With an electric water heater, there’s no pilot light to light – and relight. There are no fumes from gas or carbon monoxide, and no ventilation problems. It’s also economical – a family of four can have all the hot water they need for about $30 per month.
Important things to consider when choosing a water heater:
No flames, no fumes, no flues
Tank water heaters are affordable and available in multiple sizes and brands. And, you can enjoy flexibility of installation without worrying about the location of flues.

A new hybrid water heater, also called heat pump water heater, can cut your hot water costs in half.
Hybrid water heaters are the most efficient water heaters, saving the average household over $150 a year.

There are many reasons to switch to a hybrid water heater. Consider these features and benefits:
Benefits of Hybrid Water Heaters
Electric tankless water heating is optimal in a new construction application. Key features and benefits include:
No venting or combustion air circulation is required with an electric tankless water heater. Not only does this save you on venting and piping costs, it allows you to locate it almost anywhere in your home, saving precious storage and closet space. Plus, you can save energy by locating it near where you use most of your hot water–kitchen and baths–because you don’t have to worry about venting.
Electric tankless water heaters come in a variety of sizes, from a small 4 kW point-of-use unit for areas such as a kitchen sink, to larger 24-36 kW units that would typically serve a whole home.
It’s Endless Supply
Because an electric tankless water heater only heats water when you need it, for as long as you need it, there is an endless supply of hot water for those long showers.
It’s Clean, Quiet and Efficient
There are no combustion noises and no fumes with an electric tankless water heater.
An electric tankless water heater is up to 99% efficient and can save you money on your water heating costs.
