Is there a connection between a warm floor and a water heater?

Our water heater is raised in the corner of our garage. The room on the other side of the wall with the water heater has a warm floor. Is this normal?

Is the floor warm just in certain spots or all over. If just in a certain spot you may have a hot water line leaking in floor.

What size fresh air vent do I need in a boiler room with a gas boiler and gas hot water heater with about 220,000 btu combined

I suggest that you run a duct that is 3 inches larger than the furnace duct . and you should run it down close to the floor and aim it in the direction of the furnace. this will trap warm air above the vent and supply an adequate supply of air for combustion. also make sure you have insulated any pipes in the furnace room that carry water or steam you want heat where you live, not going up the chimney.

Where is the defroster

Defrost on most units works like this. An electric wire heater is embedded in the cooling coil where the air is cooled. A timer periodically shuts off the refrigerator and turns on this electric heater coil which melts the frost off the coil. The water from this defrost collect s in a trough below the coil and drains down thru tubes into a shallow plastic tray under the unit. The water does not collect there but is evaporated over time by the hot air that blows over top of the water by the fan that comes back on when the refrigerator returns to cooling cycle. This is the fan that sucks air from the room over the condenser coil under the fridge to make the refrigeration work. The air is warm after passing over the condenser coil and then the air passes over the water tray. You can feel the warm air returning back into the room if you out your hand down near the floor.

Fluval m200 heater is lit and warm but still hasnt heated tank after 36 hrs..200 ltr tank is this normal

Hello. You haven't stated the room temperature and what temp you are trying to raise your tank to, but it sure sounds like the tank is too large for the heater wattage you chose for the tank. The basic rule of thumb is 3-5 watts per gal (about .75 to 1.5 W per ltr) to raise the tank 5 deg-F (approx 2.5 deg-C) above room temp. If you need to raise the tank temp even more, then you will have to choose a larger heater. Using the rule of thumb I would choose at least a 300W heater for a 200ltr tank. Also, do not forget to include the capacity of your refugium/sump, if you use one, in the calculation of your water quantity because you are heating that mass of water as well as your tank.

Water on Drivers side Saturn SC2

Is it antifreeeze from heater core or heater core hose leak?  Is the leak pure water, or maybe something else?
Put it in the garage again overnight with an old white towel in the drivers foot well, best if you can find a way to stretch it from drivers seat forwar to firewall and keep it off of floor mat.  Check it before you go to bed,  then in the morning if no leak found yet.  see if the color/location of the spot helps you identify the source.  I think the heater core is under the dash center.  Anti freeze is green/yellow or orange.
good luck
