Consumer VOICE experts compared 25 different electric storage water heaters of 15 brands on basis of capacity, rated power consumption, star rating and other parameters to help you decide on the best water heater (water geyser) as per your requirements.


As we begin to feel the nip in the air, we know that it’s time to also take stock of our winter paraphernalia, beginning from quilts and woollens to electric heating devices including room and water heaters. This report is a result of our efforts to find out the best storage water heater/ geyser as per individual requirements, taking into consideration factors such as water usage, electricity consumption, standing loss, energy efficiency and longevity. By best we mean the one that is not only efficient in terms of electricity consumption or heating capabilities, but also the safest. If you are planning to buy a new geyser, you may very well end up being puzzled by the types of geysers, models and sizes available. What you eventually choose will depend mainly on the purpose of the hot water, where you install the apparatus, bathroom spacing, your preference for instant geyser or storage geyser, and yes, your budget. Just know that just the brand name may not be sufficient to base a buying decision on. While traditional electric water heaters are huge in size and consume high energy, their modern counterparts are relatively energy-efficient and produce hot water as per need. Our Water Heater Buying Guide can help you to decide on the features that are important.
