Choose the right geyser for you

What is the difference between instant and storage geysers?

There are many of us who probably can’t do without hot water baths, no matter what the season – scorching summers or freezing winters. Hot water baths offer the ultimate comfort and help you unwind the day. While you can’t always heat your water on a cooktop, it is when you need a geyser. Geysers instantly provide you with hot water without waiting, so you can have a comfortable bath or cleaning sessions. But we often get confused between an instant geyser and a storage geyser while choosing one. Hence, to get you out of this worry, we are here to tell you the difference between the two so that you can make the right choice.

What are geysers and how do they work?

Before going ahead, let’s take a look at just what geysers are and how they work. Geysers are electronic appliances designed to allow for a constant flow of hot water for various domestic purposes, such as bathing, dishwashing, and cleaning. They either heat water using a heating element or gas burners. Geysers are useful, but when choosing one for your home, it’s important to consider capacity, energy efficiency, and fuel source, as well as the type.

Now, geysers are of two main types – storage and instant geysers. Confused, which one is the right one for you? Read on.

Difference between instant geysers and storage geysers

Let’s deep dive to know how different these geysers are in terms of functionality and other factors.

Instant geysers

Instant geysers, also known as tankless water heaters, heat water as it passes through the device, making them both energy-effective, while also allowing for space-saving. They are perfect for small families that have a limited living space. Also called tankless or on-demand water heaters, instant geysers have grown in popularity due to how effectively and conveniently they produce hot water. They heat water as it flows through the appliance, providing hot water immediately whenever necessary.

Energy efficiency is one of their main benefits. Instant geysers reduce standby energy loss by only heating water when a hot tap is opened. This allows for lower electricity usage and bills, as well as a smaller environmental impact. Due to their compact design and ability to be installed closer to the point of usage, they are perfect for neutral families and small homes.

Storage geysers

Storage geysers on the other hand, store and heat a specific volume of water in a tank, assuring a constant supply of hot water. These appliances have an insulated tank where warm water is kept until needed. Their capacity to simultaneously distribute hot water to several outlets makes them ideal for larger families, which is one of their key advantages. However, because the water in the tank needs to be kept hot all the time, they often use more energy owing to standby heat loss. Storage geysers are available in various sizes to meet diverse hot water needs, but they could take up more installation area than instant geysers.

At the end of the day, the question of which one to choose boils down purely to personal preferences, and factors including budget, space, household size and needs.
