Electric, Gas & Propane Water Heaters
Choosing the correct fuel to run your hot water system can make a real difference, and not just in your energy bill. The fuel you use affects the size and energy efficiency of your system as well as your annual operating costs.
Hot water systems can run on electricity, gas, propane, solar power, geothermal energy, and more. The actual fuel costs for your hot water system vary with the type and efficiency of your system as well as the unit cost of fuel. For example, an electric water heater with higher energy efficiency might be less expensive to run than a gas water heater with lower efficiency even if your local gas rates are lower than your electrical rates. The tank-less water heater you need to fill your needs will be a different size than the storage water heater you need to meet the same needs, and each will have a different efficiency and a different fuel cost.
