Why you should consider a solar-powered geyser

People are looking for alternative energy sources as electricity prices continue to rise and the grid remains unstable. And, because geysers are notorious for consuming the most electricity, finding an affordable alternative offers several benefits. Solar-powered geysers generate electricity from the sun to heat your water.

How do solar-powered geysers work?

Solar-powered geysers use the sun’s energy to heat your water rather than traditional electricity. While solar-powered geysers are standard in many newly built homes, they are easy to install in existing homes.

These are some of the reasons why you should consider installing a solar-powered geyser in your home.

Reduce your electricity bill by half

Your geyser consumes a lot of energy, even though you only use it to heat water a few times a day. Installing a solar-powered geyser will immediately reduce your monthly electricity bill by as much as 50%.

You will always have hot water

In South Africa, load shedding is a common occurrence and often happens on short notice. By installing a solar-powered geyser, you will not only have a consistent source of hot water, but you will also be helping to relieve the pressure on the local energy supplier.

You care about the environment

If you care about the environment, it is critical to reduce your carbon footprint to preserve our planet. A solar-powered geyser is an excellent first step in making a change. And since we have an abundance of sunshine almost all year round, there’s no excuse not to harness the rays for good.

Choosing the best geyser for your home

Many people find it challenging to choose a household appliance because the market is flooded with possibilities, and you might not know which is the best option. As a result, many consumers purchase the wrong product and later regret it.

One such challenge is choosing the best geyser for your home. Selecting the best geyser needs some knowledge about what you need. Aside from the geyser, Geyser Man Plumbing offers geyser maintenance services and repair when you need them.

Before purchasing a geyser, you should consider the following features:

Auto-off/auto cut: One of the essential characteristics of a geyser is auto-off/auto cut. When the water is sufficiently heated, the geyser switches off. The heat levels on the geyser can be changed on the thermostat. The auto cut feature saves energy and is convenient because you don’t need to switch it on and off repeatedly. It also increases the life of the geyser by reducing the amount of wear and tear on the heating elements.

Energy consumption: The amount of energy used by geysers could impact their efficacy. A geyser with a five-star rating will save the most energy. Hover, energy savings must not come at the price of decreased efficiency. Determine which model combines energy savings and efficiency while producing the best output for the given input.

Type of geyser: Geysers are categorised into two kinds: tank-type and tankless-type. Tank geysers are less expensive but consume more energy, while tankless geysers consume less energy but are more expensive. Most homeowners favour the tank-type geyser, and the kind you choose will be determined mainly by the amount of water you require.

After-sales service: After-sales service is crucial, especially for gas geysers. Gas geyser repair services are frequently necessary since these geysers require routine maintenance. As a result, the after-sales services supplied by your geyser provider are crucial and should be at the top of your list when selecting an appropriate geyser for your home.
