By opting for a water heater powered by clean, green propane gas, you’ll not shrink your monthly bill, you’ll also shrink the carbon footprint of your Massachusetts home (talk about a win-win!).
Need more reasons to switch from electric to propane for your water heating? Here are six big ones:
You’ll spend less in the long run – Propane water heaters may cost a bit more up front than their electric-powered counterparts, but what matters more is the total cost of ownership over the life of your equipment. Propane water heaters cost less to maintain, have a longer lifespans (almost twice as long in the case of a propane tankless water heater), and cost less per BTU to operate. Overall, you can expect to save about 30 percent if you switch to a propane water heater over the course of its lifetime.
You’ll enjoy more – or even unlimited – hot water – Propane water heaters heat water twice as fast as electric heaters – which reduces recovery time and stretches shower times. If you choose a propane tankless water heater, you’ll enjoy unlimited hot water on demand.
You’ll lighten the load on the planet – Using propane-powered equipment lowers greenhouse gas emissions compared to electric-powered options, especially when that electricity comes from coal-fired plants.
You’ll spend less money on repairs – Propane water heaters last longer than electric-powered water heaters, and usually require less maintenance.
You could be boosting your home’s resale value – Propane appliances can beef up your home’s Home Energy Rating System (HERS) and LEED scores – great news if you intend to sell your home down the road.
