Better hot water starts with Propane
Gallon for gallon propane provides you with more hot water quicker than electric water heaters.
Propane storage tank and tankless systems heat water more efficiently, and with fewer emissions compared with other options. They offer a variety of advantages, especially over electric water heating.
Along with a smaller carbon footprint than electric water heaters, propane water heaters offer significantly faster water heating – most propane units can put out twice as much hot water! That’s a lot of showers or baths!
Propane water heater are also more efficient than their electric counterparts. That means more of the energy that goes into creating hot water isn’t wasted. According to the Propane Energy and Research Council (PERC), a standard propane water heater with a tank performs more efficiently than a standard electric water heater with a tank. PERC reports that an ENERGY STAR storage tank propane water heater can save a household 13 to 16% on heating costs over a year.
The initial upfront cost for a propane water heater is more than an electric model by $200 - $300. That difference is paid back in a year or less in cost savings. You certainly can’t beat that payback!
