HOW HOT WATER TANKS WORK
Hot water tanks are either electric or fuel-fired. Each type of unit heats water differently.
Electric: These units use electrical currents and heating elements at the top and bottom of the unit to deliver power. A switch senses the water temperature, closing to allow current flow and opening when it reaches the pre-set temperature.
Fuel-fired: These units utilize a burner that’s fed gas through a control valve and thermostat switch. The burner is usually at the bottom of the tank, heating water by first heating the tank itself.
Hot water tanks can also be used in conjunction with radiant heating systems to heat your home through the floorboards.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT HOT WATER TANK FOR YOUR PRINCE GEORGE HOME
Because hot water tanks are not a one-size-fits-all piece of equipment, picking the right tank requires forethought and consideration of a number of factors, including:
Fuel type: Depending on your location and the frequency you need water heated, you will need to decide between electric or fuel-fired (usually natural or propane gas) tanks.
Water use: The size of your house, the number of people living there and how much water you use per day will also affect which type and size of hot water heater your Prince George home needs.
Unit size: Available in different sizes, hot water tanks can hold anywhere from 25-50 gallons of water. Your water use will determine what size tank you should purchase.
