When many homeowners think about propane or oil-fired home comfort equipment, they often focus on furnaces or boilers. But the U.S. Department of Energy has found that water heating accounts for almost 20% of total energy use in the average home.
Doesn’t it make sense to have the best possible equipment in place for such a big part of your home budget — not to mention your quality of life?
Tasha Fuels & Propane sells, installs and services both propane and oil-fired water heaters, including tankless appliances that can provide unlimited hot water at a fraction of the cost of a standard tank model. We guarantee that we can offer you an ideal water heating solution that matches your needs and your budget.
Are your showers turning lukewarm? Do you have to stand around twiddling your thumbs waiting for the water to warm up?
The life expectancy of a tank water heater varies but can go as high as 13 years. Here are some identifiable warning signs that your water heater might be nearing retirement:
The key thing to remember is: Don’t wait for your water heater to break before giving us a call! You could end up living without hot water while we secure your equipment. Stay ahead of the game, and we can work together to find the best replacement for your struggling unit. Then we can get it installed in a day, with minimal disruption to your daily life.
Our team is also available for emergency repairs around the clock. Even if you aren’t a regular Tasha customer, we are there for you!
If you’re already taking the leap on a new water heater, we strongly encourage you to consider going with a tankless propane model. A tankless water heater can transform your quality of life and make a huge dent in your fuel costs.
Tankless water heaters use a powerful flame activated by a flow sensor that kicks on when you open a hot water tap. The unit heats water as your need it instead of continuously reheating water in a storage tank. This produces a hot water flow rate of approximately 222 gallons per hour — three times the delivery rate of a 50-gallon electric tank water heater!
What does this mean for your home?
First and foremost, you’ll have a reliable and constant supply of hot water. No more choosing between running the dishwasher and taking a shower!
Also, since you’re no longer reheating unused water, your energy expenses will be noticeably lower. According to a recent Consumer Reports article, propane tankless water heaters are approximately 22% more efficient than traditional storage tank models. The expert technicians at Tasha Fuels & Propane will be happy to take you through your options to see if a tankless water heater is right for you.
