Electricity Saving Tips For Homes And Offices

Top Ten Water Heaters/geysers in India by standing loss and size in 2018

By on February 15, 2018

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. But before that let’s look at top Brands for Water Heaters / Geysers in India.

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.

Hi Abhishek, Thanks for sharing your valuable inputs on buying geysers. I have a query. I'm looking to buy a 25L water heater for my home(4 Members). I have shortlisted few models, 1) American Micronic 2) Morphy Richards Lavo 3) AO Smith. Though i see really good rating for American Micronic ,i'm bit confused if it might back fire. Is it really good decision to go for it or suggest a better choice. Looking for your inputs.

2
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Ragul,

American Micronic is an Indian startup that is making energy efficient geysers. The feedback for them is great on Amazon. But you will have to trust a startup if you want to go for them. If you want to play it safe, then I would suggest that you go for AO Smith. That would be the best and safest option.

3

Dear Abhishek,

Please suggest a geyser for extreme hard water condition (like of Noida), that can save electricity too. Some modern features will be appreciated.

4
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Prasoon,

You can look at these:

AO Smith HSE-SES-015 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2DKH6pV , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/VcmzKTuuuN )

or Havells ADONIA DIGITAL 15 (Amazon Link; http://amzn.to/2zp2ayP )

5

Dear Abhishek,

Thank you for the prompt reply. I checked the same models in 25L but could not find the product. Are these models available in 25L too?

6
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

They are. Check these:

AO Smith HSE-SES-025 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2EcINfq , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/h~qS3TuuuN )
Havells ADONIA DIGITAL 25 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2AyA04Z , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/RJGgo!NNNN )

Hi Abhi...Based on all reviews and ur suggestions ive decided to go for 15litres water geyser. Budget is not major factor.pl suggest best one in AO smith with energy efficiency n corrosion protection etc. I saw several like AO smith HSE- SDS/ VAS/ SAS/SFS/SES/SBS. Can u kindly pick the best one based on all factors. Eagerly waitng for ur reply abhi ......pl pl pl

8
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Raja,

You can go for AO Smith HSE-SGS-015 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2Ekj5q8 ) .... this one has high energy efficiency (similar standing loss as SBS, SAS, SDS, etc), corrosion protection and faster heating (3 kW heating element).

9

One more questn abhi...can u pl let me kno d diffrnce between AO smith SAS and SGS?apart frm 3kw heatng elmnt

10
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

SGS is a better model. It has Blue Diamond Glass Lining,Glass Coated Heating Element which would be better for corrosion protection. SGS is also compact and has temperature control knob.

11

Hi Abhishek,

We are a 3 member family. Some times we get visitors, so the count might increase to 5 to 7. I need your inputs on which water heater to buy.

Place of Stay - KeelKatalai, Chennai. Water is hard

1. The brand - Havells, Racold, American Micronix, AO Smith - Which of these has best post sales service?
2. 15lts or 25 lts
3. The maintenance required. I hear that AO Smith gives out some rotten egg smell because of the sediments over a period of time.

I am open to any other brands you suggest as well. Thanks.

Awaiting your reply.

12
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Here is my response:

1) We do not have location specific data on post sale service. And service levels of brands change from location to location. So I will not be able to help you on this.

2) Ideal size of a water heater should depends on maximum water requirement for a single use. Usually 10 lts water heater is good enough for bucket bath and 15 lts for shower bath. 25 lts is good only when you have a tub that you need to fill. Otherwise 25 lts is more electricity consuming and should not be used.

3) I have not heard of such things about AO Smith. Havells, Racold and AO Smith use good material which is corrosion and hard water resistant. American Micronix is a new brand (an e-commerce sensation). The reviews on Ecommerce are good, but then its durability will come out with time.

13

Thanks Abhishek. Which heater will you suggest me?

14
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

If you are looking for feature rich model (with wireless control, digital timer, etc) then you can look at AO Smith HSE-SES-015 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2DKH6pV , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/VcmzKTuuuN ) or Havells ADONIA DIGITAL 15 (Amazon Link; http://amzn.to/2zp2ayP ) ..... if you are looking for faster heating, then these 3 kW water heaters are also good: AO Smith HSE-SGS-015 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2zp08Pt ) and Havells PURO TURBO 15 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2zp2pKf , http://fkrt.it/0jIKV!NNNN ) ... in Racold ANDRIS-15L2 is a good model.

