HOW THEY WORK

They can be installed anywhere, produce no fumes or flames and don't require combustible fuels. The temperatures produced by water heaters are closely controlled. Buying and installing an electric hot-water heater costs a lot less than an oil- or gas-fired system.The 40 gallon size is just right for a typical family of four, while the 60 gallon model is a good choice for the needs of a larger household. Programmable timers can be installed on electric water heaters to help reduce energy usage.

The lifespan of an electric water heater is around 15 years, although it can be longer. They are the most affordable option to purchase and install compared to other fuel sources like oil, natural gas, or propane. The average cost is between $500 and $1,000, and because they are so efficient, the average electric hot water heater in Nova Scotia costs about $1.30 per day.

Electric water heaters are easy to install and have smaller space requirements than some gas and oil hot water heaters.
