What Is A Water Heater?
Water heating is the system that involves warming and disseminating water all through the establishment to showers, washing machines, dishwashers, baths, and sinks. A water heater is a unit that stores and heats water for your use.
This device basically utilizes fossil fuels or electricity for warming the water. When it is heated, the water is transferred throughout the building or home. In other buildings, water heaters may be used as space heaters, which utilizes a system of minute pipes installed onto the flooring to provide heat.
Heated water may also have a number of applications within manufacturing and other industries. There are two different types of water heaters:
Storage Water Heater
A storage water heater can be either electric or gas-powered. An electric storage water heater relies on a large tank that fills with water. Inside the tank, there are also coils or rods that heat the tank. However, a gas-powered water heater, also known as a traditional storage water heater relies on a pilot light and a fuel to heat the water inside the tank.
Traditional storage water heaters employ a range of fuels including:
- natural gas,
- and electricity.
When the water is turned on, the hot water empties from the tank and fills your plumbing system. However, when the hot water is gone, the pipes bypass the water heater and fill with cold water instead while the storage water heater fills and begins heating again. Storage water heaters can leave your home without hot water during peak demand times.

Tankless Water Heater
Opposite of storage is a tank-less water heater. This unit does not need a large holding tank for heating water. A tankless unit, also known as Demand or Instantaneous Water Heaters, provide hot water only when you need it. This saves you time, money, and space inside your home!
How does a tankless water heater really work? Cold water enters the unit via a single pipe, it passes through the heating element (either electric or traditionally powered) and exits the water heater fully heated. Simply by heating less water at a time, the tankless unit heats the water faster and more efficiently than a storage water heater like heating several small cups of water at a time rather than a single large pot.

What Breaks a Water Heater?
With regular maintenance and cleaning, water heaters should work well for faucets and household appliances. However, over time, it may be inevitable that yours will break. Some of the reasons it may break include the following:
- Disconnected Gas Or Power
- Mineral Scale Accumulation
- Temperature Pressure Relief Valve Issues
Other issues that may cause your unit to break, which require a professional repair:
- problems with the gasket of the heating element,
- vent obstructions,
- thermocouple problems,
- or a wobbly drain valve.
