 As winters have arrived, geyser is a need of every house. However, with many brands available in the market, one must be wondering that which brand of geyser to choose?

Consumer Voice bought the top selling brands – 11m, and sent them to an NABL-certified laboratory to test their technical efficiencies and also appointed an expert panel to adjudge then on other physical features and aesthetics.

According to the test report, the Consumer Voice recommends ‘Venus’ in terms of performance followed by Racold and Crompton. Though all the brands tested by Consumer Voice are energy-efficient and rated 5 stars, however, Bajaj is comparatively more energy-sufficient.

The test was conducted after taking the key parameters into consideration which include BEE star ratings, hot water output, reheating time, water storage capacity, mixing factor, deviation from the dial calibration, cyclic temperature, power cord length and quality, safety, packaging, marking, aesthetics, design and workmanship.

In performance tests, Raciold and Venus scored high, followed by Khaitan, Inalsa and Crompton Greaves. In safety tests, Venus topped the chart followed by Racold. While in quality tests, Venus topped the chart followed by Bajaj and Crompton Greaves. Interestingly, capacity of Maharaja Whiteline geyser is less than the rated capacity – at 23.3 litres against 25 litres.

Havells, Kenstar, Maharaja and Usha are found to be slightly higher than their claims for standing loss, but remain within the 5 stars rating limit. Reheating time is lower in racold. At 14.1 kg, venus is the heaviest geyser, Inalsa at 8.8 kg is the lightest.
