Electric Or Gas Water Heater


About This Data: Operating costs are based on US EIA national averages of Electricity ($0.012/kWh), Natural Gas ($13/1000 ft3), and Propane ($2.80/gal). Prices fluctuate and your state may be higher or lower, so compare the relative costs. Payback years are based on comparisons with same-fuel, basic tank water heaters: Electric (EF 0.9, Price $350), Gas/Propane (EF 0.58, Price $450). To compare paybacks of changing fuel sources use the operating costs. Installation costs are assumed $300 (tanks) and $1,000 (tankless).
