Loved ones visiting for the holidays and holiday entertaining mean you’ll be using more hot water for washing, laundry, and dishwashing.

If you have an electrical water heater, it’s time to switch it over to a propane model! When it comes to powering your water heater, propane is superior. With dependable propane delivery from Boehlke Bottled Gas, you can enjoy all the benefits of a propane water heater.

Propane is the right fuel for water heating

You can save up to $4,000 over the normal 10-year lifespan of a tank-style water heater by using propane instead of electricity because of the high energy efficiency of propane water heaters.

Did you know that, overall, approximately 20% of your home’s energy is used for water heating? That means the efficiency of your propane water heater may save you a lot of money.

A propane water heater’s energy efficiency may benefit you in a variety of ways. It has a recovery rate that is twice as quick as an equivalent electric water heater. You’ll use less energy and spend less time waiting for hot water.

Choosing the right water heater

You may select from a variety of water heaters these days. The two most popular types of propane water heaters are storage tank-type and propane tankless water heater. There are benefits to both choices.

Tank-style water heaters are less expensive to purchase and install. Their simple operation makes maintenance and repair easier and affordable.

Tankless water heaters are more expensive upfront, but their life expectancy can be twice as long, if not longer, than tank-style water heaters.

A tankless water heater is ideal for when you require a lot of hot water. You won’t have to wait for hot water after washing, and other appliances that use hot water such as the washing machine or the dishwasher can also run at the same time. A tankless water heater takes up less space, weighs less, and costs less to operate than a traditional water heater. Because it heats water only when you need it, installing one may save you 35% or more on your water heating costs.
