How do you get hot water to your appliances?
Hot water gets to any appliance through the pipes in the home. As soon as framing is completed in any home, pipes are laid from the incoming main supply to the faucets, the H/W tank, and the toilet. another set of pipes leads from the H/W tank to each hot faucet, including the ones where washing machine and dishwasher will be. These two will end in a shut off valve where these 2 appliances can be connected easily.
Answer . I can see the need for this question. The power goes out frequently around my house. I have a generator that only puts out 110VAC. I made a special adapter to plug it into the breaker box. I made it so both legs in the box are live. This way, I have power anywere in the house. Of course …I turn off the main breaker, but I also keep the 220VAC breakers off.. Answer . The appliance will function but it will be taking twice as much current from one leg of the mains instead of equal amounts from both legs.. If the total power required by the appliance is too high - and other appliances, lamps, or whatever plugged into that same leg are taking their normal loads - this way of supplying the 240V appliance may cause the main breaker for that single leg to trip. If that happens you must stop supplying the 240V appliance in this way or at least turn off all the other appliances running from that leg until the breaker stays "on" quietly and safely.. Remember that such 240V appliances, as supplied for 60Hz systems as in US or Canada, are designed to run on two "hot" legs (Black and Red), not just one leg. So this kind of "double hooking-up" should really only be tried in emergencies, as the Answer above describes.. Answer . why would you even ask such a question? The appliance will not function.

When you turn on the hot water in an appliance such as the washer what could cause a clicking sound upstairs in the wall?
Answer . two possible reasons that i can think of, 1, pipes are heating up ( expanding slightly and making noise) or 2,it is a newer home and is equipped with a hot water circulation system which keeps hot water circulating throughout your home so you use less power heating it,and it is hot on d…emand not 5 minutes after you turn it on.

Under normal circumstances this will burn and damage the root system of the plant, possibly severely enough to kill it. Some plants are more tolerant though to hot water and can survive fairly high water temperatures
For bldgs with long runs between the source and the use point, a HW recirculating system could be installed. This can be a full loop with a circulator and aquastat, or a check valve between the hot and cold water lines at the farthest fixture with the circulator controlled by an aquastat sensing the… return water temp (by Taco Hydronics). Another possibility is an Instantaneous heater close to the point of use; either gas or electric. (MORE)
They are blenders and microwaves, washer drier dishwasher and coffie makers! Anythign you have to buy and plug in mostly for the kitichen! Hope I helped!
No you can't!!! The grass will die because they don't have the cold water they need. Hot water will make them die because it steams them. So water them with COLD water!!
There are a few possibilities. One is that the water heater is not large enough for the demand put on it. Another is that it is not turned up high enough. Another is that your shower and bath valves are preset so as limit that maximum temperature. These can be adjusted and how to do it is dependent …on the type of valve. Typically you have to remove the shower valve trim to get to the adjustment screws. Some Delta brand single-control pressure-balancing valves have a stop disc hidden under the control handle that can be rotated left or right in fixed increments to set the maximum temperature. Another reason is calcium buildup at the bottom of the water heater which impedes its ability to heat water efficiently. This can be mitigated by opening the valve at the bottom of the heater and shutting off the hot water outlet valve on the top. I like to drain it a bit and then turn on and off the cold water supply to surge and lift the sediments off the bottom so they will make their way out the hose bib at the bottom of the heater. If you have very hard water in your area, the tank may require deliming after a few years of use. Remove the hot water fitting at the top and drain out half the water. Pour de-liming granules (a weak acid) into the hot water outlet with the aid of a funnel and turn the temperature of the heater up to its highest setting for an hour, or so. Turn the heat off and let the hot acid solution work for a while, then drain the tank, reconnect the hot water fitting and flush it out thoroughly via the drain valve before setting the thermostat to the normal temperature and returning the tank to service. Deliming granules are available from many hardware stores. You might consider replacing hot water tank with a tankless water heater. It pays for itself in a few years, but will require a dedicated circuit, if electric, or upgraded supply pipe, if gas. Tankless heaters also have a tendency not to turn on at low flow rates, thus providing no hot water at all, and giving up a water tank is also loss of an emergency potable water supply in case of a natural disaster.

You can use a wire tester to determine if a wire is live. You canalso touch the positive wire on the ground wire, if the wireproduces a spark it is live.
\n. \nHow hot, hot water is all depends on the person themselves. Water boils at 212 0 F - (100 0 C ) and a jacuzzi is normally set at 105 0 F. If you think about it, your body temperature is 98.6 0 F and that is considered to be hot to some people..
It may be more a question of time as opposed to temperature, as at boiling point water starts to become steam, if you boiled the water for long enough, it would eventually completely evaporate, the process could of course be sped up by raising the temperature.

