As we begin to experience the first hints of winter here in Atlanta, it’s time to think of you favorite home improvement task….your water heater!

Gas Water Heaters Vs Electric
Few people think about their water heater until it isn’t working. It’s at that point that a water heater becomes one of the most important appliances in the home. When you think about how heating water in your home can represent just under 20% of your utility bill, making the wrong decision can really cost you in the long run. To help in your research, we thought we’d put our two cents in on a question we get asked all the time- which is better- a gas water heater or an electric one?
We warn you. There are way more similarities than differences.
In fact, we’ll end the suspense. The quickest way to decide which type of water heater to get is to look at what type of power you already have. If you already have a gas water heater, go with that.
Gas water heaters cost a little more to install but can save you a little more on your energy bill over the years. So, your cost of operation for gas water heaters are typically lower.
Another commonly known benefit to having a gas water heater is that the water tends to heat up quicker which is an added plus when you’re wanting a warm shower on a cold day. People showering behind you also tend to still have hot water since the recovery time is less for a gas powered water heater.
