How does my water heater work?
Having a basic understanding of how your water heater works can aid you in understanding when its time to call an HVAC tech for service.Most water heaters look like big metal cylinders or tall drums. They are often found in a laundry room or basement.
Most water heaters are powered by either gas or electricity. Your water heater will have a thermostat on it which allows you to change the temperature of your hot water. If you lower your thermostat setting you can save a large amount on your energy bills each month.
Inside of the tank of your water heater is a dip tube which feeds cold water from your home’s water lines to the bottom of the tank’s interior. Inside the tank at the base is a heating mechanism, either a burner or an element. As water enters the tank it heats up and as the water heats up it naturally rises to the top of the tank. At the top of your tank is the heat-out pipe. Because of hot water’s natural tendency to rise above colder, dense water the hottest water is always found at the top of the tank.
