Do you know what type of water heater you have in your house?
Based on different factors water heaters can be classified as gas fired, propane fired, electric & hybrid water heaters. Also water heaters comes with different forms storage tank type and tankless (On Demand) types.
The most common water heater in our area is the Tank type water heater. Most residential tank type water heaters has a capacity to carry 30 to 50 gallons of water which is typically enough for a family. This type of water heater is mostly made of steel, which is glass-lined on the inside to help prevent corrosion. All tanks also have an anode rod to control corrosion. The rod protects the tank by corroding in place of the steel. Because the rod is designed to corrode, it will eventually wear away. After this happens, corrosion of the steel accelerates. In fact, corrosion of the steel leads to hole on the tank which is the primary reason that tanks leaks or fail.
Tankless water heaters on the other hand has no storage tank. When there is a need for hot water, the cold water travels through a pipe into the tankless heater which either a gas burner or an electric element heats the water. As a result, tankless water heaters deliver a constant supply of hot water on demand.
