Water heater heat traps are a crucial component of modern water heaters that help to prevent heat loss and improve energy efficiency.
Heat traps are small flaps that are installed by manufacturers in the hot and cold water lines at the top of the water heater. They prevent hot water from flowing back into the cold water line, thereby reducing heat loss and maintaining the water temperature inside the heater.
Heat traps are important because they help to reduce the amount of energy needed to maintain the desired water temperature. This results in lower energy bills and a more environmentally-friendly water heating system.
Heat traps also help to extend the lifespan of the water heater by reducing the stress on electric heating elements.
In conclusion, heat traps are a small but important component of modern water heaters. They help to improve energy efficiency, reduce heat loss, and extend the lifespan of the water heater.
