Water Heater and the Landlord - Las Vegas, NV?

Your landlord is nuts. There is NO TENANT portion to a hot water heater expense. Zero. 100% his and he is required by law to provide one, as well as provide earth quake straps. None of that was "optional", it is ALL required by law. You sue his butt if he tries to withhold from this. If he does you go down to your local building office, they will supply you with the actual law papers you need to present to the judge to prove you in fact owe nothing. I would be suprised if any judge did not know the basic water heater laws, but it always looks good.

4. The 5 Best Electric Tankless Water Heaters of 2021

If you are reading this article, you likely already know that electric tankless water heaters are pretty great. They take up dramatically less space than traditional tank heaters, they are ultra-efficient, eco-friendly, and can save you some serious money over time. Plus, who does not want access to an endlessly hot shower, on-demand? So out of all the options, what is the best electric tankless water heater? To answer that question, we've combed through lots of the best whole house electric tankless water heater reviews and summaries. Read on for our top picks, and learn how to choose the tankless water heater that's right for you. Now that we are all warmed up, let's take a closer look at eat of our top picks. The ECO 27 is one of the best rated electric tankless water heaters, and is available at a lot of retailers, so you can keep an eye out for sales. It also comes in a variety of "sizes" for different kilowatt and voltage levels, so you can purchase the one that's just right for your climate, usage, and electrical setup. The ECO 27 is in the upper mid-range of those options and is our choice for the best whole house electric tankless water heater. It provides enough on-demand hot water for some of the most common scenarios, such as: running two showers simultaneously or being able to shower at the same time someone is running the dishwasher elsewhere. EcoSmart is one of the most trusted tankless water heater brands. Their extremely efficient electric heaters have patented self-modulating technology, which helps them continually meet hot water demand, even in colder climates. Two in a row for EcoSmart! The EcoSmart ECO 18 is an excellent middle-of-the-road tankless water heater, at a slightly more affordable price than our overall pick. The unit itself is very compact, energy-saving, and easier to install than many heaters. (Professional installation is still recommended.) This economical water heater is perfect for apartments, townhomes, condominiums, and other similarly sized homes. It provides a flow rate of up to 2.73 gallons per minute, which is about what you need for a long, hot shower. If you live in a warmer climate, you may be able to get away with running a second shower or another sink at the same time. The ECO 18 might struggle in colder climates, however. If you live someplace with cold incoming water temperatures or in a home with lots of people, we recommend upping your budget and going with one of the other water heaters on our list. All our picks for electric tankless water heaters are inherently earth-friendly choices because they are all so much more efficient than traditional tank heaters. But the very energy efficient Rheem RETEX-27 is our choice for the best eco-friendly tankless heater. It lasts a long time and has self-regulating technology that makes it up to 99.9% energy efficient. It's easy to maintain and features durable parts with easy-to-replace heating elements. Like other tankless water heaters, the RETEX-27 will only kick on when you turn on the hot water. This dramatically cuts down on loss of heat and can save you up to 60% in overall heating costs. It also has an adjustable digital temperature control, so you can dial in on your perfect temperature within 1-degree increments. Some of us require more hot water, in more locations, more often. If you have a large family or live in a house where multiple people (or appliances) require hot water at the same time, you will need an electric water heater with a more powerful output. Our favorite option is the Stiebel Tempra 36 Plus. What makes this Stiebel water heater different? "Tempra Plus models feature Advanced Flow Control, patented in Germany and exclusive to Stiebel Eltron tankless heaters. If hot water demand exceeds working capacity, Advanced Flow Control automatically maintains consistent temperatures by slightly reducing flow." Which basically means you can run 2-4 bathrooms at a time with consistently hot water, depending on your climate. The most important thing with a higher-voltage electric water heater is to make sure that your home has enough amperage to be able to handle it. In the case of this Stiebel model, your home needs to have 300A of "minimum recommended household electric service" in order to run this tankless water heater. Sometimes you need an on-demand electric water heater for a smaller or single application, such as a sink, washing machine, or dishwasher. If that's the case, the ECOTOUCH 9kW instant water heater is a handy and relatively affordable option. This compact point of use heater uses energy sparingly, clocking in at 99.8% efficient; the unit even self-adjusts based on the incoming temperature and flow rate to use as little energy as possible. The ECOTOUCH features a sleek modern design that barely takes up much space at all, measuring 15.4(H) x 10.3(W) x 2(D). Users also appreciate its touch control panel and easy-to-read digital display. Besides its higher upfront cost, a tankless water heater is going to beat a traditional tank heater in nearly every category. But if you are trying to decide between gas vs. electric tankless water heaters, here are a few arguments in favor of going electric: Electric tankless water heaters are safer and easier to maintain. While electric water heaters require maintenance and regular flushing, they do not need the frequent careful inspections required of gas heaters. There also is not any potential for gas leaks with an electric heater. Electric tankless water heaters are cheaper upfront. As we've seen on our list, electric heaters are certainly not cheap, but tankless gas water heaters can cost twice as much as electric ones. The overall cost to run a water heater will hugely depend on the climate and utility costs where you live. Still, electric water heaters make a little less of a dent in the pocketbook initially. Electric tankless water heaters are easier to install. -but still require a professional! Most everyone has electrical hookups in their house, but not everyone has natural gas. Electric tankless heaters are generally smaller and less complicated than gas heaters, and they do not require any special venting. How to Choose the Best Tankless Electric Water Heaters Overall, "sizing" an electric water heater can be a complicated and challenging task because it's so dependent on the environment, the number of people, and the electricity use of a particular household. We recommend doing your homework no matter which type you buy - many tankless water heater manufacturers offer customized help in determining exactly which water heater is right for you.

