Product Description


Cost Effectiveness of SPEEDHEAT vs Electric Boiler
South African electricity costs: * R 1.42 kW / Hr (Check this cost in your area). Using a 5 kW SPEEDHEAT unit, the electricity costs for a family of 6, with each person showering for 5 minutes a day - R 106.50 per month (R 1.42 / 60min x 5kW x 6 People x 5 minutes = R 3.55 / day = R 106.50 per month).

  • Standard heat loss formula for a 150 litres boiler = 0.4watts per litre + 60 watts.
  • Cost per hour to maintain boiler at temperature = (0.4w x 150 litre) + 60w = 120w.
  • At current cost of * R0.28 kW/Hr * = 0.120w x R1.42 = R0.170 /Hr.
  • 24hrs x 365days = 8760hrs per annum = R 0.156 x 8760 = R1 492.70 p.a.
  • Losses from the boiler “geyser” only = R 124.40 per month.

NOTE: This excludes the cost of showering as in the SPEEDHEAT calculation. There are other costs when using a “geyser”, this is when the tap is situated some distance from the boiler and when hot water is left to cool in the pipes after the hot tap is used.

There are savings all round when installing a SPEEDHEAT. A conventional water storage heater “geyser” costs more, installation costs are much higher, it will consume five times more electricity and water.
