Water Heaters

Electric water heaters are an economical and safe heating option.

They can be installed anywhere, produce no fumes or flames and don't require combustible fuels. Plus, the temperatures produced by water heaters are closely controlled.

Buying and installing an electric hot-water heater also costs a lot less than an oil- or propane-fired system. You'll find 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.
