Gas Water Heaters 101

Gas water heaters help make hot water for showers, doing dishes, and washing clothes. Every homeowner should know several essential parts of a gas water heater to understand what they do. It is equally important to understand the basics of how a gas water heater makes hot water for your home.

The most common parts of a gas water heater are on the outside and include:

  • Flue
  • Draft Diverter
  • Temperature and Pressure Relief Valve
  • Overflow Pipe
  • Gas Supply Shut Off
  • Thermostat Control Valve
  • Pilot Light Control Valve
  • Cold Water Supply Line
  • Hot Water Supply Line
  • Gas Burner

Whether you have a tank-type gas water heater or a tankless gas water heater, you will find these common parts. There are parts inside, too, but they are ones your plumber needs to know about when performing water heater repair service.

To learn more about what each of the common parts of a gas water heater does, we invite you to continue reviewing the following infographic.
