The first step to hot-water heating is installing a hot water heater to your home. However, not all types of gas or propane systems require this type of installation. You will need to carefully measure the area of your home to order to ensure that it is well ventilated. This information can be found on the building code for your area.
First, cut the pipe around the blue line and remove the old pipe from the hot water tank. Then remove the old box from the hot water tank and carefully slide it away from the bottom of your hot water tank. Then, simply remove the old hot water tank from the bottom of your hot water tank. Once your old water tank is free, remove the top part of your hot water tank cover and put the new cover over the top.
Now, remove the old box that came with the hot water tank and carefully slide the new hot water tank into place. It is important that you place the tank in the exact location of your hot water supply valve. Then, take the old cover off the valve of your hot water tank and place the new cover over the valve.
The next step to hot-water heating is attaching the new hot water tank to the existing hot water pipes. Most homes have three main types of hot water supply: Forced, Compressed Air and Electric. You should know which type your hot water tank is for before you install it.
Take the old hot water supply valves and gently slide them out of their respective locations. Then, insert one of your new hot water valves and gently push the handle up to tighten it. Do not force it, but be sure that it is tight enough so that it does not move around when the valve is shut off.
Once your cold water tank has been installed, you can now attach the new hot water tank to your cold water supply valve. This part is very easy to do. Just slide the new valve over to one side of your cold water supply valve and make sure that it is positioned in the right direction. Also, turn the thermostat valve clockwise to get the heat flow started.
If you need to install a second tank, you can do that as well. If you do not need to, you can simply take the old cold water tank and just replace the cover of your hot water tank with a new one.
There are a number of other things you can do to hot water heating, but we will not cover them all here. There is a great book available that covers all of those details. For example, how to repair your hot water heater and how to replace any parts of your gas or propane system if yours breaks.
There are also videos available that give you the information that you need on how to get your hot water heater installed properly. There are other options too. If you cannot find what you need in this book or the video, you can try the Internet and many of the other hot water heater installation sites.
When you are done with your hot water heater installation, you need to test out the system for leaks and other issues. Make sure that the pipes have been properly insulated and that they are clean.
If you have any questions about your new hot water heater, you should call a professional who is experienced in hot water heater installation. Before you start any hot water heating tasks, always check to make sure that your existing tanks are not clogged and that there is no damage to your piping.
In conclusion, make sure that your new hot water heater is installed correctly and completely. If you follow these steps you can easily install your hot water heater in no time at all.
