A gas water heater is a great way to heat your water and to ensure that you are doing the most with your overall energy consumption. A gas water heater works with a burner that is on the bottom of the heater just below the insulated tank. As the hot water is used, cold water rushes in and the thermostat senses that there is cold water that needs to be heated. The gas valve then opens and the burner ignites and allows the water to heat.
The water heater does have a valve that helps to keep the tank from overheating and blowing up. If you have a water heater that is old or that is not working properly, it is always best to get a professional company to help with water heater repairs. If you notice that your water heater is not working properly, if you find that the water isn’t heating properly, or that you are experiencing issues, a water heating company is going to be able to help you get your water heater looking and working properly.
With power vent models, the pilot light is not going to remain lit while the water heater is not in use.