HELP Frozen Hot Water Heater!!!!?????Pipes!!?
You have a branch line past the spigot that is frozen in some place. First you need to shut off the circuit breaker to your water heater. You may have already burnt up the heating elements in the water heater if it has no water in it. Anyway shut off the breaker to the hot water heater. Check for gaps in the skirting around your water heater, plug up all the gaps as tight as possible. Now purchase a heat tape and wrap it around the exposed pipe under the trailer. Cover the heat tape with some insulation wrapped loosely over the heat tape - then plug the heat tape in - make sure light comes on indicating the heat tape is working. This may take several hours for the heat tape to unfreeze the obstruction. Also open the panel to your water heater and put a heat tape on it also on the incoming cold water line. I know it's cold work but it needs to be done and done right to allow you to have water in this cold weather. When you finally get a flow of water from your hot water faucets - then you can flip that circuit breaker back on for the water heater.1. Chronic Flame Sensor Failure - Furnace and Water HeaterI have had issues with gas lines having moisture problems ,and causing failures. I had drip legs in the gas line but had to install longer ones and drain them 2x per year to eliminate the problem. A drip leg is usually close to the appliance just after The shutoff valve. A drip leg is a T with a single dead or capped off pipe pointing down. A drip leg catches liquid and chunks in the gas line that can cause valve and ignition problems. If you do not have a drip leg you might want to install one after The shutoff valve at the furnace. If you do have one it may need to be drained, to drain turn the gas off, make sure any pilots have gone out and you have fresh air available. Remove the cap from the drip leg and if water flows out you probably found your cause. Make sure when reassembling to use gas rated pipe dope or tape (it is usually yellow). After reassembly and pressurizing make sure to leak test the drip leg with a bubble solution to verify there are no leaks. How long is long enough for a drip leg? I have had homes that only had 4" long legs to the home that had lots of water in the gas needing 12-18" having that much water is unusual but it will cause valve and ignition problems as the water/oil? Contamination causes hot surface igniters to fail. Your problem sounds similar so I would check that as it is something you can do.2. Is there a water shut off switch for the water heater?There should be a turn-off somewhere in the line to just shut it off there. Follow the line back until you find it3. Is there a way to convert a Natural Gas water heater to LPG?In answer to your question, yes you can make a conversion, but it would be beneficial to employ the knowledge of a skilled person, generally i give advice to all types of home projects, but Gas is something you should leave to the experts. A guy traveling down from heaven was met by a guy on the way up, the guy on the way down, said hey buddy do you know anything about gas boilers, the guy on the way up, said no way man, but what do you know about gas fires? They were traveling in opposite directions but the result was the same. The moral of the story, hire a professional, if he makes a mistake, at least your feet are still on the ground. Good luck Paul M.4. How to remove sulfur odor in hot water heater?Most water heaters have an anode tube. This will have to be removed. However, this will shorten the life of the heater but this will probably be a good trade off. There is another type of tube to use but I can not remember what it's called. Maybe someone else will log on give you the information. Regards, Dale.
Service Life and Precautions of Water Heater
When I came home during the Spring Festival, I found that the water heater in my home was "old age".It has been sticking to its post for nearly 13 years. It is not easy to live so tenaciously after going through repair and mending. The old people at home uphold the excellent traditional virtue of diligence and thrift and mend for another year.Fortunately, it broke down again this time, and under the strong replacement requirements of Xiaobian, the family is finally going to usher in a new water heater.Diligence and thrift are indeed commendable, but household appliances have a service life. If they exceed the service life and fail, there are potential safety hazards even after maintenance, so replacement should be considered.China Household Appliances Association has already issued a series of standards for "safe service life of household appliances", which clearly defines the safe service life of water heater: the service life of electric water heater is 8 years.Water heaters that have exceeded their service life may have the following problems:1. Increased energy consumption;2. Accidents are easy to occur, because exceeding the service life will lead to the aging of components and increase the possibility of leakage;3. In case of safety problems, the manufacturer will no longer bear the responsibility and cannot claim;4. The function design is backward and inconvenient to use.Take our water heater as an example. Before it broke down completely, there had been several times of non combustible fire, and the bottom of the shell was rusty and dripping water from time to time.The key is that our water heater was designed more than ten years ago. We need to rotate the knob to adjust the fire power and temperature. The key is that we can't adjust to the specific temperature value. We can only choose high temperature and low temperature, which is very unwise.The use experience is getting worse and worse. The water temperature goes up when the water is a little smaller. Taking a bath in summer is like drenching down with water at 70 or 80 degrees.Another potential safety hazard is that it is a direct row water heater. There is no suction and exhaust device in the direct row water heater.When the water heater burns water, it sucks in indoor air to participate in the combustion of liquefied petroleum or natural gas, consuming oxygen in the indoor space. Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and other waste gases generated in the combustion process are directly discharged indoors. When the oxygen in the indoor space is exhausted, the concentration of toxic gas increases.If it happens that the bathroom is closed, the air is not circulating, and people inhale for too long, it will directly lead to carbon monoxide poisoning and loss of life in serious cases. Fortunately, the country has already banned the production and sales of direct row water heaters.It is also suggested that when installing the gas water heater, it is best to choose the ventilation place on the balcony or kitchen.When choosing the water heater this time, I also had a good understanding of the common sense of the water heater.One of them is the liter. The liter of water storage water heater refers to the amount of water that can be stored in the water tank. The liters of gas water heater can be understood as the heating capacity, which refers to how many liters of water can be increased by 25 ℃ per minute.For example, 10L gas water heater can raise 10L water by 25 ℃ per minute. The larger the number of liters, the higher the heating energy consumption, hot water volume and heating time.When we choose the gas water heater, we choose the number of liters according to the specific use needs at home, not the bigger the better.If there is a kitchen and a bathroom for 2-3 people, generally 10-12 liters of hot water is enough. If the family has a large population and is still a double bathroom, a water heater with a large number of liters can be appropriately selected to meet the hot water demand.Another point is that it is best to choose a thermostatic water heater. You can use hot water with appropriate temperature in summer or winter to ensure the comfort of shower.At present, the water heaters on the market can basically adjust to specific temperature values and ensure constant temperature, so that consumers can have a more comfortable and satisfactory use experience.In short, any electrical appliance has a service life. For electrical products that often fail beyond the safe service life, the best solution is to replace them. After all, safety comes first.The service life of the water heater is 8 years. It should be checked regularly during use to prevent explosion risk caused by gas leakage. It is best to install it in the ventilated place of balcony and kitchen to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning.In the selection of liters, consider the use habits and needs of the family, not the most expensive, but the most comfortable.Editor ajx
Landlord Installed New 30 Gallon Electric Water Heater, Is It True Only a 10 Minute Shower?
