Flipkart's Big Billion Days is here, and you know what that means; mindless shopping for things you don't want but still got it because DISCOUNTS!
But on a more serious note, Big Billion Days is a great time for purchasing. And with the winter season right around the corner, one of those things that you plan on purchasing should definitely be a geyser.
Well, I'll be...
No worries, here at Hometriangle, we think for you, even if you don't. So we have whipped up a list of geysers that will be on sale, technically everything will be on sale, but these geysers, you might wanna take a gander at.
There are 5 geysers that provide great value for your money, but when the sale starts (Midnight of 7th October), these will provide even better value. Or, you know what, you can buy the geysers that were out of your budget earlier, but now are under your budget because of the sale! So the list will contain 3 geysers under Rs 5000/- but will be available for cheaper when the sale starts, and 2 geysers under Rs 7000/-, so that when the sale starts, there's a chance you can get these for under Rs 5000/-
Is there any major differentiating factor? Not really. Usually with technology, the higher you go on price, the lower the gains, it's called the Principle of Diminishing Marginal Returns. Basically, as you go up in price, the benefits that you get are not justified by the hike in price. The most common example is our smartphone. But let's keep that topic for some other time. For now, let's start with the list -1. BAJAJ 5 L Instant Water Geyser (Bajaj Skive 5L 3KW Instant Water Heater, White)
If you are residing in India, chances are, you might have heard of the company called 'Bajaj'. And if you have never heard the name, then, I don't know what to say.
It's a very old and reputed company in the market. Almost everyone knows how reliable Bajaj is as a company (except for the 3 people who didn't know what Bajaj is). So you cannot go wrong with this one.
Here are some of its features:
- Instant Useful for Kitchen, quick water heating
- 5 L Capacity, more the merrier
- 6 Bar: Pressure rating >8 bar is suitable for High Rise buildings
- Vertical: Suitable for large wall spaces
What's that? Your budget is tight but you still want to get a geyser from Bajaj? You're in luck! This one is a 5L geyser, there's an option for a 3L geyser as well! If you can adjust to the small size, that is. The 3L version costs Rs 2,999/-
Else extend your budget a little. There are card offers and even exchanges! If you have an old geyser, just put it up for exchange. But keep 2 things in mind:
- The maximum amount you can levy off is Rs 300/-
- The exchange is only available for the 3L version
Crompton also ranks as one of the best-rated geysers amongst customers. Some of its features are -
- Quick water heating
- 3 L Capacity, compact in size
- 6.5 Bar: Pressure rating >8 bar is suitable for High Rise buildings
- Suitable for large wall spaces
For this particular model, both the 3L and 5L units are up for the exchange, although the amount remains the same for each, i.e Rs 300/-
The 5L version costs Rs 3,699/- pre-sale. Even if there's no straight price cut, you can still use bank offers to bring the effective price down. So keep an eye out for this one.3. Hindware 3 L Storage Water Geyser (Immedio, White & Blue)
Hindware is to geyser, what maruti is to cars. Basically meaning, it's a very reputed company that has been on the market for a long time now. Some of the features in this model are -
- Stainless Steel Tank
- Copper Heating Element
- Express Heating for Instant Hot water
This is probably the most versatile geyser on the list due to the sheer number of options available.
It comes in 3L, 5L, 6L, 10L, 15L, and 25L models. Yep.
Now, it is niche for them to keep a 5L and 6L model. They should straight up just cancel the 6L variant. You'll agree with me, especially after knowing the price of the 6L variant.
The price of the 5L variant is Rs 3,299/- reasonable, right? Now comes the 6L variant, which one might assume, oh it's only 1L more, probably costs like 500 to 1000 more.
The 6L variant costs a whopping Rs 5,049/- creating a delta of about Rs 1,750/- in just 1L. Apart from this, the pricing is pretty normal with the 10L variant costing Rs 5,224/-, the 15L variant costing Rs 5,999/- and the 25L variant costing Rs 6,159/-
You can apply card offers on these, to get them to an even lower price. Personally, we'd like to suggest this model if you are trying to get the best value out of your money. For only 6k, you'll get a geyser with 25L of capacity! That's no joke!4. BAJAJ 25 L Storage Water Geyser Suitable for large wall spaces (Popular Plus 25 L, White)
To no one's surprise, the top-rated geyser on Flipkart is by Bajaj.
If you have a budget of about 7k, this one is a no-brainer. Here are some of its features -
- Child Safety Mode
- Magnesium Anode
- Swirl Flow Technology
- Titanium Armour Technology
The particular model shown above is the 25L version. But there are two more versions, in case you don't want the 25L version.
There's the 10L and 15L version. The former one costs Rs 5,899 and the latter one costs Rs 5,999.
Include the card offers and exchange offers, and you might just get this one for under Rs 6k!5. HAVELLS 10 L Storage Water Geyser with Flaxi Pipe and Free Installation
Last, but certainly not least, is Havells. Yes, the same company that has one of its feet in the electrical field.
Some of its features are -
- High-Density PUF Insulation
- Colour Changing LED Indicator
- Incoloy Glass Coated
If you can and are willing to increase the budget a little, you cannot go wrong with Havells. They not only provide a free installation, but if at any point of time you are facing any issues, you can just call their toll-free number and ask for assistance.
Now, there are much better, costlier geysers available, sure, but there's really no need to spend any more than what's shown in this list to be blunt. If you want to, sure, go right ahead and purchase the fancy geysers. But seeing how India is a very price-conscious market, these 5 should be more than enough for your day-to-day work.
