Since gas load shedding will be continuing for the foreseeable future, electric water geysers seem to be the best solution to heat water. Selecting the right geyser depends on one’s requirement. Instant geysers are suitable for use in one to two room flats, small shops and businesses. They consume less electricity and there’s no risk of a ruptured tank. They deliver hot water quickly and continue to supply it as long as the tap is open. Its only drawback is that it can only cater to the area that it is installed for, e.g. the kitchen or toilet.

Regular electric geysers are bigger in size and can hold anywhere from 30 to 75 liters of water. They are suitable for use in houses, offices, and corporations. They have better insulation than instant geysers which means they will provide hot water for a longer period of time. On the downside, regular electric geysers consume more electricity than instant geysers, and take more time to warm the water. There are more choices available for it in the market as compared to instant geysers.
