The Benefits of Gas Water Heaters
With a gas water heater, you can turn on the tap and be sure to get hot water. Electric ones might take longer for their heaters to fully recover after being used which makes them less efficient than natural gas units in large households or places with high demand such as hotels or gyms.
Gas water heaters can be more cost effective than electric water heating, and much cheaper to maintain. Because gas water heaters are much less expensive to operate (natural gas is much less expensive than electricity), they have quickly become the more popular choice for homeowners
major energy savings
You may be thinking that gas water heaters are expensive and inefficient, but the truth is they’re both cheaper than other types of heating sources. Gas also releases less carbon dioxide into your home’s atmosphere – this means you’ll save on energy costs in addition to money!
Consider The Long-Term Energy Savings of Using Gas
So you need buy a new water heater, know you want a gas unit, but wonder what other factors you should consider before purchasing. We recommend to start with ensuing that your new water heater can produce enough hot water for your needs. After knowing the GPM (gallons per minute) is taken care of, we recommend considering a water heater’s energy factor (EF) rating to ensure that you are getting an energy efficient unit that can save you hundreds (or sometimes thousands) in energy expenses over its lifetime.
The EF rating was established by the US Department of Energy to compare the energy efficiency of different water heaters. It’s simple, the higher the EF, the more efficient the water heater is. The EF considers the following:
- Cycling loss. The loss of heat as water enters your gas water heater tank
- Recovery efficiency. How efficiently your gas water heater heats up new water in the tank
- Standby loss. The heat loss when your water heater is idle
Frequently Asked Questions
Common Water Heater Service Questions We Hear
Do I need to drain or clean my water heater?
The water heater is one of the most important parts in your home. If it breaks, you may not be able to use plumbing fixtures or take a shower without boiling some water first – which would have been nice for that camping trip! Luckily there are simple steps we can take so our tanks don’t get clogged up with lime deposits and other gunk over time; cleaning them out will help maximize their performance once again (and prevent costly repairs).
Why is my water a brownish murky color?
Chemicals can cause rust in the water lines, which changes its pressure. This causes corrosion to come through your pipes and leave you with dirty murky water! If you notice a strange taste when taking showering then you should contact your local plumber in Johnson City right away! Sometimes pipe issues could also cause a number of problems with our tanks that can trigger a sensor to stop them from operating.
What is the best temperature to set my water heater at?
You’ll find that most people are comfortable with setting their water heater thermostats to 120⁰F – this is the normal manufacturer recommendation. If you have an older unit, however, then medium temperature may be best for both longevity and performance maintenance like regular drains/flushes!
