During the monsoon season, the temperature is within 15 to 35 degrees celsius in most states of India. The temperature at night in these states can be within 1 to 30 degrees celsius. Some people prefer a cold bath no matter how the climate is. During the winter or rainy season, most people will take a hot bath. For such people, a geyser is a must-have home appliance.
Geysers are of two types – gas and instant. The former types of geysers must be connected to an LPG cylinder or a PNG connection. The latter type requires electricity to work. Instant geysers are expensive compared to gas geysers. However, they heat the water quicker. Why purchase a geyser? Here are the benefits of having a geyser at home:
Safe: Although you can warm several liters of water on a gas stove, you’ll have to be careful while carrying the hot water. A person carrying boiling hot water may slip and the hot water may spill on the person’s body.
Fast: Water will be heated quickly in geysers compared to hearth or stove burner.
Piped supply: PNG, electric, or gas geysers are installed outside the bathroom and a pipe is connected to the outlet. Once the water is boiled or heated, it will be supplied through the pipe. You won’t have to carry the boiling water.
Which geyser should you purchase? Below, we’ve shared 7 great instant/gas geysers you can buy in India:
Note: Although the geysers are equipped with thermostats, safety systems, accidents may happen. Thus, no matter which geyser you purchase, you should have a fire extinguisher at your place. In case of a short circuit or fire caused by gas leakage or geyser malfunction, you can quickly douse the fire.
