Jacksonville Propane Water Heaters
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, water heating can account for 15 to 25 percent of total residential energy usage. Propane water heating can help you save money, reduce your home’s carbon footprint and improve home comfort — regardless of where you live.
Propane vs. Electricity: No Contest
It's a fact: Not a single electric tankless water heater currently qualifies for Energy Star recognition. On the other hand, a number of propane tankless water heaters with an efficiency rating of 82% or more are on that list.
A tankless propane unit can cut your water heating bills by as much as 60% compared with a standard electric storage model, all while providing instant, on-demand hot water. Many propane tankless water heaters also qualify for tax credits and other incentives, which can pay for a portion of your installation costs. If you want a standard tank-type water heater, propane offers faster initial heat-up and a quicker recovery rate than electric storage water heaters can deliver. Contact Griffis Gas to learn more about the benefits of a tankless unit and how it can increase the money in your wallet and decrease your carbon footprint.
Clean and Green
Studies by the Environmental Protection Agency show that propane emits 52% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than electricity. That's why propane is an approved alternative fuel recognized by the Clean Air Act of 1990 and a qualifying alternative fuel eligible for various federal tax incentives under the Energy Policy Act of 2005.
By using a gas log fireplace to heat the main living area or your home, you can lower your thermostat and save potentially 20% to 40% on your energy costs.
