Youíre in Hot Water with Propane. Thatís a Good
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

who wants to reduce their impact on the environment
would benefit from learning more about propane

replacing an old tank-style electric or propane
water heater in an existing home or designing and
building a new home, more and more homeowners and
builders are warming up to the benefits of going
tankless with propane.

Tankless Hot Water Heaters Works
water 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
Propane vs. Fuel
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 contaminants.
