Horizontal and Vertical geysers come with the storage types of geysers. Both deliver hot water for household and bathing purposes. Vertical geysers are a very common type of geysers compared to horizontal geysers.
Vertical geysers are vertically mounted to the wall, whereas horizontal geysers are mounted horizontally mounted. Let’s check the key differences.
Horizontal vs Vertical Geyser
|Vertical Geyser||Horizontal Geyser|
|Space||Required Vertical Space||Requires Horizontal space|
|Usually used||Bathrooms without ceiling||Bathrooms with ceiling|
|Power Consumption||Nominal||Very little higher compared to Vertical|
|Sample||Vertical Geyser||Horizontal Geyser|
Horizontal geysers are used mainly in places with a ceiling and not enough place to fit the vertical geyser. Usually, this scenario happens in apartments where the bathrooms with ceilings to cover the pipes.
Due to the design, Horizontal geysers consume more power compared to vertical geysers and also lasts less than vertical geyser.
Major differences in design between Vertical and Horizontal geysers are inlet and outlet come to a side of the geyser compared to the vertical geyser where inlet and outlet are present at the bottom of the geyser.
