Propane and gas water heaters are popular options for homes for a multitude of reasons. These systems heat water quickly, they have large tanks, and they are cost-effective to operate. However, without proper maintenance, propane and gas heaters are susceptible to many damages and weaknesses. In areas with heavy mineral content or hard water, for example, issues caused from sedimentary buildup can be avoided with regularly scheduled maintenance. Getting a water softener installed onto your main line can also help to remove the minerals found in water that leave behind sediment buildup. These water heaters can also become less energy efficient as time passes, leading to higher energy bills. As these problems become more frequent, replacement could be the most cost-effective solution available. Natural gas is actually more energy efficient than electricity, so having a gas water heater will significantly reduce your energy bills as the flame of the gas heater heats water much quicker than electric coils. That means that unit doesn’t have to stay on as long trying to heat water and wasting energy, racking up money on your energy bill.

Propane Water Heater Replacement Options

Electric water heaters are a popular choice for replacing propane or gas water heaters. Since they don’t use a continuous flow of natural gas or use a pilot light ignition system, electric water heater units are considered to be safer than gas or propane water heaters. Electric water heaters can additionally be set with timers for optimal safety and energy savings when you aren’t home.
