The Anatomy of a Gas Water Heater

Last updated 5 years ago

For thousands of years, individuals who wanted to bathe in warm water had to heat water over a flame and then pour it into a tub. Today, hot water heaters are so common in our part of the world that they are not even considered a luxury. If you are looking to better appreciate or understand the gas water heater in your home, check out this brief video clip.

This video serves as a great primer to the gas-powered water heater, introducing each part and describing how they all work together to heat water in the home. By the time the video is over, you will be familiar with the cold water inlet, hot water outlet, burners, thermostat, drain valve, and temporary relief valve.

The narrator’s emphasis on following safety precautions and contacting a professional whenever uncertainties arise is an important reminder to us all.
