Gas Vs. Electric

GAS Vs ELECTRIC WATER HEATERS

Water Heaters are a key appliance in the modern home, so confronting the

question of what kind of heater to get is a must in replacements, remodeling

jobs and new home construction. Circumstances in the United States, such

as the ready availablility of cheap natural gas, usually favor the use of a gas

water heater over an electric water heater.

 

Cost of Use

The typical gas water heater can heat 50 gallons of water from 55 to 105

degrees F for about 17 cents. A 4500 watt electric water heater does the same

job for about 49 cents.

 

Time

The same gas water heater requires about 30 minutes to heat about 40 gallons

of water from 55 to 105 degres F. The same 4500 watt electric water heater will

need twice as long.

 

Corrosion

Gas water heaters use steel tanks with glass or ceramic linings that are prone to corrosion. Electric heaters can use plastic tanks that are not prone to corrosion.

 

Cost per Unit

Electric water heater cost about 20% less to purchase and less to install than gas water heaters.

 

Life Expectancy

Electric water heater in areas where the minerals are low in the water can last up to 14-years, electric water heater used where water is high in minerals may only last 6 to 10 years. Gas water heaters usually last 12-years, water softners can increase the life expectancy of all water heaters life by 25%.
