Should I Replace My Electric Water Heater with a Propane Water Heater?

Hot water heater

Posted: April 22, 2019

If your hot water heater is fueled by electricity—and not propane—you may be running out of hot water from time to time. Well, that’s just annoying—especially if it happens to you when you’re in the middle of your morning shower!

Here are some great reasons why a propane water heater is the better choice for you and your family:

Propane water heaters represent a better value

When you consider that a propane water heater has a lower cost of maintenance and lasts years longer than its electric counterparts, propane always wins. And if you want an easy way to raise the value of your home, switch to a propane water heater! Propane tankless models, especially, are highly desirable to home buyers since it will improve your LEED and home energy rating (HERS) scores.

Propane water heaters are more efficient

A propane water heater delivers hot water on-demand. In fact, it works twice as fast and heats much more evenly and efficiently as your old electric unit so there is no more waiting around for the water to get to the proper temperature.

Propane hot water tanks are the green choice

Propane is endorsed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as an environmentally-friendly fuel. Choosing propane means you will be lowering greenhouse gas emissions and doing your part to save our planet. An electric water heater simply isn’t as friendly to the environment, unlike propane.

Propane delivers on home comfort and convenience

With a propane hot water tank, you may never run out of hot water again, and you will enjoy a recovery rate that is easily twice that of an electric unit. You’ll also be able to reclaim all that space your electric hot water heater has been taking up as a propane system has a much smaller footprint. Propane hot water heaters have more accurate temperature controls and offer many more options in terms of size and where you can put them in your home.

In the propane vs. electric water heater battle, propane is always the best choice! Considering all of these great reasons to choose a propane water heater, the smart choice should be clear.
