It’s a question that homeowners have grappled with for decades. Do I have a gas water heater installed or an electric one? Depending on your local utility costs gas water heaters are usually cheaper to operate. Understand, that they cost more than electric ones, but because of the energy savings they usually make that up in about a year.
The majority of gas water heaters operate with a pilot light. They heat water even when the electricity is off. Because the gas one’s heat water at a ratio nearly twice as fast as electric models, if you rely on a gas water heater for bathing during an outage it will be an economical choice. Just one of several things to consider.
