Tank Water Heater Services by Basnett Plumbing, Heating & AC

For the majority of homeowners, a storage tank water heater is synonymous with “water heater.” This type of system uses a large tank to keep a reservoir of hot water at the ready. It’s by far the most popular type of hot water appliance, and not without good reason. Tank water heaters are relatively inexpensive to purchase and maintain.

We can make sure that your entire system—from the anode rod and dip tube to the heating element and drain valve—works just as it should.

What is a Tank Water Heater?

As its name suggests, a tank water heater uses a large storage tank that holds anywhere from 30 to 80 gallons of heated water. It is typically installed in the basement, although sometimes in a utility closet. The basic design is quite simple: a dip tube sends cold water to the bottom of the tank, where it is heated by an electric element or gas burner. The tank is insulated to retain as much thermal energy as possible, although your water heater will have to turn on occasionally to reheat your water supply.
