Your water heater is a simple but integral piece of equipment in your home that constantly works to provide you and your family with hot water. Don’t let your morning shower be the only time you think of your water heater. Rather, have a look at our handy list of do’s and don’ts to ensure that your water heater is functioning properly.
How Water Heaters Work
When water enters you home through a system of pipes, it is usually cold. That means if you want a hot shower in the morning or a warm bath to relax in after work, you’ll need something to heat your household water first. This is where a water heater comes into play. It has a heating mechanism at the bottom of the tank that warms up the entering water, which then flows to the top of the tank and is siphoned off and used as warm or hot water.
