Ask Us How?
If you ever need to perform a water heater repair, then it is important to understand how your water heater
works. Let us break up the
water heater into parts to see how one might perform a water heater repair.

Water Heater Repair: Enter the Cold Water
The water heater is filled with cold water from your main water line in the house. The water travels though a
pipe that comes of the main
water line and runs though a shut off valve. This valve can be used to shut of the
water to the water heater in case the water heater needs to be drained or serviced. Once through the valve,
the
water runs down the dip tube. The dip tube extends far enough into the water heater to deliver the water
to the bottom of the tank. The
water heater tank houses the water to be heated so it can be used by the
homeowner.

Water Heater Repair: The Belly of the Beast
While the
water is in the tank it is heated. The water in the water heater is heated differently depending on
whether you have a gas
water heater or and electric water heater. The method of heating for each of these
types of
water heaters will be discussed later. At the bottom of the water heater tank there is a drain valve.
The
water heater drain valve can be used to drain the tank of all of its water in the case you need to perform
a
water heater repair, or replace the entire water heater. We do not advise anyone to drain a hot water
heater
that does not understand or know how to properly drain a water heater. If you attempt to drain the hot
water heater yourself, then please remember that the water inside the water heater tank is extremely hot,
and there is a risk of scolding or burning yourself if you fail to turn the temperature down or the burner off.

Water Heater Repair: What Goes In Must Come Out
Water in the water heater will be accessed through a pipe on the top of the water heater tank. When
someone turns the
hot water on at a sink, tub, or shower the pressure in the water heater will force to water
out of the tank through the pipe at the top of the
water heater. This hot water pipe actually extends down into
the
water heater’s interior as well. The other way hot water exits the water heater is through the overflow
pipe. The overflow pipe also comes out of the top of the
water heater, and is there when the pressure inside
the
water heater gets too high. There is a pressure relief valve connected to this pipe to contain the water
until the pressure is too great.

Water Heater Repair: The Brains Behind the Brawn
The final
water heater component we will be discussing is a thermostat of sorts. In the case of a gas water
heater
, there is a regulator on the gas supply line that feeds the burner on the water heater. This regulator
controls the intensity of the flame which in turn controls the temperature of the
water inside the water heater. It
works similarly to the way a gas grill works. The electric
water heater thermostat can be a little bit harder to
adjust. We will not be discussing this task here, but know that each
water heater is different and there is a risk
of electrocution. We advise that you contact a professional before attempting to adjust the temperature on an
electric
water heater.

Two different kinds of traditional
water heaters:
There are two different kinds of traditional
water heaters. Both types typically are considered the tank variety
of
water heater because the water is housed in a large hollow tank.

One type is the gas
water heater.  This type of water heater warms the water by means of convection.  In the
same way a convection over heats by means of moving hot air around, the hot
water heater works on the
same principle. The
water that originally goes into the tank is cold water from your main water line. This cold
water is then heated by the movement of hot air up the flue. The flue is a hollow pipe that runs up the center of
the
water heater. Hot air is generated by a gas burner at the base of the water heater. Hot air naturally rises,
so by placing the burner at the base of the
water heater and channeling it through the water heater flue you
are moving hot air up the entire length of the
water heater itself. This heat is exchanged between the hot air in
the
water heater flue, and the cold water in the water heater tank.

The other type of traditional
water heater is the electric water heater. The electric water heater works off a
different heating principle. The
electric water heater has two heating elements that heat water directly. The
water heater heating elements work similarly to the way a coil on an electric stove works. One is usually
located at the bottom of the
water heater tank, and one is usually located at the top of the water heater
tank
. Since the cold water is delivered to the bottom of the water heater tank by means of the dip tube, the
bottom coils winds up doing the brunt of the heating.  The upper coil in the
water heater serves to provide hot
water
when the supply demands on the water heater are extremely high.
