1 thought on “Should I get an electric or gas water heater?”

  1. Deciding between getting an electric or gas water heater can be confusing when there are many variants in the market. Here we help you decide by contrasting electric and gas heaters.

    • Gas water heaters often extend far more residual heat than electric heaters since cold water added to the tank often prompts constant reheating. This is often why they are stored in the basement where the excess heat does not affect the rest of the home.
    • Electric water heaters are often less expensive to install than their gas system counterparts, which need gas hookups, open flame heating mechanisms, and often an installation fee.
