    GAS VS ELECTRICITY Eskom's ongoing saga of price increases & load shedding has generated a lot of calls to us asking if gas really is an economical option to electricity.  When it comes to gas geysers, they will always be more economical than electric geysers simply because they only use gas when someone is actually using hot water (they don't have a tank of water that needs heating). Confusion regarding gas consumption figures for gas geysers arises because the public don't know how the consumption figures are calculated. Gas consumption is measured by opening a hot tap as WIDE AS IT CAN GO, & it is run like this for a FULL HOUR. Naturally, no one in the real world ever runs a geyser like this - it is purely for measurement purposes.  There are two different categories of gas geysers - 'Manual Geysers' & 'Forced Fan Geysers'. All gas geysers have rows of gas burners in them to heat the water up. The bigger the geyser size, the more gas burners they have. Manual gas geysers (like Bosch 6l - 18l geysers , & Atlas 6l - 20l geysers) have no electronics in them & are not able to modulate the amount of gas burners they switch on according to demand for water - their gas burners are either all on, or all off. Often, the most used tap in the house is the kitchen tap, which only uses 6-8l / minute of water so it can be more gas efficient to install a small geyser for the kitchen & a separate larger one for the bathrooms. Forced Fan gas geysers are the most gas efficient of gas geysers. The Paloma geysers, for example, have heat sensors in their water inlet pipes & flow sensors in their outlet pipes, which work together to allow the geyser to modulate the most optimum amount of gas burners being used . The geyser will instantly react to any decrease/ increase in hot water demand, making these one of the most gas efficient geysers on the market. To be able to do this, these geysers must have a 220v plug point to be able to run their electronic control systems (draw between 60-80 watts & only when in use). During a power failure, the geyser will be an alternative power source (eg UPS/Inverter/ Solar/ Generator).  Gas geysers are not an off-the-shelf product & it is important to get advice specific for your needs, or you may end up with a geyser which is not fit-for-purpose & will be a major source of irritation to you! For more information, visit http://www.giveitgas.co.za or contact us on (011) 646 9439/ penny@giveitgas.co.za

    WHICH GAS GEYSER TO USE FOR ONE BATHROOM Gas geysers will always be more cost effective than electric geysers, because they only use gas when someone is using hot water. There are a couple of different sizes of gas geysers applicable for single-storey houses with one bathroom:- * If the bathroom has a bath, the smallest gas geyser recommended is a 12l geyser - otherwise the bath takes too long to fill & uses more gas because it is on for longer. Our preferred choices are an Atlas 12l geyser (R2,970.00 incl vat) or a Bosch 14l geyser (R4,100.00 incl vat).
    * If the bathroom has a shower, & the shower head is small to medium in size, we recommend at least a 10l geyser. Our preferred choices are an Atlas 10l (R2,150.00 incl vat) or a Bosch 14l geyser (R4,100.00 incl vat).
    * If the shower has a large rain-type shower head , the geysers recommended will be either the Atlas 16l geyser (R3,650.00 incl vat) or a Bosch 18l geyser (R5,400.00 incl vat).  All of the above geysers must be fitted with a flue pipe (similar to a chimney pipe & fits on top of the geyser) - R300.00 for Atlas/ R350.00 for Bosch, & a weather cover (from R780.00 incl vat). Most gas geysers are installed on an outside wall. If the geyser is installed indoors, the flue pipe must by law exit the building (via an exterior wall or via the roof).  Delivery of a geyser & flue pipe within JHB/PTA is R200.00 (incl vat). Delivery is the following working day after payment reflects in our account. For the warranty on your geyser to be valid, the geyser must be installed by a qualified gas installer who will issue you a Certificate of Compliance when the job is complete. Atlas geysers have a 1 year warranty. Bosch geysers have a 2 year warranty.  For more information visit http://www.giveitgas.co.za or contact us on (011) 646 9439/ penny@giveitgas.co.za

    ALL ZERO GAS STOVES NOW HAVE FLAME FAILURE DEVICES IN THE OVEN Zero Appliances sell a range of budget 4-burner & 6-burner gas stoves, & all are now fitted with Flame Failure Devices in the oven. These stoves may not be installed on a fixed gas line ie the gas cylinder for the stove MUST be freestanding next to the stove & the cylinder may not supply any other gas appliance other than the stove. If the gas cylinder is put into a cupboard or outside the kitchen, this qualifies as an installation & is illegal. Providing that the gas cylinder is freestanding next to the stove, you do not need a gas installer to set the stove up for you.  The 4-burner gas stoves do not have a grill in the oven. This means that they only have gas burners at the bottom of the oven & none at the top. This is fine for cooking meat/ veggies/ pasta/ muffins etc but not for baking cakes or other light pastries, which need heat from above & below.  The 6-burner gas stove does have gas burners at the top & bottom of the oven. Prices of Zero Gas Stoves :-

