Electric vs. Gas Water Heaters
There are generally two types of water heaters: gas and electric. A gas water heater uses a burner assembly powered by natural gas to heat water before distribution. An electric water heater, however, uses an electric heating coil. As electricity runs through the coil, it meets a large amount of resistance that causes it to give off energy as heat. This allows the electric water heater to heat water without any sort of combustion. Both electric and gas water heaters have their advantages, and which one you use will depend largely on your individual situation. Neither one is better or worse than the other overall, though.
Why You Should Choose an Electric Water Heater
There are a couple of different reasons that you might choose an electric water heater for your home. The primary reason for most is that they live in an area that doesn’t have easy access to a natural gas line. One of the advantages that electric water heaters have over gas water heaters is that they can operate anywhere there is sufficient access to electricity. The other reason you might want an electric water heater is that, even if you do have access to a natural gas line, it might be cheaper to install an electric model. Extending a gas line to a new area is a lot of extra cost that most homeowners just don’t want to deal with.
