Q: Does it make sense to switch my electric water heater over to propane?

A: Absolutely. When it comes to considering types of water heaters, choosing propane is a smart choice—whether you get a traditional propane tank water heater or a high-efficiency propane tankless on-demand unit.

With propane, you will most likely never run out of hot water again. That’s because propane heats water twice as fast as a standard electric unit. Propane water heaters also have more accurate temperature controls and offer many more options in terms of size and where you can put them in your home.

Bonus: If you install a qualifying Rinnai propane tankless water heater by 12/31/21, you’ll receive a $100 rebate!

A propane water heater has lower operating and maintenance costs and these units last longer than electric models. Plus, they result in significantly fewer emissions when you take into account how the electricity was generated in the first place.

If you are upgrading from electric to a propane model, there are a couple of extra steps in the process. We will make it easy for you but please don’t wait until your old unit fails to reach out to us.
