By checking on whether one needs to replace the water heater or just maintain are some of the reasons before installing it. When wanting to install a water heater the expansion tank and water pressure are 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. Monitoring of pressure gauges should be done using inline pressure gauges which should be a consideration. As for the expansion tank, determination of the type of tank needed is done. Removal of excess pressure in the lines of a closed system is done by a thermal expansion tank. 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. Various levels of temperature maintenance is done by a mechanism known as heating system. There are various types of heating systems which include furnaces, heat pumps and boilers. 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. They cool the inside while warming the outside. Most heat pumps use forced warm air delivery system to generate hot air in the house while expelling cold air outside. There are two types of forced warm air systems that are commonly found in many households. The types of source heat pumps are air and ground source.
During winter they use the heat source while during summer they let the heat sink that is the air source. The Installation cost of air sources is quite affordable and the process quite easy. Not only are air source pumps cheap but also they are more available than ground source. Ground source heat pumps acquire heat from the under-surface just as the name suggest. Year in year out there is no temperature fluctuation of ground sources making them advantageous.
Removal of the old water heater and installation of the new water heater are the main sections during installation of a water heater. In removing the old water heater the following process are done; 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. To install a new water heater there are some steps that are followed through.
