Broadly speaking, water heaters can be classified into solar water heaters, gas water heaters, heat pump water heaters and electric water heaters. Furthermore, electric water geysers can be categorised into instant, instantaneous and storage water heaters. We will delve deeper into each type of water heater to give you a comprehensive understanding about it.
Solar water heaters
Solar water heaters are the ones that are installed on rooftops as they utilize the sun’s rays to heat water. Since they function on a renewable source of energy, they are considered an eco-friendly choice. Not only that, solar water geysers are highly beneficial as they can help you save up to 80% of your water heating costs. If you’re looking for safe solar geysers, our Alpha range of solar water heaters is equipped with a “multifunction safety valve” that carries out a unique set of functions to ensure safe usage. Along with that, the vacuum tubes of our solar water heaters are crafted for safety and higher efficiency. That means it’s the ultimate choice for you!
Electric water heaters
Electric water heaters are the ones that need electricity as a power source to function. They are generally very convenient and safe to use. As mentioned earlier, electric water geysers are available as instant water heaters, storage water heaters and instantaneous geysers. Instant water heaters give you an immediate supply of hot water without keeping you waiting in the shower.
However, if you have a large family, then you should opt for an electric storage water heater. They have a large insulated tank that can store hot water for longer durations. If you opt for such kind of water geyser, make sure that it is durable and has a strong built-in tank. For instance, the tanks of our CDR range of storage water heaters are coated with Titanium enamel that safeguards against corrosion and ensures a longer lifespan. Other than electric storage and electric instant water heaters, at Racold we also provide online instantaneous water geysers. You may check out the Aures range of water heaters that have been devised to supply you with hot water simultaneously at multiple locations. That means you can use hot water in the bathroom while the dishes are being washed in the kitchen without any trouble.
Heat pump water heaters
Heat pump water geysers employ a unique mechanism to provide hot water. Instead of generating heat, they absorb heat from the surroundings and that works to raise the temperature of the water. Such a system of functioning leads to increased efficiency that allows you to save up to 70% on electricity. If you’re looking for a heat pump water heater, check out our domestic heat pump water heater that comes with an intelligent controller that allows you to regulate the water temperature as per your needs. Also, due to its efficient compressor, it enables a fast heat exchange that leaves you with surplus hot water.
Gas water heaters
These types of water heaters employ compressed natural gas (CNG) or LPG as an energy source to heat the water. Out of all the types of water geysers, gas water heaters are widely popular as they are one of the most economical ways to heat water. However, in such geysers, it is crucial to assess the safety aspect very carefully. Make sure you do not purchase any unbranded or low-grade LPG gas geyser as they are not always safe. Invest in a trusted water heater brand that employs the necessary safety features. For instance, we include two solenoid valves and a child lock in our gas geysers to ensure utmost safety. If you buy a gas geyser, ensure that you install it in a well-ventilated area to prevent any mishaps.
Now that you are fully in the know of various kinds of water heaters and their unique advantages, we’re sure it would be easier to buy a geyser online.