    GAS GEYSERS & 'HARD WATER'/ BOREHOLE WATER Water is considered “hard” when it contains any appreciable amount of minerals, especially calcium and magnesium. It becomes obvious that water is hard when pot of boiling water forms white residue on the sides and bottom of the pot. A more accurate assessment can be made by laboratory water testing. The minerals in hard water can build up on the inside of plumbing pipes, in fixtures like toilets and sinks. Hard water shortens the life of plumbing and fixtures. The coating of minerals in plumbing and fixtures is called “scale.” The formation of scale is even more pronounced when water is heated. Scale build up in a gas geyser prevents efficient transfer of heat from the heating element or flame to the water to be heated. In other words, it costs more to heat water and the geyser will not last as long if the water is hard. Built up minerals in a geyser can be so bad as to take up space that should contain hot water, making the holding capacity of the heater less than it should be. Gas geysers work by putting a flame under the water tank/ heat exchanger. Mineral deposits build up in the bottom of the tank/ exchanger causing it to overheat. A sudden boiling action causes the mineral deposits to be lifted up into the water. This makes a rumbling noise. There are several ways to deal with problems related to hard water and the water geysers. One is to install a water softener in the plumbing so that minerals are removed from the water before the water enters the water heater. If the softener is installed as a whole house system, it should stop most of the problems in all of the fixtures, not just the gas geyser. Water softeners require regular maintenance so be prepared for the added chore. Another way to deal with hard water is to drain and flush the geyser tank/ heat exchanger on a regular basis. In areas with particularly hard water, this should be done as often as every two or three months, but most manufacturers suggest maintenance every six months. The procedure is time consuming, but essential:-
    1) The geyser must be turned off.
    2) A hose is screwed onto the water outlet and an inlet is opened at the top of the tank to let in air. This allows the tank to drain.
    3) After the water is gone, the tank must be flushed out, sometime several times, until the water runs clear again. It is best to flush the geyser with a water & white vinegar solution. Clear water indicates that the mineral deposits have been flushed out.
    4) The tank/ heat exchanger must then be refilled, turned on again, and the air bled out of the pipes.
    5) If the geyser is old or if it has not been regularly maintained, all that action may rupture the heat exchanger, which is usually cause for buying a new water heater. For many people, draining and flushing the hot water tank every few months is just not worth the trouble. That brings us to the third option. Some people do nothing and accept that they will need to replace the water heater more frequently than if it was maintained with regular flushing.  No matter what you plan to do about it, it pays to be aware of a hard water problem. At least that way you can choose a way to deal with it instead of having it choose you. NOTE: Most brands of gas geysers do not cover damage by Hard Water under the warranties on their gas geysers.  For more information , please contact us on (011) 646 9439/ penny@giveitgas.co.za

    IMPORTANCE OF CHECKING YOUR GAS REGULATOR If your gas geyser is struggling to ignite, or it does ignite but switches off a few seconds later, it may be that the regulator on your gas cylinder is faulty & needs replacing.  The obvious things to trouble-shoot with gas geysers are the batteries (if it is a manual geyser) & the amount of gas left in the cylinders. If these two things are in order, it is important to check the regulator.  The LP Gas in a cylinder is at a far greater pressure than household appliances can manage. The job of the regulator is to reduce this pressure down to a pressure that the appliance can manage , & maintain a stable flow of gas to the appliance.  Regulators have a diaphragm in them, which is a flexible rubber disc that responds to pressure changes and functions to regulate the flow of gas to the proper pressure.
    The diaphragm works in combination with springs and other parts within the regulator. Age, amount of use & dirt/ residue in the gas can all damage the Regulator over time.
    A faulty Regulator can stop gas flow completely, or send through gas in insufficient amounts, or in a worst case situation it may let through large bursts of gas (usually causes a very big flame in a geyser which can damage the geyser).  Gas Regulators do not last forever & must be replaced every 2 years or so. As the saying goes, 'you get what you pay for' so we don't recommend buying the cheapest regulator you can find.  For more information please visit http://www.giveitgas.co.za or contact us on (011) 646 9439 / penny@giveitgas.co.za

