Gas Geyser versus Electric Geyser in Nepal 

Gas geysers or electric geysers for heating water

There is nothing better than taking a long, hot shower to let your body feel refreshed. Whether you’re preparing for the day, or finishing it off; a warm hot shower, especially in winter feels like a luxury. So, the quickest way to get hot water ready for a bath is through storage water geysers. Forget waiting for the water to heat through solar heaters or boiling water in the kitchen and taking it to the bathroom to shower. Gas geysers or electric geysers are a great source for hot water for your bathrooms. 

If you are planning to get a water geyser but aren’t sure whether you’d like to buy a gas geyser or to purchase a water geyser, we can help you to decide.

Here, we compare two types of storage water geysers for winter. Let’s check them out! 

Gas Geysers for Hot Water 

What is a Gas Geyser?

Gas geysers heat up water with the help of LPG gas and provide instant heating. They are attached to an LPG gas cylinder which burns to create heat for the water. Gas geysers consume less energy and are power efficient with quicker heating. The speed in which the water heats up allows for family members to shower one after another and do not have to wait for the water to heat up.

Advantages of a Gas Geyser

A gas water heater geyser is a great choice for those who want to save time or are always in a hurry. They work just like traditional water heaters, but instead of using electricity to produce heat, they use LPG gas to create hot water. They are easier to install and cheaper to operate than electric geysers. Gas geysers recover quickly and can provide an efficient flow of hot water regardless of how rapidly the water is being used.

Disadvantages of a Gas Geyser 

The biggest disadvantage of a gas geyser is the emission. It is not safe to use a gas geyser unless you have a well ventilated bathroom. Along with that, there is the additional labour of installing the LPG gas cylinder and pipes to the gas geyser. This will increase the costing of fitting a gas geyser in your home. 

Electric Geyser for Hot Water 

What is an Electric Geyser?

Electric geysers work by heating water with the help of electricity and copper rods. When the electricity is turned on, the copper is heated, which in turn increases the water temperature.

Advantages of an Electric Geyser

An electric geyser is easy to install and is less complicated in terms of using it. It does not require additional infrastructure and the installation process is easier. By installing an electric geyser in your home, you will also come across less maintenance costs for the geyser.

Disadvantages of an Electric Water Geyser 

However, electric water geysers take a longer time to heat the water and may not be reliable during power outages. If you are in a hurry or need hot water immediately, it can be difficult to rely on an electric water geyser. It can also increase your electricity bill in the long run. 

What is the cost of a Gas geyser and Electric geyser?

When comparing gas geysers with electric geysers, gas geysers are cheaper than electric geysers. At Better, gas geysers are priced at NRs. 7895/- and NRs 8695/-. This is the cost only for the gas geyser and not for the additional cost of setting it up with a LPG gas cylinder.  

Whereas for electric geysers, the prices start at NRs 15095/- and 18095/-.
