Geysers are an incredible way to heat your home and make it more comfortable. They’re also very energy-intensive appliances as they need to run all day long. In this article, we’ll explain how much electricity a geyser uses so you can decide whether it’s right for your home!
With the cost of electricity being quite high in Namibia and the price of a geyser being approximately N$1,500, it’s important to know how much electricity a geyser uses.
- The average residence in Namibia uses about 5-kilowatt hours (kWh) per day. This means that if you were to run your geyser continuously all day long, it would consume 75 kWh per week or just over 30000 kWh annually. In other words: If you want to use this appliance on its highest settings with no breaks or interruptions during operation, then expect an annual consumption rate of around 300000 kWh which translates into $120 per month!
Average electricity consumption
The average annual electricity consumption of a geyser is 8,000 kWh.
