Two Things About Propane Water Heaters You Need to Know

The first thing you need to know is that for energy savings and performance, propane-powered water heaters beat electric models hands down. 

Second, if you're replacing a water heater, you should know there have been big changes recently in the water heater market. Updated Federal efficiency standards for water heaters mean new models are larger. You can't just replace the old one with an updated model; it may not fit in the same space. Propane water heaters easily meet the space challenges of the new standards and deliver the comfortable consistent hot water your family needs.
