What to Consider When Choosing a Gas Unit
Is a gas unit better than an electric unit? There is no right or wrong answer to this question – the right type of water heater depends on your unique requirements.
Gas water heaters offer:
- Faster heating: Gas models tend to heat water twice as fast as electric ones. This makes gas units ideal for larger families and bigger buildings.
- Potentially lower heating costs: Depending on the cost of gas and electricity in your area, heating your water supply using natural gas is often cheaper than using electricity.
- Functionality during power outages: If your gas water heater operates with a pilot light (rather than an electric ignition) it will still work if the power goes out.
Of course, gas water heaters offer a few drawbacks – they tend to come with higher upfront costs and often have shorter lifespans than electric units. That said, gas units are a smart choice for many home and business owners when every factor is carefully considered.
