Electric Vs. Propane Water Heaters

July 29, 2022 –

Many use propane appliances in their homes for cooking, heating, and outdoor living. However, some people forget that propane can also power water heaters. This is unfortunate because electric models are not as efficient, have higher emissions, and do not provide the same comfort level as propane units.

Energy Efficiency

Hot water is used in many ways in our homes, such as in kitchens, baths, showers, and laundry. Energy Star propane water heaters are more energy efficient and cost-effective than electric models, allowing you to save energy and save money.

Propane can save you up to 20% on your annual energy costs, and funds from those reduced energy bills can be used elsewhere.

Reduced Emissions

When you use propane to power your appliances, you can feel good about your home’s environmental footprint. A propane tankless water heater alone will nearly halve your CO2 emissions compared to an electric unit.

Increased Comfort

With a propane water heater, you’ll never have to worry about being last in line for the shower again. Propane heaters are very powerful and can quickly provide ample hot water for every person in your family.

These models also conserve space. A 40-gallon propane unit can provide just as much hot water as a 50-gallon electric model.
