Frequently Asked Questions about Gas Hot Water Systems

Yes, while gas systems have higher initial costs, they are cheaper to run overall.

Over the course of a year, you could save up to one third of your annual energy bills by switching from electric to gas powered hot water.

Common signs of a faulty unit include:

  • Leaks from the tank
  • Unusual noises
  • Inconsistent hot water
  • Rust on the tank exterior or in your water
  • Pilot light keeps going out
  • Running out of hot water

If you are experiencing any of these issues, it’s likely time for a professional service.

  • How many people in your household?
  • Do you have water saving fixtures in your home?
  • When will you use the hot water?
  • Does your dishwasher or washing machine use hot water?

You’ll then want to determine whether a storage tank or instantaneous system will better suit your hot water needs. You will also need to know if you have a connection to a natural gas supply, how much space you have, and more.
