The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that approximately 20 percent of a home’s energy costs are spent heating water. That’s why selecting an efficient water heater is critical — and propane fuels some of the most efficient water heating technologies available.
As a result, you can significantly reduce your energy costs when you choose an efficient propane water heating system over a standard electric water heater.
One great option is a tankless propane water heater. Take a look at these three great benefits:
- Lower bills – By operating only when hot water is needed, a tankless system will cut your monthly water heating bills. It’s estimated that you can save more than $150 a year in annual energy costs compared with electric models.
- Unlimited hot water – Imagine never running out of hot water in the shower even if the dishwasher and washing machine are running at the same time! A propane tankless water heater can produce more than 200 gallons of hot water per hour, compared with a standard 50-gallon electric storage tank water that only delivers 64 gallons of hot water in the first hour. This dramatic variance in performance can mean the difference between a hot shower and a cold shower!
- Easy fit – Tankless systems can be mounted on the wall; these units are about the size of a suitcase, which means your propane installer can put them in crawl spaces, attics, closets and other tight spaces.