The water heater is too small for the amount of people. You should have at least a 40 gallon. The preferred would have been a 50. But thats renting for you. They go the aka cheapest route1. Why would a new electric water heater blow breaker?You may have it wired backwards. Breaker could be weak. or over loaded. The new heater may be drawing to many amps for the breaker, just a thought. Good luck. ww2. should i wrap my amtrol electric water heater with insulation?Most new-ish water heaters already have a lot of insulation. Adding more will never even recoup the cost of that insulation. It wo not hurt anything though, so long as you do not cover up any vents.3. My hot electric water heater produces hot water, but there is water on the floor?It could be either one. Check all the fittings on top of tank. Most warrantys are 5 years4. Is connecting a 16A plug to 10A sockets for an electric water heater a problem?First thing you need to check out the wire size in there. If wire size 4sq.mm or above you can change the 10 A socket to 16A5. moving electric water heater to old shower coveYou can move the water heater to just about anywhere that would be convenient. However, it is not a good idea to reduce the size down from 3/4" to 1/2" directly off of the tank. You will likely run into issues with water pressure. In branch plumbing, it is best to keep the size of the pipe at its maximum until it branches off to a specific fixture. Most fixtures, with the exception of a toilet takes 1/2". A toilet is actually reduced to 5/8" by the time it gets to the fill valve. 5/8" is an odd size in plumbing, so most plumbers typically run 1/2" anyway.You should try to extend the 3/4" pipe as far as you can go, and then tee off of it using multiple 3/4 x 3/4 x 1/2 tees. When you tee off, try to make that run directly to a fixture without teeing off again. This will greatly help keep the water pressure balanced. If all of the plumbing is 1/2", then the fixtures will compete against each other for water because there is not enough volume of water coming through the pipe6. What is a Electric Water Heater Timer?Basic timer switch at power source to water heater. Allows user to turn wAter heater on and off at certain hrs. For example, on at 5 am, off at 9 am then on at 4 pm and off at 9 pm. Nine hours instead of 24 constantly reheating same water7. I have to continuously press the reset button on my electric water heater?The reset is failing. You need to service it. it is telling you that there is a short in the unit. It could be a heating element starting to short out. It could be the thermostat going bad. Those are the 2 most common things to go on a electric unit. Unless you know how to remove the element I would call the plumber or a friend that has this type of knowladge. It's not hard you just need the right tool and knowladge8. My Mobile home electric water heater has a leak but i cant find the cold water shut off, can anyone help?good advice from gilfinn. I would also drain the heater to stop the leak completely. Hook a hose to the drain, open the spigot and let it drain out. You might have to open a hot water spigot in the bathroom or kitchen also so the water will flow.9. Electric water heater leaks around the top, how do I fix it?By design it is always filled to capacity, it is a pressure tank. Do not mess with the relief valve, it is there to prevent the tank from exploding due to malfunction causing overheating (if you are curious about that just do an internet search of boiler explosions). Do not turn off the water supply and drain the tank without also turning off the heat source (electric or gas, by the way?). you (or a plumber) should be able to determine if the fittings are leaking and repair them if they are. If the tank itself is compromised you need to replace the whole unit
Heat Pump Water Heaters: an Introductory Review
The goal of this review is to provide concise information for people who are keen to find out about one of the fastest developing technologies and its applications for household use. A heat pump is simply a machine that transfers heat in its immediate environment to a desired medium. The source of heat for these machines can be the surrounding air or the heat from the ground as we see in GeoExchange units. Most heat pumps are used as space heaters while some provide hot water for domestic use. The bulky heat pumps heat water at a slower pace when compared to regular tank water heaters. Their weakness is compensated by electric heating units that are included in their system. The electric heaters start working when the main heating unit is unable to provide hot water at a sufficient rate. This dual heating system is the reason we also call them hybrid water heaters. People who go shopping are often confounded by the wide range of choices and find it very hard to choose the most desirable item. If what you are shopping for, is the best heat pump water heater, you will face a different problem. What makes it hard to find to find the best hybrid water heater is the dearth of choices rather than the abundance of them. This is a technology that has recently found its way to consumer markets and not all major manufacturers have come up with a hybrid, yet. Fortunately, knowing the basic aspects of these appliances can greatly faciliate your search. Thanks to the extensive reviews produced by government agencies on energy efficient water heaters, we have lots of unbiased data to assess the quality of heat pump devices. You need to become familiar with terms such as energy factor and first hour rating and consider your hot water demands so that you can get a unit that has enough capacity to keep up with your rate of hot water use. One feature that is very difficult to assess about a heat pump water heater is the durability. Paying thousands of dollars for water heating device, you have every right to ask if it is going to last for at least a decade. While the product manual will tell you little about this issue, there are a few ways to make sure you get a device that will be working long after you forget the day you purchased it. First, you should find and read by honest reviewers whose primary goal is to inform you on the issue. Next, you should get your unit from a reputable brand rather than a cheap brand that depends on overseas suppliers. A heat pump is high-end appliance and you should be ready to pay a generous sum, if you want to enjoy its benefits fully.
