Gas Water Heaters
Most people are familiar with water heaters. They’re in most homes across the US, and those big metal cylinders are visible in laundry rooms and basements in basically every part of the country. Gas water heaters use a burner that’s at the bottom of the unit to heat water stored in a tank, and they vent through a chimney that runs up the center of the unit.
At Water Heaters NJ, we can not only handle the installation and any repairs or replacements that your gas water might need, but we’re also one of the largest suppliers of gas water heaters in New Jersey, and we carry several different brands and models.
How Gas Water Heaters Work
Even though there are newer types of water heaters available, the most popular in the United States remains the old reliable water heater: basically, a drum filled with water that’s equipped with a heating mechanism. These machines exploit the fact that heat rises so that they’re able to deliver hot water when you need it in your New Jersey home with a minimal amount of fuss. They may appear ordinary on the outside, but water heaters have a brilliant design.
There are several smaller parts of your gas water heater that all need to be working together in order for it to properly function:
- Dip tubes
- Shut-off valve
- Heat-out pipe
- Heating mechanism
- Drain valve
- Pressure relief valve
- Sacrificial anode rod
All of these smaller parts play a crucial role in the functioning and efficiency of your gas water heater. That’s why things like water heater tune-ups are so important. During a tune-up, our technicians make sure that each of these small parts is pulling their weight on the team.
