The Tank Is this Normal? Reply To: Is this Normal?

Hello: Yes, it’s normal. The tank is thermostatically controlled. It slowly cools down from heat loss over time. When it cools enough, the thermostat says to itself, “I’m COLD, this won’t do!” and it turns on gas to the burner to reheat the tank back up to the set point… Only people who have thought way too much about water heaters can actually hear them talk 😎 No need to ask how I know that.

Yours, Larry