Gas Water Heater Vs. Electric: What's Better for Your Home & Wallet?
The 'natural gas water heater vs. electric' debate can seem a bit confusing. After all, the end result with either is the same (your water gets hot) so surely they must be more or less interchangeable? In this post, we are going to explore the difference between gas and electric water heaters to help you decide which is best for your home. We wo not just stop there, though; this article will also touch on tankless, heat pump, and solar water heaters to give you a full picture of your available options. Gas Water Heater vs. Electric: Why Should You Care? First, let's address the question raised in the first sentence of this article: whether or not the debate even matters. Well, your water heater is responsible for up to 18% of your energy use at home, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. As such, ensuring you have the most efficient unit based on your needs (your neighbor's needs may not be the same as yours) can save you a substantial chunk of money every month. Of course, when choosing between a gas water heater or an electric one, you also need to consider the cost of the unit itself. Different types of water heaters come in at different price points, which may heavily influence your ultimate decision as well. Gas Water Heater or Electric: Factors To Consider Let's look at each type of water heater individually to establish an understanding of their characteristics before we compare them head-to-head. In the interest of transparency, we will note that our Phoenix water heaters include both electric and gas-powered units. In other words, we do not have a preference; we are more interested in helping you decide which unit is truly right for your home. As its name would suggest, this type of water heater uses natural gas. Cold water enters the tank and gets heated by a gas burner. As the water warms, it rises to the top of the tank and is led through a discharge pipe and out of your faucets or showerheads as needed. Now, this is a very simple explanation of how water heaters work. If you've read our article about pilot light malfunction, for example, you will know that water heaters come with some very ingenious mechanisms that ensure safe function. While gas water heater explosions do happen, these mechanisms (which are very advanced in modern water heaters) make this fairly unlikely. This is to say that gas water heaters are very efficient and effective at cooling your home. While we will explore cost in great detail, later on, it's worth pointing out in this section that natural gas tends to be much cheaper than electricity. This is another huge plus for gas water heaters. Standard electric water heaters (we will look at tankless ones in an upcoming section) operate in much the same way as gas units, save for the obvious. Instead of using a gas burner to start the convection process, electric water heaters use a heating element. Aside from that, electric and gas water heaters have the same components. Their source of power is a pretty major distinction, though, since - as mentioned earlier - electricity tends to cost much more than natural gas in the United States. Plus, when your electricity goes out, so will your hot water. This does not happen with most standard gas water heaters; even though those units may use some electricity, they can function independently. This is something to keep in mind if you are considering an electric water heater but live in an area that experiences frequent power outages. Gas water heaters tend to be just slightly more expensive than their electric counterparts. For example, we price a 40-gallon gas water heater at $999 while an electric 40-gallon comes in at $950. You only really begin to see a difference in cost when you consider energy consumption. Because gas water heaters do not use electricity, users typically more than recoup any excess amount they paid for one over an electric unit. Surely that's it, then, right? Gas hot water heaters are more energy-efficient than electric ones, costing less in the long run, so they must be the way to go! If your water heater needs to fit within a very tight space, an electric water heater would be advantageous as they tend to be much smaller. Electric water heaters also do not require venting, which makes them much cheaper and easier to install. If you are in desperate need of a new water heater but are also strapped for cash, the cost of a gas water heater vs. an electric one may prompt you to spring for the latter. Other Types Of Water Heaters to Consider While the gas hot water heater vs. electric debate reveals more similarities than differences, comparisons between other types of heaters are more drastic. When comparing a gas water heater vs. an electric tankless, you should know that the latter works based on demand. It still uses an electric heating element to warm your water but it only does so when the system determines you need hot water (i.e. when you open a tap). Because of this, electric tankless water heaters direct as much as 98% of their electrical intake towards absolutely heating your water. In other words, electric tankless heaters are extremely energy efficient. Gas tankless water heaters are very efficient too but only utilize about 85% of their electrical intake for heating water. Of course, there's a catch. A few, actually. First, electric tankless water heaters can be very expensive to buy, install, and run. They require substantial electrical work, which also makes them less intuitive for inexperienced folks to maintain. Energy Star states that tankless heaters save users an average of $1800 over the unit's lifespan. Installation and electricity costs may whittle those savings down to a negligible amount. Second, tankless heaters (both gas and electric) can run out of hot water more easily than standard systems. Heat pump water heaters are not as common as the units we've mentioned so far. Their function more closely resembles that of an air conditioner than a standard water heater. Heat pump water heaters pull heat from outside your home and, as the name would suggest, pumps it into the tank. According to the Department of Energy, most heat pumps are geothermal, meaning they pull heat from the ground. This method of heating water has its advantages. When it works, heat pump water boilers can be as much as 2.5 times more efficient than other methods. If you live in an area with wild temperature swings, though, there will be periods of the year when your heat pump does not work at all. Read more about why this happens here. To account for this, most people with heat pumps have an on-demand system (such as a tankless one) installed in conjunction. This on-demand system picks up the slack for your heat pump but is an