What is a Propane Water Heater?
A propane water heater uses propane instead of electricity or natural gas to heat the water for your home. It works in the same way as other water heaters, but with a different fuel source. It also has an exhaust system that releases the excess gas created during fuel burning.
Propane vs. Electric vs. Natural Gas Water Heaters
When it comes to water heaters, you have three basic choices: propane, electric, or natural gas. These water heaters differ primarily in their fuel source. Propane is the most efficient option for heating the water in your home, if you have access to propane. However, you will need a propane tank on your property and access to propane service in order to use propane for your water heater. Some homes are already equipped to run natural gas or electricity for their water heaters.
