Wondering if you should buy a gas or electric tankless water heater?
Choosing a gas or electric tankless water heater can a be tough decision as there is a lot to think about. You need to consider the following:
- The utilities available at your home. If your home doesn't have a gas hookup, you'll need to consider how much it would cost to add venting if you need a gas tankless water heater. On the other hand, if you're thinking of going electric, you'll need to make sure your home's electric panel can handle an electric tankless water heater. If it can't, you'll need to upgrade your panel.
- Your water usage. Gas units can provide more heating capacity than electric ones. If you're a single-person household, an electric tankless water heater might be great but a large family will likely need the higher heating capacity of a gas unit.
- Groundwater temperature. In the winter, when cold water arrives groundwater enters your home. This means your water heater will have to work harder to heat your home's water. Some electric models will work fine with low water usage, but larger homes with high water usage might want to consider a gas unit.
- Operational costs. Although gas is cheaper than electric, electric tankless water heaters are more efficient than gas ones. However, the harder you work your unit the efficiency drops, so make sure you select a unit that's properly sized for your home and needs.
