If you are thinking about replacing your water heater, you must consider your fuel source and the most efficient model that matches the fuel. You may be building a home and need a new water heater, or yours is outdated and has problems. Whatever your situation, you are wondering which is the best option for you? There are only two water heat options – gas or electric. Pronto Service Pros provides both types of water heater installation and repair service in Redington Beach.
Is Natural Gas an Option?
Many people prefer gas water heaters over electric and often want to switch. That is only possible if you have a gas fuel source. If your house is entirely electric, an electric water heater is your only choice. You could have a gas hook-up installed, but that could be expensive.
How Much is Installation?
If you can choose either gas or electric models, you need to know some differences in installation costs. Electric models are cheaper to install. They often last long too, but that is not the whole picture.
What Are the Operating Costs of a Gas or Electric Water Heater?
The measurement used to determine how efficient a water heater is known as an Energy Factor (EF). Electric water heaters tend to have high EF scores, but the operating cost is three times more than a gas unit. Because the operating costs are lower, a gas water heater could be the best choice even though they cost more to install.
