Electric vs. propane tankless water heaters
Hi all. I’ve heard a lot about this forum through the FHB podcast.
So I currently have a propane water heater that is power vented. I have this because the basement is prone to flooding. I would like to go tankless. I’m wondering about electric vs propane. We have 1 bathroom, washing machine, and dishwasher. There are 2 adults and three kids. My current propane is about $75/month, and all we do is heat water w/ it. Also, I live in a cold climate, the Western foothills of Maine near Sugarloaf Mountain in Franklin County. So I would appreciate your thought on electric vs propane. Propane is more expensive up front and their are the concerns about venting. Electric is more efficient, but not sure how much more my electric bill would be. Would appreciate your thoughts.
