Things to Consider Before Buying a Mixer Grinder in India
Below are the things to consider before buying a mixer grinder in India.
An average geyser comes with a capacity between 6 to 35 liters. If you are looking for a geyser for bathing purposes, you must select one with a capacity above 15 liters. Whereas, if you are looking for a geyser to clean utensils in your kitchen, then a capacity of 6 to 8 liters would suffice your need.
Water tank material
Copper, thermostatic, or stainless steel are commonly used materials inside a geyser. To prevent the heater from rusting, we recommend you pick the geyser made of stainless steel. These geysers come with a glass coating to prevent corrosion.
If you are living in a multi-storey building or apartment, make sure to pick a geyser that can withstand high water pressure. If not, it can cause water leakage issues after a few days of purchase.
Choose the geysers that are energy efficient. If you are concerned about high electricity bills, we recommend picking the geysers with an excellent power-saving rating.
When you buy a geyser, make sure that it has a thick insulator. It helps in keeping the water warm for a long time.
While buying any electronic device, it is essential to check if it has safety features or not. A good geyser comes with multi-function safety valves and thermostats. So, make sure if these features are present in the geyser before you make a purchase.
Type of geyser
Instant geysers come with a higher wattage than storage heaters, as they need to heat the water quickly. However, higher wattage does not necessarily mean higher power consumption. Instant geysers consume the required power to heat the water instantly and then auto cut-off. Hence, you won’t see any considerable surge in your power bills.
Condenser and no condenser geyser: While purchasing a geyser, it is best to choose the one with a condenser, as it helps maintain the water’s heat for a long time. Instant geysers with condensers come with two metal exchangers to retain the heat and heat the incoming cold water. This feature saves up 90% of your power.
If you have a large water consumption at home, we suggest using storage water heaters, as they come with a large water holding capacity. The storage water heater works on the electric convection principle. These geysers store energy in the energy-keeping elements during the low power tariff of the day, and they release energy during high tariff periods. It helps in saving your power bills.
However, the only downside of the storage geyser is that it leaks heat. So, to keep the water hot at the temperature set by you, it auto turns on.
Vertical and horizontal geysers: Vertical storage geysers are comparatively more efficient than horizontal storage geysers due to turbulence. The turbulence is high in a horizontal water heater, whereas the turbulence is low in vertical water heaters.
Moreover, horizontal geysers are more expensive than vertical geysers.
We hope this guide will help you choose the right geyser as per your needs.
