An average family of four requires approximately 100 to 120 gallons of heated water per day, according to National Propane Gas Association. Based on the 1991 representative costs released by the U.S. Department of Energy, the annual operating cost of a standard electric heater is $546, and energy saver propane gas water heater is $310 and a high efficiency propane gas water heater you can save up to $262 every year.
Propane also uses considerably less natural energy than electricity. And, conserving energy is something we're all concerned about. Electricity loses approximately 73% of its efficiency from the point of generation to the end -user. Propane loses only three percent. That means more than three times the electricity must be produced to euqal the efficiency of propane gas at the end-user-you! It typically takes an electric water heater longer to heat up water than it takes a propane heater with the same size tank.
No one likes to spend more on utilities than they have to. Buying an affordable energy-efficient propane water heater just makes good sense.
And here's more good news: Propane water heaters recover hot water faster, so you get more hot water during peak usage times!
