Electric Hot Water Heaters

See all water heaters

Electric hot water heaters use less energy than gas water heaters because you don't have to keep the pilot light burning. Water heaters that run on electricity also tend to be safer to use. Electric water heaters are very energy efficient. They waste less water because the water warms up quickly. This saves you money, and also helps the environment.

One downside to electric hot water heaters that many people may not think of. Because they run on electricity, if your house loses power, you’ll be taking a chilly shower. Electric water heaters also tend to take longer to recover when you use up all the hot water in the tank. You may want to also consider a Generac back-up generator.