    WATER-SAVER SHOWER HEADS & GAS GEYSERS Water-Saver shower heads can cause problems for Standard/ Manual Gas Geysers.  If your geyser is producing overly hot water for a couple of minutes, & then when you add cold water the water flow goes completely cold, the most likely cause of this is your Water-Saver shower head.  Water-Saver shower heads generally restrict water flow to about 6-8l per minute. If your gas geyser is larger than 8l / minute the geyser will be trying to push through a higher volume of water than the shower head will allow through. This causes a back-flow of hot water to the geyser, which in turn causes the geyser to switch off. When a gas geyser switches off, it doesn't stop all water flow....it only stops the hot water, hence the shower water becomes cold.  To test if your Water-Saver shower head is the problem, run the shower without the shower head attached  Forced Fan/ Advanced Gas Geysers are not affected by Water-Saver shower heads,  For more information visit http://www.giveitgas.co.za or contact us on (011) 646 9439/ penny@givveitgas.co.za

    WHERE TO POSITION YOUR GAS GEYSER Where to position your gas geyser depends on which type of gas geyser you have & how far away it will be from the taps it is supplying with hot water. In addition to this, there are legal restrictions on where your geyser can be positioned in relation to windows/ roofing/ electrical conduits etc. In general however , you want your geyser as close to the bathrooms as possible, or at least at a midway point between bathrooms & the kitchen.  The longer the water piping between the geyser & the taps it is supplying, the more water temperature & water pressure loss there is through the piping (especially in winter). Equally, the longer the water pipes, the more cold water has to be pushed through before the hot water reaches the taps......a waste of water & gas.  If your geyser is a Standard / Manual geyser (eg Atlas 6l to 20l geysers / Bosch 6l to 18l geysers), it will not be able to successfully send hot water more than 6-8m away from the geyser without significant temperature & pressure loss. If the distance between your bathrooms is greater than 6-8m you will need to install more than one gas geyser. These geysers are not able to supply upstairs bathrooms with hot water.  If your geyser is an Advanced / Forced Fan model (eg Atlas 20l FF/ Paloma/ Bosch Optiflow/ Bosch Thermo 27l), it will be able to send hot water 15-20m from the geyser with no water pressure loss. These geysers can be programmed for exact temperatures, so any temperature loss through water piping can be compensated for by increasing the temperature of the geyser (this does of course mean the geyser uses more gas). Wastage of water though long water piping must also be considered. Advanced/ Forced Fan geysers can supply double & triple storey buildings with hot water.  Your gas installer will be able to advise you on all the legal requirements of where to position your geyser & gas cylinders.  For more information please visit http://www.giveitgas.co.za or contact us on (011) 646 9439/ penny@giveitgas.co.za

    HAPPY BATH TIMES WITH ATLAS 16L ZERO START GEYSER A problem that comes up with Standard/ Manual Gas Geysers is the water pressure & temperature drop when a 2nd hot tap is switched on. The Atlas 16l Zero Start/ Constant Temperature geyser solves this issue.  Originally designed for situations with very low water pressure (like farms on borehole water), the Atlas 16l Zero Start/ Constant Temperature geyser is also very useful in normal urban residential situations. The Constant Temperature feature means that the geyser can maintain temperature when a 2nd hot tap in the house is switched on.  The price of the geyser is R4,500.00 (incl vat) & the geyser must be fitted with a flue pipe (R300.00 incl vat). If the geyser will be positioned where it will be rained on, it will also need a weather cover (R830.00 incl vat).  The Atlas 16l Zero Start/ Constant Temperature geyser carries a 1 year warranty. All gas geysers must be installed by a qualified & registered gas installer or the geyser's warranty will be invalidated . Failure to use a qualified gas installer will also be in breach of Household Insurance regulations. For more information visit http://www.giveitgas.co.za or contact us on (011) 646 9439/ penny@giveitgas.co.za

    STANDARD VS FORCED FAN GAS GEYSERS  Broadly speaking, there are two categories of gas geysers sold in SA - Standard Gas Geysers & Forced Fan Gas Geysers. Standard Gas Geysers are mostly battery ignited, & are cheaper than Forced Fan Geysers. Their prices range from R1,495.00 (incl vat) for an Atlas 6l geyser, to R5,1000.00 (incl vat) for a Bosch 18l geyser. Standard Gas Geysers must be be fitted with a flue pipe (from R300.00 incl vat) & a weather cover (from R870.00 incl vat). These geysers come with a few quirks but are generally good for smaller single storey homes running on municipal water. They cannot supply upstairs bathrooms & struggle in areas where water pressure is low or fluctuates. Standard Gas Geysers have minimal temperature control adjustment & are directly affected by the incoming water temperature. They have no electronic control systems & cannot regulate how many of their gas burners they switch on according to hot water demand, so they have to switch on all their burners every time (regardless of whether only a kitchen tap is running or 2x showers).  Forced Fan Gas Geysers have electronic control systems to ignite & run the geyser, & must have a 220v plug point (only draw 60-80 watts & only when hot water is being used). These geysers can run multiple hot taps at the same time (varies depending on type of geyser). The geysers range in price from R9,900.00 (incl vat) for the Paloma 20l to R17,050.00 (incl vat) for the Bosch Thermo 27l. Forced Fan geysers are able to regulate the amount of gas burners switched on according to hot water demand, as well as according to incoming water temperature, making them very gas efficient. The geysers can operate at low water pressure, are not affected by fluctuating water pressure or mixer taps, can supply double storey homes, are fully weatherproof (no weather cover needed) & don't use flue pipes. Most Forced Fan Geysers can be connected directly onto a solar water system as a back-up. All gas geysers must be installed by a qualified gas installer.  For more information visit http://www.giveitgas.co.za or contact us on (011)646 9439 / penny@giveitgas.co.za