This is a common question among the illiterate. The term "hot-water heater" distinguishes it from water heaters used for other purposes beyond domestic hot water (e.g., washing). For example, a hydronic boiler also heats water, making it hot water, but only for use inside radiators. It is al…so proper to say "hot water heater", meaning that the heater results in a supply of hot water, not that it is starting with hot water. If you say, "half baked chicken", would that mean half a chicken was baked or a whole chicken baked half-way? The latter would be properly called "half-baked". Others have said: To bring it to a higher temperature of course (MORE)
Luke warm. Maybe room tep. To get it to work,you have to make sure the person is deeply asleep,and you have to make sure the person drank plenty of water before they fell asleep. Good Luck, ;)
Install a bigger water heater. This would only be efficient if you had a constant need for an increased volume and could bear the added cost of installing, operating and maintaining a larger heater. Or increase the temperature on the water heater so you use less to get warm water. This also has …its practical limits, where water could be delivered to the faucet at a dangerous temperature (over 130 F), unless properly controlled. Or install another water heater in parallel, giving you twice as much hot water before it starts getting cool. Larger facilities may have three or more heaters in parallel and another one in series for pre-heating the supply to the others. (MORE)
When it is hot enough to burn you. Water can burn around 105. Boiling is 212F.
Heat is transferred into the metal spoon from the hot liquid, and it will soon be at the same temperature as the liquid because the spoon's heat capacity is quite small compared to the water surrounding it.
definently hot water, it can be raised to any temperature.. sand is only hot because of the weather around it, meaning water can be or cant be hotter, depending on the temperature of each substance. hih ( hope i helped )
If you had a 5000W generator and bought another 3500W generator could you set them up to provide backup power to a 5500W appliance hot water heater?
Small backup generators usually do not have the ability to be paralleled. Some, notably Honda inverter-type generators do, using a special syncronizing cable. The EU1000i, EU2000i and EU3000is can be paralleled, but non-inverters such as the EB5000X cannot. If you try to parallel two generators th…at are not setup specifically for that purpose, you will wreck one or both of them and possibly hurt yourself. Don't try it.. Better to buy a single generator that has the capacity you need. (MORE)
Hot water tanks are typically fueled by gas and electric. First, if one or both utilities are shut off, you won't have hot water. Second, if the utilities are working, someone may have turned the thermostat off or too low. Third, you may have a bad thermostat. Some thermostats also shut off whe…n there is another problem with the tank. Fourth, hot water tanks get old. Rust may have built up inside the tank, flaked off the tank walls, and be blocking a sensor. Have a professional check the tank first. It may be wise to replace an old tank, and new tanks conserve more energy. It takes about an hour or less to uninstall and install a new tank. (MORE)
Is it switched on? is the filter clean? is the element and thermostat working properly?
If you mean the appliance that heats water before it comes out of the water tap, there are several: the most common being the tank water heater (usually installed in a basement, heater closet or other central location near the water main) and the inline on-demand heater (usually installed very close… to the faucet).. If you mean the water after it is in the bathtub, there are a wide variety of submersible water heaters of varying power ratings. There are also spa type and hottub additions to bathtubs that force water jets through the tub while it heats the water, the ones I have seen are about as expensive as a small hottub. (MORE)
Water steams up by the weather. water doesn't steam up and go hot in countries like Antarctica and other cold countries. Like with human bodies, in horrendous weather you are cold and in extremely hot weather you are warm. Basically: Water depends on the weather.
In an oven. The "hot" wire is in series with the ove thermostat and provides an isolated circuit for turning on the oven element(s).
In the electrical trade it has taken on the meaning that a circuit has been energized. e.g. Is the circuit for the appliance plugs hot? . The above answer correctly addresses the normal trade interpretation of the question.. But if the question was asked by a non-member of the electrical trade… and is asking what it means if an appliance's plug is literally "hot" in the sense of having a hot temperature or "feeling hot to the touch", it means that the wires have become loose in the terminals inside the plug and are getting hot because of the resulting high resistance.. If they are not tightened up urgently the plug and its wiring could easily catch on fire because the circuit breaker protecting the circuit may not trip to cut off the current. It may not trip because its rated tripping current may never be reached even though the plug and its flex are burning.... So, if no-one is there to switch off the current and remove the plug from its socket outlet when its starts to give off smoke and a bad smell, that is the exact cause of many bad house fires every year! . So at least get those wires tightened up or, better, get that old plug and its flex replaced by new ones!. . As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to. call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.. Before you do any work yourself, on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances, always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized. . IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB SAFELY AND COMPETENTLY REFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS. . (MORE)
The lots of the wasted energy from appliances are emitted as heat energy and the heat is dissipated into the atmosphere this makes it hot. The rest of the useful energy is transformed to light energy.
It is called this as it heats up or brings up the temperature of cold water to hot. In other words, it is producing hot water by heating it. Some people incorrectly believe it is redundant to refer to "hot water" and "heater", but there are many other types of heaters, so the distinction of one crea…ting hot water is entirely proper.

