Water is begining to puddle under my 30 gallon gas water heater and the
people at HD told me that the liner is going on it and it needs to be
I wanted to get a 40 gallon one any way and as it turns out a friend of mine
has an electric one sitting in his garage that was used for only a month
that he is willing to GIVE to me. My friends brother had installed it and
then replaced it with gas due to the high electric bill.
The town I live in provides very inexpensive electric and switching to
electric from gas would save some money here. Don't ask me for figures
because I don't have them in front of me but I had recently switched from a
gas dryer to an electric one and had saved quite a bit in the exchange to
make it worth my while.
My question is: does anyone see any potential problems with a water heater
that has been used and then sat in a garage (cold winter in NE) for over a
year and a half? Is there a major quality difference in a gas vs. electric?]
Thanks for the help,
