The Advantages of Propane Water Heaters



July 30, 2023

There's nothing like a hot shower to melt away the day's stress and soothe tired muscles. An efficient propane water heater not only ensures you have enough hot water for your shower, but also for doing the dishes and laundry. More and more homeowners are discovering the benefits of propane water heaters over traditional oil and electric models. Here are a few good reasons to consider a propane water heater for your home:

Energy Star Certified Propane Water Heaters: Cost-Effective and Energy Efficient

Propane water heaters, particularly those with an Energy Star certification, are not only energy efficient but also cost-effective. These units are among the top performers in their class, offering significant savings over standard electric and oil-powered water heaters.

But the benefits of propane don't stop at water heating. This versatile fuel can power a range of home appliances, from furnaces and boilers to cooktops and dryers, enhancing comfort and energy savings throughout your home.

Switching to propane is a comprehensive solution for homeowners seeking to upgrade their home systems. Trust Superior Propane to deliver the best Energy Star certified propane solutions for your home.

Maximize Your Space with Compact Propane Water Heaters

Worried about fitting a large heater into a small space? Propane water heaters can help you save valuable floor space while still providing an abundant supply of hot water. For example, a 40-gallon propane storage water heater can deliver twice as much hot water as a 50-gallon electric tank, which is much larger and takes up more space in the home.

Water Heaters that are Environmentally Friendly

Propane water heaters emit 19% less ‡‡ carbon dioxide compared to other models, contributing to better indoor air quality and reduced environmental impact. Propane offers a cleaner burn than gasoline or diesel and emits fewer greenhouse gases.

Hassle-Free Installation and Maintenance

Ready to start reaping the benefits of propane water heaters? Superior Propane's Certified Partners will install your propane water heater, making it easier to get started. Once installed, our partners can help with regular care and maintenance, ensuring your heater lasts for years to come.

How Propane Water Heaters Enhance Your Home's Value

Installing an Energy-Star certified propane water heater can significantly enhance your home's energy efficiency and improve your home's EnerGuide rating. This is a rating system in Canada that reflects the energy efficiency of a home. A higher EnerGuide score may help increase your home's resale value.

A propane water heater with this certification helps conserve energy and reduce electricity bills. Furthermore, these models help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Energy Star certification is a testament to the product's eco-friendliness and high quality, ensuring they perform at par or better than standard models.

Expanding Propane Use for Whole Home Benefits

While propane water heaters are a great start, the benefits of propane extend throughout your entire home. This versatile fuel can power high-efficiency furnaces, boilers, and cooktops, enhancing comfort and energy savings.

Outdoor living is also transformed with propane-powered grills and pool or pool heaters. And in case of power outages, a propane standby generator ensures you're never left in the dark.

Switching to propane is not just about upgrading your water heater, but a comprehensive solution for homeowners seeking to improve their home and comfort. Superior Propane, with its commitment to quality and service, can assist in this transition, providing competitive pricing and value-added services.
