There’s nothing more relaxing than a nice, hot shower–and nothing less relaxing than a surprise cold shower! If you’ve been struggling with your traditional tank water heater, switching to a tankless water heater is a no-brainer.
Tankless hot water heaters provide an excellent alternative to traditional tank water heaters. Depending on your home’s needs, you have the option of two tankless hot water heaters: electric tankless water heaters or a tankless gas water heater.
Both methods of tankless water heating heat water on demand (instead of storing a limited quantity of hot water in a tank), take up less space, and are much more energy (and cost) efficient.
When you’re ready to switch, turn to New Light Electrical and Plumbing Services! As a member of our Raleigh community for nearly half a century, we have the expertise to help you choose the right tankless water heater for you and ensure that your tankless water heater installation goes smoothly.
Gas or Electric: Which Tankless Hot Water Heater is Right For You?
Whether you opt for a tankless gas water heater or a tankless electric water heater depends on your specific home and family needs.
Here is a quick overview of both types of tankless hot water heaters:
|Gas Water Heater, Tankless||Electric Water Heater, Tankless|
|Holds a larger volume of water and provides better gallons per minute||Costs less up front for physical tankless hot water heater electric appliance|
|Good choice if you already have gas/propane services||Cheaper installation|
|Higher upfront costs for the physical tankless gas water heater||Greater energy efficacy|
|Higher tankless water heater installation costs||Electricity generally costs more per unit than gas|
|Gas is generally cheaper per unit than electricity (depending on your region and price fluctuations)||Do not require annual maintenance|
|Requires annual maintenance||More eco-friendly|
|Slightly less energy efficient than your tankless hot water heater electric options||This can place a strain on homes that already have higher than average electricity usage or older/warm climate houses that are not equipped with the necessary voltage|
In general, tankless gas water heaters are best for households with high water usage, but other households may find electrical tankless water heaters to be more efficient overall.
Still unsure which tankless water heater is best for you? New Light’s expert staff will help you make the choice!
