Water heater


Most instant-on tankless water heaters require at least 10 psi of water pressure to start the heating process. The flow of water determines how hot the water will be, within the heating range. An electric 110 volts heater will increase the water temperature about 25 degrees F. A gas water heater will increase the water temperature about 45 degrees F.
Too much flow will not allow the water time to heat. Too little flow will not allow the heating system to work. Each heater must have the outflow water flow adjusted for the best heating outcomes. The best way to find the ideal flow is to turn the hot water facet on and adjust it (open or close) until the water reaches the balance of producing hot water.

Will well water cause a problem on the heat pump water heater


I would say yes.
Because element may not be easy to replace, or easy to reset unit after replacement
I would also suggest not buying heat pump... must be in at least 10'x10' room with 7" space around entire heater

Every time we put on the central heating our water runs cold


What kind of water heater do you have?
In any case, it sound like a plumber should check out system.

Do you have indirect heater that gets heat from central heating boiler?
Most indirect/boiler combo heaters have control that is set to heat the water first.
If water is not getting heated, then the control needs repair.

Do you have gas water heater with gas central heating?
The central heater may be drawing so much gas from meter, that other gas appliances are unable to function. larger gas meter or gas line may be needed.
Or if furnace and water heater vent on same chimney, the backflow from central heat could be affecting burner on water heater especially if water heater has electronic sensor that stop combustion if air quality is bad. Venting problems can lead to CO poisoning, and are a serious matter.

We just bought a new water heater and it's not heating up water.


The heating element was bad. It's hard to believe that a brand new water heater would have a burn element, but that's the problem. I replace the heating element and its started working properly.

How does an electrial water heater work


it uses resistive heating elements that are encased in an electrical insulation and then covered with metal, like the cooking elements in a stove, or on a cooktop range. when electricity flows through them they heat up and get hot (like a light bulb filament wire glows) When the water reaches a certain temperature set on the thermostat, it opens the electricity,turns it off to the element until the water cools down past whatever temperature it is set at, and then it turns back on. That is why if too many people take a shower you will run out of hot water because cold water is always flowing through the water heater and when all the hot water is used, you have to wait for the heating elements to heat the water back up. To make sure it heats up quickly make sure all the HOT water faucets are off so that water isn't flowing through it and is just sitting there heating up. All work on the same principle.

Central heating and hot water have suddenly stopped working


not an engineer but maybe a heating compant,, it sounds like you have a relay that has gone bad, you have what we call a winter summer system your domestic water comes from a tank inside the boiler, you might want to think about splitting the system to save you some money in the long run, seperate the water heater from the boiler so you only heat up in the winter, right now you are heating the system that heats your house to get 30 or 40 gals of domestic hot water, it would cost you less by seperating them