    CAMPING GAS GEYSERS VS HOUSEHOLD GAS GEYSERS We are often asked by customers whether they can use a Camping Geyser for household use, or whether they can use a Household geyser for camping.  Camping Gas Geysers are generally 5-6l/ per minute in capacity & don't have a flue pipe. Any geyser being used indoors (eg in a bathroom) must by law have a flue pipe fitted which exits the building. The only legal way a Camping Gas Geyser can be used for household use is to position it outside the bathroom window, & run the water pipe through the window. THESE GEYSERS ARE NOT DESIGNED FOR DAILY HOUSEHOLD USE. They run on approximately 0.5 - 1 bar water pressure (usually via a 12v water pump). Normal municipal water pressure is approx 3 bar, & consistent use of this level of water pressure will cause damage to the Camping Geyser.  Standard Household Gas Geysers must be installed against a wall or solid frame, & need a flue pipe (between 1.2- 1.6m long) fitted to the ,top of the geyser. The ideal water pressure for these geysers is between 1.5 bar - 3 bar so if used for camping it will be important to make sure your 12v pump can produce this sort of water pressure. Household geysers will generate a lot of heat through the exhaust vent so they cannot be put against a surface which will be damaged by heat.  For more information & prices visit http://www.giveitgas.co.za or contact us on (011) 646 9439/ penny@giveitgas.co.za

    GAS GEYSER CONSUMPTION OF GAS In the process of changing over from an electric geyser to a gas geyser, most people understandably want to know what the gas consumption is of a gas geyser.  There is a good reason we don't put these figures on our website......it's because most people don't know how gas consumption is calculated & go into panic mode when they read the figures.  To calculate gas usage on a gas geyser, a hot tap is opened as WIDE as it possibly can be, & it is run like this for a full HOUR. In the real world, no one ever does this (unless the geyser is being used for industrial purposes).  Standard Gas Geysers (Atlas 6l-20l & Bosch 6l-18l) have no electronic control systems & their gas burners are either all on or all off, regardless of whether a basin tap is being used or a bath is being filled. Advanced/ Force Fan geysers (Paloma/ Bosch Optiflow & Thermo/ Atlas 20l Forced Fan) do have electronics & are able to regulate gas consumption according to hot water demand.  Please feel free to contact us for gas consumption figures on penny@giveitgas.co.za / (011) 646 9439

    FLUE PIPE.......DOES MY GEYSER HAVE TO HAVE ONE? All Standard Gas Geysers must be fitted with a flue pipe, regardless of whether the geyser is installed outdoors, or indoors. The function of a flue pipe is to draw out the Carbon Dioxide that the gas burners in the geyser are producing. Without a flue pipe the CO2 gas sinks down into the geyser & smothers the gas burners. This will cause the geyser to automatically switch off for safety reasons. The flue pipe will also draw out excess heat, & stop the geyser from overheating. In drawing out the CO2 gas & excess heat, the flue pipe also allows the geyser to draw in more oxyen. Geysers installed outdoors generally use a vertical flue pipe, with a Cowl/ Chinese Hat on the top. Houses with thatch roofing will need an Elbow flue pipe - this is a flue pipe with a 90 degree bend in it which directs the heat produced by the geyser away from the thatch roof.  Gas geysers installed indoors must, by law, have a flue pipe which exits the building (either via an exterior wall or through the roof - may not end in the ceiling).  Brands of gas geysers which must be fitted with a flue pipe include:- Atlas (6l/ 8l/ 10l/ 12l/ 16l/ 20l )
    Bosch (6l/ 11l/ 14l/ 18l )
    Delta/ Dewhot/ Kexin/ Kwikhot/ Zero/ etc Advanced Gas Geysers/ Forced Fan Geysers like Paloma / Bosch (Optiflow & W2) / Rinnai do not use flue pipes unless the geyser is installed indoors. All gas geysers must be installed by a qualified gas installer or the warranty on the geyser will not be valid . For more information & prices please visit http://www.giveitgas.co.za or contact us on (011) 646 9439 / penny@giveitgas.co.za
