Question about Rheem 80 GAL ELEC TALL Water Heater 6YR SC 82V802
Every time we run hot water anywhere in the house the hot water tank will cycle on. even if the water is run for only a few seconds. would like to know if this is normal or adding to the high cost of our electric bill. the tank was just installed in november of 2008 in a newly constructed house.
Yes, unfortunelty elextric water heaters do cycle a lot. They are a little bit different from gas water heaters, in the fact that they run differently and seem to run out of hot water faster, then gas water heaters. Just make sure, that the thermostat is set at 120 F. The thermostat will be behind a panel, and under the electrical wire connections. You will have to use a flathead screw driver, to change the temp. settings, if they need changing. Also, make sure that once a year, that you flip the Pressure relief valve to equalize the pressure and to drain at least 2 gallons of water out of the tank.
