Geysers

 

Bosch Gas Geysers provide the following benefits:

  • Efficient: Reduce your electricity bill by as much as 40%. Ideal for infrequent use areas like kitchens and spare-rooms where conventional geysers waste energy keeping a geyser full of water hot.
  • Powerful:  However large or small your hot water requirements are – Bosch has the appliance with the output to suit.
  • Economical:  Instantaneous water heaters only use energy when hot water is used.
  • Safe: Our built-in safety devices: prevents gas leaks if there is no flame, switch off the appliance if the exhaust is not functioning properly, and a Temperature limiter protects the heat exchanger against overheating.
  • Convenient: Hot water wherever and whenever needed.
  • User and environmentally friendly: With battery and hydro ignition options. Hydo ignition – an innovation by Bosch, requires no batteries, and no manual start-up. You simply have to open the hot water tap: as green as it gets.
  • Compact: Attractive and compact design saves space and makes these appliances ideal for both old and new properties.
  • Versatile: Choose the size and gas type (natural gas or LPG) that is right for you.
  • Hydro Generator Ignition: A small turbine provides the power needed to power the igniters and open the gas solenoid. This removes the necessity of using batteries giving years of reliable service.

What is a Gas Geyser or no-tank Gas Water Heater?
The replacement for the conventional electric or solar geyser that only heats water when you need it
This means that your supply of hot water is available only when you need it. It also saves money on energy costs by not reheating the geyser when not in use.
These gas water heaters come in different litres – please ask a Delta Gas Consultant to advise.

Advantages of a Gas Water Heater:
• Instant Heat
• Requires a small space
• No more over flushed ceilings
• No residue at the bottom of a geyser
• Long Lifespan
• Cost-effective

Use a Gas Geyser or change to a Gas Water Heater today! With the rising costs of electricity and conventional methods of heating, a gas geyser can save you money month on month. With a gas water heater, you are not paying for your geyser to be kept hot all the time as the gas geyser works with a pulse igniter that ignites the instant you open your hot water tap. Similarly the second you close the hot water tap your gas water heater stops, giving you hot water on demand. This is the most efficient method of hot water systems.

You only pay to heat the water you use. No stored hot water, significantly reducing yearly running costs.

Endless Hot Water
The gas water heater can shower continuously (As long as there is gas and battery available, they never run out)

Space Saving, Compact Size
The gas water heater is much smaller than standard storage water heaters, it provides faster greater installation flexibility and requires much less floor or wall space around the home.

Environmental Friendly
Direct use of gas is a cleaner process that generates much less waste. When electricity is generated from burning gas in a thermal power station up to 67% of the energy can be wasted. When heating water with gas in your home as little as 6% of the energy is wasted.

Remote Water Controller
Controls are an optional extra. Remote controls allow you to control required temperature and even bath-fill.

Safety Features
There are a number of safety features incorporated such as heat exchanger thermistor, hot water outlet thermistor, flame rod, over heat switch, fusible link, water pressure relief valve, electrical fuse and surge protector, boil dry prevention, combustion fan RPM check and temperature cut out.

Smartstart Built-in Pump

Closed loop piping system and temperature controller is required as to preheat the return water in the pipe in order to save water that often washed into the drain. The Smartstart is an “on demand” pump system that preheats the water in the pipes before you turn on the hot tap.

Gas Water Heaters (GWH) have been called many different names in the past; gas geysers, instant water heaters, push-through geysers, tankless water heaters etc. These units have been around for decades and are the preferred method of efficiently heating water around the world. Why – because they heat water on demand, only as you turn on the hot tap will the unit start to produce hot water, meaning extremely high efficiency and very little heat loss. Gas water heaters are measured by the ‘flow rate’ of hot water they can deliver bathroom-dreams.

The older traditional gas water heaters provided between 11-18 L/m, enough for single use (1 tap at a time). Paloma gas water heating units come in 20 & 26 L/m which allow for multi-point use (dependent on climate) with up to 3 taps/showers used at any one time.

Over the years, gas water heaters have developed greatly with Paloma leading the way in computer controlled high efficiency gas water heaters. Paloma’s Gas Water Heaters are specifically tailored to suit the South African climate.

FLAME DANCER™
The Flame Dancer grates are Infiniti’s newer grates. They have a flame that exits the grate in a vertical sheet of flame about 100mm high, if left uncovered. The design of the burner creates a flame that dances, hence its name. If covered the flame effect will spread across more of the grate and give a more traditional look.

The Infiniti Flame Dancer grates were designed to give not only stunning modernistic looks but even more importantly, VERY low emissions.

These industry leading low emissions are very beneficial in terms of:

  •  A virtually odorless grate
  • A very safe grate with the lower amounts of Carbon Monoxide/Dioxide produced
  • A more efficient grate as more of the carbon in the fossil fuel is converted in the combustion process to usable heat.

Flame Dancer grates are available in the following fuel effects:

  • Burner uncovered
  • White or black stone chips around the burner
  • Natural white stones around the burner
  • Stainless Steel Base plate. This gives an amazing reflection of the dancing flame, fantastic for modern homes
  • Burner covered
  • White or black chips around the burner, natural white stones over the burner
  • Natural white stones around and over the burner
