Electric Water Heater vs. Gas Water Heater
With their simple, reliable design, electric water heaters are an attractive option for many Chicagoland homes, but where natural gas service is available, a gas water heater may be a viable alternative. Gas is a more economical energy source than electricity, and nearly as efficient. Gas water heaters do require more maintenance and service, however, as the burners must be cleaned periodically, gas valves can malfunction, and pilot lights or igniters may fail, preventing the burners from lighting. Due to their simple design, electric water heaters are far more reliable and easier to repair.

Frequently Asked Questions About Water Heaters
How long will my electric water heater last?
With proper care and maintenance, it should last 10 to 15 years. When you need a water heater replacement, talk to our team at Black Diamond.
What maintenance is required for an electric water heater?
Ideally, any sediment in the tank should be drained once a year. The resistance of both heating elements should be measured, and the thermostat and controls should be thoroughly tested. Finally, check the tank, pressure relief valve, and drain valve for leaks. At Black Diamond, we can handle all your water heater maintenance needs.
How can I reduce my water heating costs?
Turn the water heater down to 120 degrees, and avoid excessively long showers or unnecessary hot water usage. If your water heater is in a cool area, consider adding an insulating water heater blanket. Be sure to remove the sediment annually to maintain water heater efficiency.
