Heating water is the second biggest energy cost in a typical household. Choosing the right water heater can make a big difference. Natural gas water heaters are not only the faster way to heat water, they’re significantly more efficient and economical than electric models.
For example, a 40-gallon natural gas model heats as much water as a 50-gallon electric model, and does it faster and more efficiently. It’s like getting two bathtubs full of water heated with natural gas for the same cost of only one tub heated with electricity.
