In the following post, you’ll learn a bit more about why you may want to choose a natural gas water heater.
Benefits of Using a Gas Water Heater
There are a few benefits that you’ll enjoy as a result of using a gas water heater. The first one that springs to mind is the fact that you’ll be able to heat a sufficient amount of water for use throughout your home for less energy than you would with an electric water heater. While electric water heaters are actually very efficient, the fact of the matter is that electricity is simply more expensive to purchase than natural gas. Because of this, even the great efficiency with which an electric water heater uses that energy is not necessarily enough to offset the cost of the fuel.
Additionally, while the price of a gas water heater is pretty comparable to an electric counterpart, the installation costs of a electric water heater may be considerably more. If you don’t have an appropriate outlet, for instance, one will have to be installed, and the system will also have to be wired into your electrical panel. These costs can really add up quickly.
Finally, a gas water heater is going to be able to recover from serious drainage faster than an electric water heater can. This means that you won’t have to worry about running out of hot water, or at least for a long period of time, when you use a gas water heater, even if you do need to use a very substantial amount of hot water for any reason.
