Like hot showers? You’ll love propane water heaters!

Times like these and the winter to come make long, hot showers and baths a wonderful indulgence. But if your home’s water heater is getting on in years, it either isn’t up to the job of fast water heating or is so inefficient it’s driving up your energy costs.

Now is the optimal time to upgrade to a new propane water heater, installed and serviced by the skilled, experienced service technicians at Taylor Gas!

Why is propane the best fuel for water heating?

If your current water heater is electric, now is the time to replace it with a propane version! Propane is a superior choice when it comes to running your water heater.

You may save up to $4,000 over the typical 10-year lifespan of a tank-style water heater by swapping out your electric water heater for a propane-powered model.

Did you know that water heating consumes around 20% of your home’s energy? This means the efficiency of your propane water heater may save you a lot of money.

A propane water heater’s energy efficiency may benefit you in a variety of ways. It has a recovery period that is twice as quick as an equivalent electric water heater. You’ll use less energy and will have to wait less time for hot water.

How to choose the right water heater

Did you know that you have a choice when it comes to water heaters? The conventional storage water heaters, which feature a tank, and tankless propane water heaters are the two most common types of propane water heaters.

There are benefits to both options. When you come in for a new water heater, we’ll thoroughly discuss your needs and budget to ensure you get the best water heater for your home.

Tank-style water heaters are less expensive to purchase and install. Their easy operation makes maintenance and repair simple and inexpensive.

Tankless water heaters are more expensive to buy and install up front, but they typically last twice as long or even longer than tank-style water heaters.

A tankless water heater is ideal for when you require a lot of hot water. A tankless water heater lets you not need to wait for hot water between showers, and the dishwasher can run at the same time. Installing a tankless water heater may save you 35% or more on your energy costs since it provides hot water only when you need it.
