Every family and household requires the use of hot water. Behind air conditioning and heating, heating the hot water in your home makes for the second largest energy user. With three different types of hot water heaters to choose from, gas, electric or solar powered, it can sometimes be a bit confusing for homeowners to know which type of hot water heater is best suited to their needs and which is the best energy efficient water heater as well.
The professionals here at South Nashville Heating and Cooling are committed to providing all our clients with superior products and services, and that includes insight we can afford our clients on various topics. When it comes to choosing the best energy efficient water heaters, we recognize that each source of power possesses its own benefits and advantages, but further recognize that gas hot water heaters are known to offer greater cost savings, greater reliability and durability, as well as faster water heating times overall making them, in our opinion, the best all round energy efficient water heater available today. With that said, we feel confident that gas hot water heaters hold a definite edge over other sources of power.
The Benefits and Advantages of Energy Efficient Water Heaters
To begin with, with a gas water heater homeowners get more water and they get it faster. A gas water heater can heat up and deliver near to 50% more hot water in an hour’s time than an electric tank can, thus making them far more convenient and reliable as well as efficient for larger households that tend to use a lot of hot water at the same time.
Energy efficient gas water heaters afford homeowners cheaper operating costs overall. Though an electric hot water heater can be more energy efficient than a gas one, the high cost of electricity on the whole makes it a lot cheaper to operate a gas hot water heater. Statistics tell us that it costs about 25-30% less to operate your gas hot water heater than it does to operate an electric one.
Yet another attractive benefit of energy efficient water heaters is the fact that they have a quick recovery rate. Your gas hot water heater can recover about 50 gallons per hour where an electric tank will only recover about 15 gallons per hour. This means that a gas hot water heater allows homeowners to get more hot water from a smaller sized tank, thereby proving to be both effective and energy efficient.
Finally, the experts here at South Nashville Heating and Cooling want to pass along the fact that if the power should go out in your home, with a gas hot water heater you can still enjoy hot water during the power outage.
