With a variety of gas, tankless and electric water heaters to choose from, homeowners have many options when it comes to heating their water. Ace Hardware can help you find large capacity, compact or lowboy electric tank water heaters to suit your needs.
Electric hot water heaters allow homeowners to forgo an additional natural gas hook up – which is one less gas leak to be concerned with. Some electric hot water tanks are even made out of plastic and less likely to corrode so they last longer than their gas counterparts.
Understanding the advantages homeowners realize with electric water heaters, it’s important to note electric units usually cost more to operate than gas units. To help homeowners who prefer electric water heaters achieve energy efficiency, Ace Hardware also carries heat pump water heaters. These units actually draw in or “pump” warm air from their surroundings to heat water, rather than relying solely on electricity to generate warmer temperatures.
