So that a water heater is installed, replacing and maintenance are checked to determine this. The water pressure and expansion tank are also checked. Reducing of stress to plumbing lines and extension of life of appliances and fixtures is achieved by reducing pressure in which water pressure is checked using pressure gauges. In addition to checking of pressure, consideration of inline pressure gauges to monitor pressure should be done. The expansion tank to be used is the first consideration. A thermal expansion tank is the best solution as it removes excess pressure in the lines of a closed system. Installation of the expansion tank is done to the cold water supply line near or above the water heater.
Temperature maintenance at acceptable levels is done by a mechanism known as heating system. Heating is the conversion of energy to heat through the process of raising temperature of an enclosed space. Systems in heating allow for temperature maintenance at certain levels. Systems in heating constitute to different types and they are heat pumps, boilers and furnaces. Two way conditioners that works by moving heat from the fairly cool indoors to the outside world which is warm are heat pumps.
A counter current flow is used by heat pumps as they contain two air conditioners. The warming of the outside while cooling the inside is the counter current flow used by heat pumps. Despite using counter current flow their main system is forced warm air delivery. Most households have forced warm air systems that are of two types. Air and ground source pumps are the types of heat pumps common in most households.
Heat pumps that use air sources use the heat during winter while during summer they let the heat sink in. The air sources are regarded as cheap in that is their installation costs is very affordable and in addition is an easy- do process. Aside from being inexpensive they are also more common than ground source heat pumps. Ground source heat pumps acquire heat from the under-surface just as the name suggest. Ground sources are considered to be efficient and the there is no temperature fluctuation year in and year out.
Installation of the water heater is divided into two parts which is removal of the old water heater and installation of the new water heater. So that the old water heater is removed there are some steps that are followed through which include; turning off the electricity at the circuit breaker, turning on the faucet on hot and let it run till the water is cool, opening of the drain valve and emptying the water heater into buckets or down the drain and finally removing the discharge pipe from temperature and pressure relief valve with disconnection of water supply lines. Installation of the new water heater is followed through with some steps.
