Questions & Answers

if the power goes out, will the tank still produce hot water

if the power goes out, will the tank still produce hot water
Asked by: Pez
Do not know. The water heater uses natural gas with a pilot light. With the exception of an occasional power surge, we have had no interruptions in power. Our water heaters are performing well.

Performance Platinum 40 Gal. Short 12 Year 38,000 BTU Natural Gas Tank Water Heater is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 617.

I've had it running for a month now and not a single problem. The install was simple. You can either follow the manual for step by step instructions or they even have the install instructions right on the side of the box. The only thing is you have to be patient when you prime and ignite the unit for the first time. It takes up to about 45 seconds for the gas to push all the air that is in the system out and ignite the pilot light. It seems like a long time but when you think about it, it is only feeding enough gas to run the pilot light. Which is a very small amount. So yeah, very satisfied.
