A hot water heater is an essential part of any household, when it comes to selecting your home’s hot water heater, the 2 most common options are electric and gas. Both have their advantages, and your final decision will depend on many things, including personal preference, budget, and # of people living in, and size of the home.
Electric hot water heaters are a popular choice for many homeowners due to their ease of use, and the upfront cost is typically much less than gas hot water heaters. Additionally, they are usually more compact, which makes them a great choice for homes of limited space, installation is generally quick and straightforward. I have found with a basic hot water heater replacement, I am usually done, and on my way in under 2 hours’ time.
When it comes to gas hot water heaters, you can’t beat the traditional 40-gallon hot water tank by Rheem. Gas hot water heaters are the more cost-effective option in the long run. Although the initial upfront cost is quite a bit more, they are often much cheaper to operate than electric. Another great thing about gas hot water heaters is chances are you will never run out of hot water, which makes them a very popular choice among big households.
If your home currently has an electric hot water heater, and you’re considering the switch to gas, call Mercer Gas to discuss options. As an experienced plumber, I can change out your existing electric hot water tank for a new, more efficient gas hot water heater for all of your household needs, I have both 40 and 50-gallon gas hot water heaters available.
I have had the experience of working with many different and really great manufacturers, and their products over the years, but my personal preference and # 1 choice to work with every time is Rheem. They deliver a quality product every time. I not only love the Rheem brand, but more importantly, I trust the products without a doubt, I use them in my home, so I will use them for yours. It’s really quite simple when it comes to my clients, I want only the best, so I choose to use only the best.
