The water heater is one of the busiest appliances in most family homes. It produces the water for showers, washing the dishes, taking a bath, and even hot water bottles. Being a well utilized system is a bonus for the people living in the home, but can become a significant expense when it goes wrong.
There are several types of water heater that can be found in any property. They include solar, indirect water heaters, heat pumps, demand, and storage. Each one offers different things to different situations. Solar is becoming an ever more popular solution as it is relatively cost and maintenance free once installed. The most common heater in America at the moment is the storage water heater. They range from a small twenty gallon, to a large eighty and can be fueled by gas, oil, propane or electricity. They are relatively simple devices really. They are made up of a large vessel with inlet and outlet pipes for the water and a coil inside. When the heater raises the temperature of the water, the coil heats up and warms up the water inside the vessel. When it reaches its desired temperature, a thermostat turns off the heat and the water slowly cools. This process repeats for as long as hot water is required in the home.
Water heaters, with the exception of solar, can be quite expensive to run, which is why we have put together a few tips to help you save a few dollars but getting the most out of the heater.
