If you want to go on the "cheap" side and be the most efficient for your dollar, go with like a 30-40 gal tank with the propane or natural gas. The below link from EERE will help you size up the tank you need.

If you go a little further on the efficiency, you'll also get some tax credits.

Just my opinion......I would go tank type condensating W.H (if you want efficienty) B-4 I would go tankless.Tankless is going to cost in $1500.00 + range installed .Cheap would be regular tank type..I would check propane vs elec.prices in your area
