Benefits of Electric Water Heaters
- Lowest upfront costs. An electric water heater is likely to be your most affordable option upfront when it comes to pricing.
- No risk of a gas leak. Both gas and electric water heaters are very safe, but the electric option takes out the hazardous variable of gas altogether, lowering your overall risk.
- Hot water anywhere. Unlike gas water heaters, which need regular propane deliveries or have to be hooked up to a public gas line, you can run electric water heaters from almost anywhere. If you have electric light – chances are you can run an electric water heater.
- Good energy efficiency. To best compare efficiencies of various water heaters, Waldrop plumbers analyze their energy factors (EF). Between gas and electric water heaters, electric water heaters win from an efficiency perspective. Gas water heaters typically have an EF (energy factor) between 0.5 to 0.7, while electric water heaters can have a higher EF (higher means more efficient) than 0.9.

Electric water heater repair – The average service life of an electric water heater is between 10 to 15 years.

Electric water heater maintenance – While today’s modern water heaters are designed to be a lot more hands-off than older models, preventative tune-ups are necessary to keep your electric water heater running safely and efficiently.
