Electric water heaters are expensive and power-hungry. Kenyan consumers connected to mains power spend over KES 230 ($2.70) to heat 100 litres of water. Camps and tourist lodges using diesel generators can spend significantly more.


At Chardust we've developed a range of water heaters fuelled with our briquettes that dramatically reduce water heating costs to below KES 50 ($0.60) for 100 litres (to 85 C). The heaters are easy to install, simple to operate and smoke-free. They're suitable for both private and commercial applications.


Our heaters can be used as stand-alone units or plumbed into existing water heating and storage systems. No special skills are needed. As a stand-alone unit, simply run an inlet pipe from your cold water storage tank to the heater and connect the outlet pipe straight to your taps or showers. The heater’s vent pipe takes care of any pressure differentials. Alternatively, use the unit as a pre-heater by plumbing the outlet into your existing boiler system. The water entering your boiler will now be pre-heated by the Chardust heater. Just watch your electricity bills shrink!
