Propane vs. Natural Gas Water Heaters Consumers have a variety of options for providing hot water for their homes, including solar, electric and gas water heaters. Gas water heaters come in two main varieties: natural gas and propane. When shopping for a gas hot water heater, knowing the pros and cons of each type helps consumers make an informed decision. One of the major differences between propane and natural gas is price. Propane is slightly cheaper than natural gas, but produces fewer BTUS, meaning that you get more heat per gallon of natural gas than propane. This means that while you’ll be able to find propane at a lower price per gallon than natural gas, you’ll likely end up using more of it. This may result in natural gas being more cost-effective than propane. Availability is also an issue when choosing between propane and natural gas. In most communities, natural gas is more available than propane. Knowing that you’ll have an ample supply of fuel and ready access to more is important to hot water heater owners. There are some environmental benefits to burning propane, over burning natural gas. Natural gas is considered a greenhouse gas, whereas propane is not. Propane is a cleaner burning fuel than natural gas, so if you’re concerned about your environmental footprint, propane heaters may be the right choice for you. Propane is produced domestically. For homeowners concerned about the nation’s dependence on foreign oil, this may be a point in the fuel’s favor. With regard to safety, both propane and natural gas are very safe fuels, although propane poses more of a hazard. Propane is heavier than natural gas and, when released into the atmosphere, is more likely to fall to the ground, whereas natural gas is more likely to dissipate into the air. As a result, propane poses more of an explosion risk than natural gas does. According to industry experts, about 15 percent of your home’s energy costs derive from heating water. Installing a new and efficient water heater can greatly reduce your energy costs. New natural gas and propane heaters are more efficient, than older model heaters, and can save you money over the long term. When purchasing a hot water heater, it pays to consult with professionals experienced in water heater sales. Commercial Water Heater Sales’s staff can help better advise you on what water heater can help you meet your financial and lifestyle goals. Summary: Propane and natural gas are two types of gas water heaters. Propane is cheaper, but less efficient than natural gas, while natural gas is less environmentally friendly than propane.
