Appliance Spotlight: Propane Water Heaters
Whether or not you’d like to admit it, water heaters are a crucial component to every home. Without them, our showers would be unbearable and our laundry would never really be clean. That’s why routine water heater maintenance is imperative.
But as Geoffrey Chaucer once said, “all good things must come to an end”—water heaters included. That’s why we put everything you need to know about water heaters in one convenient place!
Compared to electric units, propane water heaters are smaller, greener, more powerful and cheaper to operate. A 40-gallon propane water heater will deliver the same amount of hot water as a 50-gallon electric unit.
Opting for an Energy Star propane water heater could reduce your annual energy costs by 13-16%, compared to both electric and heating oil units.
You’re also saving more than just money with propane-powered water heaters! Propane water heaters emit 35-60% less CO2 emissions than standard electric units. Best of all, your propane unit may be eligible for special incentives and rebates!
Always seem to run out of hot water? Then it’s time to go tankless! Tankless water heaters deliver an endless supply of hot water, so you can say goodbye to cold showers for good!
With improvements in efficiency, tankless propane water heaters can save you over $150 per year in energy costs compared to standard electric units! And depending on the model, your tankless propane water heater may even qualify for government incentives and rebates.
If you’re tight on space, going tankless is just what you need! Compared to standard storage units, tankless water heaters save, on average, 9 to 16 sq. ft. of floor space.
And when you go tankless, you’re also going green. Tankless water heaters powered by propane produce 50-60% less CO2 emissions than standard electric units!
