Par Plumbing, a division of The Par Group, provided labor, material and equipment to isolate, drain, disconnect and remove one 30 gallon electric water heater located above a hung ceiling in the intern office area. The Plumbing division also, furnished and installed a new heater of equal capacity, output and electrical requirements. All work done on time and on schedule.
Electric hot water heaters produce heat by passing a current through electrical resistance heating elements. Power is delivered to each element through a thermostat, which senses the water temperature. When the temperature decreases, the switch closes to allow current flow and opens when the temperature reaches its fixed limit.
When a hot-water tap is opened, cold water enters the tank through the dip tube and the drop in temperature triggers the thermostat and element at the bottom. The replacement of hot to cool water drops the thermostat temperature causing the element to activate. When the tap is shut off, the heating elements continue to transmit a current until the thermostats are contented.
