About Conventional Water Heaters
Water Heater Repair Specialists Serving Cambridge & Surrounding Areas
Conventional storage water heaters continue to be one of the most popular water heating systems. A conventional water heater generally holds 20 to 80 gallons of hot water. It is operated by releasing hot water from the top of the tank when the hot water tap is turned on. Cold water needs to enter the bottom of the tank in order to replace the hot water and keep the tank full.
Both gas and propane water heaters function the exact same way. Located under the tank is a gas burner with a thermostat; this opens the gas valve when the water temperature drops. The valve closes when the water temperature rises. When it comes to electric water heaters, some electric features include their own thermostats which monitor temperature. At the bottom of the tank are two electric elements that are paired with a standby element. This certifies that the thermostat is maintained throughout use.
