So, how does a water heater work?


While there are many different types of water heaters like immersion rods, storage geysers and instant water heaters, they all work on the principle of converting electrical energy into heat energy. Let’s break the heating process down step by step, shall we?

Step 1: Cold water gushes into the tank with the help of an inlet pipe. 

Step 2: As soon as it is switched on, the heating element present in the centre heats up to reach the desired temperature set by the thermostat. 

Step 3: As the temperature of the water increases, the hot water moves to the top while the cold water settles at the bottom due to its heavier density. 

Step 4: Voila, the hot water now has access to the outlet pipe which enables it to move out of the heater and into your taps.