added cost and an additional layer of complication for when it comes to both installing and maintaining your water heating apparatus. This is another somewhat popular option in places like Arizona, where the sun shines for much of the year. While these systems are energy efficient, there are some downsides worth mentioning. If you live in a place plagued by stretches of cloudy days, a solar heater obviously is not for you. You should also be aware of the added installation costs and potentially decreased serviceability. Solar water heaters are still somewhat of a specialty item; not every technician is going to be able to maintain them in an optimal fashion. There are also some valid debates about exactly how environmentally-friendly solar panels are. We wo not pass judgment but if you lean on the 'they are not' side, that conclusion defeats the purpose. For most people, the gas vs electric water heater debate boils down to cost and available space. While gas water heaters cost slightly more to install, the lower cost of natural gas easily makes up for this within the first year of use. Still, electric water heaters have their place. If you have a small area in which to place the heater, an electric unit is hard to beat. The same is true if your situation precludes you (either cost-wise or structure-wise) from installing the venting that a gas heater requires. Other types of water heaters (such as tankless and solar) have more specific use cases that exclude the vast majority of people. If you are in the Phoenix, Arizona area and unsure of what type you require, give us a call at American Home Water and Air. We've been installing HVAC and water equipment for more than 30 years and we would be happy to lend you a hand.1. Help describing a fight scene?I am not going to write it for you but I will give you some tips: 1) If you are looking to increase the tension and pace of that scene, then you need to include short sentences. Short sentences are faster to read and add a sense of immediacy to the scene. 2) Only focus on the details that Leah would notice since it's in her point of view. She would not notice the rip in James' pants if she's focusing on the punches or the blood. So only include the details that are consistent to what that pov character would notice. Also remember, she's in the basement at night, that means it's dark and she might see things incorrectly due to shadows. (You could use this to surprise the reader. If Leah thinks it was James who hit the floor because she can not see him, the reader will think so too. But when James walks out of the shadows, Leah's relief will be shared with the reader). 3) Only include details that convey the atmosphere you are aiming for in the scene. You would not talk about the nice breeze, obviously, because it distracts from the point of the scene and gives the wrong atmospheric impression. You would describe things like the sounds of grunts, the sound of shoes scuffing on the cement floor, the shadows, clothes ripping, the smell of dirt, mildew, and sweat or blood, dust clouds being kicked up, and various other things. 4) Keep it emotional. Do not just describe a blow-by-blow account of the fight. Include Leah's monologue (thoughts), to add suspense and emotion to the scene. You would want to show her distress so as to appeal to the reader's empathy. 5) Choose your verbs carefully and avoid too many adverbs/adjectives. "Pummeled" is better than "perpetually punched" and "stumbled" is better than "walked unsteadily." You want to also make sure you name things accurately. It's not just a "water heater" but an "electric, Kenmore, water heater." Or, it's not just a "light" it's a "naked light bulb hanging from an unprotected socket with a coiled snake nest of wires stapled to the ceiling above." You need to choose the details that evoke a certain mood/imagery. Good luck.2. Why Tankless water heater is not producing hot water?I believe those are switched on by a flow-sensor, so either the sensor or the heating element has failed. If you are experienced working around electrical devices, can access the connections, and can turn off the power to the device, you should be able to check both the flow sensing switch and the heating element with an ohmmeter or a continuity tester. The switch should close (show a very low resistance - close to zero ohms, or light the test light) when the water is turned on, and the heating element should show a fairly low resistance (few tens of ohms, or light the test light) at all times.3.

What Is the Difference Between a Water Heater and an Electric Kettle?
a thermostat1. Does water actually boil in an electric kettle?When it hits 212F or 100C it is boiling no matter what kettle it's in. It's a matter of time, the longer water is in a heat source the hotter it gets. Unless you are on Mount Kilamanjaro than the temperature will be less because you are so high up. In that case you need to use a pressure cooker to get to 212F or 100C2. is it possible to make your own electric kettle?"Real world" engineers always take advantage of prior art. If you can buy a kettle commercially that will do the job, buy it. Then, you can give your full attention to the unique parts of your project. It's not cheating. You should avoid "re-inventing the wheel" whenever you can. That's not what you asked. But it's the best advice I can give.3. How many watts does my 1000 watt electric kettle peak at?As you say above that you have 1000 watt electric kettle and need transformer for it . As every appliance have it's electricity consuming capacity or voltage power . You have to buy more than 1000 watt transformer or 1500 watt transformer for better result .4. Is it environmentally unfriendly to boil water in an electric kettle before adding it to a pot?You are probably wasting less energy boiling it in a kettle than boiling it in a saucepan on the stove. All the heat from the kettle element goes into the water, whereas a lot of the heat from the gas flares out around the saucepan and is wasted5. how to fix my electric kettle?Most probably needs a new heating element, so it is cheaper to buy a new one6. Can we boil cooking oil in an electric kettle?God help you, son. Turn up the brain cells for this one. Look at the label of the tea kettle. Somewhere in the Warning Section the words: "Use product as intended" probably will display prominently. Do not be silly and do it...or you will catch your house on fire.7. My plastic electric kettle has boiled dry by accident. Is it still safe to use? It smelled plastiky/metallic?no .. polyurethane is toxic, especially when burning .. (sorry if my spelling is wrong) but there is this new study too, that you might want to look up.. they are saying there is some thing like eb2.. o( i know i am wrong, but it's something