I wanted to start a discussion about this with Eskoms 35% increases comming for the next 3 years we all have to think of saving electricity but what is the best option
From all the research I have done a Geyser will account for more than 50% of your monthly electrical bill so it should be one of the first things to make more efficient
There are 3 options from what I have seen
Solar, Heat pump, Gas
I don't really think gas is an option because its quite expensive already so you replace one expensive power for another
So the proper choices are heat pump or Solar
has anyone installed either of these systems
Which is the best and most power efficient one to install
What type of temperatures does the solar geyser get the water up to?
Same question for the heat pump geyser what temperature does it get the water up to?
Has anyone really seen good saving in electricity installing either of these systems
If you install these systems does you geyser ever switch on again of does it just switch on less
What's the cost of these systems and how much do you get from the rebate that Eskom offers do you even get the rebate?
