Whether it is a gas. oil, electric or tank less every single home needs a water heater. For washing or dishes, cloths, showers or just general cleaning . We can not go very long without hot water shower fixtures . Well at least comfortably. So how does a hot water heater work ? The water coming in from your plumbing and bathroom sink faucets is mildly warm because it is coming from pipes that are in the ground. Call Creative Living Plumbing Virginia Beach.
Once you get about 4 feet in the earth the temperature is around 70 degrees. The outside temperature does not effect the water this far down. But it is not warm enough to take a shower in. So you are going to need to heat it. On average a hot water heater hold about 40 to 60 gallons of heated water. About 3 normal showers.

As the tank is full it has a thermometer that once the water is heated it shuts of to conserve energy. The electric water heaters element unit is down at the bottom. And a gas water heater has a burner down at the bottom with a vent tube to expel any extra toxic fumes that may be created.
This vent usually goes to the roof. On average a Plumbing Virginia Beach contractor can set the thermostat between 120 and 180 degrees but if you set it high not only will the life of your water heater be shortened but you will have water so hot coming out it could be dangerous and possibility burn someone . The dip tube is where the water inters and is heated and the heat out pipe is where the heated water exits after it has been heated. Most hot water heaters Virginia Beach have a overflow pan for possible water heater leaking or condensation but if there is a pipe break or the tank busts there is really no way to catch all the water. By nature it is always safest to place your hot water heater in a place where there is concrete or some hard flooring underneath it in case of a problem. Wood is usually placed between the hot water heater and concrete to keep it from rusting.In recent years tank less hot water heaters Virginia Beach has gotten more and more popular . Simply put it is a hot water heater with no tank. The water travels through the heater as needed . Rinnai is probably one of the most popular brands of water heater installation on the market and has great water heater reviews.
