Does your old electric water heater have you wanting to pull the plug? Over time, the performance of any water heater diminishes, wasting energy and costing you money. The good news is that with propane, you’ll use less energy, save money, and reduce your carbon footprint compared with electric units — all while enjoying consistent, comfortable hot water.
Propane water heaters are available in both tank and tankless models — each of which have different benefits over electric and oil models — depending on your family’s needs.
Here are a few reasons why a propane water heater might be the right choice for your household.
Cuts Down Energy Costs - Your energy bill can be reduced up to 50 percent by switching to a tankless water heater, because energy is used only to heat water, not to store and keep water hot.
Longer Service Life - On average a high-efficiency propane water heater can typically last 20 years or more with proper care and maintenance.
Compact Size - Compared to a standard tank model, propane water heaters can save you a lot more space because they can be mounted on a wall, and even be installed outside with some units.
Hot Water On Demand - When sized correctly, a propane tankless water heater will provide your household with an endless supply of hot water, not just what a storage tank can hold.
Clean Water - A tankless water heater does not store it’s water, so you can rest easy that the water you’re using is not sitting in a rusted tank or with built up mineral scale, if it hasn’t been properly maintained.
Cuts Down Carbon Footprint - Switching to propane water heating models can reduce your household’s carbon dioxide emissions by 35 to 60 percent.
