For My Home / Water Heaters
Propane water heaters with tank are more compact, efficient and cost-effective than similar electric water heaters.
As a result, a home needs a 40-gallon water heater running on propane or a 50-gallon water heater running on electricity to produce 70 gallons of hot water in the first hour of use.
Propane water heater tanks come in a wide range of capacities and are able to keep hot water at a temperature of up to 83 °C (180 °F). Many models are Energy Star certified and can reduce propane costs by 13 to 20%.
They require less energy to produce hot water on demand, keep large amounts of hot water at the desired temperature and are not subject to power outages. Such efficiency is impossible to achieve with an electric water heater.
They also have the advantage of not losing heat for reasons related to storing water in a tank for several hours.
Finally, tankless water heaters are much more compact and take up a fraction of the space than water heaters with a tank.
