A hot shower bath after a long day at work is a treat!

However, if the thought of geyser electricity consumption makes you uncomfortable, it’s time to do some research. Let’s take a look at how to calculate geyser electricity consumption, as well as which type of geyser to buy and how to use it effectively.

The following blog will explain how to calculate geyser power consumption and highlight some of the most common yet critical methods for reducing geyser power consumption.

Calculate Geyser Power Consumption

The power rating of a geyser ranges from 500 Watts to 5000 Watts. For example, if the geyser’s associated power is 2000 Watts, the geyser will typically consume 2kW per hour. As a result, it is ideal for a user to select the geyser that best meets his or her daily consumption requirements.

The formula to calculate geyser power consumption is:

Total consumption E(kWh) = Rated Capacity of the geyser * Total Operating hours

Furthermore, the following examples of a 25-litre geyser and a 10-litre geyser can help you understand and calculate geyser power consumption:

  1. Assume Mr A owns an XYZ 25-litre geyser. According to the technical specifications, the geyser consumes 2000W per hour and is typically used for three hours per day. So, according to the formula,

Total consumption will be 2000*3= 6000Wh

Next, the formula to convert Wh to kWh is- 

25-litre geyser power consumption = 6kWh per day

The following is a detailed analysis of the power consumption of a 25-litre geyser:

  1. Mrs. P bought a 10-litre geyser from ABC brand. The 10-litre geyser consumes 2kW per hour, 48kW per day, 1440 kW per month and approx 17520kW per year. If we consider Rs. 3 as per unit rate, the total cost per day will be around Rs. 144.

Below is the power consumption of the geyser per day, per month and per day.

The table above shows the geyser power consumption costing across the year. Now that you know how you can calculate your geyser power consumption, you must also know how to reduce geyser power consumption. The next section of the blog will take you through the top things to take care of to reduce geyser power consumption.

How to Reduce Geyser Power Consumption?

  • Reduce the amount of hot water used for daily tasks such as dishwashing and laundry
  • Take one or two showers instead of multiple showers throughout the day because multiple showers throughout the day require more geyser use, which directly impacts geyser power consumption
  • Choose the geyser size that best meets your hot water requirements. An oversized geyser has the potential to heat more litres of water, increasing geyser power consumption
  • It is advised to choose 5-star rated geysers as they consume less electricity.
  • Check the ideal temperature of your geyser.
  • Choose a geyser timer to help you in turning on and off the appliance at the specified time.
