Standard electric water heaters are a good choice if you don't have a gas line or exhaust vent. They are affordable, but they don't use energy efficiently. Monthly utility bills can be higher than for gas heaters. You'll notice the same warranty options with electric water heaters. If you buy a quality electric water heater and keep it maintained, it should last 12-15 years. If need hot water in a home addition, finished basement or small apartment, consider a tankless electric water heater. They save energy costs because you only heat water you use. If sized correctly, they will deliver continuous hot water for as long as you need it.
If you're looking for green-energy options, consider a hybrid water heater. Electric hybrid models employ heat pump technology. Like an HVAC heat pump, they circulate refrigerant to collect heat from the air. The heat is then used to warm the water in the tank. An electric hybrid water heater costs more than a standard electric model, but it uses about half the energy. Lower monthly electric bills will begin to pay you back immediately.