like that.. ) that is supposed to be horribly wrong for all humans, and they think it's linked to some health problems now :( .. it's on the web.. goodluck.. I am sorry about your kettle, but it's best to keep you safe!8. Should I keep water in my electric kettle?i think of you have an electric undertaking including your kettle ,no longer a scent undertaking !!! Now provide up using it your gonna burn the dam residing house down !!! positioned a mug of water and tea bag in microwave like truthfully everyone else interior the international .or you may brew in simple terms water on your coffee pot while you are gonna choose extra effective than one cup so it's going to already be warm whilst yor waiting for it9. is it true it costs more (uses more electric) to boil a electric kettle than it does to run your computer?the second answerer sounded like they knew what they were talking about but i still cant see how that would work!! i boil my kettle about 10 times a day so according to them i could run my computer for 80 hours, that cant be right!!10. What is water temperature after electric kettle switches off?Basic electric tea kettles primarily work by turning off when a bimetallic switch in the handle (probably at the bottom, where it will require some steam pressure to have steam travel down to) of the kettle is sufficiently heated to deform one of the metals, turning off the kettle. This switch is heated by steam, and the element itself is typically turned off well below 100C (closer to 85, perhaps) to ensure it does not go on heating indefinitely, particularly well above sea level. This ensures it is boiling, as the steam pressure required to move the steam to heat the element does not exist until the water is at a full boil.As such, you can not assume any specific temperature from the kettle without knowing your altitude, and most accurately taking the temperature yourself. It does not heat to a specific temperature independent of altitude/pressure and stop, if you are using one of the cheaper models; if you have a model that has digital temperature control, then of course you can simply set that.Now, the temperature it stops at is quite stable, for your altitude; so if you determine that temperature (either with an accurate thermometer, or by searching the internet and/or doing the math to find out what temperature water boils at where you live) it's likely very consistent. So if you are looking for 96C, and where you live water boils at 98C, you can work out how to drop it those two degrees pretty easily.Example information: UK Museum of Science and Industry article about KettlesJohn Taylor, one of the early inventors of this kind of switchRussell Hobbs, another UK company that pioneered this process, and includes some information as to how it works on the page:(I can not source that actual statement, as does not go to a page that uses this language, but it's within reason compared to other similar pages.)
Gas Water Heater Hissing and Water Dripping From Flue?
ummmmmmm consider yourself lucky to have it last that long IT's gone GET a new one before tank burst and you have 30 gals or more of water to mop up !1. Can someone pls help me troubleshoot problems with my gas water heater?the pilot light dont come on ??2. Just installed a new gas water heater - smelled natural gas for a minute or two?If you shut off the gas, removed a line to the old heater, and smelled gas for a couple of minutes, it could just be the gas that was in the line between the shut off and the old heater. As long as you test any fittings you moved, and any other fittings in the line going back a segment or two, you are probably okay. Use soapy water on the fittings to check for bubbles.3. I am building a new home in Cleveland, OH. Should I opt for an Electric or Gas Water Heater?electric, that way you can turn it off at night to save $$$$4. Our State Select Gas Water Heater won't stay lit. Is this a thermostat issue?change the thermocouple..it is the thin line that comes of the aquastat and goes to the main burner. if it is still under warranty the parts are sent out by state w/ htrs. but the fastest way is to purchase one and install it. ...inexpensive part. ..plumber is going to charge $250. 00 ;-].5. My gas water heater thermostat is malfunctioning..?thats what pipe dope and soapy water is for.dont use pipe dope on any flared fittings, but on the thermostat itself use soft set recto seal.im not positive if you can change it out, but im guessing you can. my experience lies in lpg and electric. and lpg runs like twice the pressure, and its still not major pressure6. can you use propane on a natural gas water heater?No. On most appliances you can purchase a conversion kit to convert the appliance from one fuel to another. however water heaters are the one exception to that. Most water heaters are not convertible. Call them and ask if there is a conversion kit available. But I doubt you will get one. You will need to change the appliance if you are changing fuels. Some will say you only need to change or drill out the orifices etc. This is untrue and unwise. If you do this and the appliance is involved in a fire or anyone is injured by it the manufacturer will take no responsibility because you have "altered" the appliance and are using it "in a manner other than which it was intended". Insurance claims will be denied for the same reason. Do not do it. I know it's not the answer you were hoping for, but that's the truth!7. What energy saving methods can I use for a new gas water heater?A blanket is unnecessary and some manufacturers of tank WHs state that a blanket should not be added.The temperature set point of a tank should not be below 130 F and some say not below 140 F. This high temperature is necessary to prevent the growth of Legionella bacteria. For the same reason a timer is not recommended and I do not think a gas tank can be controlled by a timer.Research the proper temperature setting and just use the heater as it is equipped. If you have a shower with a thermostatic anti-scald valve it would be OK to use 140 F, but if you do not , then you might want to use the lowest recommended temperature setting. A lot depends on how many people in your house want to shower at the same time or in quick succession8. Very Old Gas Water Heater - Two Flames! Help!?Without actually seeing it it's hard to say. It might be a leak on the tubing or a hole in the burner. Is the flame blue or yellow? Blue flames are good, yellow not so good. Wish I could tell you more.9. Where would an on-demand tankless gas water heater be mounted?A tankless heater should be mounted as close to the point of use as feasible. Most tankless water heaters can actually be mounted under a kitchen sink.
Is It Possible for a Hot Water Heater to Leak Internally?
