Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
In an instant water heater, cold water flows through the inlet pipe. This water is then heated using electric heating elements inside the tank. The water that is now heated rises in the tank and is withdrawn through the outlet pipe. When the hot water tap is turned on, cold water travels through the pipe after which electric heating elements heat the cold water, thereby supplying continuous hot water supply.

Another important factor is its energy consumption as the last thing you want is for your water heater to burn a hole in your pocket. Besides this, take onto consideration the features that your geyser offers.
An electric storage water heater is an appliance that uses a storage tank to increase heating water capacity and provide instant hot water. An electric water heater is ideal for large volume usage as it allows you to store hot water for a while.
Heating water in an electric storage water heater depends upon the capacity of tank and power of heating element of product in consideration

A tankless water heater, also known as electric instant water heater or an instant water geyser, is different from a storage water heater and other traditional water heaters as it does not store hot water. Instead, it heats the water as you use it thus delivering instant hot water on demand. At Racold, we have a wide range of hot water heaters that are both energy efficient and cost friendly. Avail of our tankless water heaters at your nearest store or online.
The difference between traditional water heaters and electric instant water heater lies in its functioning. As soon as you turn on the tap, the flow of the water triggers the water heater to turn on. This enables the heating elements to rapidly heat the water as it passes through the tankless unit. This gives the user instant hot water. The great part about instant water geysers is that the heating elements shut down as soon as you shut off the hot water and so energy is consumed only for the hot water that is being used.
Racold’s Aures water heater has a multipoint usage feature that allows you to use this tankless unit simultaneously in multiple bathrooms or even in your kitchen. However, this is subject to structural and architectural suitability.
Efficient usage and instant cut offs is why an instant water geyser saves more on energy costs. Water heating takes place when the water is on, which cancels out the need to reheat the water when it is not in use. In fact, Racold’s Aures water heater is designed in a way to save up to 30% more energy than other hot water heaters.
Instantly! Our wide range of products are ingrained with supreme technology that allows you to enjoy instant hot water. The hot water from a tankless water heater is continuous unlike in the case of a storage water heater which requires you to wait for it to reheat.
No, you will not be expected to install the geyser by yourself. For a free installation please contact us on our customer care number. Once we receive a call from you, our service engineer will visit you for a free installation and demo of the product.
In a gas water heater, cold water flows into the water heater when the tap is opened. This flow is detected by a sensor that notifies the gas burner. The water flows through a serpentine coil in the heat exchanger that heats the water. This leads to hot water running for your perfect shower experience! You can avail of Racold’s gas geyser online or at a store near you.
At Racold, we believe that the safety is of utmost importance. For this reason, we have created a high quality gas water geyser that has an Auto-Protection feature that automatically protects your geyser against gas leaks. It also has a Double Safety feature with two solenoid valves and Child-Lock that protects children against accidents. You can avail of our gas geyser online or at a store near you.
It is interesting to know that a gas water geyser does not require electricity at all. It uses pipeline natural gas for heating water, thereby making it energy efficient.
Racold’s gas water heater comes with a warranty of 2 years.
Our Racold gas water heater comes in varying capacities of 5 LPM and 6 LPM that is suitable for heating water in domestic huseholds. Its constant feedback ensures constant supply of hot water if the water pressure varies and its auto-timer automatically switches on the water heater after every 20 minutes of continuous operations.
A heat pump water heater relies on a compressor to function. The compressor absorbs the heat from the air and transfers it to the storage tank which enables the water to be heated. Racold’s heat pump water geyser is designed according to European standards to ensure safety and superior conduction of heat.
A heat pump water heater does not create heat but instead uses electricity to absorb heat from the air to transfer it to the water. As it relies on this mechanism, it makes it 2-3 times more energy efficient than traditional water heaters. This also allows you to save up to 70% on electricity. What’s even more interesting is that heat pump water geysers have a tank capacity that is similar to traditional storage geysers so there is no compromise on the amount of hot water.
An important part of a heat pump geyser is the air filter which needs to be cleaned regularly to ensure the smooth functioning of your geyser. With regards to the overall maintenance, it is similar to that of a standard electric water heater.
The best part about a heat pump water heater is that it can be installed just about anywhere – a garage, a bathroom, storage room, etc. However, there are a few things to consider before installing the geyser like the space it will take up. Always check with your technician for the size of the geyser. Next, take into account the noise it may make while heating water, and the amount of cold air in the room. Lastly, consider the size of your family, the bathrooms that this geyser will have to cater to and the approximate amount of hot water you will need on a daily basis.
At Racold, we believe in creating products of high quality especially in terms of durability. Certain features like the magnesium anode protects the water heater and gives it a long life while the titanium plus feature uses titanium enameling for the inner container for greater corrosion resistance against hard water. Our heat pump water heater comes with a 2- years warranty and a dependable service for the inner tank.
A solar geyser relies on solar power, which is a source of renewable energy, to work. For a solar water heater to work it requires a set of solar collectors to absorb the solar energy. These collectors are then connected to an insulated tank that stores the hot water. When the sun is out, water is heated in the solar collectors which is then pumped or flown automatically through the thermosyphon principle to the storage tank.
As a solar geyser works on solar power, it cancels out the need for electricity. Let’s take for example a solar water heating system that has a 100 litre per day capacity. This solar geyser saves up to 1500 units of electricity in a year. However, this is subject to the amount of hot water that has been generated. But what’s more important is that it can also save around 140 litres of diesel thereby reducing CO2 emissions. A solar water heater is very useful in areas that experience power cuts. As this solar water heating system is designed with a storage unit, it can provide hot water as and when required. A solar water heater is an one time investment and a lifetime of savings because it runs on the principle of renewable energy.
As the tank in a Racold solar water heater is insulated with high-density injected PUF insulation, it ensures maximum heat retention. PUF with insulation properties is twice as effective as any other insulation material. This guarantees that the water remains relatively hot.
With Racold’s solar geyser, you will be able to enjoy warm water even during the colder months or when the sky is cloudy. This is due to the diffused radiation readily available in the atmosphere. During winter season, if there is clear sunlight, the water will be hotter. One way of ensuring hot water and direct sunlight throughout the year is by positioning the solar water heater correctly at the time of installation.
No, since solar water heaters are generally installed on rooftops or open grounds (where direct sunlight is available) you are not required to make any plumbing changes.
No, Racold offers installation services. Installation of solar water heaters should be done only by experts. Call our customer service number for more details.
Racold’s range of solar water heaters come with a 5-year warranty along and a dependable service. We also ingrain our products with features that ensure their durability like equipping the water heaters with a Duronox SS 304 L tank that ensures resistance against corrosion, a rustproof Zinc Allu sheet for stronger outer body and a Magnesium Sacrificial Anode that protects the tank from corrosion by forming a layer of magnesium on the inner tank.