It's easy.Boil it. You will need to have the particles gain kinetic energy so they move around faster, and that will make the liquid warmer.
It eventually cools to the temperature of its surrounding environment. For example, when you put an ice cube on your kitchen table, it won't stay an ice cube because the surrounding environment (the kitchen, which is about 75 o Fahrenheit) is far too warm, and will eventually melt the ice cube. … This same principle can be used for why hot water doesn't stay hot. Unless the surrounding environment is as hot as the water, the water won't stay hot. Plus, water has a very high heat capacity (meaning it can absorb a lot of heat before actually feeling warmer), so constant high temperature on the water is necessary to make it remain hot. (MORE)
The heat from the stove makes hot water because like the food when you use the stove it makes it hot to. right?
You should keep your water above 140 F to discourage growth but once you get to 160 F burns can occur in something like 3 secs.
If water does not conduct electricity why do you have to be careful with electrical appliances around water?
Pure or distilled water such as most rain water will not conduct electricity, but that is only true if it has not come in contact with impurities that are conductive. If you have water on your floor and an electrical charge such as a naked hot wire from your house electrical system falls into it, yo…u will be harmed or killed if you touch the water. At this time it is not about how clean the water is, but how clean your floor is. Most contaminates and minerals make pure water conductive on a microscopic level and therefore, electrons will have a walk way to get from where they are to where you are. Something as simple as placing baking soda or salt in pure distilled water will make a lethal combination when you add electricity. Hope this helps. (MORE)
Yes it is. You can dissolve powder milk in hot water and also dissolve it in hot tea ( both with same temperatures) and the dissolving rate will be the same. The dissolving of a solute in a solvent depends on the temperature.
that all depends on how hot you can get whatever it is that you are using to heat it.....
it depends on the size of the tank, how well insulated the tank is, the ambient temperature and how hot the water was initially as set by the thermostat.
Glass conducts electricity well letting the heat flow through it. 2. OOPS! (it is only at very high temperatures that glass conducts electricity, and even then it is not a good conductor.) And glass is not a very good conductor of heat, but it will conduct heat albeit slowly.
It sounds like your heating element is out, check your breaker also it may have triped.
you have a question that can have many different answers . here is a list I would check first to your problem. 1. is your pilot light out or if a forced air WH is it plugged in with power to it? 2. Is your gas line on or do you have gas to your water heater? 3. look up your water heater manual guide… and go through the trouble shoot guide list because the rest of the problems are so different from so many different kinds of water heaters and not knowing what kind of water heater you have it is impossible to answer.

Put simply, a correctly designed and fitted system does not lose pressure. I would guess that there is a pinch point somewhere in your system. This allows the pressure to get up to normal when the system is a rest, only to reduce as the water further up the pipe cannot get through the pinch point…. Possibly there are too many bends in the system, each bend reduces the water flow. If you lose pressure /volume while a faucet is running the cause could be mineral deposits inside the piping. The trouble could be at the hot water tank as many installers forget to install a dieelectric fitting such as a nipple or union (MORE)
Generally, when a substance is warmed up, it also expands a little. But as you're not adding any more stuff to it, the density has to go down as the volume goes up. So as long as some of the water is warmer than the water around it, that water will try to rise to the top.
have you tried an electric kettle?

Anywhere, but cheap water heaters says it. They're going to be cheaply made. Most places sell water heaters around the same price.
try covering the glass, so the heat particles stay inside the cup, and the hot water stays hot.
Even deionized water can be dangerous with electrical appliancesbecause many such appliances contain nearby surfaces with asufficiently high electrical potential difference between them toionize water itself and thereby make the water electricallyconducting.

Why do you have no cold water flow in the upstairs bathroom when the hot water works fine and no other tap or appliance has an issue?
A blockage in the faucet, depending on type it may need either a washer or seal replaced. Minerals may have built up in either the supply line on that side or the shut off valve under the sink. Shut the water supply off, take the line loose from the faucet and put the end of the line in a bucket and… slowly turn on the water. If none comes out, take the line loose from the valve and try blowing through it. If it is clear, it is either the shut off valve or the supply line in the house. (MORE)
There is no single answer to that question. Water can be a widevariety of temperatures from freezing at 0Â°C / 32Â°F up to100Â°C/212Â°F, which are the boiling points.