'Nope, as there's no place for an "internal leak" to go to. Unless the water heater itself is reheating constantly, it's not hot water leaking anyway. Dash is gettin' after it. I will go for a leaky toilet, a cracked irrigation pipe under pressure, a mechanical-timer water softener that's out of whack, a neglected furnace-mounted humidifier, etc. Turn off one thing at a time, if you will. Your water bill is insane, so just do it, and be thorough. 'Love to know how this turns out, so please update later.1. Problem with my hot water heater?Well, that's weird. What happens if you leave the door to the utility room open?2. Is a water heater neccesary for tropical water tanks?Walmart has heaters for 10 gallon fish tanks for $13.49. They temperature adjust to 78 degrees3. Are these charges too much for a hot water heater replacement?That looks right in line to me. And yes, most people are a little shocked. They did a LOT of work and it appears all was needed. The pressure regulator is needed because high pressure can damage a tank but that is an entirely separate issue not related to a normal tank installation. And that protects all the plumbing in the house. So the pressure valve is a house pressure problem and was "extra". The expansion tanks are now required as is flexible lines for the gas piping because of earthquake considerations. I do not see the price of the expansion tank listed. The old gas shutoffs can leak a little if not serviced at times by repacking and you moving them at least annually. Your old water shutoff probably would not seal or was rusted up. If you add the word "custom" I am sure the price goes up. I have no idea why they had to custom make waterlines but that is likely not their fault. Except for the expensive "dielectric unions" the rest looks not only reasonable but more than fair. Sorry.4. Our home has an oil hot water heater should we keep it or switch to an electric water heater?Whatever you do, get away from oil heat!!!5. Fizzy water from new water heater?Any time plumbing work is done to the supply water you should flush the system as much as possible before drinking. Not sure why there is still air in the cold water lines unless he really had to drain them good before replacing the heater, because filling the new heater should have resolved it. Just try running it for a while anyway. Good luck Chris6. Indirect Hot Water heater - Any recommendations?9 years is fairly soon for the indirect water heater to go bad. Those type units are usually some of the longest lived options for water heaters. Weil-McLain estimates they should have about a 30-year life span. Before you spend a lot of money to replace the current system you may want to have our water tested to determine if minerals or acidity may be corroding your plumbing, which would lead to premature failure of anything you install. You can see a life-cycle cost comparison of different water heating choices at the link provided. The indirect water heater with a high efficiency boiler can be one of the most cost effective solutions you can get. Why do not you want to stay with that and repair or replace the leaky unit? Since you have a gas boiler then the next best option with regards to life-cycle cost is a high efficiency on-demand pilotless gas unit. Gas prices are going up so it might be more cost effective to install an electric on-demand unit, but you would probably have to run a higher current circuit for it. The standard gas and electric tank water heaters are relatively inexpensive to install, but they are very inefficient and would be more costly over time.7. why is the alarm on the water heater going off?This Site Might Help You. RE: why is the alarm on the water heater going off?8. Unable to turn thermostat knob for water heater?You can still light the pilot light, it is not controlled by the thermostat. Besides , what do you want us to do?Maybe you just have to call a service company
The New Retail Landscape Part 2 - Selfgrowth.com
In my last article, I elaborated on how our new economic market will actually be a good thing for the smaller retailer and consumer of the long run. We'll see these benefits around 2010. That means that we need to take action so that we can survive through the next 16 months.In a moment, I'll give you a handful of ideas on how to cut your energy costs. I recently predicted the downturn of the U.S. dollar and explained why speculators needed to buy U.S.dollars to pay off their bad margins. The dollar is actually falling faster than even I predicted! My other prediction was that in spite of a $2.20 gallon of gas by then end of the year, energy costs will skyrocket in 2009.Oil will go way up in a recession and not as a result of supply and demand. The bankers who scooped all those buckets of money from the American Taxpayer to supposedly reinvest and stimulate the economy had done just as I had predicted. They're NOT creating jobs or lending out much money. They say credit is tight. So where is the $1.4 trillion dollars going? Foreign investments, primarily in oil, that will drive the prices up to levels that will boggle the mind in 2009. If you think it can't happen, it already has. Earlier this year, when oil hit $140 a barrel and more ( and U.S. gas was almost $4 a gallon...), it wasn't driven my supply and demand.Speculators artificially drove the price up, and they'll do it again with the money they were supposed to plow back into the U.S. economy. The government is already grumbling about how the banks have not kept their word and have not used the funds to benefit the economy, but are making investments out of the USA to their benefit and self interest. Now you know why in simple terms, how oil will go back to $140 a barrel and actually much higher in 2009.The smaller retailer needs to take steps now in order to reduce energy costs. Here are a number of things you can do, that can cut your energy costs by as much as 30 percent. The higher energy costs go, the more you can save.1) Adjust heating down to 67 or 68 degrees and air conditioning to 78 in the summer. Every degree either in heating or air condtioning can reduce your costs by as much as 5%, depending on weather conditions. Employees and customers won't even feel the difference. Overheating or overcooling costs a fortune.2) Replace lighting with Compact Fluorescent Lightbulbs (CFL's). These units are far more efficient and direct much more of the energy they consume into actual light instead of heat. In the summer, expensive air conditioning will work less. You'll save energy on lighting as well as cooling. Recently, studies have discovered that replacing incandescent bulbs in enclosed housings tends to burn out CFL's faster than their expected life term. It's best to use these in open fixtures where their small amount of heat can dissipate.3) Unplug all parastic loads in your store. Go through the premises and unplug that TV and DVD player in the staff room unless you're using it. Even though they're off, they will consumer about a hundred watts apiece day in and day out, 24 hours a day. Do you have an extra desk top computer running in the manager's office? It's drawing a minimum of 500 watts every hour, likely more with the printer plugged in and on as well. These parasitic loads can cost hundreds of dollars a year.At 16 cents a kilowatt hour (This rate will double soon), the desktop computer and its peripherals is costing you about $2 a day in hydro. That's 16 cents times (500/1000) times 24 hours in a day. Running a computer like that is about $730 a year in hydro. 