Domestic Hot Water

In this house, the hot water system uses a tank. Natural gas is burned to heat water, which sits in a tank until somebody turns on a faucet or appliance that demands hot water. The hot water then flows through the house’s pipes to the faucet, where it is used and then drained to the sewer system.
