Benefits of Electric Water Heaters

When you decide to purchase and install a water heater, you have a lot of choices. Nevertheless, if you use electricity to power your water heater, there are many benefits, as this is a safe, affordable, and easy option.

Electric Is Fast, Convenient, and Customizable

Since they don’t need extra vents, pipes, or complex distribution methods to mess with, the installation of an electric water heater can be very fast. Even if your home is in need of some sort of electrical repair that interferes with the installation process or complicates it, in a rare circumstance, the time and cost is still less than what is involved with setting up your home for a gas water heater. Electric water heaters are easily available in a wide range of sizes, and this reduces your need for special orders and additional waiting time.

Electric Is the Most Efficient

When a home is set up with a gas water heater, the process of combustion and ventilation lets a lot of heat escape. This is expensive when you look at wasted energy and longer wait for the hot water heater to operate at its optimal performance levels. An electric water heater never requires ventilation. Therefore, not only does the tank heat up faster, but the heat put off by the process stays inside your home instead of flying out through the vent. Especially if you have a busy family, this can be a wonderful advantage.

Electric is a Safe Option

Natural gas has a lot of advantages, but the major disadvantage is the concern over safety. Especially in older homes, if the piping or the ventilation does not work correctly, small leaks can turn into dangerous problems. Electrical safety issues tend to be less rare than those associated with natural gas, especially because your wiring must be checked before the installation of your new hot water heater. It’s difficult to put a price tag on peace of mind. In homes with younger children, many feel safer relying on electricity rather than a gas water heater.

Electric Keeps Installation Costs Low

There’s a good reason why electric hot water heaters are the most popular option, especially in brand-new dwellings. Even though gas water heaters may seem less expensive, quotes rarely include the cost of the extensive piping or the vents that will need to be installed in order to keep a gas water heater operating properly. Installation of an electric hot water heater, on the other hand, is simple and uses what is already set up in your home or office. Especially if you need a smaller hot water heater, the extra cost of making your space compliant with a gas water heater simply isn’t worth the initial investment. When in doubt, keep it simple.

How Do Electric Water Heaters Work?

Usually, people choose electric heaters over gas for factors like simplicity, lower installation and purchase costs, a feeling of greater safety, and the need for less space.

As electricity is widely and readily available, there are a lot of water heaters on the market that are powered by electricity. Electric heaters run the gamut of available options for home water heating. Because there are so many options, one has to make sure they make the right choice; the wrong choice could lead to greater costs due to a lack of hot water, leaks, increased maintenance, or even pre-mature replacement. Factors that need to be considered include the size of the home or business, how many people are in the household, and the daily usage. Then, the heaters themselves need to be compared for output, capacity, reliability, reputation, recovery time, life expectancy, and operation costs.

Because these appliances are vital and not known for being inexpensive, making the right choice is important. That being said, when selecting a water heater, it is probably wise to obtain professional advice. Of course, working with professionals like ourselves to install your electric water heater ensures proper installation which can lead to greater longevity, less maintenance, and, therefore, lower overall costs.

When should I replace my water heater?

You should upgrade to a new tank water heater every 10-15 years and a new tankless system every 20 years as a general rule of thumb. If you do not know how old your current water heater is, you can usually figure it out by looking at the serial number located somewhere on the unit. Other signs that it may be time to install a new water heater include strange noises or smells coming from your system or appearing in your water, uneven water temperature or flow, and increasing energy bills.

How many different types of water heaters are there?

Different water heater models can be broken down into categories based on fuel source, i.e., whether they run on gas or electricity. However, in terms of functionality, there are two main types of water heaters currently available on the market: standard tank water heaters and tankless systems. Traditional water heaters use a heating element to reheat your water in a large tank every time you turn the tap on. Tankless systems, on the other hand, heat water as it moves through your pipes.
