By checking on whether one needs to replace the water heater or just maintain are some of the reasons before installing it. The water pressure and expansion tank are also checked. A pressure gauge is used in order to check the pressure as it is very important. Aside from pressure checking monitoring of pressure should be done by inline pressure gauge. The expansion tank to be used is the first consideration. The probable best is thermal expansion tank which alleviates 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. The process of raising temperature through conversion of energy to heat is heating. Systems in heating allow for temperature maintenance at certain levels. There are various types of heating systems which include furnaces, heat pumps and boilers. Pumps that are used for heat are basically two way conditioners that work by moving heat from the indoors to the outdoors.
Two air conditioners are contained in a heat pump in which they work through a counter current flow. They cool the inside while warming the outside. A forced warm air delivery system is used by heat pumps while at the same time using a counter current flow. 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.
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. The availability of ground sources is rare as compared to air source which are also affordable. Heat from underground is the source of heat of ground source heat pumps. 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. 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 is the process of removing old water heater. Installation of the new water heater is followed through with some steps.
