Electric Water Heater Element Repair Citrus Heights

Fairly straightforward. Look at watts and volts printed on end of each element. Match volts shown on element.
Look at water heater label located on side of tank
Label shows volts and watts/ upper element / lower element/ total connected watts / buy same wattage or less wattage
Some tanks have higher wattage on upper element, and lower wattage on lower element… might save money
All new water heaters come with high density elements. Replace with high or low density as long as watts and volts are same.
No loss of efficiency choosing either low or high density.
Lower watt density tend to last longer. Lower wattage can also last longer.
Foldback elements including Camco 5-year warranty elements (shown above) are for problem water with high mineral content
Residential: Both elements are never ON at same time… upper element ON -or lower element ON -or both elements OFF
Do not connect Solar Panel (DC photovoltaic) directly to water heater element. DC amps can melt AC elements
