Tankless Water Heaters
Most water heaters in the area are traditional tank style water heaters and vary in size. These water heaters work by heating a tank full of water through a heat source. Gas water heaters have a burner at the bottom and heat the water in the tank like a pot on a stove, while electric water heaters use elements that heat the water typically in the middle of the heater. Both methods heat the water to a desired temperature in the tank then they shut off. Once you turn on the hot water at a faucet in the home cold water enters the tank and forces the hot water out. As this happens the water in the tank begins to get cooler as the cold water enters. Once the water in the tank starts to cool down, the heating elements or burners come back on. The cold water cools the water in the tank faster than the heat source can heat it and over time the whole tank will be filled with cold water and you will be out of hot water for the home. Once the hot water faucet is turned off the system will again be able to heat up the water in the tank again. Most common issues with theses tank style water heaters are the pilot light not staying lit so the burner will not kick on because of it and you run out of hot water and the tanks tend to leak typically with age and because of the hardness and the quality of or water here in the valley.