4) Reduce your water heater to 120 to 130 degrees. Most stores have a water heater for a washroom for employees and customers. Most water heaters are set to 160 degrees and then forgotten. Unless you run a restaurant and need that temperature for washing dishes, 120 degrees will save you a bundle and is warm enough for washing hands and other things. While you're at it, put in a low flush toilet.You're paying a fortune for water and that will be also going up soon as well.5) Replace store lighting with energy efficient fluorescent tubes. Ask your electrician (while he's turning down your water heater) about the most efficient lighting units for your store signs. Most are illuminated with 40 watt tubes, that are largely replaced now with more energy efficient 32 watt units. That's 20% less in consumption.6) Examine your vehicular patterns. Do you have a van for stock deliveries to stores or between stores? Can you consolidate shipments and reduce the frequency of trips?As we enter these challenging times, retailers can save costs and enhance profits through more efficient and frugal use of energy without compromising the customer experience. TAKE ACTION TODAY 1) Review this list of tactics with your team and get started on reducing one of your major expenses. Every bit you reduce as energy costs go up will enhance your profits during these challenging times.2) Ask your team for ideas on how to reduce energy as well!HANG IN THERE!
If a 14 Amp Dishwasher Is on a 20 Amp 12-2 Line, Can a 6.5 Am Quick&Hot Hot Water Heater Be Put on a
1) The National Electrical Code states that you are ONLY allowed 80 % of the breaker's rated ampacity. 80% of 20 amps is 16 amps. 2) 12 gauge wire is only rated to be in use of a 20 amp circuit. This is a fire and safety hazard. Not to mention a DIRECT violation of the NEC. 3) 10 gauge wire is for 30 amps.1. can i connect a 8gauge wire to a 12 gauge wire?direct battery hook-up requires 8 gauge be safe put a fusable link in or go all 82. adding new romex that has red black and white other romex has black white and green?I do not have the foggiest what you are trying to do. i would not use 14 gauge wire for anything concerning AC current. if you insist, i suppose you could use the red as a ground, but mark it at all connections with green tape. If you are doing wiring in Europe or elsewhere where they use 220 V rather than 110 we use here in the states, you are going to have problems with it, and it will be a fire hazard. the smallest i ever use is 12 gauge wire, mostly i like ten or bigger. Stranded is better than solid, it carries more current for it's size, and stays cooler.3. Can I replace two 15 amp fuses with 10 and 20 amp fuses?Each fuse has to meet three requirements to be SAFE:Harper's answer made me think of one more thing. The "label" says Kitchen, Room Sockets. In addition to the refrigerator or other items that you know are on the circuit, there may be other receptacles and/or lights in other rooms on the same circuit. If the microwave pulls 1500 Amps and you have a few hundred watts of lighting (which is just a few incandescent bulbs if you are still using those), TV or other stuff then that could easily get you over the 15 Amp limit even if the refrigerator itself, when the compressor is not running, uses very little power. So you may want to turn off "everything you can find" - e.g., all lights, fans, TV, computer, etc. - everything except the refrigerator and the microwave. Then run the microwave for a couple of minutes and see if the breaker trips. Or alternatively, the next time it trips go around the house and see what else is not working - maybe some lights that you did not realize were connected to the same circuit. You might just find some additional load that can be turned off when you use the microwave and then have it work without tripping the breaker every time.Alternatively, unless you are lucky enough to have 12 gauge wire on the circuit, getting a lower power microwave may be the easiest solution.4. what is the max watts 12 awg wire can handle?it probably could, however i do not reccommend it at all considering that the amp wiring kit I bought a couple months ago came with 10 gauge wire and its only rated to handle about 350watts. If you have enough wire to run two 12 gauge wires on the same thing (like doubling it up) then that would work just fine. My guess of the max watts of 12 gauge wire (depending on the length of the wire) is about 200 watts, any more than this will probably work a little while but after some time your gonna be smellin that fried wire. Hope this helps5. what is the amperage limit of 12 gauge wire at 12vdc?This Site Might Help You. RE: what is the amperage limit of 12 gauge wire at 12vdc? it is stranded copperwire. the insulation jacket says that it can take 600v so I would assume that is a high quality wire. it is currently suppling power directly from my car battery to an ac-to-dc inverter. it spans about 10 feet, and it is a 350 watt inverter so it will be drawing about 30 amps...6. Building a PC - PSU information [closed]If you populate all 7 x1 slots each one has a max of 225w according to the website I found. That is 1575w just for the graphics cards.You will need at least 2, possible 3, PSU to power this rig depending on if each GPU maxes out. 1000w and above start getting into the crazy expensive price range. Probably better with 3 PSU at 600w or 700w(to be safe).In addition, you will need a dedicated outlet preferably 20 amp. Technically the 15A outlet has 1800w, but due to power supply inefficiencies it may exceed that number. So either a 20A circuit or 2 15 amp circuits otherwise you will trip the circuit breaker. You can not just change breakers, 20A need 12 gauge wire, not just 14 like 15 amps.
