Electric water heaters have some advantages over gas heaters. At a mile above sea level, there is less oxygen in the Denver air, which means that gas appliances either need to be modified or run less efficiently. Electricity is not affected by altitude and does not require added modifications to work in Denver. Additionally, a tankless electric water heater installation is cheaper and easier than gas because it does not require any ventilation and all homes and businesses are outfitted with electricity, while not every building is supplied with natural gas. No matter your reasons for an electric water heater in Denver, Afford-A-Rooter Plumbing has the expert plumbers to repair, maintain, and install them.
Tank holding gas water heaters are the most common type of water heater in Denver and carry a host of benefits. Gas does not rely on the power grid to heat water, and will work during a blackout; therefore, it won’t disrupt your routine when there is no power. If you have a tank holding water heater, gas will recover faster during times of increased hot water usage. Gas does have its cons; a gas heater is pricier than an electric water heater installation and will have a shorter lifespan. Afford-A-Rooter Plumber has 15 years of experience working with all manner of gas water heaters, so you can trust your water heating needs to us.
