Does switching off the geyser damage it?
Furthermore, what happens if geyser is not switched off?
when there is no water supply you will not get hot water even if the electric supply is on. But the thermostat will keep heating water stored in the tank and will switch off on reaching set temperature. This process keeps continuing as long as the power supply is not switched off.
Also Know, when should I turn my geyser off? So switching the geyser off when hot water is not required and switching it on an hour or so before hot water is needed will cut the amount of electricity used.
Besides, how can I reduce the power consumption of my geyser?
Geyser use: how to reduce energy consumption and save
- Most electric geyser thermostats are set to temperatures that are higher than necessary.
- Rather use cold water to wash your hands or brush your teeth, and take short showers instead of baths.
- Using an energy- and water-saving showerhead can help reduce your hot water usage by up to 24%.
