What’s the best fuel for my water heater?

If your present water heater is powered by electricity, now is the time to convert it to a propane model! When it comes to operating your water heater, propane is a superior option.

Because of their outstanding energy efficiency, you may save up to $4,000 over the typical 10-year lifespan of a tank-style water heater while utilizing propane instead of electricity.

Did you know that water heating accounts for roughly 20% of your home’s energy? That means the efficiency of your propane water heater can save you a lot of money.

The energy efficiency of a propane water heater may benefit you in various ways. It has a recovery rate that is twice as quick as an equivalent electric water heater. You’ll be utilizing less energy and spending less time waiting for hot water.

[h3]What type of water heater is right for me?

You have choices when it comes to water heaters today. The conventional storage water heaters, which feature a tank, and tankless propane water heaters are the two most common types of propane water heaters.

There are benefits to both choices. We’ll talk about your needs and budget to ensure you get the best water heater for your home.

Tank-style water heaters are less expensive to purchase and install. Their straightforward operation makes maintenance and repair simple and affordable.

While tankless water heaters cost more upfront to purchase and install, they can last twice as long, or even longer, than tank-style water heaters.

When you need a lot of hot water, a tankless water heater delivers. You won’t have to wait for hot water after taking a shower, and the dishwasher can operate at the same time. Because a tankless water heater provides hot water only when you need it, installing one may save you 35% or more on your water heating expenses.
