Another advantage of traditional gas water heaters is that they’ll still work in the event of a power outage. For families of four or more people, a gas heater is usually a better choice over electric, as an electric heater is likely to have trouble keeping up with the hot water demands of a larger family.
The main disadvantage of an electric water heater is the relatively slow recovery rate. A typical 50 gallon tank will usually require several hours to recover. Also, electric units are vulnerable to power outages, and will not work in the event of one.
You have the three choices based on your preferences and the needs of your household. Good luck!
