The only thing a propane-fueled storage water heater has in common with an electric storage water heater is the tank. In fact, the cost to operate a propane water heater is typically less than half of what it costs to operate an electric water heater. Even better, propane's clean energy emits fewer greenhouse gases than electric storage water heaters.
Propane Heats Faster. Recovers Faster.
It's a fact: Propane heats water nearly 40 percent faster than electricity. That not only means less energy use, but faster recovery time when hot water is being tapped for multiple uses. For that reason, a 50-gallon propane storage water heater unit may do the same job as an 80-gallon electric unit.
Shop Smart. Save Money.
All tank water heaters do the same thing: Maintain a reservoir of hot water — all day and all night. As a result, a certain amount of energy in tank heaters is subject to standby heat loss. When shopping for a propane tank water heater, you can minimize that loss by choosing models with heavily insulated tanks. The U.S. Department of Energy recommends looking for tanks that have thermal resistance rated at R-12 to R-25.
