If you can’t decide between a solar or gas geyser, we will help you narrow things down:
Gas geysers are most suited for high-demand homes. We all know the feeling of being last in line for the shower, only to get hit with cold water when you open the hot water tap. This is terrible, especially in the middle of winter. When functioning correctly, gas geysers never “run out” of hot water. As long as the gas canister has adequate supply, your entire extended family can count on having a good, hot shower. You might have a hefty water bill if they all take their time, however.
If you live in an area that doesn’t get reliable solar radiation (direct sunlight) to keep a solar geyser warm, a gas geyser is your best option if you want to be off-grid. You can have a hot shower any time of the night or day. Many people opt for a combination of these two, since you will have the best of both worlds. Here, you get a hot solar shower in the early evenings and hot gas shower in the early mornings when the solar geyser is cold.
How Does It Work?
Gas geysers differ from other types of geysers in that it doesn’t have a reservoir. Instead, water flows through a pipe that runs over a flame. When there is an adequate change in water pressure, the geyser switches on by igniting a gas flame; this happens when you open the hot water tap quickly and thoroughly. You can always close it a bit later on. When you close the valve completely, the flame is turned off again. This means that you only use gas when the hot water tap is actually in use. But don’t worry about the technicalities. Plumber Midrand has got your back.
One thing you should consider carefully is water pressure. If your shower fitting is highly water-efficient, it will throttle the flow of water to your shower. This, in turn, may dampen the effect on the sensor, preventing the gas geyser from switching on in the first place. We will advise you on the best fittings to use with your new installation.
