If your home’s water heater is approaching its 10th year of operation, it’s time to start planning to replace it.

Doing this now helps you avoid the stress, hassle, expense that comes with a failed water heater—or added maintenance to try to further prolong its shelf life.

Do you currently have an electric water heater? If so, you can take advantage of this opportunity to upgrade to a propane water heater! Depew Energy’s equipment experts can help you through the whole process. We sell, install, maintain, and repair top-quality water from name brands including Bradford White, Rinnai, Amtrol & PurePro! And we provide dependable, safe, cost-effective propane delivery to keep them running.

Propane Water Heater Advantages

Here are three reasons why switching to propane is the right choice:

Energy Efficiency

When it comes to energy efficiency, propane has electricity beat by a mile!

Propane water heaters heat faster than their electric counterparts and do it with about 30% less cost. You’ll get more hot water with lower energy bills!

Something else in propane’s favor is that propane water heaters cost on average between 40% to 60% less to operate than comparable electric water heaters, saving you more money over its lifespan.

Propane tankless water heaters can cut your energy costs even more because they heat water on-demand—there’s no traditional tank where water has to sit and be reheated when ready to use.

Added Comfort

A 40-gallon propane water heater model delivers the same amount of hot water as a 50-gallon electric unit and delivers it much faster.

Want endless hot water whenever you want it? A propane tankless water heater can do that! Because the water is heated on-demand, you can be using hot water in multiple spaces in your home—like the shower, dishwasher, and washing machine—simultaneously with no signs of a compromise between them.

If space in your home is an issue, this is another reason to choose a propane water heater. Recent federal efficiency standards require that all storage-tank water heater models be larger. If you try to replace your old electric unit with a new, larger electric model, it may not fit in that space.

Tankless propane water heaters are mounted on the wall, freeing up more floor space.

Safety Standards

Did you know that electric water heaters are at a greater risk to ignite than propane water heaters?

You’ll also have added peace of mind knowing that your propane water heater is installed and serviced by Depew Energy’s trained, experienced service technicians so if something comes up, we’re here to help.
