What Are The Different Types Of Water Heaters?
There are various types of water heaters, however the most common one you will find in many homes is the Storage Water Heater. They have a large tank where the heated water is stored and can either be electric powered or gas powered. The gas water heater provides faster heating and is more expensive whereas the electric water heater provides slower heating and is less expensive.
How The Water Heater Works
The Electric and Gas-Powered Water Heaters work the same way.
- The cold water pipe brings the water to be heated to the bottom of the tank where the heating elements are located.
- As the water warms, it rises to the top to be used on demand. If the water is not being used immediately, it remains in the storage tank and continues to heat.
Common Water Heater Problems
Water Runs Out Quickly
If you are running out of water faster than usual in your home, there could be a problem somewhere. If your family is big, the problem could be due to the size of your water heater. However, if you are barely able to go through a shower with enough water, then there is a big problem.
Rusty Water is a clear indication that something is wrong with your plumbing. If the hot and cold water comes out rusty, then the pipes are where the problem is. If it is just the hot water that comes out rusty, your water heater might be the problem.
No Hot Water
The most obvious sign that you need to call a professional is when there’s no hot water. It could be as a result of many things like the temperature being set too low considering the temperature outside. You may need to increase the temperature of the thermostat.
A good water heater is usually relatively quiet while working and the most you’ll hear is a low humming sound. If you start to hear strange sounds from your water heater, then you need to contact a professional.
When Should You Call Us?
Your water heater comes with a manual and some simple water heater problems can be fixed with the aid of a manual. However, the problem is more technical sometimes and you need a professional. If you are not about what’s wrong, and need an expert to check things out, call us anytime to take a look!
