WATER HEATERS DENVER
Water heaters heat and retain a quantity of water in an insulated cylinder, ready for use. They provide hot water at the water main-level pressure, and service many outlets at the one time. Once empty, the water heaters Denver takes time to reheat its contents. With brands like Rheem, using twin elements, the water can be heated at off-peak electrical rates saving you money. Rheem also features adjustable temperature thermostats and 7 year and 10 year cylinder warranty options. They can be installed indoors or outdoors, and are available in small through to large capacities including small units that fit under a kitchen bench and heat a lot of hot water in a short time – ideal for apartments.

GUIDELINES FOR DENVER WATER HEATER REPAIR
Enter the water heater. This is a traditional storage tank water heater with a twist: it uses a heat pump to heat up the water. A heat pump is a device that moves heat from one area from another, a far more energy efficient way to produce heat and keep hot water available at all times. In this case, the water heater uses a fan to draw in air from the surrounding area. An evaporator coil contains refrigerant which absorbs heat from the air. As refrigerant moves through the compressor, it’s heated up even more. It then flows through a heat exchanger so it can heat up the water in the tank.
Heat pump water heaters use electricity to move heat from one place to another instead of generating heat directly. Therefore, they can be two to three times more energy efficient than conventional electric resistance water heaters. Some brands are available in both liquid propane and natural gas applications.
Denver water heater repair experts will demonstrate the advantages of units over others if they are suitable for your use.
Water heaters account for approximately 15 percent of a home’s energy use. High efficiency water heaters use 10 to 50 percent less energy than standard models, saving homeowners money on their utility bills.
Just like standard water heaters, high-efficiency water heaters extract heat energy out of the exhaust gases to heat the water, but they include a secondary heat exchanger that maximizes the heat transfer process to extract as much heat energy as possible out of the whole combustion process.
Sealed combustion is the first key to higher efficiency. That means the combustion process takes place in a sealed compartment (no open flame, no heat lost) inside the tank itself, surrounded by the water it is heating. The water is then able to heat faster from the center out, rather than from the bottom up. Sealed combustion water heaters maintain the seal by using designated intake and exhaust pipes to connect them directly to the outside. They are controlled so when hot water is needed the blower kicks in and draws air directly from outside into the combustion chamber with the fuel, and the exhaust gets power-vented directly out the building (via same blower) through another designated pipe, rather than through a chimney.
Condensing is the next key process to higher efficiency. A second heat transfer process is achieved by lengthening the exit path the exhaust travels using a secondary heat exchanger, frequently featuring a coiled design for maximum surface area, though some models use a reversed travel path (down, up, down again). And as this heat transfer occurs, the exhaust gases cool to the temperature where water vapor condenses out of the exhaust’s air stream back into liquid water (just like water from the air condenses on the outside of a cold drink), releasing the latent heat of vaporization which is used to further heat the water in the system. (The resulting liquid condensate leaves the system via a designated condensate drain.) The exhaust gases end up cool enough that PVC pipe can be used for the venting, but those gases also lose stamina as they travel, which is why all HE units are power-vented, e. fan assisted.
Sealed combustion water heaters come in both condensing and non-condensing models (usually just referred to as direct vent), but the condensing models have closer to 95-98% thermal efficiency and are the more commonly known as HE units on the market.
Standard gas water heaters are called atmospheric units because they require oxygen from the immediate atmosphere for the combustion process to heat the water. A thermostat regulates the water temperature and controls when the gas burner needs to be actively working. The ignitor (electric or hot surface) sparks the fuel, initiating the combustion process. The burner assembly burns natural gas (or sometimes propane) to heat the water inside of the tank in two ways:
A standard water heater extracts at least 80% of the heat generated by the gas to heat the water. Yet15-20% of the heat still escapes out the chimney unused.
As of April 2015, higher energy efficiency standards became the law. These standards, established by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), were approved based on the goal of saving consumers up to $10 billion and prevent the release of up to 164 million metric tons of carbon dioxide over the next 30 years. Residential water heating products affected by the new 2015 Energy Conservation Standards include gas-fired, oil-fired, electric, tabletop, instantaneous gas-fired and instantaneous electric. See the chart below for new energy factor requirements for all these products.
