How does a gas geyser work?
Different parts of gas geyser
- Heat Exchanger
- Flow sensor
- gas geyser inlet-outlet pipes
Now, let’s know how they work to provide hot water-there is a water flow sensor that is placed at the inlet water pipe. As the tap on, water will come through the inlet pipe, and at the same time sensor detects the water flow and turn ON the geyser. In simpler words, the geyser starts working when you open the tap or shuts down when you close the tap.
As the geyser turns ON, burner ignition starts, burners are placed just below the heat exchanger, heat exchanger use the heat energy to heat the water. All we know copper is a good conductor of heat, hence to achieve maximum energy transformation, heat exchangers are made with copper.
Burner and heat exchanger are the two main parts of a gas geyser. There are many types of geysers based on the energy source like LPG gas geyser, PNG gas geyser, electric geyser and solar geyser.
Gas geysers are very easy to operate, most geysers have 3 control knobs on the front panel- to set the gas usage, to maintain temperature and the last to select winter or summer mode. At the time of installation all these settings are done, after then no need to change the setting.
Your geyser will automatically turn ON when you open the tap or turn OFF when you close the tap, isn’t it simple and easy. There is no magic it’s all possible just because of flow sensors as I mentioned above gas geysers have flow sensor that detects water flow and turn ON/OFF the geyser respectively.

Most people do not recommend gas geysers, just because of safety issues. But if you take the necessary precautions, then I don’t think you have any problems. I am saying this because at our home, we are using gas geyser and until now there is no problem. Below I mention few things that should take care of if you buy a gas geyser-
- Make sure your bathroom is properly ventilated.
- To avoid any mishappening, its better to place a cylinder outside the bathroom.
- Make sure your LPG hose pipe is of good quality. It should be flame resistant or steel wire reinforced so that there is no fear of leakage, also rats can’t bite steel.
Gas geyser is a good choice if you are staying in rural areas because it doesn’t require electricity to operate.
Also, gas geysers are economical than electric geysers.
