Electric Water Heaters are the ideal choice for many Maryland households.
- No need to vent to the outside
- Excellent choice for areas with limited space
- Longer life expectancy compared to a gas water heater
Although gas is generally a cheaper energy source for your hot water heater, there are times when an electric hot water heater makes more sense. Often, a gas line is not readily available in the home or space requirements are such that a gas model won’t work.
The technicians at Abbott’s Plumbing can assist you in choosing an electric hot water heater that will be energy efficient and provide the right capacity for your household size.
Electric water heaters can have a slightly longer lifespan. They have fewer parts and fewer parts subject to heat so they typically outlive their gas counterparts. They don’t have a pilot light so you don’t need to worry about relighting a flame that accidentally goes out.
An electric water heater can be installed in just about any space without fear of gas buildup or venting requirements like that of gas water heaters. There are some electric water heaters that are small enough to fit under a sink, in a closet or just about anywhere in your home.
