What fuel should my water heater use?

Does your home currently have an electric water heater? If so, this is a great opportunity to convert to a PROPANE water heater!

Propane is a much better alternative to electricity when it comes to running your water heater. Here are just some of the ways propane is so much better than electricity.

With PitStop Fuels, you can enjoy the full benefits of a propane water heater with our reliable, safe propane delivery service and propane tank installation.

What kind of water heater should I get?

You may be surprised to learn you have a choice when it comes to water heaters. With propane water heaters, you can choose either the conventional storage water heater, which has tank, or a tankless water heater.

Both options offer advantages. We can help you figure those out so you make the right choice for your home and your family’s hot water needs.

Tank Water Heaters

Tank-style water heaters are less expensive up-front to buy and install. Because they are so simple in terms of their operation, maintenance and repair tend to be affordable as well.

Tankless Water Heaters

On the other hand, tankless water heaters also provide some advantages.

While tankless water heaters do cost more upfront to purchase and install, they can last twice as long—or even longer—than conventional storage water heaters.

Tankless water heaters also give you all the hot water you want on-demand. You not only don’t have to wait between showers for hot water, but you can also even take a shower at the same time the dishwasher is running with ZERO worries. On top of this, a tankless water heater can lower your water heating costs by 35% or more.

Best of all? No tank means there is no tank that can fail—so you effectively eliminate any potential water damage inside your home.
