I have a 315L electric water heater thats 20+yrs old so i suppose it is pretty near to its end of life. I also hv gas in house for cooking and heating in winters.
Wondering when i replace the water heater, should i swap with an electric one or go continuous gas heater? The water heater is running on off-peak costs about $25 monthly. I had a plumber come to quote for instant gas heater and he tells me its hard to do as water pipe needs to be upgraded to thicker one for instant heating and as the pipe is in the walls will be expensive proposition for instant gas one.
So option is to replace with electrical or get continuous gas? Question i have is will continuous gas water heater be much cheaper in runnings as I will hv to pay more for that install ($500-600) vs just replacing electric.
thanks so much
