Millcreek Plumbing offers a wide selection of electric water heaters. Electric water heaters are one of the most cost-efficient ways to supply hot water. Electric water heater units are relatively low in cost and use heating elements to keep water at temperature. Because they use electricity, there are more options for placement of the tank.
