Propane Hot Water Heaters:
More Hot Water... Faster and More Economically!
Youíre in Hot Water with Propane. Thatís a Good
Propane gives you
more hot water at a more affordable price. And a gas
fired home water heating system is less expensive
and cleaner to operate and maintain than either
electric or oil-fired hot water heaters. Thatís why
millions of American homes use propane to heat water
for their showers, washing machines, and

Propane tankless water heaters are
so efficient, theyíre Energy Star
qualified (electric tankless water
heaters are not).
Propane tankless water heaters
reduce carbon emissions by 63
percent compared to electric
tankless water heaters.
Propane tankless water heaters
prevent the emission of 35,000 lbs.

electric-powered water heater.
Switching from an electric water
heater to a propane tankless system
has nearly the same greenhouse-gas
emission impact as does switching
from a typical mid-sized sedan to a
Toyota Prius (in the U.S.).
Tankless water heaters reduce
standby energy loss by up to 20
percent compared to storage water
heaters, and they cost approximately
60 percent less to operate.
Most tankless water heaters can

Because tankless models are less
subject to corrosion, the expected
life span of a tankless water heater
is 20 years, twice as long as most

Tankless Hot Water Heaters Works
heaters only heat water when itís needed. When a
water tap is opened, the tankless model senses the
demand for hot water and starts the heating process.
The water flows through a heat exchanger and is
heated to the designated temperature set by the
user. When the water tap is closed, the heater
automatically shuts off until hot water is demanded
vs. Fuel Oil
Fuel oil is
adequate for supplying heat, but, unlike propane, it
cannot power certain appliances such as ranges or
dryers. Fuel oil furnaces and water heaters are not
as efficient as propane models. In many instances,
hot water is derived from a fuel oil fired furnace,
requiring the furnace to run and wasting even more
energy. Their burner nozzles get clogged very easily
and need frequent maintenance. While propane is
clean burning, fuel oil produces soot and other