15

Which is the best available tankless water geyser in India? I need to fill a Jacuzzi which is approximately 5000 litres. I've seen electric tankless geysers available in the States but nothing here in India.

16

Hi, Thanks a lot for the details. this blog helps a lot. I need some details about "American Micronic"

1. The above rating (Rank 1) which you provided is based on company provided details or did you guys check it personally?
2. I don't see any advertisement or branding or stock in local shops, how come this brand got public attraction. How did this come to know to you guys? (Just curiosity)
3. Do you suggest buying this as they don't service center in all locations and after 2 years we need to depend on local technicians (Authorized service center is there only in Nodia and we need courier them if we want their service after 2 years)
4. The brand says American but I don't see any product in US Market with this brand.

Dont take negative, my only concern is - How come people get to know about this brand with out any publicity and how come this got good reviews.
PS: I got to know about this brand after reading this article.
Thanks.

Hi Hari,

Here is the response to your questions:

1) The ranking on this website for ACs/Refrigerators/Water Heaters or Geysers/Ceiling Fans is based purely on data from Bureau of Energy Efficiency (or BEE which is a Government of India body that provides data on energy saving potential of appliances). So the American Micronic model is the most energy-efficient (or electricity saving) model available in the market. Models on BEE are those that follow BIS standards (or Indian Standards) and are energy efficient. We have not tested this product personally and it purely based on data. It so happens that these models also happen to be popular on e-commerce platforms (and we have no role in the same).

2) As I said the ranking is based on data from BEE and American Micronic did have to register their products with BEE before selling it in the Indian market. And that is how we came to know about it.

3) Our recommendation is always to buy energy efficient water heaters based on your brand preference. Based on our experience brands like Havells, Racold, AO Smith, Bajaj, Venus and Crompton are really good in the Indian market (as listed in the list of top brand above). This particular model of American Micronic happens to be the most energy efficient in the market and also has great user feedback on e-commerce platforms. Also as they are based out of Gurgaon, I think they should have better service in North India. You can check more on this link: http://americanmicronic.in/services.html

4) It is not an American company but is more like an Indian Startup. They started operations in 2014, so it is not too old as well.

P.S: As I mentioned above, the list is based on data from Bureau of Energy Efficiency and does not have any perception or subjectivity built in. For subjectivity, we have given some brand names we feel are popular and good. The objective of this site is Bijli Bachao, so we list out most efficient products based on a very objective criterion. And we want people to do apply some of their choices before taking a decision. Any model appearing as number 1 is not an endorsement from us. It just means that it is the most electricity saving product available in the market.

18

Thanks a ton for your valuable information. Appreciate the quick response.

19

which is most electricity efficient electric gyser in one liter category?

20
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

There is no efficiency standard for 1 lite category. So I am sorry, there is no data to give you the most efficient model.

21

Hi, I am looking for Geyser with less power consumption so that I can run even in power backup less than 1Kwh.Please suggest.

22
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Rosh,

1 kWh is absolute unit for energy and with that you will hardly be able to heat 15 lts of water. Good enough for 1 person to take bath, but then you will not be left with any energy to run something else.

23

We had a Havell 3L instant water heater. Within 3 yrs, the heating element and other adjoining joints all broke down. Water here in Kolkata where i am staying are very hard with arsenic content. We are staying in 2nd floor in a 14 floor highrise building. Now, i want to buy a storage heater for my family ( 3 members) for bathing. I am thinking of 15L storage heater. But, i want something that should last longer not breaking down due to hard water with less loss & electricity billing. Can you pls suggest the best model? Is Havells Puro Plus good? Should i look at AO smith too?

24
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Agarwalla,

It is my observation that most storage water heaters come with better corrosion protection and technology in general as compared to instant water heaters. Havells Puro Plus uses Feroglass technology for inner tank protection and the heating element is Incoloy glass which is also good against hard water. They give 7 years warranty on tank and 4 years on the heating element. The model is a good one as it is BEE 5 star rated as well. AO Smith is also a great brand, however, the warranty on the heating element would be 3 years in case of AO Smith. Looking at your situation a better warranty would be good. I think Havells Puro Plus would be a good choice.

