Safety Guidelines for Geyser Usage

Gas Geysers should be installed at areas like kitchen, utility rooms, halls and passageways if there is enough ventilation

If the geyser is to be installed in the bathroom(s), it should be well ventilated or must have an exhaust fan

If the bathroom is small and if the exhaust system is not installed, the Geyser must not be installed because this may lead to accumulation of fumes which may result in suffocation or asphyxiation
