Water heater wiring- It is so special. Wenatchee and Quincy Home Inspection
Well as a home inspector in the land of electricity almost every water heater I see is an electric water heater. I actually feel pretty lucky about that. I don’t have to worry about draft hoods, B-vents, combustion air, drip legs, carbon monoxide and all the other fun that goes with gas heaters.
But it has not gone unnoticed that the simple act of getting the electrical power to the water heater seems to be a bit of a challenge to perform correctly.
I see many a water heater that has been improperly wired. So here is a few that may make you wonder.
They really are not that hard to do and do right, but often people are in the “just make it work” modality.
So in the rush to get the hot shower or bath the installation becomes a little less than professional. Doing it right really does not take that much more time and will be infinitely safer.
