhi.

2. Warranty : AOSmith is offering 7 yrs on tank and 4 yrs on element, versus 5yrs on tank and 2 yrs on element by Havells.

3. Both are having digital display. I know that Havells shows both current temp and target temp. Does AOSmith SES also capable of showing current temp of tank water?

4. Price wise, both seem to be in range of Rs 300-500 of each other, so that is not a criteria for me.

Is there any other criteria that I should be considering. I would greatly appreciate your inputs on this.

Rgds,
Arun

Hi,

I would like to buy an LPG geyser for my shower, From the net i was able to find two brands, Bajaj and Venus. Other than that info is very limited. On snapdeal, Bajaj is available, but i cant find out if they have service backup as the site says the installation will be done by bajaj.

Can you give me your suggestion and your opinion about LPG geysers.

regards,

Sunil, alleppey ( Alappuzha ) Kerala

Hi,

We are looking for a geyser and need your suggestions regarding the selection. Based on your blog , we have decided to take two 15 ltr geysers for both our bathrooms. The options are AO smith and Ferroli.
Since Ferroli is relatively new in the market we are not getting much reviews regarding it. Our area has hard water , So please suggest which one to go with. We are interested in Ferroli as it has digital display. Does any of these models have auto switch off when the water is heated to the desired temperature after we set it?

Thanks,
Manjula

Hi Abhishek,

Thanks for maintaining such a nice blog, and helping people.

Would request your advice on choice for a good Geyser.

City: Bangalore
Bath Mode: 2 Buckets per Bath per person, Many times use overhead shower or hand shower
No of people using: 2 people, twice daily (Morning-Evening)
Usage: All year round daily
Preferences: Energy Efficient with low electricity cost, Space efficient, power fluctuations resistant, Safe and durable, Quick heating as much as possible, Generally temperatures outside are 24+ degrees or more all year round, Need temperature control and if any has option for hot and cold water mixing, I generally forget to switch off the geyser so any mechanism supporting auto cut-off will help

Topmost priority: Best, reliable, and efficient After Sales Support by Company

Looking forward to your recommendations

Thanks in advance,

Max
