Water Heater: What is a Hot Water Tank?

A simple description of a hot water tank would be that of a large, cylindrical container, with the purpose of heating and storing water in order to maintain a hot water supply to distribute throughout the home.

Most homes in Winnipeg are equipped with the above-described standard tank-type water heaters, which are typically powered either electrically, or fuel-fired. Fuel-fired units normally run on gas (natural or propane) or oil, and use a vent pipe to carry exhaust away from your home. Electric service systems, on the other hand, are fitted with a power cable that connects directly to your electric service panel.

What Does a Hot Water Tank Consist of, and How Does it Work?

As mentioned above, the purpose of a hot water tank is to heat water, as well as store it for distribution throughout the household when needed. In order to accomplish this, all tanks are built with water supply and delivery pipes. The supply, or intake, pipe allows cold water from your home’s water supply to flow to the bottom of the tank by way of a “dip tube.” The delivery pipe distributes heated water from the top of the tank to any hot water outlet that has been turned on.

As hot water flows out of the tank through the top, your tank automatically refills with cold water at the bottom, which is then heated and stored for future use. A properly functioning tank will continually repeat this cycle as needed.

In order to effectively store heated water for an extended amount of time, hot water tanks have built-in thermal insulation which reduces standby heat loss. Since hot water is not constantly in use, it is very important to make sure the tank you choose has adequate thermal insulation to ensure hot water is available whenever you need it. In addition to insulation, and because hot water tanks are made of steel, the inside of the tank is lined with glass in order to prevent corrosion.

While supply and distribution pipes, as well as insulation, are essential to storing and delivering hot water, your tank’s most crucial element is water heaters. Without a properly-operating water heaters, your tank will not be able to perform the job it was designed to perform. Water heaters in Winnipeg come in two varieties: Electric water heater and Fuel-fired water heater.

Electric Water Heater System

Electric water heaters operate by delivering a current to heating elements, or coils, within the tank, which are controlled by a thermostat. The thermostat will automatically switch the heating elements on when the water temperature dips below a set heat, and will switch them off once water reaches the desired limit.

When a hot water tap is opened, your tank will automatically refill from your home’s cold water supply. The drop in temperature caused by the influx of cool water will trigger your thermostat, and the heating element at the bottom of your tank will begin operating until all water has reached a chosen and uniform temperature. This is the mechanism of action in an electric water heater.  Now, let’s look at the mechanism of action in a fuel-fired water heater.

Fuel-Fired Water Heater System

Gas fuel-fired hot water heaters store heated water exactly like electric water heaters. However, instead of employing elements inside the tank as a heat source, gas or oil-fired heaters ignite a flame under the tank which heats the cool water entering the bottom of the tank from your home’s cold-water supply.

The heating cycle repeats itself continuously as hot water is expelled from the tank through household hot water taps and faucets. This is how a fuel-fired water heater works.

PROFESSIONAL PLUMBERS WINNIPEG | WATER HEATER REPAIR WINNIPEG While supply and distribution pipes, as well as insulation, are necessary for storing and delivering hot water, water heaters are the most important component of your tank. Your tank will not be able to do the job it was supposed to do if it does not have a properly running water heater. In Winnipeg, there are two types of water heaters: electric water heaters and fuel-fired water heaters.
ELECTRIC WATER HEATER SYSTEM Electric water heaters work by sending a current through the tank to heating elements, or coils, which are controlled by a thermostat. When the water temperature falls below a certain temperature, the thermostat will automatically turn on the heating components, then turn them off once the water temperature reaches the required level.

When you turn on the hot water tap, your tank will automatically replenish from the cold water supply in your home. Your thermostat will be triggered by the dip in temperature produced by the entrance of cool water, and the heating element at the bottom of your tank will begin to operate until all of the water has reached a desired and consistent temperature. In an electric water heater, this is the mechanism of operation. Let’s have a look at the activity of a fuel-fired water heater now.

FUEL-FIRED WATER HEATER SYSTEM Fuel-fired hot water heaters store heated water exactly like electric water heaters. However, instead of employing elements inside the tank as a heat source, gas or oil-fired heaters ignite a flame under the tank which heats the cool water entering the bottom of the tank from your home’s cold-water supply.

The heating cycle repeats itself continuously as hot water is expelled from the tank through household hot water taps and faucets. This is how a fuel-fired water heater works.

Since 1983, the organization has employed some of the greatest licensed specialists with the experience, understanding, and skill needed to help you get out of your jam. Your tank automatically refills with cold water at the bottom as hot water runs out of the tank. This cycle will be repeated indefinitely by a well functioning tank. Electric and fuel-fired water heaters are both available in Winnipeg.

As hot water is dispensed from the tank via domestic hot water taps and faucets, the heating cycle is continually repeated. A fuel-fired water heater functions in this manner. Hot water tanks and water heaters in Winnipeg are repaired and installed by us.
