Propane Water Heaters
How Tank Water Heaters Work:
A propane burner keeps the water stored in the tank at a constant temperature. In less efficient electric models, a heating element is used. Tank water heaters have capacities of 30 to 100 gallons. They install just like natural-gas water heaters, using similar connections, space and venting requirements. Country Propane offers models that allow for a number of ways to vent. Conventional, direct or power-vent models are available. Consider Tank less Water Heaters. They save energy and space; plus they heat your water faster than traditional water heaters.

Propane Tank less Water Heaters
Tank less water heaters bring a new level of efficiency to your home by eliminating stand-by-losses—the energy to maintain temperature in the tank. Unlike traditional water heaters, tank less water heaters don’t heat and store water for later use. Instead they heat on demand by super-heating the water in a coil that passes through propane burners and into the hot water plumbing. Their life expectancy is more than 20 years compared to storage tank water heaters that typically last 10 to 15 years and are so labor-intensive to replace.
Tank less water heaters can fit on a wall in a supply closet or elsewhere and can take up to 93% less space than a 50-gallon water heater. This could be a factor in your decision if you are looking to conserve space in a garage, laundry room or basement.
