What the Electric Companies Don’t Want You to Know About Propane Water Heaters

Is It Time to Pull the Plug on Your Electric Water Heater?

It’s a fact – energy efficient propane water heaters use less energy, save you money on your energy bills, and reduce your carbon footprint.

When you install a new, energy-efficient propane water heater, you’ll use less energy, save money, and reduce your carbon footprint.

Did you know that a 40-gallon propane storage tank water heater delivers the same amount of hot water as a 50-gallon electric water heater? Propane water heaters produce the hot water your family needs to be comfortable, all while using less energy and saving you money.

Not sure about the switch? In a comparison done by the Propane Education & Research Council, the annual energy cost for a propane tankless water heater in a 2,400-square-foot Midwest home was $355 less than an electric storage tank model. Not only did the propane tankless water heater save money, it also had above 70 percent fewer emissions.

Updated Water Heater Regulations

What You Need to Know

In 2016, the Department of the Energy raised the bar for water heater efficiency ratings. These regulations caused storage tank water heaters to increase in size. If your current electric hot water heater is in a small space or you want to save on valuable floor space, a propane gas tankless water heater is right for you. You can save anywhere from 9 to 16 feet on floor space – and have an endless supply of hot water on demand.

Types of Propane Hot Water Heaters

Storage Tank Water Heaters

Propane storage tank water heaters offer superior hot water delivery and savings on energy costs compared to a traditional electric tank hot water system. In addition, propane gas hot water tanks come in a wide range of capacities to meet the hot water demands in any home.

Tankless Hot Water Heaters

Propane gas tankless water heater systems eliminate “standby losses” which occur in water heater storage tank systems– like with electric water heaters. Tankless models heat water on demand – and save you money by only heating the water when you need it.

What is the Best Water Heater?

The truth is – electric water heaters create 35-60 percent more CO2 emissions than propane water heaters. Not only are propane water heaters a greener option for you and your home, they are a greener option for your wallet. Propane gas hot water heaters save homeowners like you money on your energy bills and provide the hot water demand needs for your home.