25

Thanks Abhishek! This Puro Plus model is also safe..right in terms of water leakage like pipes & thermo stat? Is there any data on this re this parameter? I can see you have the manual option to set the temperature. What is ideal temp? Pls let me know as i am thinking about Puro Plus only. But, i want to use a safe & reliable model as i have a small kid.

26
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Agarwalla,

Thermostat has to be there in each and every water heater sold in the market. Thermostat controls the temperature, and if there is no thermostat, the water heater will keep heating and if the temperature goes beyond 100, water will convert from liquid to gas and the water heater will blast with the pressure.

So hands down each and every water heater in the market has a thermostat (and cannot be sold without that). Now some models allow you to set temperature and some do not. By default the thermostat is set to switch off the water heater between 65-70 degrees (for almost all water heaters). In those that have a control, you can reduce it to 55-50 or even 45 to reduce the heat and also electricity consumption (lesser the temperature at which you heat it, lesser will be electricity consumption). Ideal tempearture that human body can handle is about 39-42 degrees. But then you also mix cold water with the incoming hot water.

As far as leakage is concerned, I have not seen any water heater that can sense water leakage from pipes. Puro plus has a safter valve to handle pressure builtup internally (in case). But then it cannot detect leakage in pipes and as I said, I have not seen any that can detect leakage in pipes.

27

Thanks Abhishek! Appeciate your response.

28

Do i need a pressure valve too as my flat is in 2nd floor in a 14 floor apartment?

29
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

If you are going for Havells Puro Plus then it can handle up to 8 bar pressure. I do not think you would need a pressure valve for it.

Which one will better for auto cut up with 2000 watt consumption

35
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

There are two types of auto cut off: 1) Thermostat based 2) Timer based. The 1st type (thermostat based) is there in each and every storage water heater available in market irrespective of brand. Because if there is no thermostat in water heater then the water heater will blow up. The 2nd one is available only in some advanced digital model. And those are expensive (and you are looking for cheaper models). And all the models that I mentioned have 2000 Watt heating element. You can choose anyone of them.

36

Hi Abhishek,

Kudos for such a detailed and informative article. However, it was bit surprising to not see Orient Electric in the Brands list while it has an exhaustive range of geysers including some innovative models. Also, they have the most variety in the instant category - consumption and capacity wise. Nonetheless, a great post.

37
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Thanks, Naveen. Can you please provide some information on their innovative models? Because their website does not give much of an idea of the features. And whatever is provided looks like basic features. The models list above is sorted based on energy efficiency data available from BEE and Orient Electric does not rank high on that.

i am living in ludhiana(punjab) where it gets very cold in winters. i want a 3 ltr instant geyser for the kitchen for washing utensils. can you suggest a good model with excellent efficiency

41
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Kunal,

You can look at Havells Instanio 3 lts (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2jz1Nzu , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/C7nkm!NNNN )

42

thanks . can you also please comment on racold pronto 3kw geyser and suggest one of either havells instaio 3 or racold pronto. also which of them has the highest bee rating as they are not avlbl on the link you provided. thanks.

43
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Kunal,

Instant water heaters do not have BEE ratings. BEE ratings are available from 6 lts onwards. Racold is also a good brand. You can go for either one of them. Both have similar features.

44

thanks abhishek. continue doing the good work. looking for more informative articles on various topics of interest.all the best

45

Hi Abhishek,

Can you please suggest me a good geyser to buy for a family of 4 with 10 liters pricing not more than 6K.
Also please suggest me the specs which i should look at.
Thank you for your help

46
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Sunny,

There are very few (good) options that are there in less than 6K. You can check these:

Crompton SWH 810 Solarium Deluxe (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2jw82nW , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/mXDDU!NNNN )
Bajaj SHAKTI GPV 10 GL (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2js8Cmq , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/mXiPq!NNNN )

These are good water heaters.

48
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Sunny,

It is good for energy efficiency and would be very comparable to the other two models that I shared. You can go for this as well.

