When you’re replacing a gas hot water, it’s now not possible to do so with a model that has an energy star rating of 4 or below. This is because these gas hot water heaters are considered to be too inefficient, and are slowly being phased out. In order to comply with these regulations, you will need to choose a gas water heater that has an energy star rating of 5 or higher. Your attending Metropolitan plumber will, of course, be able to guide you through this process when you’re deciding on your replacement gas hot water heater. And he’ll make sure you not only comply with all laws but also that you get the very best appliance for your hot water heating requirements.
Gas hot water heaters are available in two types of systems – storage and continuous flow (also known as instantaneous systems).
A storage heater can be powered by either natural gas or LPG, which supplies power to a continually burning pilot flame. The pilot flame ignites a gas burner submerged inside the heaters storage cylinder, which heats the water stored inside the cylinder ready for when you require it. The temperature of this water is monitored by a thermostat, and the burner automatically turns off once optimum water temperature is reached.
When you use hot water, the storage cylinder automatically refills with water to its capacity, and heats the new water. Gas storage heaters are commonly made with a steel storage cylinder that is coated with vitreous enamel which helps the cylinder to resist corrosion. More expensive models feature stainless steel storage cylinders, which can prove to be more durable than the regular steel units.
Most gas storage heaters also feature an added sacrificial anode inside their storage cylinders. Which is a chemical that is designed to break down over the life of the unit and be released into the system, this helps lengthen the life of the unit itself.
