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.
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 demand not 5 minutes after you turn it on.

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, E…U2000i and EU3000is can be paralleled, but non-inverters such as the EB5000X cannot. If you try to parallel two generators that 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.
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 basemen…t, 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.
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 addre…sses 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. .
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 tra…nsformed to light energy.
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 g…et 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
have you tried an electric kettle? Use an electric boiler 220 - 440 V When oil delivery or natural gas is not available or an open flame is impracticable such as ship board …or medical facilities where oxygen or other combustible fuels are present or when one needs to "boost" the water temperature to kill bacteria or other water borne diseases
Not on commercial property also it would help tremendously if you check the lease
Anywhere, but cheap water heaters says it. They're going to be cheaply made. Most places sell water heaters around the same price.
I would definitely consider it a major appliance.

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 val…ve 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.
