For Water Heater Installation tips call on the pros at Black Mountain Plumbing Inc.  Water heaters are a familiar appliance in most everyone’s home but few people really understand how they work.  Here is a great series of articles from HowStuffWorks.com that really do a great job of explain what you need to know about water heaters.

The water coming into your home makes a journey through a system of pipes, and it’s usually cold or cool, depending on the time of year. To have water warm enough to take a hot shower or bath, or use your dishwasher or washing machine, you need a water heater.

Water heaters are familiar fixtures in most homes. They typically look like big metal cylinders, tall drums that are often consigned to a laundry room or basement. Newer styles have some interesting features, like losing the tank completely in favor of water-on-demand, but the old, reliable water heater design that’s most widely used in the U.S. today is really a pretty simple appliance; it’s basically a drum filled with water and equipped with a heating mechanism on the bottom or inside. Even though they lack drama and complexity, water heaters are still pretty amazing. What makes them interesting is that they exploit the heat rising principle to deliver hot water right to your faucet with a minimum of fuss. Don’t let the simple shape shrouded in its woolly insulating blanket fool you. Water heaters have an ingenious design on the inside for something that looks so ordinary on the outside.
