Heating things with electricity is inefficient compared to heating things by burning stuff directly, but it gives you options that don't involve burning things and creating the resultant pollution (as well as avoiding the pollution from methane leaks which make the situation much worse).

Gas has got to go if we plan to stabilize the climate at a somewhat hospitable level. Ideally we would design our homes to need less electricity overall. Water can very easily be heated by solar power directly in any sunny climate, Texas being a perfect example.

Of course, we're here to find excuses as to why we should keep using fossil energy that literally threatens to kill us all here, not to think about what changes are necessary and how to accomplish them.
