Gas Tank Water Heater Reviews

Gas tank water heaters are great for homes where there is a gas line already leading into the area where the water heater will be installed.

Many times when you buy a house, the previous owner or builder has already established what form of power your heater will use. To convert to electric from gas, for instance, can require both electrical work and stoppage of gas lines.

Gas tank water heaters cost more than their electric brethren, but they are easier on the utility bills each month and will usually pay for themselves within a few years of savings.

They also are not too difficult to install. Installation costs with water heaters can climb rapidly, so buying a model that you can put in yourself (with the help of a friend to initially lift it into place) can save you hundreds of dollars, thousands if you are considering a large or multiple tankless option.

The primary issue with gas tank heaters is the pilot light. Some models have frequent pilot light cut-offs, according to consumers, and stooping down to re-light that flame can be quite bothersome. Check customer reviews to find the models that have pilot lights that stay alight; you will be thankful for your careful shopping as you have consistent hot water and do not have to make frequent trips to the basement to check the status of the pilot.
