If you’re still using an electric water heater, your energy bills are unnecessarily high. That’s because electric water heaters are inefficient and, since water heating makes up about 20% of your home’s energy costs, that inefficiency can bite you in the wallet.
By upgrading to a propane water heater, you’ll get better energy efficiency for more savings, as well as more comfort. A.C. Howell sells and installs top-quality propane water heaters from Bradford White, offering both conventional tank storage water heaters and high-efficiency tankless water heaters.
Whichever you choose, you will get dramatic energy savings over electric water heaters from Day One.
Propane tank water heaters heat more water faster than their electric counterparts and do it at about 30% less cost, giving you more comfort for less money! As with most other propane appliances, propane tank water heaters cost on average between 40% and 60% less to operate than comparable electric water heaters, factoring in energy costs, maintenance and repair costs and life expectancy.
A tankless water heater takes away the tank but gives you big energy savings and more in return!
With a propane tankless water heater, your water heating costs can be reduced by 40% or more compared with an electric water heater!
A conventional tank water heater heats and reheats the water in it over and over, 24/7, so you’ll have hot water whenever you need it. That uses a lot of energy. But a tankless water heater heats water only when you need it, giving you endless hot water on demand while slashing your energy usage!
The cold water from your water lines goes through a pipe into the tankless water heater unit. The propane gas burner immediately heats it to your set temperature. The heated water is then sent directly to where it is needed: the shower, the kitchen sink, the washing machine, wherever!
And if you need hot water in more than one place, a tankless water heater can handle that. It keeps heating water as long as you need it. So, you can take a shower when the dishwasher is running, or a load of hot-water laundry is in the wash, or if someone is taking a shower in the other bathroom.
Something you don’t have with a tankless water heater are the worries that can come with a water heater tank. You don’t have to worry about maintaining a tank, or the risk of tank failure. Tankless water heaters also last about twice as long as conventional tank water heaters.
