Why am I not using i‑HOT

Fel­low blog­ger in my office intro­duced me to i‑HOT. It is a good solu­tion. It is a great solu­tion to get hot water in “green” way.However, after a lit­tle research and get­ting feed­back from one of my col­league who is already using it, I decid­ed not to use it. Here is why:

(a) The over­head tank which is input to the i‑HOT is not owned by me alone. Nei­ther the ter­race where I have to put the solar pan­el. Imag­ine every­body con­nect­ing their own small tanks to over­head tank and clut­ter­ing the ter­race with pan­els. Not a good idea.

(b) The total cost of own­er­ship is com­pa­ra­ble to tra­di­tion­al solu­tion. Also month­ly bill is at least 180/-

© Since the equip­ment has to be fit­ted in open air on ter­race which is not pri­vate, its expo­sure to risk of get­ting dam­aged is more which could mean more main­te­nance.

So at this point of time I decid­ed to go with ener­gy effi­cient water heater like Rack­old. But i‑HOT is a good solu­tion for indi­vid­ual hous­es and I shall use it when I own one in days ahead.
