What is cheaper to run gas water heater or electric water heater?

Answergas heater is cheaper by far !!!!!!AnswerThis is entirely dependent on the cost of energy in your area.AnswerTalking from experience, we installed a Titan Tankless N180 electric water heater 8 months ago and it uses approx. 300kw of power with an approximate cost of $50 per month. We have 5 members in the family, and live in Southern California. My best estimate from a comparative analysis on the gas savings is we're only saving between $10 to $15 per month.

Can a heater in a bathroom be dangerous?

Possibly. If it's a hot water radiator part of your home heating network, then no worries. If it is an electric heater, you run the risk of shorting the heater if the internals get wet. This damages the heater and can cause a shock. If you have a GFI plug in the bathroom (a plug with a little reset button on it) you reduce the risk of shock, but damage to the unit can still occur. If it is a gas heater, you must have good ventillation (an open window will not be enough) otherwise you will fill up the bathroom with exhaust fumes, making it difficult to remain alive for extended periods of time. Simply put, don't put an external heater in a bathroom.
