Water Heater and their Types and How they work

Water Heater

A water heater is a tool used to heat water for usage in a residence. They are a crucial component of every house and perform a number of tasks, including heating showers, dishwashers, washing machines, and other appliances. 

Water heaters supply hot water for a number of domestic functions, such as showering and doing the dishes. Additionally, they conserve energy by heating water on demand rather than letting it flow cold until it is heated. 

Types of Water Heaters  

Electric Water Heater: The most popular kind of heater is an electric heater, which is available in two models: storage and immediate. In contrast to immediate heaters, which provide hot water on demand, storage heater store heated water in a tank.  

Gas Water Heater: The most often used type of heater for homes is gas, which is also available in tankless and storage models. Tankless gas water heaters produce hot water on demand, while storage gas water heaters store heated water in a natural gas line. 

Tankless Water Heater: Tankless heaters are a relatively recent style of heater that is gaining popularity. Instead of boiling the water in a tank, they heat it as it flows through the device. By doing so, standby energy losses are eliminated, and you may spend less on plumbing and water heating services overall. 

How does it Work?  

With the exception of how the water is heated, electric and gas heaters perform essentially identically. The water is drawn into the tank through the dip tube and heated there. When you need it, warm water is then available to you. For more information on how to diagnose problems with both a gas and an electric heater.
