Portland’s Water Heater
The difference between Portland’s Water Heater: Gas vs. Electric
Although gas rates have risen dramatically, it is still less expensive to heat water with gas than with electricity. Also, installing an electric water heater would require new electrical circuits. You would have to hire an All Pro plumber to install the water heater and than an electrician for the wiring, unless you already have a set-up for an electric Portland’s Water Heater.
Now, lets look at the efficiency of gas vs electric Portland’s Water Heater. You can do so by looking at the EFs (energy factors). This is a number between zero and one and it relates to how much of each energy dollar results in heated water from the water heater tank. A higher EF indicates higher efficiency and lower utility bills.
Here are several other Portland’s Water Heater comparisons:
