Water Heaters: Switching From Electric To Propane
Posted: March 15, 2021
When you think about what you want out of a water heater, a few things probably come to mind: You’re probably looking for a consistent supply that comes in at your desired temperature without a wait. This should happen without bringing harm to the environment—and it shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg. These goals can be achieved, and the best way to make them happen for your Massachusetts home is with propane.
Do you currently have an electric water heater? If so, it’s a good time to think about transitioning to propane with Pioneer. Take a look at these reasons why you should make the switch to propane.
Choose Propane For Your Water Heater
- Expense. Did you know that roughly 20% of your home energy costs are probably related to hot water? With a propane water heater, you’ll spend more up front, but you’ll spend up to 30% less to operate it each month than you spend on your electric water heater. For even more impressive results, go with a propane tankless water heater, which costs about 50% less than electric water heaters to operate. And with a tankless water heater, you’ll also get up to 8 years longer with the same system than you would with electric. You also might qualify for a rebate!
- Results. Waiting for your water to heat up can feel like an eternity, and with an electric water heater, that warmth may only last a few minutes before turning back to cold again. If you switch to propane, your water heater will provide double the hot water it currently produces in the same amount of time. That supply becomes virtually endless if you install a tankless propane water heater instead!
- Environmental impact. Decreasing the size of our carbon footprint is an important, serious goal, and propane is part of the road to making this happen. In fact, a propane tankless water heater can help you cut back on carbon emissions caused by water heating by about 50%.
