Updating your home appliances is always a time-consuming endeavor, but it doesn’t have to be a stressful one as well. At Gladiator Repipe in San Jose, we’re always happy to help homeowners decide on the best water heater, and will gladly explain the benefits of each model and the differences in fuel sources. Three of the most common water heaters you’ll find are electric, natural gas, and liquid propane models. Tankless water heaters are becoming more and more popular, but we’ll discuss those at another time.

Electric water heaters are often less expensive than gas or propane models, and come in a variety of storage tank sizes. You can find several high-efficiency options, but it’s essential to know if your home is equipped for an electric appliance, or if it’s already piped for a gas or propane model. We’ll look at every option to help you decide, and if you choose a gas or propane water heater, it’s important to keep in mind that it will be a bit more expensive than an electric model, and that you need plenty of space around the appliance. You can’t store things, especially things that are combustible, near your gas water heater. However, they tend to be more energy efficient than their electric counterparts, and can help you save money each month.
