Range of High Efficiency Storage Water Heater

Our range of high efficiency commercial condensing water heaters can provide continuous production and supply of hot water for large domestic, commercial and industrial properties. Fundamentally, a water heater is an appliance that converts energy to heat and transfers that heat to standard water. It’s connected to a cold drinking standard water pipe and has an outgoing hot tub or system of pipes that supplies heated standard water to faucets and appliances. The majority of water heaters are fueled by natural gas, though propane-fueled and electric water heaters are not unusual. Where natural gas is available, it is a much less expensive energy source than electricity.

A gas-fueled storage water heater heats water by means of a burner beneath the tank. Natural gas is piped to a gas valve. A thermostat that detects the temperature of water in the tank regulates fuel delivery to the burner, which is ignited by a pilot light or spark ignition. A vent collects toxic emissions from the burner and pipes them up through the tank, out the top, and normally up through the roof. Some newer, high-efficiency hot standard water heaters have fan-assisted vents that can be piped out through a wall. Because the tank is under pressure, hot standard water exits through the hot standard water outlet at the top. When the hot standard water leaves, cold standard water enters through a diffuser dip tube that extends down inside the tank. The cold tube normally has a shutoff valve.

A magnesium or aluminum anode rod utilizes the principle of ionization to minimize the water’s corrosive elements, which can significantly shorten tank life. The larger the anode, the longer a tank is likely to last. The drain valve at the water heater’s base is used for draining the tank or flushing sediment out of it. This important maintenance step should be done once or twice a year, according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. Most storage-tank water heaters look alike on the outside. But sawing open a cross-section of gas and electric storage-tank models in our lab confirmed that paying a little more typically buys a better water heater.

Those with longer warranties tended to have larger heating elements, thicker insulation, and thicker or longer corrosion-fighting metal anodes. A storage heater is a specialized electric heater that stores heat during the time period when electricity costs are low and releases the stored heat to the room as needed. Many electrical utilities offer rates that vary by time period, enabling users of storage heaters to take advantage of the lower electricity prices. Storage heaters historically were installed to ‘charge’ during the night, utilizing cheaper electricity from the grid and then heat ceramic or concrete blocks within the heater. When it is daytime they will stop charging and then release the stored heat throughout the day. Some storage heaters are equipped with a fan assisting dissipater, which then also helps regulate the temperature of the room.

Some heaters have a fan to assist in distributing the heat. These types of heater are usually more efficient as they are almost always better insulated and therefore have more control over the release of heat; however this can be an issue for allergy sufferers, as dust is blown around the room.
