Types of Gas Geysers

There are 3 main gas geyser types

  • Standard or manual gas geysers
  • Constant temperature gas geysers
  • Forced fan gas geysers

Standard/Manual Gas Geysers

Standard or manual gas geysers are great if you only need one tap with hot water and live in a small flat or single-storey home.

Sizes of standard (manual) geysers range from 6 litres to 20 litres and are perfect if you live alone and are on a budget.

Pros and cons of standard gas geysers include: 

  • Cost-effective water heating solution
  • Easy to operate 
  • Can set to winter or summer water temperatures
  • Cannot provide hot water to multiple taps
  • Not able to set at a specific temperature
  • Unable to supply water upstairs
  • Sensitive to water pressure fluctuations
  • Require a weather cover 
  • Must be installed with a flue pipe

Constant Temperature Gas Geysers

Constant temperature gas geysers allow you to set your water at an exact temperature. They are very similar to standard gas geysers, but they have a keypad where you can set your water temperature.
