Imagine opening your refrigerator and seeing a gallon of milk. Now imagine seeing 60 of those.
That’s about how much hot water the average American family uses every day to shower, bathe, wash their hands, wash the dishes, and clean their clothes. When you consider how much water that is, it’s no wonder that heating it accounts for about 18 percent of your monthly energy bill.
The good news is there’s a simple way to keep that number as low as possible: switch from an electric water heater to one powered with propane.
Here are five reasons why:
Propane, on the other hand, is a low carbon, clean-burning energy source that emits virtually no air pollutants. It is also non-toxic, so accidental spills will not damage the environment.
Another way propane helps the Earth? Propane water heaters – especially tankless models – last longer than electric water heaters (see #4 below), which means less junk in the landfill.
If you choose a propane tankless water heater, you’ll skip heating (and reheating) stored water altogether, which could save you as much as 50 percent on your water heating bill.
As you can see, a propane water heater is a cost effective way to heat water that provides many advantages over its electric counterpart.
Make the smart choice – go propane!
