Replacement of Paloma PH-20SX Gas Heater to resolve heater problems end of service life.

After

Replaced Rinnai REU-2024W-RS and corroded sections of cold water copper piping with new piping. Utilised single-use fittings during the replacement to ensure optimal joint integrity. Reconnecting old fittings again risks erosion, particularly in high-speed water systems, and raises the chance of corrosion in water and gas piping. This increases the risk of water or gas leaks. Replaced the faulty cold water sensor as part of overall maintenance to ensure optimal functionality.

PH series gas Water Heater models certified by the American Gas Association (AGA) Paloma Industries, lnc. established in USA in April 1973.
The Paloma PH-20SX gas heater is a type of space heater that utilizes natural gas or propane to generate heat.
Here’s an overview of its type, efficiency, and safety features:
1. Type: The Paloma PH-20SX is a vented gas heater, which means it requires proper ventilation to operate safely.
Vented gas heaters exhaust combustion gases to the outside.
They do this through a flue or chimney.
This ensures that harmful by-products like carbon monoxide are safely expelled from the indoor environment.
2. Efficiency: The efficiency of the Paloma PH-20SX gas heater can vary.
Factors such as its design, insulation, and the quality of installation influence this variance.
Gas heaters are generally considered more efficient than electric heaters.
This is because natural gas and propane, which they utilize, are typically less expensive energy sources compared to electricity.
The efficiency of any specific model should be evaluated based on its Energy Factor (EF) rating or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating.
3. Safety Features: Gas heaters should always be used with caution to prevent the risk of fire, carbon monoxide poisoning, or other hazards.
Following manufacturer instructions and ensuring proper ventilation is essential for safe operation.

Gas Heater not Working

If your gas heater is not working, there could be a number of possible causes.
One common issue is a lack of gas flow, which can occur if the gas valve is turned off or if there is a problem with the gas supply.
A malfunctioning thermocouple or ignition system might be another cause.
This issue can prevent the heater from starting properly.
Check gas supply and line for issues before troubleshooting gas heater problems.
