6 Benefits of Installing a Propane Water Heater

Posted on Sun, Apr 29, 2018 @ 02:25 PM

Water heaters are an essential home appliance that affect your lifestyle, but many people don’t realize that water heaters account for a large portion of your home’s energy bills.

The price of off-peak power in Ontario has skyrocketed 149 per cent over the past decade, with on-peak power up 71 per cent.
