How do Water Heaters Work?

How do Water Heaters Work?

Have you ever wondered how a water heater works? How does it heat the water in your home and make your showers warm? At Twintech Heating & Cooling, we carry two types of water heaters: tank and tankless heaters.

A tank water heater works by collecting cold water from the bottom of the unit. The collected water is heated either by a gas flame or an electricity source. Then, the water is stored as needed. When hot water is needed, the heater sends water through your home’s hot water supply pipes and to the faucet or appliance. When the levels in the water tank drop, it will automatically start to refill and heat again.

Tankless water heaters work slightly differently than tank heaters. The cold water is not stored but drawn directly into the unit where a sensor is activated. The sensor activates a gas-fired burner or electricity source, which is then used to heat the water. After the water is heated, it travels directly towards the faucet or appliance.

Tankless water heaters are beneficial for homeowners who want compact and energy-efficient devices, that can supply an unlimited amount of hot water, heated on demand. These types of water heaters are perfect for large families and can last longer than tank heaters.

If you are looking to install or repair a water heater, contact the experts at Twintech Heating & Cooling. Our technicians have experience with both tank and tankless water heaters. Additionally, if you are looking to make the switch from an electric water heater to a gas one, not only will we install the heater, but we will also install any gas lines needed.

Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors

Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors to the house for the installers to remove the old furnace and install a new furnace.
I also made recommendations of the tankless water heater that we had installed and items to address. We did not know they also installed tankless water heaters.

Proud to support this local company

Price was not the cheapest nor the most expensive of my quotes. It's the quality of the installation that makes for a good AC system. The twins' knowledge & professionalism was evident in the small details:
Very clean work. Greg made sure that the refrigerant level & temperature were correct. They reinstall the insulation & vapor barrier around the wall. The outside electrical cords were secured to the wall. Proud to support this local company. Thank you.

Arrived on time worked very efficiently and were very clean

Great team of guys came to do the work. Very professional. Arrived on time worked very efficiently and were very clean. They answered any questions we had without hesitation. The air conditioner works great and is so quiet. I highly recommend them and they don't try to up-sell anything right from the start.

I’ll Always Be Contacting Twintech First!

My existing 15-yr old A/C went down on me during the first major heatwave of the season. Researched my options, as well as a few different installers, and decided on Twintech.

They gave me confidence right from the beginning. Extremely knowledgeable. Their communication was excellent - always responded to questions quickly. Given we were in a heatwave, they were fully booked. However, within days they were able to fit me in due to a cancellation. Upon learning that the Amana unit I was getting installed was on backorder, TwinTech went to bat for me with the manufacturer and was able to get me the next model up within a day, for the same price - Amazing!

As far as the installation was concerned, I couldn’t be more impressed. These guys were clearly very experienced and did a fantastic job. Very clean, polite, timely & informative. They even thoroughly sealed all the exposed gaps in my ductwork. I’ve had plenty of heating and cooling work done in the past and have never used the same contractor twice because I’ve never been very impressed. However, from now on, I’ll always be contacting Twintech first!

They were very friendly and took care of everything.

They were very friendly and took care of everything. The install looks great (and works great), they were very knowledgeable. Installed our a/c efficiently despite the difficult install location both inside and outside and they made it work.

Phenomenal service, so glad I found these guys

Phenomenal service, so glad I found these guys a few years back after being "hosed" badly by 3 other companies. I've recommended them to so many, and they all are so thankful.

by Jonathan Rogoza on Twintech Heating and Cooling
This company is fantastic

This company is fantastic. Dave came out and gave me a very honest and reasonable quote, unlike a quote received from another company. I had a bunch of questions that were easily answered and when I had questions regarding heating/cooling a previously unheated room above the Garage, Dave arranged for Greg to come out for an assessment of this new space and gave me his recommendation along with his professional thoughts on all of my options.

These guys have been nothing but Professional, honest and helpful along the way. I can't recall the two other guys doing the install, but they were great as well. Good workmanship, everything was cleaned up and everything functions as promised. I could go on and on about my experience, but it's all positive so what more could you want?

Give them a call, see for yourself. If I had to buy another furnace/AC or heat pump, they'd be my first call.
