Gas Water Heaters vs Electric Water Heaters

When choosing a new water heater, you have to decide if you want a gas water heater or an electric water heater. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. 

Many consumers like that electric water heaters cost less upfront, but notice they often have higher operating costs than gas water heaters. While gas heaters are more expensive to purchase, they have lower usage costs.

Tankless Water Heaters vs Storage Tank Water Heaters

Once you know the fuel type, you have to decide if you are going to use a tankless water heater or a storage tank water heater. Both come in electric or gas options. While storage tank water heaters are more common, tankless water heaters are quickly rising in popularity.

Tankless water heaters are more energy efficient compared to storage tanks and are favored because of their longer lifespan. While storage tank water heaters need to be replaced every 10-15 years, a tankless option will last 20 years or longer. However, the longer lifespan comes at a cost. While tankless water heaters will save you money overtime, they do have a higher upfront cost than a storage tank water heater.
