What To Expect From A Propane Hot Water Tank

Your hot water tank is one of the most essential appliances in your home; while it’s something that many people take for granted, you rely on your hot water tank every time you do laundry, take a shower, wash the dishes, or even wash your hands. If you live in a remote location and rely on propane to fuel your home, you likely use a propane hot water tank. They provide instant hot water supply and offer exceptional efficiency and lower maintenance costs. Whether you use a tankless propane water heater or a traditional tank, CanGas is pleased to be your propane supplier!

Your Water Heating Options

Tankless Water Heater

Tankless water heaters are an excellent option for saving energy and money because they only heat water when it’s needed. They are also compact and able to be installed near fixtures or appliances. Tankless water heaters are ideal for households with higher water consumption because they deliver endless hot water supply.

Traditional Hot Water Heater

A hot water tank powered by propane will meet the needs of the average household. Traditional tanks are available in different sizes based on the needs of your family, but because the tank stores hot water, you’ll need space in your home to accommodate the large appliance. Tanks are available in conventional, direct-vent, or power-vent models.

Benefits Of Using A Propane Hot Water Tank

With a propane hot water tank, you won’t have to worry about taking long showers! Get long-lasting hot water supply anywhere in your house, instantly. Propane water heaters are the clear choice! Cleaner and more environmentally sound than heating oil, and more efficient and reliable than electricity, a propane-powered hot water tank is both cost-effective and convenient. Did you know that propane water heaters can heat nearly twice as much water as an electric heater? Make the switch to propane today!
