Electric vs Gas Water Heater

So you are in the market for a new heater - what's the best way to go? Electric or Gas?

With regards to Electric, because electric heaters do not burn fuel internally to generate heat, there are none of the associated safety risks, such as carbon monoxide poisoning or explosions. And as there are no radiators to leak or burst, there is less risk of damage to properties.

They also have lower upfront costs particularly when constructing or renovating a property. You can build faster and with greater flexibility.

In terms of peace of mind, with no annual gas or boiler servicing and little to no service or maintenance required.

So what are the benefits of Gas I hear you shout.

Well a natural gas furnace heats the air to a higher temperature than other fuels, they use less energy and the resultant factor is that it will cost you less money in the end.

The overall benefits of using natural gas to heat your home are well beyond your own pocket. ... Natural gas has the fewest emissions of any home heating fuel!

Gas heating is the most popular way of central heating across the UK. Although hugely popular, according to experts it remains one of the most inefficient in the UK, there are still over eight and a half million inefficient gas boilers in UK homes.
