Gas And Propane Water Heaters
Gas and propane water heaters are commonly used in suburban homes for several reasons. They heat water quickly, they have large tanks, and they are fairly inexpensive to operate. However, over time they are susceptible to certain damages if they are not properly maintained. For example, in areas with hard water, or water with heavy mineral content, it is extremely common for water heaters to collect sediment in the tanks. Regular inspection and testing services take time to drain the tank, in an effort to prevent significant amounts of build up. If you are currently using an older gas water heater, you may also be paying more on utilities than you need to be, as older water heaters tend to consume more energy over time. A gas water heater replacement may be the least expensive and most efficient option for you.
Electric water heaters are a popular replacement option for gas and propane water heaters, for more reasons than one! Highly efficient, some electric water heaters can effectively heat the water in your home as you use it, which means it doesn’t waste energy keeping the water warm until you use it. Furthermore, some electric water heaters can be set to run on timers, so that they don’t need to use any energy at all when you aren’t home.
