Propane Water Heater Contractors
Propane water heaters are one of the most eco-friendly types of water heating available for consumers. And with the recent national trend of rising electric rates, a propane water heater is also more budget-friendly and cost-effective than the once popular electric water heater.

Although propane water heaters have a higher price tag than other types of water heaters like electric, natural gas, or oil, propane water heaters can save a homeowner significantly more money over the life of the appliance. Propane water heaters have low running costs and use up to 50% less energy than other types of water heaters. Let's examine the pros and cons of the two main types of propane water heaters.
Conventional "Tank" Propane Water Heaters
In a conventional propane water heater, water is kept hot and available for use at all times in a large tank that stores between 20 to 80 gallons. The major disadvantage of using a conventional propane water heater is that it uses more energy than necessary. Because it is designed to keep such a large amount of water hot at all times (including when you're at work, asleep, or on vacation), conventional propane water heaters waste energy and incur standby heat loss. This increases a homeowner's monthly utility bill.
One advantage of conventional propane water heaters over conventional electric water heaters is that propane models can fill the storage tank and heat the water in about half the time required by an electric model. This can reduce a homeowner's energy bills by up to 30%.

Tankless Propane Water Heaters
For ultimate energy-efficiency, a propane tankless water heater is a great option. Unlike a conventional water heater, a tankless propane water heater does not incur standby heat loss, because it has no storage tank. Rather, a tankless propane water heater heats water on demand, at the homeowner's request, whenever a hot water tap is turned on. In a tankless propane water heater, water circulates through a coil and is heated by a propane burner to a pre-determined temperature.
There is no energy wasted or lost in a tankless propane water heater, because it heats only the amount of water presently needed. An ENERGY STAR® qualified tankless propane water heater can drastically reduce a home's energy use and lower energy bills up to 60%! Although tankless water heaters are more expensive than conventional hot water heaters, the unit can pay for itself in a matter of months.
The one disadvantage of a tankless water heater is that it has a lower flow rate than a conventional water heater. Because a tankless water heater heats water "on demand," one unit may not be able to support simultaneous hot water use, e.g. taking a hot shower, washing clothes in hot water, and running the dishwasher at the same time. If you have a large family with greater than average hot water needs, you can install more than one tankless water heater in your home, or even dedicate a single propane tankless water heater to each major hot water source, such as a dishwasher and washing machine.
Reduce Energy Use and Energy Bills with a Propane Water Heater
If you're considering water heater repair or water heater replacement of an outdated, non-efficient model, choosing an energy-efficient propane water heater is a great way to reduce energy use, energy bills, and help the environment!
