Gas water heaters work by heating water to the desired temperature. This is done by burning natural gas or propane in an enclosed burner compartment of the tank. When you turn on your hot water tap, cold water enters the bottom of the tank and mixes with warm water at its top. As it falls toward the bottom of the tank, it picks up heat from hot gases rising within tank walls until it becomes hot enough for use (in some cases, this may take only seconds).

How Does a Gas Water Heater Work?
Hot water is distributed throughout your home via pipes connected to baseboard heating systems or radiators that warm rooms as needed via thermostats controlled by room temperature sensors. Cold water returns to the top of the tank, where warm gases rise through pipes connecting tanks and air vents in upper areas where they are released out into the atmosphere outside the house (where they vent out).
For residential water heaters, the main difference between the different types of water heaters is the fuel sources, and Westerville’s Plumbing & Drain’s gas water heater installation experts will help you determine which type of heater is best to use with your home. Though they all have different fuel sources, they all work in relatively the same way. For example, when a faucet is turned on, hot water flows into the top of the tank and then out through a pipe at the bottom. In order to keep up with demand, a thermostat will turn on when there is a fall in temperature and turns off once it has reached the desired set temperature.
Types of Gas Water Heaters
Tankless models require less energy to operate than their traditional counterparts because they don’t have to keep a large quantity of hot water at the ready for use. Tankless models also tend to be smaller in capacity and have shorter lifespans than storage tank models, but these factors aren’t necessarily deal-breakers if you’re aware of them before making your purchase decision. If you’re looking for an energy-efficient option that can be installed in tight spaces (like under kitchen counters), then it may make more sense for you to go with a tankless model rather than one that requires consistent access to an electrical outlet or plumbing hookup (e.g., traditional electric water heaters). However, if you have plenty of space available where you want to install your heater, then going with something like a standard electric storage tank will give you more bang for your buck.
What should I look for when buying a new gas water heater?
Cost is one of the main factors when choosing a water heater. Gas water heaters tend to be cheaper than electric ones. Gas water heaters are more efficient, reliable, and convenient than electric ones.

Why don't I have hot water?
Why is my water heater leaking?
If you see water accumulating around your water heater or leaking from the water heater, it may be time to replace it. If you notice water dripping from the base of your water heater, there is likely a break in the interior tank, and you will need to replace your water heater as soon as possible.
What size water heater do I need?
Traditional heating systems have been more efficient for large households, but tankless heaters are a viable option for small households, too. A tank that can contain from 50 to 80 tons of water at one time is ideal for big families of four or more children. If you live in a tiny home with just one other individual, a unit that contains 23-36 gallons would likely be more appropriate for your needs. For those considering installing a tankless water heater, the capacity of the tank isn’t as important as how quickly it can deliver hot water. Flow rate is calculated in gallons per minute (GPM) and is higher if you have a larger household.
