February 19, 2024

In a country like India, where we are known for our diverse climate, having access to a reliable source of hot water has become a necessity. Whether it's for a refreshing morning shower or washing off the day's exhaustion with a warm bath, a water heater is an essential appliance in every Indian household. But with various brands and models available, choosing the best water heater can be a daunting task.

In this blog, we'll talk about how to choose a reliable and sturdy water heater among the multiple options available and how Somany Water Heaters has emerged as a trusted name in the industry with efficient and reliable options.

Water Heater as per the Household Size

The size of your household plays a crucial role in selecting the right water heater. So, select the right size and capacity of your water heater to meet your household's hot water demands. Water heaters are available in a range of sizes and capacities to suit various requirements. For instance, SOMANY's Elise water heater offers a range of capacities such as 3L, 6L, 10L, 15L & 25L suitable for different household sizes, with a square aesthetic and vertical installation. Similarly, the Picardy Neo model provides options in 10L, 15L, 25L, 35L & 50L catering to larger households with its cylindrical design (Vertical & Horizontal). Both models ensure an efficient hot water supply with a voltage of 230V, where Picardy Neo also boasts a wattage of 2000W for rapid heating.

Safety Features

Safety is paramount when it comes to water heaters. So, you must choose a water heater that is equipped with high-end safety features, such as temperature controls, pressure release valves, thermal cut-off switches, single weld line, and PUF Insulation. The Elise and Picardy Neo water heaters from SOMANY elevate safety standards further with their IPX4 rating under the Ingress Protection (IP) system, as defined by the international standard IEC 60529. This classification ensures protection against water splashes, enhancing the product's resilience in wet environments. Additionally, their pressure rating of 8Mpa makes them suitable for high-pressure requirements, offering comprehensive safety and reliability in water heating solutions.

Warranty and Customer Support

Water heater manufacturers offer warranty coverage and customer support. Water heaters typically come with a substantial warranty, giving you peace of mind regarding product quality and durability. SOMANY, for its Picardy Neo and Elise water heaters, offers 8-year warranty on the inner tank, 4-year warranty on the heating element, and a 2-year comprehensive warranty, ensuring long-term reliability and customer satisfaction.

Explore Additional Features

These days, modern water heaters often come with various features designed to enhance convenience and efficiency. Features like Blue Sapphire Enamel Coating, LED Notification, Whirl Flow Technology, Thermal Cut-out, Corrosion Resistant Cabinet, and Digital Controls can make a significant difference in your overall experience. Consider your preferences and lifestyle to determine which features are essential for your water heater.

Energy Efficiency and BEE Standards

One of the most crucial qualities of a water heater is energy efficiency. Water heaters are designed to heat water effectively while minimizing energy consumption. Look for models with a high Energy Factor (EF) rating. Additionally, pay attention the BEE (Bureau of Energy Efficiency) star rating, an Indian standard for energy efficiency. The BEE rating, ranging from 1 to 5 stars, indicates the energy efficiency of an appliance, with higher stars denoting better efficiency. Energy-efficient water heaters not only help you save on utility bills but also contribute to reducing your environmental footprint.

User-Friendly Controls

When selecting a water heater, ease of operation is a crucial factor. Water heaters are equipped with user-friendly controls and displays, ensuring a hassle-free experience. Look for models with clear temperature settings, intuitive interfaces, and convenient adjustment options. These features allow you to manage and control your water heater effortlessly, contributing to a more comfortable and efficient home environment