49

Hi Abhishek,

I need your help over choosing water heater for the bathing system (big overhead shower + 4 body jets). Total bathing water outflow of 50l/min.

Need high flow water heater (tankless) which is good for hard water and high pressure (4-5kg). Pls advise.Thanks

50
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Rahul,

50l/min is a lot of water. You would need a 100 lts water heater for it if you go for storage. Also, I doubt that most tankless water heaters will work for that kind of flow rate. I guess a gas water heater would be better for it. Although I am not sure if it will be sufficient for that kind of flow rate. Or you may try something like Ameri hot 12 kW water heater (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2hvNnQh ... although it is not available on Amazon currently).

51

Mr. Abhishek Jain
I find Brand Realaxo, Remson ,Activa - all 25 L water heater are offered with similar features with highly Competetive price -aaround 5000/-
Pl convey Ur opinion. Thanks

52
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hello Mr Murthy,

I have not heard much about these brands and so it will be extremely difficult to comment on them. These brands are not available across the country and are not very popular.

53

i have 5 members in my family and i want to purchase a storage water gyser. althogh i have searched alot and i came to know about few models like USHA MISTY,HAVELLS MONZA,HAVELLS PURO,BAJAJ CALENTA but i am unable to opt the best among these regarding build up quality and low electeric consumption.plz help me to opt best one according to my needs. and which one is appropriate 25lts or 15 lts..

54
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

A 15 lts water heater is good enough for most bathrooms. Usha Misty would be the most energy efficient among the models that you have listed. However, Havells Monza and Puro are also quite close and equally good. In terms of popularity, Havells is more popular and a good brand. Monza and Puro are quite comparable, you can go for anyone of them.

55

Was using normal V-Guard water heater and within 3.5 years due to hard water, the tank and elements got corroded. Looking for a best brand and model to suit my requirement. I am in second floor apartment.. no water problems but occasionally power cuts. Was looking at AO smith's technology for anti corrosion. But still couldnt come to a conclusion. Would you please advice ? Thanks in advance.

56
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

AO Smith is a premium brand and it gives 7 years warranty on inner tank. It also uses Anode rod which is made out of stainless steel and has special cathode protection to protect it from hard water. You can certainly go for AO Smith water heater.

57

Thanks for very quick response. Any specific models you would suggest? Looking for 15-20L capacity and budget within 10K

You can look at AO Smith HSE-SES-015 (Amazon Link: http://amzn.to/2Ao9I6C , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/e4uql!NNNN ) .... it is a BEE 5 star rated water heater with lot of great features. You can manually set the temperature levels (using the digital panel or remote control), you can set timer for water heater to start/stop automatically during the day (to save electricity). And it has good technology and warranties as well.

59

Also could you please let me know your review for Racold. Which one is better AO Smith or Racold

60
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

As listed above on this article both AO Smith and Racold are premium brands. They both give similar warranties (7 yrs on tank and 3 years on heating element). You can go for anyone of them.

Hi Abhishek, as per your reviews and recommendations I've shortlisted AO Smith 10 Ltrs SAS Storage Geyser.
But when I searched Flipkart its showing "10 Ltrs Instant" model. #Confusion!
Moreover, I found 2 different products in the same name in Amazon with different prices. I'm getting confused, clear me asap plz. #Dilemma! References are given below :

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Joy,

10Lts model is never categorized as instant. Only 1 and 3 lts models are categorized as instant. So it is a mistake on Amazon. Also at times Amazon and Flipkart do list the same product multiple times with multiple prices when there are multiple vendors selling the same product. As long as the product name is the same, you can go for the ones that are cheapest and the seller has a good rating.

65

Thanks for the immediate reply.

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?

71
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.

72

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.

73
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).

74

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?

75
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.

76

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):

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

79
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.

80

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.

81
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:

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 ?

83
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.

84

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.

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?

87
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.

88

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

89
Abhishek Jain (Mod)

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

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.

91
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.

92

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?

93
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.

94

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.

95
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.

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

103
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 ).

112
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:

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 ?

116
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.

117

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

120

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.

121
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.

122
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.

123
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.

124
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.

125

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.

126
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.

127

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.

128
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.
