Although electrical units can be cheaper to purchase and install, they are more expensive to run in the long term. They do offer both indoor and outdoor installation options, which can make a hot water system more convenient depending on your needs and the unit’s purpose. Gas hot water systems are cheaper to run over the long term, offering greater energy efficiency than electrical units. Since gas rates do not fluctuate, your rate will be more consistent than with an electrical unit as well. Gas powered units are also able to offer instantaneous options, which are not available with electrical units. Solar hot water systems have gained some popularity in recent years, but they are still not as reliable as gas or even electrical units, since they rely on a good collection of energy from the solar panels. Depending on where these panels are placed, there is not enough efficiency and energy produced to run the unit. These units rely on electric and gas backups in order to provide the stability they lack. Heat pump options are the most efficient in terms of long term energy use and costs, since they extract heat from the air to heat the water tank. These do require more planning as they need a well-ventilated area for installation and function better in warmer climates.
