Benefits of Gas & Propane Water Heaters
Gas and propane water heaters are commonly used in suburban homes for several reasons, including:
- They heat water quickly
- They have large tanks
- They are fairly inexpensive to operate

For example, in areas with hard water or water with heavy mineral content, it is extremely common for water heaters to collect sediment in the tanks. Regular inspection and testing services take time to drain the tank, in an effort to prevent significant amounts of buildup.
