Types of Water Heaters

The majority of tank water heaters in the Buffalo, NY area are gas tank water heaters, which use burners fueled by natural gas to heat up the water. They cost more to install than some electric types of water heater because they require gas lines to function. But they tend to cost less to operate, since gas is cheaper than electricity.

Electric water heaters, on the other hand, use electric coils powered by your home’s electrical grid to heat the water. They work well for rural homes that might not have access to civic gas lines. They’re cheaper to install, but cost more to run, which could be a factor in determining which type of tank water heater works best for your home. But whether it’s a gas tank water heater or an electric tank water heater, our team has the skills you need to perform the installation the right way!
