Water Heater Overview

Storage Hot Water Heaters: An Overview

The most common hot water heaters in homes and businesses tend to be storage or “tank-type” units that heat anywhere from 25 to 100 gallons of water at a time. At StrikeCheck in 2018, 47% of our plumbing equipment claims were water heater related (StrikeCheck 2019 Annual Claims Report). At that rate, an insurance adjuster like yourself is likely to see a water heater claim cross your desk, and when it does, you’ll want to be prepared to handle that claim quickly and accurately. 

To help, we made a guide to storage hot water heaters geared towards insurance adjusters handling such claims. We want you to be equipped with the information you need to make the right call, including the basics of water heaters, how they work, key components, likely causes of damage, and statistics. Readied with this information in hand, you’ll be more confident in your ability to effectively address these claims.
